Long time -no post

WOW, its been a long time since I have posted, so much has happened to me and my family. Paul and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary- I cant believe that it has been a year already! I am now an Assistant Principal at 2 elementary schools in our county, my little sister is pregnant again and Keirsten and I had a table at a local craft fair. Here are some of the items that I sold- altered canvases- i even had 2 people that pre-ordered ones for me to complete and mail to them! Pretty impressive right???

These are some altered dominoes that i colored with alcohol inks and made into necklaces and pins-

This is an altered canvas that i did-and sold at the show

This is another altered canvas that I did, I mailed it to my good friend Fran in VA.

New Art to Share

I have been working hard on all kinds of new art over the past few months. Loosing my craft room really set me back both in my heart and my creativity, but I have dealt with it and now I am back full force. Here are some pieces that I have created over the long winter months.
This is a piece I created for our EWV- Grungepaper rose swap- I love using Wendy's stamps and making the grunge paper roses.

We had a black and white tag swap on out All Things Tim Group Site and I created a few B&W tags- these were my favorites- 1 was a Johhny Cash tag, one was using Wendy's new clothing stamps and the other was using the new bottle stamp:

Next is a tag that I created for a "bird" swap- I used white paint to stamp the birds and DI's to color the tag:

I was also in a Tin Swap- I decided to create a beachy tin, since I live at the beach and its so much of who I am- I loved making this tin, I used Alcohol Inks to color the tin and Staz-on to stamp some images.

My friend and I went to a stamp show in Columbia in the spring and I wanted a cool bracelet to wear- I have never made any jewlery before- I used all of Tim's ideology pieces to decorate the bracelet- Ted from Stampers Anoyomous loved it!

This is my very first ATC- I was in an ATC swap on the EWV site - I created 6 of these ATC's using Wendy Vecchi's bottle and flower stamps- I stamped the bottle onto acetate and colored it with AI's.

These were 3 of the 9 pennants that I created for the ATT group- we had to create pennants using inspirational words- this was a lot of fun for me beacuse I love to display words like "Dream", "Hope" and "Love" around my room:

And last but not least was the hardest swap that I was ever a part of that was a Circus Book swap- we had to make 17 pages to send in- I never thought I would finish the clown pages, but I am so glad that I did. The book that we got was great and I loved using my Tim circus stamps!

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas 2009

Well I have drooled over these tags for 2 years now- not feeling at all confident that I could create one, but this year I decided to give it a try. It is day 3 for Tim and day 3 for me, I have completed days 1 and 2. So here is a peek at Mr. Holtz's day 1 tag and my version of it. I didnt have all of the same stamps, ink, tools etc, so I had to improvise, but I think it turned out well! Tell me what you think! Now I'm off to get inky!
