More from December

Just two for now.  I will be working a 72 hour shift starting in the morning and need to get some rest! It's amazing how many hours you can rack up during the holiday season.
This first spread is all about envelopes!  Yes envelopes.  I love envelopes for some reason.  I think they're very special because they can hold all kinds of suprises, like the keys to wonderful treasure, maps that mark the spot to untold monies and other valuable things.  They can carry good news and bad news.  Your cute little paycheck that you worked hard for or endless bills that you think now you should have known better.  But all my envelopes have gone to the dogs because all I ever get are bills and an occasional paycheck.  Thank the gods for email!

The second spread is a prompt from Sarah Whitmire's twitter prompts.  The first prompt asks us to use a card in the spread, of course I love the joker! I wanted to try a new color combination and ended up really liking the results. I also like the way…

New Stuff in November and December

These past couple of month have been a complete change from the past year.  I lost my 88 year old client to Alheimzers who lived 75 miles from me.  So my dear client and comute is over, which is sad in so many ways. In spite of the comute I was able to bring my computer and art supplies therefore stay active on the internet and keep creating for the three days I was there.

I have a new client who will be 90 years old in 2010, who is in good health and a joy in her own right.  She only lives 15 miles from me but alas, no internet connection or space for me to create art.

So I'm back to a very lopsided exsistance, 3 days with no internet or art and then 4 days off.  I'm having to deal with art and internet withdrawal!  And of course tis the season to be busy, busy, busy! 

All these pages are from my composition book that I got from Walmart for $1.29.  I love that I don't have to worry, just have fun and total freedom....cheap books....cheap paints....priceless fun!

Raw Edge Quilt

Here's my latest project.  I saw this on CRAZY MOM QUILTS and so loved the raw edge aspect of it!  Thank you so much amandajean for giving such clear and easy instructions.  I'm having a ball doing this.  It was so easy to make this project mine. I have all the squares just a little off, like me! It's perfect.

Just wanted to let all of you know that I am having fun doing this blog too.  I've haven't been real good at getting around to posting here at artstudio49, but it was never my intention to stay to a rigid schedule, and this is proof!




I'm ready to start quilting.  The back is a white on white Hawaiian print of ferns and Hibiscus flowers with two uneven strips of a Navy Blue background fabric with the same type of flowery print. I hope you can see the pattern of the white because it looks fabulous with the navy blue. The other great thing about this quilt is that it is entirely made up of scraps that were in my closet just sitting there doing nothing.




So I w…
