I'm not going to blog anymore...

At least not on this blog! Ha! You thought I was quitting forever, didn't you? Nope, you'll not get away from me and my crazy art and random thoughts that easily! From now on, or until I decide to change my mind again, I'm going to blog exclusively at My Meandering Musings. Keeping up two blogs is just too much. I don't know why, but it seems like a lot of work. But I promise that I'll keep posting pics of the things I make over on my other blog. So, come on over!

Bunny ATCs

Bunny ATC for Faerie Zine Swap




Bunny ATC for Faerie Zine Swap

I made these ATCs for a swap on Flickr. I recently bought some vintage playing cards on eBay that have pictures of some children heirs to some throne or other in Europe and I decided to use them for the swap. These fun little ATCs just crack me up.

The Envelope Please...

Wow! I can't believe I had 175 comments on my One World One Heart Giveaway post! I used a random number generator online to pick the names and here are the winners:

1. For the "sweet" magnets...Lavender Dreamer!

2. For the playing card tags...Crystal!

3. And for the mystery prize...Latharia!

I've emailed all of these lovely people, so I hope I'll be hearing from them soon.

That was fun! I hope you'll stop by my blogs again for more giveaways!

More Art Journal Pages











Here are some art journal pages that I've done this last month. Some were inspired by writing I did prompted by The Awe-Manac and others were inspired by other things in my life right now.


In other art news, I'm gearing up for Artfest in April. I just completed my 32 ATCs for a book one of the other Artfesters is making. This is the first time I've made this many ATCs just for one project. I don't think I've made more than 6 before for swaps, so this was a lot of work.
I'm also making mermaid magnets for trading. I actually made 32 magnets last weekend. And I'm not tired of making them yet!

One World One Heart Giveaway


Photo


Why is it so much fun, so fulfilling, to give things away? I don't know, but here I am, giving some things away. Below are two sets of little things I've made that I'm giving away for the One World-One Heart Giveaway. In order to win, you must leave a comment on this post. The winners will be chosen randomly on February 12, 2009.

If you click on the badge above, you can also see all of the other bloggers who are involved in the giveaway. I hope you'll take some time to check out their blog giveaways.


These are some sweet little marble magnets. Mmm, I could lick that cupcake...but I won't.

These lovely glittered tags can be used as book marks or gift tags or anything else you can think of!

I will be adding things to the giveaway as we get closer to February 12, so there will definately be more than two winners.

Oh, and those people who I owe things to for an earlier giveaway, I have them done! I'll mail them to one person and probably show up unannounced at another's house. I hope you like what I've made for you!

So, leave a comment and win!

Art Journal 2009

I know you've all been dying to see some more art, so here are a few art journal pages I've done recently. Right now the art journal and other "artsy" stuff occupy TSH's side of the bed. What will I do when he gets back?


Island of Yesterday Art Journal PageI think the above journal proves once and all that I should stick to glueing things to paper rather than drawing. But it was fun, nonetheless. The poem can be found in a slightly more legible form on My Meandering Musings.

Circle Questions and There's Nothing I...Pages


I enjoyed practicing my little squiggly lines on the above page. I haven't played with squiggly lines in years. I forgot how good I was at them. Ahhhh, if I could just have a career based on squiggly lines, I would be set!

I'm Going to Artfest!

I'm so excited!

video

Yep, I just did the happy dance because I'm so excited to go to Artfest in April! I've never done anything like this before, but I'm glad I'm doing it. I even got all of the classes I wanted, including one taught by the author of Poemcrazy, my current favorite book about writing poetry. Oh, I must go get started on making things to trade with other Artfesters. Must fly!
