These are a set of atc's I made for a swap! The theme is that a Party Hat and Beads were to be included! There are microbeads on the party hat and beads stitched at the base! I sewed the paper portion of the card onto some uphostery fabric! :0)

BOO! For everyone who knows me and knows my love for fairies, this is our pumpkin for home! Wheee! She doesn't have wings, but this little sprite would have been sort of lost with them(too solid of a mass to tell what she was), so her siloutte will have to do! I cannot believe I did not break her arm!!! This pumpkin has very thick meat and that was a lifesaver! I drew this design out and I think she is quiet the Halloween fun!

These are two pages for a friend of mine's deco( a deco is a small handmade booklet passed from artist to artist to add a page or two of the owners desired theme---usually smaller than 4x6). It was very fun to art in her booklet filled with sweet children, and the first page is mainly paper with stamping, oil pastels and silk flowers and the second is fabric with background stamping, ribbons, charm and flower applique.

Hi again! We are off to a Halloween party tonight and we were required on the invite to bring a carved pumpkin for admittance! ohhhhhh the scary fun! So here is our pumpkin! Earl and I did this one...I am sure Amber will want to carve the one for home! BOO!

This is another vintage cabinet card that I am working on for a one for one swap on a yahoo group! I have painted and highlighted the background with acrylic paints, after sanding lightly everything but the image. Then I overstamped with lumieres green the vines and leaves, and black versifine all the letters and words and swirls for the background until I was happy with it! I added in the other images of flowers and butterfly and words. This cabinet card was done in Neenah WI......here in my home state! She lived here at one time....I find that a wonderful thing!! I still plan to add a few embellishments and a wire hanger maybe!!!!! I will see! :0)

By the way.......here she is all grown up! :0) I still see that mischievous little girl in there! Ohhhhhh yes I do!
Earl and I are taking out an ad in the senior year book of Amber's high school! Graduating senior's parents are allowed to do this! I took one of our all time favorite pictures of Amber....she is 2 1/2 years old here and I
turned her into the little fairy princess that she is and I put the world in her hands! Our hope is for her to follow the quote we included! Ohhhhh my baby is grown!

Beautiful FALL COLORS are beginning! And the fishermen are out catching trout too! Enjoy!

Ok, this is not ART per say, but a what a fun day I had! After work, I went and got some fall color pictures! It is just starting to be pretty here! See the picture? :0)
AND, I live near Lake Michigan, and during certain times, the brown trout head upstream and the fishermen have a ball! The trout come into an inlet here and the guys and kids go there and fish/catch and release and some keep them for eating! They are amazing to see! It is fun just watching them! That is the WI girl in me I guess! Earl and I watched for a while! I took a couple of pictures! It was neat! That was my fun excitement for the day! Just had to share!
