TMTA- Cool Fruit

This is my ATC for Think Monday - Think ATC's theme for this week which is cool fruit. The girl is a magazine picture that was glued onto a playing card. Then I dry brushed gesso lightly over the picture. Then I drew with a permanent pen and water colored over her. She has a cherry necklace drawn on and a stamped, embossed and watercolored blackberry that was cut out and put into her hand. You might think that she would be holding a phone but it's a real blackberry!

Thinking about love - new 4x4 and altered book pages

This is for a friend's altered book in my altered book club. Her theme for her book is anything goes so I was in the mood to do Something with hearts. The hearts were cut out with my Cricut with the Paper Lace cartridge.

This is a 4x4 that I did for a Valentine swap for my online art group. As you can tell, the book inspired this 4x4.

My Journal - prompt 3

This is my journal. I am doing some prompts that my friend Autumn has for our art group to do in our journals.
This was prompt # 3 to write about who you are.

This page shows the pocket that holds the dress form that says, "i am".

Here is Autumn's journaling on the same prompt:

This is what the dress form says on the other side.

Handmade christmas gifties

This is the back of a quilt that my friend Janet gave me for a Christmas gift.
She always puts antique linens on the back of her quilts for her name tags.

I just had to show you her underwear! Isn't that just too cute?

Polly (who is 90 years young and still quilting!), Lynn, me, Thea and Ellen with our quilt gifts from Janet.

Lynn, Polly, me, Thea and Janet.

The neck pancho is from Ellen. It keeps your neck warm when you have coats that don't quit meet and expose your neck area to the cold.
I am a very lucky girl to have such crafty friends. These are handmade gifts from some of my quilting friends. I don't quilt much anymore so I made them these angel earrings and a handmade Christmas ornament which I forgot to get a picture of.

This is a tea cozy made by Ellen too and this is a table runner that Polly made.

There were lots of other little gifties and a good meal at Ellen's house with a dish that each of us brought. It was a wonderful friends day!

Sheet Music Dancer - Think Monday Think ATC

After seeing lots of snow and ice around here, I like this happy and Springy little sheet music dancer ATC that I did for Think Monday, Think ATC whose theme this week is sheet music.

Hot pink jewelery

These are two pieces of jewelery that I have made for some friends.

This braclet on the white background was for my friend Claudia. She won the monthly lottery that we do in our local altered book club. Her theme was birds. So I made this pink braclet with a bird for her.
Then I got the bright idea to do the braclet on the black background for Shelly Rae who won the monthly lottery in our online art group. She loves hot pink. After I made the braclet for her, I decided that she needed some earrings to go with it. I hope you enjoy it, Shelly Rae. I think it will be perfect for next month and for a girl that loves hot pink.

Snow again

We had snow again today. This is how it looked out of my front door today.
Some of upstate South Carolina had as much as a foot of snow but we just had about 5 inches of snow. The bad part is that now it is sleeting and should be sleeting all night which will make all of this a sheet of ice. We will be staying home tomorrow because of the icy weather.
