Anyone still out there?
Twelve long (but needed) days....
I've missed all of you!!!
I feel like it's been all summer. What's new? How's summer? Is it over for you-in the sense that your kids are back in school? Has the heat wave broken in the south? What about Oklahoma? Any last minute summer get aways?
Here's what's been going on here:
Miss Brenna is officially 17 and will tell anyone who will listen. She said to me, "Why do people keep telling me I'm old??"
Lauren is off into the land of college. "See you in three months, Mom!" Ha. Sooner, if I have a say in it.
My house is trashed from the after math of my eldest leaving the nest again, but we have been having fun in the midst of it all.
I am continuing in my e-course by Kelly Rae Roberts. I am leaning so much! Blogging, marketing, dreaming, setting goals, time managemen, creating, social networking...the list goes on. I am overwhelmed at times, but each day I get back on track and forge ahead.
I'm actually creating. Yep. My blog that is supposed to be about art and life has been mostly life these last several months and I really would like to turn back to the ART side of things!!
Here's a peek:
I have been adding to the journal I started in when I took the class from
The color on this page is done with my new favorite toy,
My newest love......
Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Artist's Crayons.
They can be found at Dick Blick's, or a much smaller set like mine, at Michael's.
I'm also learning to write in different fonts....Lauren turned me onto dafont.com.
Gazillions of FREE FONTS. Literally.
I'm using a Faber-Castell Pitt pen in black.
It's perfect for filling in or making etchy-lines.
and little-bitty dots!
On this sweet envelope I used a mailing stamp that I found at an antique store and added more color with ink pads and the crayons.
So happy to be back in the swing of Blogland.
Stop by and tell me what you have been up to so we can catch up!!
