blue birds

I know these photos are a bit rough. One collage is on a hardbook cover, the others are on recycled shipping evelopes.

for the love of buttons

Add me to the list...I loved Coraline. Really wonderful. When I heard the movie was being made, I decided not to read the book. I wanted to love the movie. I hope the DVD chock full of behind-the-scenes goodies. I just wish the They Might Be Giants song was full length. The website has fun stuff....

I'm still looking for that camera cord..ugh I made some cool new collages!!!!

Yay Mac!

MacGyver is the man! Remember that show? Last night we ended up watching a few episodes on Sleuth network or whatever that channel is called. I like the show still, cheesy fight scenes and excessive use of stock footage and all. With his trusty knife, a paper clip, and duct tape, he can battle any bad guy. I think my fondness for the show is what lured me to Stargate SG1. More Richard Dean Anderson. Even the frequent Simpsons jokes about our gunless hero. Oh and a Mythbusters episode. So timeless....Gotta love the Mac.

Ok so I can't post anything new and I've made a lot. At the moment I can't find my camera cord to download photos. My mom is going to say "You lost it again!" It has to be around the house somewhere!
Wonderful artwork coming soon.

I found this cartoon here

Anti-Valentine's Day swap

Isn't this the coolest? I got this from my swap partner and I love love love it!
Below is what I sent to my swap partner...I was so happy to find out she loved her's too! I guess the only thing I don't like about Swap-Bot is what I send out goes to someone different than who sends to me.

Happy Birthday Lucky!!!

Lucky today....a fuzzy photo of a fuzzy dog! Can you believe how much his coloring changed?
Our Lucky pup was born 5 years ago on Friday February 13th.
My has he grown!

He was so small a cat collar was too big! Such a cute little guy...
When we decided it was time for Emma to get a dog, we searched the local shelter. Emma fell in love with a cute Lab/shepard mix named Lucky. With my allergies he was a no go, but she was determined to name her dog Lucky. When we found the "right" dog, he became our Lucky. Then we found out he was born on Friday the 13th!
What Luck!

Swap Stuff

First of all...everyone is healthy...yay! Can you believe in the end we found out Ethan had scarlet fever and a virus! Just his luck.
V is for Vivian
for a Gashlycrumb Tinies inspired swap

I guess for an actual couplet it would have to be ----
U is for Ursula in a dishwasher was mangled
V is for Vivian in Kudzu was strangled

This is for a Vintage Dotee In a Jar swap

coffee table crafting

all it needs is a ribbon hanger

Sunny winter day and me working in the basement. No way! On nice days I take over the dining table or the coffee table. These photos are actually almost 2 weeks old. Today it feels like spring...46 degrees!!!! WOW!

Ethan is still sick! Day four of stuffy nose, sore throat, slight fever, and day two of hives. Not fun!

Being Sick SUCKS!

I hate it when the kids are sick! Both of the kids missed school on Monday, Emma also missed Tues. Ethan was home again today...ugh! Being sick is bad enough, but the pressure to not miss too much school is there also. Tomorrow I am supposed to go to Eau Claire, WI to place artwork in a new shop, Tangled Up In Hue. We'll see how he feels. Oh and I'm sick too but I can deal with that.
