just my yarn

...Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things...

sometimes less is more.

look how little this has on it and how pretty great it is-i threw some gesso on the color copy hoping that it would crackle and when that didn't happen, i started sanding (when all else fails-get out the sandpaper!) then i put some watered down citrine (new color!) lumiere and voila...a couple of pieces of paper. i don't know, i just thought- stop there. so y'all come on down to red lead tomorrow-i'll be altering some more of these fab cab cards and don't worry- i won't stop there...lots of paint and crowns and stamps and great fun stuff. :-)

here's my red, white and blue atc.

i live in a town where people do not like change. pretty stodgy, pretty right, pretty safe...so, the big deal this year is.....will the july 4th parade follow the same route as it always has? and why would it not? well, there has been major construction on the parade route for the past 5-6 months with no end in sight. msd is laying pipe and they hit limestone and instead of moving 10 feet per week down the street, they have been moving about 10 feet every month, maybe...and...the parade route is right in front of my house which means that the party that i have given for the past 10 years probably will not happen this year. i haven't sent out the invites, but i am sure that people who normally come are starting to twitch a bit. it's a funny event- every year, the same people bring the same things and we all stand around and complain about the same stuff- not enough live music, too many politicians, the schnucks shopping cart...so i am sort of looking at this red, white and blue cutie as my homage to the birthday of our country.

a new tag...


i got busy crafting early this AM. funny how the bug hits me at odd times... and i've been busy hauling books out of the basement to get ready for our webster-wide garage sale this saturday. fun, fun...thanks to angelica for this lovely image.

the longest word.

here it is-
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, noun
(NOO-muh-noh-UL-truh-MY-kruh-SKOP-ik-SIL-i-koh-VOL-kay-no-koh-NEE-o-sis,
nyoo-)

A lung disease caused by inhaling fine particles of silica.

[From New Latin, from Greek pneumono- (lung) + Latin ultra- (beyond,
extremely) + Greek micro- (small) + -scopic (looking) + Latin silico
(like sand) + volcano + Greek konis (dust) + -osis (condition).]

45 letters!

red, white and blue


sometimes it's fun to paint and layer and yadda, yadda, yadda- but sometimes it's just heaven to whip out the markers and the cheesy old dried up watercolor set and color in between the lines- 1,2,3 and i'm almost done with my red, white and blue atc. so y'all hurry on down and pick yourselves up one of these fab new rubber stamps at best little stamp store around.
p.s. they have markers and watercolors too.
