Inspiration and a big honker

I have been pretty down in the dumps of late...Xmas is looming and it will be my first one away from my family. I went to the doc. today for results from a CT I had on seems that my lack of smellability and tasteability (yeah I know I made those words up) is because I have a severe chronic case of sinisitis...but the great news is that it can be fixed yay!!!
Ooooh I am gonna put on some weight taste testing lol

Anyway whilst in my low mood I set to create my very first fabric art doll
(inspired by the very talented Dot )

in the mail today: a copy of the Canadian mini mag. ATC Quarterly....and I am published in it! woohoo it was quite exciting. I also recieved a great little ATC from the talented Elizabeth Harms :)

It's nearly Xmas!!!!

woah what a shocker!!! I have been sooooo busy it is crazy. I have been doing ATC, and alot of altered work...books! I really feel I am getting better with them but they are still a bit scary.
The dog I found is long gone...I took him to the vet to get him scanned for a microchip and he did have one, so I located the owner and returned was really sad and reminded me of how much I miss my animal friends.
My Mum in-law saw how upset I was and told me to get myself a little dog, so I did, I got Odie...he is a Datschaund x mini fox terrier. Of course MIL's husband hates him....more power to me! lol

I went to the Sydney paper festival.....and spent buckets of money (nearly $300)....but got lots of goodies, I also got to meet some amazingly talented ladies and traded out a few ATC...the weather sucked though :)

things to make when ya bored

Today I went to visit Jess and made these four ATC whilst I was there.
They turned out really well....but once again the scan does them no justice, the colours are so much more vibrant in hand and the embossing powders I used on the torsos are the two toned product (moon glow)....very nice and lots of shimmer!

not an ATC

I was challenged by a friend when I was in Perth to make a cabinet card, it has been packed away with all my photos until I came across it last night...
as always this daft scanner makes the images a little dark but ya can sort of make out the stamping in the background....which is actually the foreground.
I had to also use PSP8 to alter the photo as the original image has a huge bright orange rust stain on it.

memories of you

today I made a card with my Nan in mind, I think about her alot and really do miss her, I think she would have loved my boys, I wish she had met them before she passed away.....more than a decade now...weird doesn't seem that long ago.

*the photo doesn't do it justice, the colours and image are so much more crisp and clear in hand...ahhh well

a few more samples of my work

oh lovely rust!!!

I love playing with rust!....I think most of the people who trade ATC with me most likely know that though hehe
