Art Journal * Diario Artistico

I wanted to show off my Art Journal that I worked on during 2010, but my scanner barely gave me any decent images to show. Nonetheless, since I worked so much on it, I decided to show you.
I already started on my new Art Journal for 2011, but its coming along slowly.

Queria mostrarte mi diario artistico en el que trabaje a traves del 2010, pero mi escanner apenas me da una imagen decente que compartir. Sin embargo, como trabaje tanto en el diario decidi mostrartelo. Ya comenze con el nuevo diario del 2011, pero estoy un poco descuidada con el y viene desarrollandose lentamente.

8 Things I love * 8 Cosas que me gustan

The other day I received a cutter little card in the mail. It had a list of 8 things that Miss Lou loves and wanted to share with me. It also had 3 little goodies for me to keep. I thought to myself:" What a grand idea, to share some love in the world through a little snail mail!"
I want to thank Miss Lou for her little mail joy and invite you to send me your address so I can send you a note card with a little list of 8 things I love, and a little something extra :)
This is my way of saying THANK YOU! to all those that pass around here and leave a little love, it means the world to me to know that there are people who take time to read what I so lovingly post here.
So please send me your address to my email:
Miss Lou's 8 things I Love

El otro dia recibi una adorable cartita en el correo. Contenia una lista de 8 cosas que Miss Lou le gustan y queria compartirlas conmigo. Tambien contenia 3 cositas lindas para mi! Pense :" Pero que gran idea, compartir las cosas que me gustan con el mundo atravez del antiguo correo!" Quiero agradecerle a Miss Lou por su carinito postal e invitarte a enviarme tu direccion postal para yo enviarte a ti mi propia listita de 8 cosas que me gustan, alguito adiccional :)
Esta seria mi forma de decirte GRACIAS! a todos aquellos que me regalan un poquito de su tiempo para pasar por aqui y dejarme un poquito de amor. Significan el mundo para mi, ya que escribo este blog con mucho amor.
Asi que por favor, no dudes en enviarme tu direccion a mi correo electronico:

Etsy: Weigh Anchor

I want to show off this lovely tiny painting I purchased on Etsy from the wonderful Kat! She is a very talented artist, so original and amazingly cute.
There is a story behind every piece!
I'm so pleased with my purchase, its perfection!

The painting measures approximately 1.5 x 4 inches, and is painted with acrylic paints. This picture does not do it justice!

How about you? Bought anything recently that you want to brag about?

Owl of Wisdom?

The other night I kept tossing around in bed. I had to accept it, I needed to make something or I would be doomed to toss and turn every night for weeks! I got out my materials and waited. And waited. Finally my mind was beaten and I started to think about the New Year's goals I had yet to write (I know its already February!). I wanted more wisdom in my wise, to make the better choices. They say wisdom comes with gray hairs, but I'm not that patient!
A little owl fluttered in my brain. They are supposed to be wise, Athena turned into an owl to visit people in need of direction. The little fuzzy owl fluttered and fluttered until I grabbed it.
Owl of Wisdom?
I caught it with some acrylics, watercolors and Sharpie pen in some craft paper. I'm thinking of mounting it on a wood plaque.

I also got some awesome mail today, a bag of home made cookies! Thank you so much Sally! They were great!
