Feeling Blessed…..

I love to greet each day on my porch..
coffee in hand…listening to the feathered
ones chittering amongst themselves as they
prepare for a new day. I sit…wrapped
in a blanket against the chill…
feeling blessed…

Searching For Mr. Right

i got a little paint under my nails tonight…
i'll have to say i'm learning it's not so easy
to collage in a planner. i guess i need to
do a tip in with my collage and just do
the glue/sticker thingy on the pages.

The Living Studio - Yes Please!

Do you have a portable studio?
Jeanne Oliver is giving one away to celebrate the launch

I've never had the privilege of attending an art
retreat. I can't even imagine how wonderful it
would be to spend time learning and talking 
with so many kindred spirits.

For those of us who can't make it to her retreats
she will be hosting a free online series featuring
videos of a variety of artists showcasing their 
techniques…Awesome Sauce!

Head on over to Jeanne Oliver Designs to read
all about this deliciousness and leave a comment for 
a chance to win your own portable studio!

Mr. Owl

Hoooooo doesn't love kids art?
One of my grans gifted me with Mr. Owl. 
She and her sister were born on the same
day…two years apart. For their birthday
this year I made them both an art journal
with prompts and pictures to color…a 
whole lot of silliness went in to those
journals. I also gave them scissors, glue
sticks and magazines so they could make
pictures from bits and bobs. One of the 
printouts in the book showed how to
draw an owl….I think she did a great
job and hope she continues to keep
art journals.

A Little Bovine Love…..

Simple pleasures….
a silly cow creamer found
at the junk store filled with
the last of my flowers makes
me a happy camper.

What are some of your
simple pleasures?

Wolfgang Laib Beeswax Room

Can you imagine meditating in a small room.. illuminated
 with a single light bulb... the walls and ceiling covered
 in beeswax? 

The aroma and energy of this room must
be simply amazing. It's an installation at
the Phillips Collection in Washington DC
by German artist Wolfgang Laib. 

Oh how I'd love to have one of my own!

Spend Money on Jody Day

Thought I'd jump on here and share some of my finds from my
 Spend Money on Jody Day.

I found this Orange Circle Studio password logbook at 
Target. I'm planning to use it as an art journal. I love the
images on the dividers:

I did a walk about in Tuesday Morning and scored these:

And to the Dollar Tree for some Christmas themed tapes:

Wooo Hooo….I feel like I've won the lottery!

Ooooh…I'ma have so much fun!
