Not much art today....

Sitting here knowing I have to start the major cleaning up....we have a wedding in less than two weeks....and I have to do some sort of "spring cleaning" or "wedding cleaning" of my entire house. Where to start???The task seems a little big and I would much rather hide in my studio and create some fun new ART.

Almost 2009

Today the last bit of Christmas was moved out and the vacuum is now stuffed with pine needles and dust bunnies. Our daughter and fiance left after a wonderful week here with us...so now I have my studio back. YIPPEE!!!I love to have them here don't get me wrong but I miss my studio. They will be back in less than 2 weeks for the bid day....their wedding day...

We are traveling up to the Sacramento area to visit our good friends for NEW YEAR and can't wait to see them again.

Other than that today was mellow...we met with the caterers at the reception location and had a nice lunch with our future "in laws" and very good friends. We all can't wait to be family!!!

Have to try and figure out how to get back on track with our family website tonight...my husband is sick of all the honey do's so this one will have to be on me. :)

I cleaned out Christmas....

Christmas came and left..Today I cleaned it out...Feels pretty good to have some extra space in the living room again (the tree took up half the room). The new year is around the corner and so many things happening. The wedding is now 2 weeks away (on the day) and I go back to work the day after the wedding. The little girl I am showing you today is from my art journal....Water color pencils and some oil pastels and lots of FUN. I am still totally addicted to my ART JOURNALS and can't wait to start the NEW MOLESKINE I received for Christmas...Happy NEW YEAR.

All better (finally)

Finally feeling better....and it hit me....only 6 days until Christmas!!!!!!!!!! I have to kick up the speed. Plenty to bake and cook, even more to shop and try very hard not to end up in my wonderfully warm and cozy studio and get sidetracked creating ART.

Sick of being sick....

So sick of being sick....missing work....no help to my family....or friends... They all need me right now and all I can do is being sick. Have the worst chest cold and have to call the good old Doctor tomorrow if it is not better. Keeping the fingers crossed.
I just became a brand new Aunt the other day and can't even go to visit her :(
Enough self pity...I can lay in bed and read books on Mixed Media Collage Art while I cough.
The Art Journal is just laying in my studio waiting for me. Maybe tomorrow.

My daughters ART

This is some of my oldest daughters latest ART. It has moved into my studio for some drying time.....I hope it can stay for a while since I love this piece. I am still home sick...yuck...and this cold has settled in my chest. Don't even feel like creating today and that will tell you I am not feeling well. My little niece was born yesterday, welcome Olivia and I can't even go to see her :(
Did some reading up on new background techniques for my Art Journal though and found some fun ideas. Maybe I will try some later...

SO.....Finally I have uploaded some pics of my Art Journal.... This has turned into a small obsession and I absolutely LOVE to Journal with Art...

These are just the first two pages of my first Art Journal and there will be many more to come...

I am home from work with a nasty cold and have been in my Studio in my PJs all day. I will be a brand new Aunt any minute and can't wait. My son is in heavy study mode for finals and my youngest daughter on her way home from school. My oldest daughter gets married in a month....Panic....

I will try to update some colors etc. on my blog for now....more Art Journal pics to come.
Sneeze from ME :)
