Bread Art

Someone sent me a great link to a wonderful cause - Bread Art! If you make some art on a piece of "toast" 1$ will be donated to feeding hungry people in America. I have made three so far! Check the last one I made at this link. To see more of mine, just do a search for Lindart. Go to this link to make your own! Just click on Workshops and there you are! Have fun!

Easter Day

I was a bit "maudlin" on Easter Day, missing my DD terribly, remembering all the Easters we had together when she was little. I have all the EDM #s in a box, when I don't know what to draw, I pull out a number and draw what it says. I pulled out #2 - draw a lamp. So I drew one of my MIL's lamps. I love these lamps, they are very old, the shades have gold thread in them, though I couldn't figure out how to make it look like gold. I decide to put in all the surrounding bits too, so on the left is a painting that my Mom did of me and my DD, on the right is a painting from Singapore. There are two photos of DD as a child on the table the lamp is sitting on, and the chair is also one from my MIL. Lots of memories in this little drawing! If you want to see the whole of the painting of me and my DD, look here.

so - although I enjoyed drawing, I'm still a bit maudlin. . .

March Journal Page

I don't seem to be working as much in this journal since I started my moleskine journal, I guess that's to be expected, as I only have so much time! This month's challenge on Michelle Ward's Crusade No. 30 is called "Cat Got Your Tongue?" and is about writing on your journal pages. I have no problem with that! My pages aren't finished until I write all over them. The journaling often has nothing to do with the images on the page, but sometimes it does. I even journal on my drawings and paintings!

Another Moleskine page and some cards. . .

I seem to be averaging about one moleskine page a week, better than none I suppose! A few years ago I drew my DD in this same chair -it was horrible! I think I've improved a bit!

My 2007 drawing of DD

yesterday's drawing of same chair, different person! I see the perspective on the chair is still off -something to work on!

Some new cards for Altered Pages Kit

I have designed some new tag cards for Altered Pages, if you buy the kit from them you get cs, images, paper, ribbon and instructions!

She has all kinds of other cool kits too, check them out!

And my DD's boyfriend has a birthday coming up, so I made him a card. I'm sure he never looks at my site, so I don't think I'll be giving anything away!

Inside is a funny Groucho quote and another stamp of Groucho.
Hopefully he will like it!

That's it for now!
