Meet Mango!

Here's the new little monster who lives in our house!
We rescued him in November and it has been so much fun.
Even the cat likes him. They're both love bugs and one will lay across my legs and the other my chest.

Slow journal

I made this journal when we first moved here in 2012. I can't believe it's already been 2 years. A girl in the journaling group I joined taught us to make these. It's still my favorite paper to work on. Nice and heavy. I pull it out every now and then and add a layout.

I'm still here!

Hello friends! I have missed you!
It has been a busy year and a good one. I haven't done a ton of art but find time for art journaling.
I will post pictures soon and be visiting my blog friends.

Happy (early) New Year!

Halloween "card" idea

Instead of cards....how about a creepy doll head in a little box for the holidays! I found some of these for a dollar in a local antique shop. Just add red paint, pack in box, add Halloween greeting, and you have a great way to freak out friends and family.

New Opportunity!

Hello Everyone!
 
I am really excited about a new opportunity here in Franklin, IN. A cute boutique opened up recently, and I am now selling my cards and sketchbooks there! It's called Simplify, offering all kinds of handmade goods by local artists. I am thrilled to be a part of it! Here are some pics of my display and some new cards. I have kicked into high gear getting inventory for the shop, and I'm starting a full time job this Tuesday as well. It was a big week!
 



Card Mania!
 
 
Some close ups!
 





My new friend, Franklin, hanging with me all day. Love him!

Unfinished Dolls

I found this lost box of dolls at the auction. They all needed to come home with me.

Recent Auction Finds

I have become completely addicted to the auction. Here are some finds over the past few weeks.
The old photographs are just a small sampling of the 52 pictures I got for $10.
 
There are several colored portraits that amaze me. I think I will frame some for my own walls.
 

I really love this one. Something about her look.





She looks like a fun girl!



 
I do love faces.
