I've decided that I probably will stop using Typepad when my subscription runs out. I think they will let me post a re-direct, but if not, I will keep my internet address and it will just go there when you type it in. I will probably set up a new... Continue reading

The Study of the Apocalypse. WOW. Actually, its a commentary of the Book of Revelations. The Book of Revelations, otherwise known as The Revelation of Jesus Christ. I never used to worry myself too much about this book, as its... Continue reading

I get this "hurry up" feeling by Wednesday.I have goals to reach before June, and the biggest goal I... Continue reading

Long time since I have checked in. I am not really doing that much interesting things to blog about. I have, however, been doing things......Mikel purchased me an E-reader for my birthday. I did a little research on them, and decided not to spend a lot of money until I... Continue reading

Probably one of my least favorite things to do as a free lance artist. Getting the paperwork done. I cheered myself up by remembering some of the new things I did last year since these shows were, and when I loaded my Sonic CD media copier, I had fun picking... Continue reading

Well, its all sitting here. Every time I have to walk by it, something reaches out and grabs me and clings to me until I promise to come back and make it into something. That's how an artist' mind works. You think they are not paying attention, but we really... Continue reading

Making out my schedule for 2011 as the forms are showing up in my mailbox. I have to wade through some paperwork, but am anxious to start some new work for the new season. I haven't been blogging much because I haven't really been creating. I have been domesticating---and if... Continue reading

A New Year....the same me.......I'd like to think I have grown some. I'd like to think I have grown from, "thanks for noticing" to "Hey, I have something to contribute, want to see/hear?" This year, thank you very much, I would like my cake and get to eat it, too........ Continue reading

Too soon old, too late to be a little girl again. Love little girls. Love their giggling, their skipping, their hand-holding, their pretending, their companionship of which none is higher------but now, in 2010, I am so jealous of what they get to wear!!!! Colors, and more colors, and no rules,... Continue reading

Now that my shows are over for the year, I will be listing various collages on Etsy. If you want prints, just email me, otherwise I will be selling the originals only. I will add a few a day, as time permits. Its best to space them out. I know... Continue reading

I suppose you are wondering what has happened to me? It would be nice if it was true. Actually, between computer problems and just plain a very busy life, I haven't been able to blog. Pictures from my last show in Menomonee Falls. I have two more shows this year.... Continue reading

We finished our last Up North craft show. It was the Eagle River CranberryFest. It was very cold on Saturday with intermittent rains. That show always makes us work for our money. Sunday was a little warmer because the sun was out and the wind was gone, but, so were... Continue reading

I have been incredibly busy. I have tried to prioritize things as much as possible, and unfortunately blogging has been on the lower end of the list. I make most of my income in the summer, and so, I have to give priority to whatever helps fulfill that goal. Now,... Continue reading

My painting is developing into something other than I expected. I started out with this collage-y background that I learned from Paulette Insall's online class. But you will see as I progress these images to you, that they are taking on a life of their own. Perhaps that is what... Continue reading

AND SOME GET RAINED OUT... Packing up at the Phillips show on Sunday. The shower curtains worked for a little while, but the rain just kept coming and coming. Monday it began raining around noon. It really affected sales, and so......disappointed once again. Continue reading

This is probably my favorite, so far. Something about the mood of it. I saw the huge pine trees right away, when I put the pictures down. I had such a nice background and covered it almost completely with the sky and clouds, but I think that green in the... Continue reading

You know when the creative juices are running freely? *argh* I have to go to my "real" job in an hour, and I am really pumped about what happened in the studio yesterday. I finished the farm fabric collages, and it gave me such release, that I have been able... Continue reading

Here is the process: start out with the background and build it. I have an idea, but let it dictate it as I go. I removed some squares that didn't photograph well. I am learning the camera can tell you things you don't see otherwise. I know quilters use it... Continue reading
