Yellow and Blue Love

Two of my fav colors in one of my fav combinations!
Check out this groovy hat I found at an estate sale!
And this cute earring holder I found at the thrift store!

My only enamel bracelet, one of my mom's.

It's just so pretty and happy!

Sniffles, Sneezes and lots of Kleenix!

That's been my week so far, sniffles, sneezes and lots of kleenix!
I think I have Sabrina's cold, or maybe some sort of allergies.
It is so hard to tell, because the symptoms are so similar.
It would make sense that it is a cold, since she was sick.
But, it feels more like allergies to me.
The funny thing is, I think I might be allergic to the wool felt I have been
working with on some projects.
But I really don't know for sure. Anyway, I have been getting better,
and I hope to go out to see the movie "Alice in Wonderland" tomorrow!
I have gotten some artwork done, and took pix of fun things around the house.
Like the toy VW bug that Sabrina got for her bday.
Isn't it adorable!
Below is a bulletin board I made by recycling foam alphabet letters of Sabrina's.
Then I used that as a place to showcase some of her art.

I love this basket of yarn, so colorful!

And, the little butterflies are $1 wind up toys from Micheals!
I couldn't resist them.

They are playing a game of "Mary Poppins" by the way.
Bye for now!

I'm back!

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, but I have been very busy trying to get

some new projects done and the kid has been sick all last week

with a bad cold.

She's not usually sick for long, so I wasn't used to having to keep her out of school.

She seem to be getting better though,

so hopefully she'll be back to school on Monday.

Recently got my first package ever from Thailand,

and, my first ever Blythe doll! Well, she's not really a Blythe.

She's a Basaak which is a fake, but she's still pretty cute,

and a much better price.

I can get two of these for the price of one low end Blythe!

I'm not against spending that kind of money if you have it,

but I definitely don't have it!

Anyhoo, here she is! I think I'm going to name her Chelsea.

This is the outfit she came with, above.
But then I changed her into an outfit borrowed from my Moxie dolls.
I love her aqua hair!

I also changed Moxie girl, Avery into a spring rain outfit,

complete with umbrella!

Avery, meet Chelsea! Time to make new friends!
Bye for now!

Sketches of the Week

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
