Recipe Box

My Graphic 45 Le Cirque recipe mini turned into a box. Ran out of paper so used the scraps to decorate the top and paper tape for the border. Love the corner plate stamps. Added a surprise inside the top. Some of my original art. The three amigos.

Occupied Japan China

Christmas came early this year! Found this China on facebook today. A friend from high school posted about her mother having a barn sale. My sweet husband stopped by after work and bought it for me. She gave me a wonderful deal and I feel like a new bride. Have always wanted a set and at fifty five I've waited a long time. So worth it. Going to eat off it every day and going to start drinking green tea so I can use the cup and saucer too. Her mother was pretty horrified that I plan on using it but life is too short for "good dishes".

Here is another shot of my "chandelier". Pretty huh? I haven't been able to sleep for two weeks. Wrapping all those antique necklaces into chains made my carpel tunnel act up. Click photo's to enlarge.

I made this fun Katz Drug Co. collage with the Sunday paper. If you are from Kansas City you will remember Katz. Really like working in the moleskine again. I like the size.

More crystal chains

Added some more crystals and chain to my "chandelier". Love it! Best part about this project is I can unhook it and wear it anytime I want. Two, two projects in one.

lake poem

This poem was written for a friend's husband celebration of life ceremony. I thought it was so beautiful I had to put it in my journal. The background is our family spot at the Lake of the Ozarks.

1925 journal

Played with my new pencils for the last page. This is an art project I found online from a 5th grade teacher. So fun!

Christmas fun

Buster got into the fun this year! The glitter ornaments came out perfect! Future floor wax and glitter. Simple and no mess next year.

red beans and rice

This was too spicey for me but my husband loved it!

crystal chain

The chain is so subtle that you can't tell it took me three days to wire it. Ugh. I may have to add even more.

Aunt Jemima's page

I have left a few pages as is. Guess Aunt Jemima goes all the back to 1925. The left page I did a mandala using some of my new inktense pencils. Love that felt green.

Halloween page

I mounted my last few years of Halloween cards to my 1925 journal. This will give them a place of honor and hopefully I will look at them more than once a year.
