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.


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.

Catching up

I had to have surgery a couple of weeks ago and I haven’t been doing much art since, at least none that I want anyone to see! Sometimes it just isn’t art. But I think maybe I am getting back into it. I haven’t made any ATC’s but I have been spending some time working in my art journals. It was really hard to do nothing for 2 weeks! I still have to take it easy the rest of the month but I don’t have to “do nothing”.

(I also won some very nice Die-cuts from the ATC_FUN Yahoo group for my recycled tissue box journal, Thanks Judy)

Here are a few pages that I don’t have too many issues with. I’m not really very good at doing collage but I keep trying! The yellow page with the bird on a limb was a bunch of scraps on my desk that I threw together and now I have no clue as to where its going from here, but it’s definitely not finished.

The flowers are just outside my gate. All the flowers grow outside the gate instead of inside. Oh well, at least I can still enjoy them!

Life and Art

I’m sorry I’ve been so long in updating this thing. Life got in the way of my art!

I do want to thank Sonja for the Versatile Blogger Award. I’m sorry that I never got around to doing anything about it. I appreciate you thinking of me.

I haven’t really been doing much artwork. A few ATC’s for a swap and a couple of journal pages. Hopefully next month will be a more productive time for me.

The first four photos are ATC’s and the last two photos are pages in a journal . The Owl is still in progress. I used tissue paper and an old paper grocery bag (man are these hard to come by) but lost interest for now. Poor Owl is pretty lonesome.
Thanks for stopping by.

New Cards

Here are the cards I finished for the new swap. The small ones are 1-1/4″X3″. I made 3 sets of them, 2 for the swap and one for myself. I don’t normally make myself a copy but these were so fast and easy I decided I wanted some for me. I also made regular size ATC’s for future use or maybe just to keep.
