WHAT IS YOUR most favorite images to use under glass? Any suggestions? WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM ALL OF YOU. THANKS for viewing.

ISN'T she CUTE. I am going to make Paige's invitations for graduation so I asked her to draw a bulldog. It's her high school mascot. She is adorable. The girl can draw ANYTHING. I'm so jealous. I think she will have to black pen her so she will show up better when I copy her.

Yo-YO....It's yo-yo time. When Lark came to visit the first of March she bought a kit called Yo-Yo Monkey. She did the actual kit - it was browns, golds and greens. Well I can't make anything BROWN. I need a COLOR. I combed through my stash of fabrics that I have been collecting for about five years. All my favorite colors. So I finally finished the yo-yo part of it - 16 large and 104 baby yo-yo's. YES I SAID 104. Whoooooo I'm tired. Thank goodness for the clover yo-yo maker or I would have hated every step of it. What a great invention. Now onto making the head and tail. OMG this is going to take me a while because I don't know how to sew really. I'm not a good pattern person. I SO WISH I KNEW SOMEONE WHO SEWED. More later when I actually finish it. I don't get much done in a hurry because I have to go to WORK. UGH!!! AND Artiscape is coming up really fast. So I need to prepare kits. LOVE Artiscape. It is a great Art Retreat and put on by the best organizer in the world - Lisa Ohmer of European Papers. I have a sold out class to teach and can't wait to spend one-on-one time with Paige. It will be bittersweet because Mike Meador won't be there. Now I'm gonna cry.
