done and done!

UPDATE:  I ended up buying the Chevrolet Traverse! It was between that and the Cadillac SRX. I love it, but the Traverse had a few more options and less miles on it (they wre both 2009).  The one we got is a dark grey, it has OnStar, sattelite phone, very low mileage, and looks and feels brand new. I love this car! Check it out!

On the Hunt

Hi to all my amazing friends and followers!  The last couple days I've been on a mission to find my new car! My husband John and I decided a couple of weeks ago we might need to start looking for me a new car since mine's got about 70K miles on it and I do quite a bit of driving for work. Besides that I've been wanting an SUV for a while. There are several on the road that I like, with a Buick Enclave and the Cadillac SRX in my two five.  Now, that is not to say I can afford one of those, but I am going to check it out to see...if not then I'll be looking at the Traverse and a Murano, which I like as well.

I'm getting ready to head into my studio and see what I can get into now! Hope you are all having a very happy and relaxing Sunday!

Well my mojo has been playing tricks on me but the past couple weeks it's come back full force! I have been eating, living and literally dreaming about paint, ink, canvas, papers and all things art!  I have a HUGE canvas sitting on my art table waiting on it's second coat of gesso and I've just finished a small canvas.  Here are a couple of my latest projects!  Wish me luck on the giant canvas!
This is my husband and sweet granddauther Sydney.  I love pictures of big burly guys with tiny little sweet! I made all the flowers, inked everything up with Tim Holtz turquoise and painted and distressed Dusty Attic scroll at the top of the circle...I got the piece at the Scrappy Chic Online store (see link to the left of my page to get your own!)  I will soon be adding a tutorial here on how to make the flowers...

This is a little box with magnetic lid that opens to hold small treasures.  It's for my granddaughter's nursery and it was so much fun to create! Lots of torn and distressed patterened paper and bling...

The last one is the painting I finished last weekend.  It's a abstract floral and I am soon going to paint two more similar to go with this one, which is hanging solo in my bathroom right now.
