I'm working in Fabric right now. I have made a few new Fru Fru people and some houses. I am getting all kinds of ideas for my Fru Fru people, even my husband likes to help with their names and stories. I hope you had a good Tuesday. Good evening.

One of my latest little collage pieces. I tried a new crackle technique using hide glue as recommended in Acrylic Revolution by Nancy Reyner. I really liked the outcomes (on the sides). That hide glue stinks though. Shew! (see more by clicking on pic which will take you to flickr)
I need a little black dress too. I need it for another American Heart Gala-this one is in Midland and Odessa Texas on March 28th and it is a little more formal than the one a few weekends ago here. So, I will have to take some time today to find something. It has to match the jewelery designed by Lisa over at Majestic Designs that I will be modeling for her that night. It is so pretty and glitzy. I might need security to follow me around lest someone snatch it from me. Ha!
Whatever huh? Anyway, sorry I have not gotten to visit everyone lately but I'm making a point to visit blogs tonight. Hope you have an amazing Tuesday. HUGS!

It has been the most wonderful (much needed) little weekend getaway. I think Ms. Heather needed this little escape as much as we did....she has not stopped smiling since we left home. She had so much fun shopping downtown. She found herself a cute little t-shirt (pink of course) and a blingy set of earrings, and a blingy pink ring. Then we took her to a little cemetary in town that had many old, old grave stones. She took lots of pics. She was clearly enjoying herself so much.
This is Craig enjoying the living room at the Magnolia House.
Our room. Yawn!.....Can't wait to snuggle up in this comfy bed.

POLAROIDS-I know.....it's old news.....but since I bought the vintage pink Polaroid off Etsy (can't wait until it gets here), it has become quite the issue with me. Polaroid is no longer making the instant film. They are going digital and all modern and stuff. Yay for them....but, raise your hand if you think it should be about them?! What about us? What about the few weird and nerdy people left in the world that love Polaroids? How will I go on? Hand on my head.....eyes looking upwards.......(Curtains close) heehee
So this post is not 10 pages long-I will just post some links for you in case you are interested in Polaroids.
- Save The Polaroid
- Save Polaroid (a Flickr photo group...lots of fun Polaroid shots here)
- Poladroid: Oh this was so much fun and will be for a long time....I downloaded this software so I can make any photo appear to be a Polaroid.....but it also gives you the whole experience-like the Polaroid sound and lets you "shake" the photo to help it develop....this is a photo that I FAUX Polaroided. I must warn you though.....the people on the Flickr photo group say mean and ugly things about people who post fake Polaroid shots on their group. Just FYI!

Did you spring forward? Oh the things we could have created in that one hour.
I drew this little lady yesterdays with pens/prisma pencils and added the water soluable oil pastels around the background and just rubbed them in. I added the question mark with a paint marker and digitally added the words on picnik.com. I love quotes like this. I discovered this quote at a car wash place on a sign. Had to use it!
We got to talk to Cody for a long time yesterday. He is a little entrepreneur. Not only is he doing his job in AF....he has been building fences part time for extra money. Anyway, he was in good spirits and it was just so nice and uplifiting to hear from him.
I finished up a lot more clay heart pins and bird pins and I need to package them for the Funky Finds in April. I feel like doing some fabric art or maybe drawing some more today. I'm burned out on clay for the moment. Hope everyone is well and I hope spring is knocking on your door. We all need to go outside and play!

It was such a wonderful read by Rice Freeman-Zachery on page 38 with lots of yummy pictures. I had no idea that Danita lived in Ciudad,Juarez.
Without spoiling the article, I have to say the one part that just touched my soul was this statement by Danita, "At the beginning, trying to find my own style, I made a lot of mistakes. Unconsciously I tried to be someone I wasn't and was going in many directions like a ship with no rudder......." Hmmm, could that be me? YES! Life is a journey, no?
Wow! I so long to find my style. What is my style? Do I have one? How would you describe me? Just curious what others think that style is. Not fishing for complements, just honest feedback. Hugs to all my bloggies!
Congratulations Danita! It was an awesome article and I am proud for you! You are something special to me!
