I can't remember who makes this image (would love for someone to remind me) but it is a favorite. The trim is from Rock Candy and began as white. I used acrylic paint in a coral shade called passion punch as well as brown acrylic to color the trim and then scuffed it up a bit with fine sandpaper. A piece of scrap paper was sewn onto brown cardstock and the paint was stenciled and scraped on the card. The image was stamped with StazOn in saddle brown and the dress was colored with watered-down acrylic paint.
Hope everyone is staying warm. Some of the schools in our area closed due to the temperatures yesterday and that doesn't happen often. Later...

Off and running onto another subject: I've signed up for an online digital art class and this is one of the photos I took for that class. I love trees and really like the contrast of the afternoon sky with all the trees. Living here in the middle of Tennessee, there aren't many opportunities for classes that interest me so this online opportunity is exciting. But I do have to share an event that is happening right here in Tennessee in September 2009. Four wonderfully talented ladies have come together to bring Mixed Media Melange on Sept 10th - 13th, 2009 to Tennessee. The event is near Memphis and registration begins on January 15. Please jump over to the blogs of Roxi and Michelle for more information. Hey, it's something to live for!

After:So...that's about it for yesterday. Today is church and stamp club so there isn't any time for organizing. I'll be back at it in a day or two with another goal. Later...

It doesn't look like much yet, does it? Note the bottom bins here are the produce drawers from our fridge that died a couple of months ago. I knew they'd come in handy someday! They will hold my unfinished projects.
Today's goals: #1 Clean out this cabinet:Anyone remember "My Buddy"? And there is the 'sick' Care Bear my son got when he was 13 months old...he's almost 25 now. These and everything else will get a new storage home and this cabinet will hold fabric, batting and associated sewing stuff.
Goal #2: I have some track shelving stored in the attic from our previous home. It will come out of storage and be mounted in the furnace room. Wish me luck!
