and the days are flying by! I meant to post last week but it just didn't happen. Hubby was off all week so we did some fun things in between helping son and DIL pack and clean and begin moving in to their first home.
As you see here, my intentions were good- I made this journal page for Try It On Tuesday and Tag Tuesday for last week:
This is the first page I've done in the new Dina Wakley 8' x 10" kraft journal. Outside of my index card art I haven't had the time to create which is a shame because there have been some really wonderful free art lessons (for a limited time, hence my problem) online! I've tried to at least watch some and hopefully remember the steps to try some in the future.
Sunday after a long, busy few days prior we had my Mom's 80th birthday dinner. She celebrated with various friends and family throughout the week so the dinner I had was fairly simple and only our son and DIL were with us. Here are the only pics I have:
I made a vegetable lasagna, salad, garlic bread, and for dessert her favorite French cake. It's made with bittersweet chocolate and only 1/4 cup of flour. Since I had cleared the table and have no drink reference I will instead share this next photo for T Stands For Tuesday
Yes, it is Tour De France time again!! First time using this TDF mug- one of three in a set I bought last year. Bill and I are following all along the way and enjoying every bit of the race as well as the scenery (thankfully we can record it each day in case we miss a morning 😁). Anyone else watching? I'm pretty sure Chris
is 😉. Cheers!
Now to catch up with my index card art so far for the ICAD 61 day Challenge:
The above were the last three in my mini series of themed art.
My next series is vintage style using mostly Tim Holtz and ARTchix Studio products. Lots of layers using collage sheet images, transparencies, collage tissue, washi tape, Paper Dolls and Small Talk stickers (sentiments). Here are ICADS 31-41:
I'm so happy to be using lots of bits from my years of collecting vintage ephemera😜.
And that's all I have for now. My posts may be a bit sporadic with our son and DIL's move and her upcoming baby shower, in addition to watching the Tour De France everyday but I will try.
is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a
summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the
clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” John Lubbock
