With thoughts of Spring in mind I made this postcard:

Linking to the Simon Monday Challenge Blog (theme is "B is for..." ), and the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #10 (theme is "Birds Of A Feather").
And for my friends at T Stands For Tuesday hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth I am sharing this pic of what I've been drinking while in my art room:
In warmer weather I fill it to the top in the AM and finish it by the evening. Lately I've been so cold that I only fill it 3/4ths of the way because I'm drinking more coffee and tea to keep me warm. I'm sure I've shared this bottle before. I think it holds 64 oz.
This is an art journal page I made to replicate an old plaster wall. For some reason I have been so drawn to making backgrounds with this theme in mind. I did one the other week, and I'm now working on a third one. For this page I used a handmade paper that has some thick areas and thin areas which give it a great "bumpy" appearance. I added just a bit of muted color then adhered the tissue paper cherub and the dream heart clipped from a magazine. Linking this to Art Journal Journey (this month's theme is Things With Wings) and Mix It Monthly (theme this month is Angels/ Saints).
Back in Nov/ Dec I mentioned helping care for hubby's great uncle. Thankfully he's managing pretty well on his own and on Wednesday I am picking up his sister so we can check on the house and then we're all going for lunch to celebrate his 95th birthday!! It is truly amazing to me that both Truman and Betty live alone in their own homes and can pretty much take care of themselves. We're also celebrating my birthday which is on Sunday. That's also my blogiversary so at the end of this week I will have a little something to share with all of you to celebrate :)
Have a great week everyone. I hope the weather is cooperating in your neck of the woods too.
