Happy fall! I hope everyone is enjoying the autumn! During the October snowstorm, a tree fell on my car. Luckily, I have insurance, so repairing the hood won't be that expensive. It's still such a hassle, though! Anyway, I haven't been making art all the much recently. However, I still make mail art here and there. Here are some postcards I've made recently, as well as a picture of my very messy desk!

I apologize for not having posted in a while! I've still been making art, just not posting it here. So sorry! Here's some new stuff, including mail art, some stamping experiments (a la Traci Bunkers), and an art journal page in which I play with washi tape.

Hi all! I'm sorry I've been neglectful of my blog. Recently, I've been art journaling, making Zentangles, and exchanging mail art. Here is some of my recent work: a postcard that I made for Samie Kira (www.journalgirl.com); the beginning of a scarf I am making for Vasya, the orphan in Ukraine who I sponsor; a mandala I colored in (the mandala is from http://www.doodle-art-alley.com/index.html); and a Zentangle ATC I made for a swap.

Here are pictures of two art journal pages I finished recently, as well as a picture of my first piece of mail art. I made the postcard for a CFE that asked for art that deals with travel and stamps. I used three stamps, three pieces of text in various languages, and a piece of scrapbooking cardstock.

I had a great Sunday! Mostly, I just doodled my heart out. I went to my dad's house to spend time with my parrot, Picasso. I brought with me some pens and markers. Four of these pages are the results of my art-making at my dad's house; one page (the one with the three collage bits) I did at my mom's house.

Last night, I went to a fiber arts guild meeting. It was so much fun! I got to try spinning on a spindle and on a spinning wheel. Here is a picture of the yarn I spun on the wheel. Also, because I couldn't sleep last night, I decided to break out the embroidery kit from Sublime Stiching (http://www.sublimestitching.com/). What fun! I am not done with this tea towel, but I figured I'd post a picture of how my project is coming along.

Here are two spreads I created yesterday. Mostly, I was simply experimenting with the rubber stamps, chalks, and ribbon I bought recently. It was fun to just play and not worry about the outcome. By the way, I did one spread in my small, spiral-bound sketchbook and the other one in my larger, bound sketchbook. I used brush-tipped markers, rubber stamps, ink, buttons, glue, chalks, and ribbon.Good times!

Here are three pictures I made for a charity called Color A Smile. For these pictures, I used a brush-tipped marker and colored pencils. Also, for the Valentine's Day picture, I used a Faber-Castell medium-tipped pen for the swirls. I love to make pictures for Color A Smile! If you want to do so, as well, their link is: http://www.colorasmile.org/.
