HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

On one of my Yahoo groups, for the month of July, we were challenged to save something plastic from the landfill. I’m much better at saving paper from the landfill but when my son was younger and I had the energy for a garden we used to make wind spinners out of 2 liter bottles. So here is my contribution for July’s SAVE OUR EARTH.

I would like to give credit for this but it’s such an old idea I have no clue where it came from.

New things

Just a few things I’ve been working on.

more owls

The sewing bug is outta my system. I really am not meant to use a needle and thread. But I made one more stuffed owl. This one is suppose to be a barn owl, can you tell? I know, he needs a tweak here and there.

I also did a few quick paintings but only two that I like. Naturally, one is an owl.

Miscellaneous

I haven’t been doing too much lately. I’m so lazy! I made an apron for my 4 yo niece to wear when she paints. No sewing except for some buttons. Finally someone else in the family that likes art! I’m so proud. HA!

I have been cleaning my art area and found some felt pieces so I made some stuffed owls. The biggest is about 9 inches maybe and the smallest a little over 2 inches. I don’t sew very well but this was small enough that I didn’t get frustrated.

I did a few journal pages but I filed them under – Sometimes it just isn’t art – I did finally finish an owl painting. Or maybe it’s really a tree painting. It’s on an old canvas that I have painted over several times. Eventually I will probably paint over this one as well.

There are so many fabulous ATC swaps and Mixed Media swaps happening in my Yahoo groups. Maybe one of these days I can join in again. (Unfortunately I’ll be paying medical bills for a while)
