Thank you for your prayers

Hello friends of my blog...I just wanted to post a note of thanks and appreciation for all the thoughtful prayers and good intentions sent out to my Mom and family.  As some of you know my Mom had a stroke Wednesday and is somewhat better but still is in the hospital and I am sure rehab after this.  It has been a trying time and I feel blessed to have you all cheering her on.  I really don't know that she will fully recover from this one  but I have hope from your kindness and prayers sent our way...thanks again.

Dotee Doll

A friend of mine in an art  yahoo group that I am is are exchanging a St. Paddy's Day dotee doll with me. They are much like ATC trading cards they should not be sold but only here is the one I made for JudyD.  I hope you like her...

TN Snow

Morning!  I hope everyone is thawing out and I am certainly wishing we have seen the last of snow for awhile, how about you?  I meant to post the other day when we got over 8" of snow with drifts of 11, yikes!  For Chattanooga that is not the norm well I am sure this has been an abnormal winter for lots of people.  So here are some of the beautiful pictures I took during our snowfall...

Fabric art journal page for Judy

Well I am catching up a little and maybe even a week ahead of time. Imagine that, finally!  I am in a monthly Art jourmal page exchange and each month is just what that month means to us.  This  is my page for February and I did add crystals but you really cannot see them that well.  I love the look of pink and brown together so I just added lace, trim, crystals, a few words and of course chocolate...Judy I hope you like it..

ATC February

Morning!  I finished my February ATCs for the Fiberantics group that I am in.  Our theme this month was "transparency"  which I was trying to think of something different for this month with keeping it simple.  Because as you all know I can go over the edge and just keep adding and adding...since my word for this year is "simplify"  this is what I came up with...not that it was hard just time consuming but I am satisfied with the results.  Now I have one more thing to complete which is my February journal page and I can finish my grandson's quilt....
Old  Fashion Screen Door:

What I did was use gesso on each card then ink stamped the background and used a  flower stamp in achieval black so there was something to see other than color.  I cut and glued the no-seum screen down and used thin pieces of wood cut to size  and ink glazed to make the old fashion frame...added the bead for a door knob and called it done....I hope you enjoy taking a peek and I thank you!

Mixed Media January Journal page

First let me wish everyone a very Happy Valentines Day and I really hope you get to enjoy the day with your loved ones! It has been a very busy month so far  between doctors and taking my m-i-l to the er for falls that could have been prevented if she would use her walker, I am already exhausted. That being said I will be going to my Modern guild this morning and that is always a pleasure to spend time with our group here in Chattanooga.  I am still missing my DF Linda it is like everywhere I go she should be there but hopefully I will see her in April and we will get a chance to catch up.

Anyway I am in a mixed media group and the theme this year is what each month means to me:  so here is my month of January...take care and have fun.....

I used gesso, watercolor;  glitter; white marker; black archival ink and washi tape...I hope the lady that receives it really enjoys it.  It was allot of fun to do.

January ATC

Good Monday morning.  Just wanted to post a pic of my first ATC's for this year for the FiberAntics group.  Our theme was "3 words of advice"  so I chose "Believe in Yourself"   Good way to start the year don't you think?  Have a great week...
