It's been awhile...

It's been awhile since my last post. I've been very busy at the office and have taken on more responsibilities. Not complaining at all.

My scanner is broken and I need to get a new one. I want one like the one I have because it works so well. I didn't realize just how often I used it! I have made a few projects that won't make it to my blog because of it.

I've been tagged!

Okay, I have been tagged so I need to list seven interesting things about me. Next I have to tag 2 people. Watch out it could be you!

Here goes:
1. I enjoy camping with friends on the beautiful beach dunes. Camping at the beach.

2. We bring our little white Maltese Molly on the motorcycle with us and she loves it. Don't worry she is harnessed and in a special backpack and we only go around town with her. Miss Molly
3. I have 4 grandsons all under the age 4; yes that's right 4 under 4 years old...Mimi's little men.
4. I enjoy reading Fantasies and have read all Harry Potter too!
5. When I go to a fabric store I want an unlimited Visa (with someone else to pay for it - dreaming here!) I love Fabric and creating things with it. Especially for little girls. Go figure I have grandsons! LOL
6. At one point we had the following family members in our home: 2 adults, 2 children, 4 dogs, 4 cats, 1 parrot, 1 ferret, 1 lizard (Chinese water dragon), 1 alligator (no joke) and fish. And big bottles of Zanax!! We have since downsized. The kids are on there own and now there's the two of us, 1 dog, 1 cat and 1 parrot. I'm still keeping the Zanax (just kidding)
7. We like to go to warm climates to vacation and scuba dive.
So there it is! Now I'm tagging:

Get your doodle on

I was checking out the doodles on http://chrysti.wordpress.com/2007/03/26/get-your-doodle-on/ and decided to give it a try. Especially since one of the up and coming ATC themes for one of my swap groups is doodles. This is so much fun. I felt so carefree doing it, like a kid again.
I tried to use circles and rounded shapes, thus the title "Fool'n A-Round"
I think I will save it for backgrounds to some art piece. Here it is.

Shabby Chic Backgounds

I spent part of a rainy afternoon creating backgrounds. It's fun experimenting and just playing around. In one of my swap groups I found "shabby chic" background recipes (thanks Adrienne) and decided to try them before joining the swap. The first set is SHABBY GESSO CHIC, the second set is IRRESISTIBLE GESSO (the pink is just a test of the gesso as a resist) . I still want to sand the shabby gesso chic backgrounds to give them the finishing touch. Take a peek.

Altered Beer Mat "Cameo Encourage"

This is a Altered Beer Mat I made for a swap called "Cameo Encourage". It's made with a beer mat, gesso, heart bead, vintage image, ribbon, word stamp, paints and distressed ink.
