A Little Eye Candy...

Home is Where The Heart Is
I'm enamoured with  kitschy vintage campers
that a lot of women are fixing up and taking
Glamping.  In honor of, wishing I had one
of my very own, I decided to do some camper
 art instead :-)

I've created a few more Chunkyville houses to 
go with my other ones HERE.

And last but not least is my
finished chalkboard globe.
I've had a strong desire to alter
a world globe for awhile now
I have several I've picked up 
at garage sales, so I finally just
plunged in and spray painted the
globe with spray gesso and then a 
couple of coats of chalkboard paint.
The base of the globe and the arm I covered 
with some leftover art papers from my

pinterest board I've been collecting

Felt Totoro

I made this felt Totoro plushy for a friend's
 birthday. Its a critter from the anime movie 
My Neighbor Totoro.  I used the pattern I found 
here at Cheek and Stitch with a couple of 
little changes.

Happy 2014

 How did it get to be 2014 already!
I remember when the year 2000
sounded surreal and foreign...
...And here we are 14 years later!
I would like to share my very favorite gift
I received this year from a dear friend!
She created a perpetual calendar for me!

I plan to use it to write things going on
 that day and to do a little art on it
each day too!

I love that it doesn't take up
much space and its something
I will easily be able to do.

Along with this, I thought I'd share some freebie 
Journaling projects you can sign up for:

 Lisa Sonora Beam's 

Roben Marie's 

Chelle Stein's

Happy Creating!

Advent Calendar

This is what I've been working on an advent calender
 for our grandson.   I created different tags for each
package and then downloaded the numbers HERE
to make it more cohesive.

There are a million and one ways to make an advent
calendar from complicated to easy!  Check out my
pinterest board for more advent ideas HERE

Wooden Houses-Little Boxes

We were inspired by 
Nov/Dec 2013 cover issue
 to paint some wooden
houses in my local
 art group Art Menagerie.
 It was such fun!
The song by Malvina Reynolds
Little Boxes kept playing in my
head as I painted them...yeah I 
weird like that LOL

Thankfully ours didn't all look the same :-)

Painted Tom Shoes

I recently stepped outside my comfort 
zone and painted a pair of Tom shoes. 
I was so nervous because the person who 
asked me to paint them didn't have a clear 
design idea so I was worried it wasn't
 what they might have imagined! Even 
worse what if I messed up painting them 
how could I correct it?!?
I sketched it out first and then began to paint it
With the shoes not being a smooth surface also
 made me nervous, but I used a combination
of Fabric markers and fabric paints to
paint the shoes.

I'm relieved and happy to say that the person was 
very happy with he outcome...whew!

Artist Trading Blocks

 It's been awhile since I've done any Artist Trading Blocks
Here are a couple from a recent swap with
 the theme Funky Houses...
 I used a plastic valve handle hubby 
saves and brings home to me for the base.
 The other theme was Words and Numbers
This one I used a faucet handle for the base.
