Amber had the opportunity to attend a Q and A with Chelsea Clinton at UW Milwaukee today! Here are some photos she got of her! Amber felt that Chelsea was soft spoken, articulate and comfortable and at ease! No matter what your policital view, I think it is wonderful that a young lady like Chelsea can be out in the public, speaking well, and that young ladies like my daughter have the opportunity to view it all. :0)

The next GORGEOUS Puzzle arrived for the RR I am in!
This one has a theme of Eggs, birds and nests! The puzzles are 5x7 total, so the pieces are small but fun! We are to do 2 pieces not connected to eachother! The owner did the two on the right, top and lower.....and I did the two on the left, top and lower corner! I added some "red" paint as the owner did that on her pieces and it was a nice way to connect the styles! Very fun! These are going to come home all arted and tttttterrific I think! Hugs,Patti

I got some new funky stamps with these totally fun grunge girls and I used one of them to make my recent atcs for a swap of fairies and flowers! They are such fun and from STAMPOTIQUE.

Design by Daniel the name to see these stamps!

I love the stamps! I got a couple of these fun girls! :0) And the BLA BLA background stamp too! (And the spider, I could not resist, but did not use it on this atc.) :0)

Enjoy! Hugs,Patti

I am in a puzzle round robin with several gals! We put the main color down on the 5x7 puzzle(everyone has the same puzzle as the hostess sent them us all) and art 2 pieces (not connecting) and then the puzzle goes around and each player does 2 pieces! I will share with you the puzzles as I get them so you can see what they will look like as each comes and has more and more pieces done in each person's color and theme! Fun and these are smallish pieces and make for quick arting! :0) FUN! My theme is NUMBERS and WINGS!

My friend Nancy flew into Milwaukee on her way to Tuscan for a jewlery show and fun time with some other artsy friends.......and during her layover, I picked her up and we had a visit! She met Earl ,saw my house,and we drove around a bit, she saw Lake Michigan and we had lunch and now she is off on her next flight! WHAT FUN! I am so glad to have seen her! That was perfect and I am so glad that it worked out for us to spend some time together! HURRAY!
