New Bag!

For once I was able to detach myself from my easel, temporarily of course, and I took out my basic but wonderful sewing machine!
Recently I learned how to print pics of my art on muslin and it's just perfect!
So this morning I attached one of them to this canvas bag, and I'm really happy with the results, please let me know what you think:

Mail from Italia !!!

Check it out! I ordered a hand-made, buttery-soft journal from Linda aka Tortagialla. just last week and it made to Texas yesterday. 
I absolutely love it ♥ , at the moment it's too pretty and new to distress with my messy art. LOL
Ms. Linda is soo sweet to have included a beautiful coordinated bookmark, which I adore since I never have enough bookmarks. THANK you Linda for such pleasant surprise! And for sending so quickly.

Hi there! I've been having fun making this doll. I used paper clay, and fabric. The challenge was to attach the arms and legs, solved with some wire : )
Thanks for your comments and for visiting ♥
Note the birdy in her "nest". I made the bird with a little leftover, and it fit perfectly in her unruly hair! still working on her blouse.

My old cat just had to be in the picture, very unusual for her.

Sunshine - Again

Last weekend over mother's day I was kinda depressed. I know rain is good, and glorious. But I can't help feeling cheated when weekends are cloudy. All I need is the sun to feel optimistic and energetic. This morning we went to the flea market and I found a couple of Ladies' Almanacs from 1938 and 1939! and finally found a set of Mexican lottery game (more on this later).

When we returned home the sun started to shine and I was happy, again. I feel obligated to enjoy it, lol, so I took my journal and a few art supplies to my back yard sanctuary. Did not feel much like writing, so i wanted to draw, just doodle my curly Q's, then a  face over that, very unusual for "neat-freak" me, and what fun to see the results!

I so love Spring 2010!
We had a harsh winter, luckily it was also very wet. Now, here in south Texas, is sooo very green and gorgeous, the skies are blue and there is a pleasant breeze. But don't be jealous, the heat will be here too soon and it will be unbearable to be outside, along with "vampire" mosquitoes not too far behind. That's why I've been trying to take advantage of every possible free moment to enjoy my backyard. This morning while my family slept I was in paradise, here is the proof:

I was so very happy, journaling, drinking coffee, and listening to my mp3 player. **Sigh **

Thanks for visiting my garden : )
