Secret Sister Box Round 2

Its taken me a long time to write about round two. I had an awesome secret sister who sent me some pretty amazing items. She zentangled with acrylic paint and it actually had texture and then coverd it in glossy accents. She also gave me an art Doll thats got to be the cutest lil doll I have seen in a while. She put some metal charms in the box as well. She did a few ATCs that anyone would be proud to put in their collection. She did a few other awesome things as well. Pauvla thank you for everything you are a wonderful sister. (((hugs)))

My box unfortunately did not have pictures taken as I had wanted to do because I was in a hurry and ended up forgetting.  Of all things thats what I had to forget? But it is. My sister however was kind enough to send a picture of the three handmade items back to me. The rest of it after that was stash items. I have to admit I was laid up with a bad back and didnt feel well most of the time for this swap but didnt want to drop out if I could help it. Anyhow out of my stash I threw in some beads and thread and some friendly plastic. And on the bottom was a breast cancer charm in remembrance of my mother.  So in you patience here is the picture of the cross stitch item I did because it could be done in bed on my back and the two ATC's I sent her that I did:

POST 3, and Secret Sisters assigned

WE GOT OUR SECRET SISTERS!!! I am so so so excited.  She is someone I know a little about and its great.

I also went to a flea market and found FOUR old medical encyclopedias that will be great to use as art journals. They are perfect and exactly what I have been looking for. And I can not wait to get started with my art journaling in them. I gat a few boxes and I also got some patterns for cross stitching and other needlepoint crafts. I got 2 large hoops to help with my needle point since the 2 I have are small and I lost one as it is. I also got some eyelash yarn at walmart...its a beautiful fiber. Some of the boxes had things in them.  I also got a jar of buttons. Which is great, I LOVE buttons, they are so useful.

I am happy and my dog is happy and I may have to use a magnifier to do my cross stitch I am ok with that. Its gorgeous and I am proud of my work.  I am working on a present for my cousin who just got married as well as working on my Secret Sister project.

I am hoping to join another swap soon but I can't find one right now. But I will concentrate on making this box as awesome as it can ever be for now. I want my SS to love this more than anything. I want her to think she got the best box out of the group.

First Real Post, but 2nd Actual and my fairy painting

Okay so, we get to make the first artistic entry. I want to start it out but introducing you to the main man in my life since I graduated high school.  Though I must admit he has lived with my parents so I don't hurt him. These are pictures of Sam. If you want to know his story I can tell it to you sometime, but I don't feel comfortable writing it out for everyone and their grandma to see.  Without further adieu here is Sam...


I was also in a Secret Sister Box Swap and I hope that my sister loves my box.  This is the box and the goodies I sent. I am anxiously awaiting to hear a reply from her or someone that she likes what she received.


I have recently also painted a purple fairy. Its a Melted Crayon technique that I learned from Martha (seekingforart). After melting the crayons and findingthe image I painted her with acrylics. This was just a process to get my juices flowing so she is only on bristol board which is a little bumpy and I dont care too much for that. But anyway...here she is.

Please respect that all these items are my creations and do not take images without asking for my consent. And if you use the images you are to credit me. Thank you.

This is to be my blog for art related topics.  I am happy to be starting back into my artistic side as it always kept me healthy and happy.  It was where I found my answers. I have not yet decided if I want this to be a private blog or not.  But I ask for everyones respect of my work and my art and do not remove any pictures from this blog and please unless you link it in pintrest do not pin any of my work.  That said I am very eclectic in my art and run back and forth from one medium to the next. I also enjoy doing an array of multimedia pieces.  Come along for the ride and lets hope its a colorful adventure.

Please hold on for my blog to come together. I realize its not quite set up in any kind of order or anything.  It will get there someday.
