by land, by air, by sea...FINALLY!

2 hours to Midway airport...
4 hours to LAX...

Tomorrow...
the big boat.

FINALLY!

We're ready...I think...
and so very excited!

And we're happy to be leaving cold...ugly...rainy Illinois.
maybe it will be sunny & WARM when we return...
but then again...
probably NOT!

Here's the cruise logo that tim designed...
It's grungy & AWESOME...
Just what I LOVE!


Now...Some art...

If you're a frequent blog visitor...you'll remember last month Robin sent me an adorable vintage coke bottle
filled with studio 490 grunge flowers...

Well...now it's fall & she's done it again...
Here's some inspiration from Robin...

even the back is cute!

Here's the front...

Thanks Robin for sharing this cool idea...
hmmm...
I wonder what she's got planned for the winter arrangement?

THANKS SOOOOOOOO MUCH for the emails & well wishes for the cruise...
YOU GUYS are the best!

We'll be back next Monday...
Until then...
take care &
MAKE ART!
