I spent two beach vacays practically back to back.
This awesome stamp set along with an extra gift of photo cards from Darkroom Door owner Rachel (how DID she know this would be the perfect photochip set for me??)! I won it thru this blog that I had only recently started following because I love Autumn's style of card making. I am dying to create with these but just haven't had the time yet.
Did get my Mother's Day card done for this coming Sunday:
Linking to the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Hint of Pink).
Another reason I have not gotten much art done since coming home is because-our son got a new job!!! It is definitely a step up career wise, position wise and income wise. And because he will be working from home which is our home until his new apartment is ready (this has been dragging on since March!) I have had to clear off my art desk/table so he can set up the top of the line computer equipment they sent him. Talk about scrambling to put things in other places! Most all my paints, etc. etc. are in the drawers below this desk and as this will be his temporary office I'm not sure how I'll be able to manage. We celebrated over the weekend with dinner, cake and yes, champagne!
Joining my friends over at Elizabeth's T Stands For Tuesday. So looking forward to catching up with you all.
One final bit of art. Another journal page from the online Quirky Birds class I've taken by Tamara LaPorte. It began like this:
Linking to Art Journal Journey for the theme of elegance and grunge hosted by Gill, and to Paint Party Friday. Also linking to Moo Mania with the theme of "head gears". Thank you dear Susi! Excited to be catching up with everyone again!
