Thank you!

Thank you for checking out my blog. I handed out about 200 cards at Art Unraveled so I was hoping to have some curious people.

Lately I haven't been keeping up with my blog. However, both of my daughters are back to school so I find myself with all of this extra time in between doing all of those non-creative things like cleaning toilets, scrubbing floors and even cleaning my oven.

Although, I would rather escape to my studio and play but part of the deal to be a stay home mom was to take care of the household.

The best part of course is being home for my precious girls. I can hardly believe that I "retired" from the work force May 30, 2005.

I have completed my first Christmas Avent Calendar. It will be posted on my blog along with the rest of the calendars that I have left from Art Unraveled.

I would love to hear from you!

Have a great day!

Art Unraveled- Yippeee!!

Four more days until I will be participating in the Art Unraveled on Saturday, August 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

I have been working hard for the last two months preparing for this event. This will be my third year as a vendor. I have nearly 15 calendars to sell! Which only means that I will be hitting the Estate Stores and my favorite Thrift Stores for more unique stuff. Any artist out there that would like to come?

I hope that a few of you can come by. For details check out www.artunraveled.com.
Have a happy Wednesday.

Daytime Fun

Today was a wonderful day. I usually venture out on Friday evenings to a local scrapbook store where I sit and work on a calendar. However, I do have a fun room at home that I call my "studio" which is loaded with all of my fun merchandise from shopping for the last three years.
But it is so nice to get out and look at all of the new products out there.

So today was so great because I left my home at 9:00 a.m. and headed to Scrap Happy Sisters (67th Avenue & Happy Valley Road- Glendale) it is an hour from my home in Gilbert but it was so worth the drive. They have really cool stuff!

I met with my friends Melody and Joanne. We played and played and I arrived back home around 8:00 p.m. The kids were just getting into bed and the house looked pretty good like when I left it this morning.

What a fun and fulfilling Saturday!
