So its Friday, any plans for the weekend. The weather here is so cold so not much is going to go on here. Though of course I am going to go out, you just cant not go out, dress for the weather. My scrapbook store, where I buy hoards of paper I don't use, is having a little competition, that \i thought I might enter. You cant either do a layout, not for me, make cards, not for me, or alter something. I thought I might alter something, I will take pictures along the way, so today is the day to go gather some of the needed supplies. I like the thought of the hunt. Did I tell you that I won a stamp making machine again at my scrapbook store, i just entered my name, and it was picked. Its by Theresa Collins, I won it just before my mom passed away, so I forgot all about it, till I saw in the studio, so I am going to give a try today. So what are you doing today.

put on models are I think damaging to a young girl, just starting out. You must be thin, thin have you seen some of those girls, I don't think they are naturally that thin, do they not eat anything.Its the lifestyle that\s also attractive, flying all over the world, wearing clothes from fabulous designers, being awed by millions. It is the opposite for a girl who has not the "perfect body|" and who defines perfect. The girl who has a normal body of a growing girl wants more, bigger boobs, a smaller waist, a straight nose and etc. So when do we as woman stop and say I have this body and its the way I want it. Is there a stopping point where we are happy with what we have....

I know you have seen my girl with the fish on her head before, but this time I just reused her again, but in a different setting, that is according to Pam Carriker how to reuse your art work. The house was a real estate ad that came in the mail, that I painted, the trailer, was a magazine picture, that I also painted. But as it happens it looked exactly the same as our trailer. I used some rub ons I had and paint. It works for me. I was remembering my family\s annual vacation every year. We had 2 weeks that is all my dad ever got. We went somewhere every year, we didn't have alot of money, we always had some kind of trailer or tent. This was our first trailer and it was called the Delee for my sister and I, my other sister was not born yet. We went all over BC with that trailer, it was small as hell, but we eat outside, cooked outside, and inside when it rained, but we had a great time.

I have been busy working in my art journal, as you will see in the coming days. I am like on some kind of roll, and you just have to go along with, even if it means staying up till the wee hours of the morning. Even though I have been retired for about 3 years now, I still have not got the routine down yet, where I go to the studio in the afternoon, instead of after supper. I have also been busy working on Julies class, finished a
project (clap your hands, first project I have ever finished from a online class), Alisa sketching class started
today. So I am going to be busy, plus we just switched over to a Cable Internet connection so now my
trusty laptop is not working with the router so I have to find out what is going on with that.
So what are you doing today?

this is my redo which I happen to love, and I have all the intense bluewater colour all over my fingers to prove it. It still needs something, but for now I am letting it go out into the world, via the bog and asking you . I think it needs maybe some journal ling under the fish, what do you say. How do you like my dog
I hvae been drawing funkafied animals lately.
Today I am off to the bank, walking Devil Dog while the weather is good, and back into the studio. You have to get there while the feeling is there. Also did two pages from Julies class, which I will show you tomorrow.
