up early wanted to be dressed and showered before the roof guys get her
I am visions of me running around naked well I forget about a blind
I haven't closed, and one of them on a ladder looking at me,
and so horrified by the sight he falls of the ladder (lol)
So I am going out for the day because the noise is
going to drive me crazy, because every time
devil dog hears a noise she barks.
So enjoy your day and talk to you tomorrow.
The weather has turned where I live. Today is a sweater and sock day (I hate wearing socks, I like no socks and sandals), the wind is whipping up the trees, the trees are turning colour and falling on the roads. I love this time of year, not cold, but a nip in the air. Its time to whip up some comfort foods and get the fireplace ready. We are getting a new roof on our house this week, the supplies arrived today. In our area we live in, you have to have a wood shingle roof, green fence, all kinds of crazy rules. So its way more expensive than just getting a regular old roof. So that is our home project for this year, a new roof, and new shutters on the main floor, I might have o go back to work to pay for them (lol). I just got home from a few errands, took the devil dog out for a walk, now she is passed out in the den, and I have to think about cooking supper. Ok I need a cook, I need to win the Lotto, have a cook and a daily cleaner come to my house, so I could play art all day, because these daily chores are getting in the way of my art. Truthfully I think I was more organized when I worked, I was able to get all things accomplished and create something.
So I have been Christmas shopping I try to get it done way before Christmas rush Because I cant stand the stress of it all. I cant last minute shop it makes me crazy. I like to have them all bought and wrapped by December 1. I am going to finish it all off when I am in Phoenix in October that is my plan.
Ok you know how Oprah has her favourite things show. I am going to tell you every wednesday 1 favourite thing of mine for 10 weeks. . So here it goes, my favourite thing this week is
what did I do before I found these, they are amazing, easy to store, can get lots of storage in them. Try them you will be amazed. I got a box of 7 space bags all sizes at Walmart for 19.00. and worth eveery penny.
OK I don't know what was wrong with me yesterday I cant even blame it on PMS, but as I re-read that post today I just cringed. I am not a whiner, I just need to get over it, so I am over it. And thanks to everyone who commented and made me feel so good.
Today its beautiful, its a stat holiday, I am bbq ribs, corn on the cob, Caesar salad, and Parmesan fries in the oven. I am having the shopper aka the daughter over. The sun is shining I might go on the deck with a nice cool margarita, and a art book and enjoy myself.
The above is an old piece I might have shown before, I did in my sketch journal.
Just a peek into my junk journal, I had not nearly finished it. but I thought I would give you a sneak peek, I am having fun working in, all the lines make something else. Like a puzzle.
I am again trying to change up the blog, do you like this font or is it to hard to read? I am trying to get more traffic over here. I have thought about turning off the comments, and taking off the stats, that way I wont know when nobody reads this blog and what I dont know wont hurt me. Do you have a trick getting traffic to your blog, I know I dont live an exciting life, so sometimes its humdrum. I posted just about everyday for the past three months, more posting didnt do the trick. I dont know why I care, because when I first started I didnt care if anyone read my blog. Oh well for those of you who do read my blog thanks.
Here are a few pics from my junk journal. Remember when I said I was not taking anymore classes, while I decided to take two more. And I happen to love them, the first one is from Carla Soneheim where she makes and show you how to make a junk journal, and then you draw some funky animals in them. I will show you when I am done, and I promise I will finish this class. Half way there already and a junk journal made.
The other class I am taking is the Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen class on Collage, I love collage, but I don't just like to throw it down, I want it to look like art. And that is what i am learning in there class. They put alot of effort into the classes, lots of great videos, pdfs, and answers to questions you might have. Chris and Julie both have great knowledge about paint. I highly recommend this class, if you want to expand your knowledge base as an artists. I sound like a commercial for her, I promise you she is not paying me to say this stuff (lol).
Today I went to my favourite inspiration place, IKEA when I need a pick me up I go there, to the fabric, to the pillows. It gets my motor running. I did of course purchase some stuff, you cant leave that place and not buy.
Well better go and get some stuff done around here, whats on your agenda today.
