Preparing Canvases; Gift Card Bounty; Journal Page

Saturday morning I painted two canvases for my paper towel/dryer sheet art work. Later I went to Michael's with my gift card from Patty
and had a ball picking out what I wanted.
The cashier was so funny. When I gave her the cards, plus one coupon
she said: "It's almost like getting it for free!"
Well, yes, frankly it is FREE to me.
Isn't that what a GIFT CARD is all about?
And I wrote in my new journal sketchbook
that was also a gift from Patty.
If you'd like to read the sage writings from a crone

Two more days of weekend ahead
I hope to get more art done.
Actually I sewed on two of the fabric pieces to the canvases above
and will show them tomorrow. Are you enjoying a long weekend too?
I hope you are having a really good time and will share it with me
either in your comments or on your own blog.

  5. Yes I'm having a great weekend too. Some friends had a surprise welcome back party for me last night. Lots of fun. And today another friend invited me over for a welcome back lunch. Everyone really missed me and they're so happy I'm back. It's all making me feel special and loved.

  8. What a neat book! I am looking at trying to do an altered art book using a child's board book and gesso-ing out all of the pages for new art. I hope to try it soon!
