Now on

In all my fury of completing a few projects, vacuuming dog hair and posting to my blog, I also found some time to post some of my new work on Etsy. This is a great place for handmade art and really fun stuff. Check it out.

This is my first time to post art on this site and we will see how it goes. One of my blog obsessions is design*sponge and the writer had been talking about collages recently. I thought I might go ahead and post some pieces in case there are more collage-obsessed folks out there that I can help.

I will update my page soon, but in the meantime you can check it out by clicking here...

Busy Bee

Have I been busy! I took today off to work of some new stuff for the art fair coming up in June. It was a great day because I got lost at The River Market Antique Mall for two and a half hours. I found some great books to use in my, trees, birds and dogs. One book is all about wild pigeons. Who knew pigeons could be so colorful!? I always thought they were flying rats. Anyhoo...

I took some time tonight and scanned in some of the pieces that I've been working on. These are all 6x6 on wrapped canvas, which means they are ready to hang. Enjoy...

My apologies

I apologize that I haven't been good about updating the blog lately. I don't have much to report on because I have been hard at work in my "cinder block studio" trying to get some pieces done for the PV art Show. I've determined that I need to finish two pieces each day to get the desired number of pieces for the show. Well...I'm a long way from two pieces per day. I actually plan to take the day off from work on Monday to get some pieces done!

I promise to scan and post them here as soon as they are ready for viewing.

I also have a desire to start posting a few pieces to just to see what happens. It seems that all of the really great home decor and design sites that I check out refer to Etsy quite a bit. Who knows...maybe I could get "discovered" on there!?

Not much else is new in my life. I've told Chris that we need to plan a vacation just so I have something to talk about. We are boring. Check back soon.

Bring it on

I don't know about you, but I am ready for some warm weather. The lovely pictures of plants I posted last week...well, all of those plants are dead. Why did we get teased with such pretty weather and then suddenly it's cold and everything is dead!? I'm over it.

I've been a busy little bee getting ready for the Prairie Village show. I need to really get in gear to accomplish what I think I need to accomplish prior to the show.

Until next time, here is a piece that reminds me of summer...

Did I do that?

I have already told this story to a few of you, but...

I went to a bachelorette party a few weeks ago and drove myself home at 1:30 in the morning. I truly was fine to drive, only having about 3 beers.

Flash forward to Saturday morning when I pulled into the YMCA parking lot (note: Had I had more than three beers I wouldn't have even considered the Y as an option on an early Saturday morning). I pulled into the parking spot and glanced into the rear view mirror to see red blood all over the back of my rear window. "Holy s*#t! I couldn't have killed someone or something on my way home. Could I? I was fine to drive!" I got out and observed a bit more closely. I couldn't honestly rule out blood. Rather than going into the Y, I decided to head back home and try to figure this mystery out.

I pulled into the driveway, got out of the car and realized that the blood was all over the driveway and up and down the sidewalk. Whew! At least if I killed someone, it was a neighbor that was walking in front of my house at 1:30 a.m. Idiot.

I touched my finger to the "blood" and my finger was instantly stained a bright pink. Yes, pink. Woo Hoo! It wasn't blood. I was just the victim of a crazy bunch of pranksters having fun on St. Patty's.

Long story short...I couldn't decide if I should take pictures, call the police or take my car to get cleaned and if so, in what order? I took pictures. I washed my car. The paint mostly came out. I then filed a police report. Turns out it happened to a few other cars on the block. I headed back to the Y.

Just happy that it's spring

I have nothing new to report other than I did NOT get into the Smoky Hill River Festival in Salina. (Waa Waa...Debbie Downer). I'm Ok with it though because the show is the weekend following the Prairie Village art show and the thought of preparing for two shows right, when I've never even done one, is a bit daunting.

I've been struggling to lure myself into my dark basement when it is so beautiful and springy outside. Yesterday was awesome. Today is pretty, but chilly. Did everything turn green overnight or what!? I love it! And I love the Plaza Easter Bunnies. I miss you, Amy and Bess! Happy spring everyone.
