Random thoughts and a broken computer:
So my computer got hit by lightening and pretty much died. I am sure you can all relate to that time when your computer gets to a point where you are lying awake at night thinking about how much pleasure you would get if you could open a second story window and chunk it as far as you could throw it. That is where I was and then it just died completely. So I am in a mess. I had a lot of files saved, but not all. My Etsy shop has been completely ignored and I have not posted anything yet about how I actually came to have an Etsy shop. I am sure I will get there. I had also intended to kind of post about things I was learning as I go along - kind of a blind leading the blind thing. I have a lot going on. I was hoping to add some new things to the shop - like paper art and mixed media elements for others to add to their projects. I have been making some of the above and am loving them. The ones in the picture include pieces of a vintage quilt that I got at the coolest antique place in Texas. That is an entire story in itself. I will have to find pictures because words cannot describe it. Sadly, my friend that I visited there sold her lake house, so I may never go again. But anyway, I got a cool old quilt that was thread bare in spots so using it for other things.
Lots going on which I will post pics later. I had a piece on the Tattered Angels blog that I had done for their CHA booth this summer. I sent a piece that I loved to New York to help raise money for an organization called Love 146. Check out their web-site. And I am working on two things right now for a blog hop between Authentique Paper (which I have fallen in love with) and Canvas Corp, Tattered Angels and 7 Gypsies. I will post pics later. I have to get this new computer figured out and get new photo software as I have gone from PC to MAC.
In closing I want to posted a few pictures from another artist (above) as I have absolutely fallen in love with her work. I think her pages are stunning. She also does a lot of art journaling. She uses the name Mumkaa on Flickr and pinterest. Go check out her stuff. I just think it is amazing.
Have a great day. One day soon I will talk about my shop.
