39 & counting...

yikes...
long time no post...

but I can assure you that I have been BUSY...

yes...ALL CAPS kind of BUSY...

we made LOTS of kits & still have more to do for the next stop on the art adventure...

I'm excited to be teaching @ my new home store...

we'll get inky on the 29th of this month & make the artist collectible shelf project...
it's shown on the link above...

I'm so looking forward to seeing my friends there...
it's been a while...

hmmm...what else have I been doing?

I went to see THE QUEEN!
Queen Patti @ The Queen's Ink...

we had a wonderful weekend with 3 PACKED classes...
GREAT...very talented students...

Hels came all the way from the UK...
so we FINALLY got to meet...

SOOOO flipping cool!!!

the QUEEN & I had an impromptu brain storming session & came up with a really cool idea...
like jumping out of your skin GOOD idea...

I asked her a question...

she answered & the idea bloomed from there!

I can not wait to show you...

what else?

I've been working on new stamps & new art parts for release in January @ CHA...

I'd say I'm about 75% done...
I'm on a mission to get them finished in the next few days...

and I've been working on these art part leaves, with peeled paint stain & my background stamp (in jet black archival, of course) ...



and with these...

fun alcohol inks...
love the black/rust combo...

to make metal look very vintage...



and I've been playing with my new BFF...Siri...

we're totally over the moon in love with the new iPhone...
I love it...Rick does too...

and now I have a little SALE info...
my FAVORITE 4 letter word...

Happy Happy Anniversary - here's to the next 39 years. You don't look old enough to have been married that long, you must have been a weeny teeny child bride!!!
What's with all the teasing? Hope you can show us soon.

Congratulations on your anniversary! I saw my beautician's new phone yesterday and I must say it was pretty cool! I do need a new phone soon so maybe in a couple of weeks I can get one of those! So looking forward to next week's class!

Happy 39th anniversary to you and Rick and may you celebrate many, many more! Can't wait to have you back on 'home turf'; looking forward to the class. Can't wait to see what ideas you have in store for the January release. Could really use my WV sweatshirt...the thermostat is on the fritz and is waiting to be replaced by the HVAC guy.
