I’ve been working on some different digital designs for a project. The pink one made really nice copies so I’m definitely using that one. The dark one copied ok but didn’t like it once it was on the cardstock. I’ve been putting other embellishments on it trying to get the look I want but am still not satisfied. I REALLY wanted the white set to copy but the subtle background texture didn’t show.

I’ve been busy messing up my nice clean and organized art zone.

First I made this clock for my Mario Bros. obsessed son. He was so funny when I gave it to him…he smiled so big and then did a fake pass out to show his glee.

My next project was a new address book. Our old one was your basic boring black faux leather. I found a REALLY ugly binder at a garage sale that would fit the bill as soon as I spruced it up a bit. Now I can keep my book out on the counter instead of buried in the drawer.

I finally got my art zone clean and organized. I had made a really good dent in the organizing process a couple of months ago but then of course..I got sidetracked and the mess multiplied. I’ve been in an end of the school year panic. I’ve been trying to get as much cleaned and organized all through the house as I possibly can before I have both kids home ALL THE TIME.

I’m having trouble getting my blog to look the way I’d like. The formatting is goofy and driving me crazy. I want the pictures to just sort of sit in amongst the text not totally mes with it! One of these days I get it all figured out. For now I’ll just say sorry it looks odd. 🙂

I’ve been working on lots of projects…scrapbooking-altered style, my anniversary squares for ABC_altered book club, a framed memory box and lastly my COFFEE themed altered book. I’m not thrilled with my pages so far but I’m diving in anyway.

I’ve finished and mailed off my 15 4×4’s for a chunky book swap on BookArtz. The theme just jumped out and grabbed me right away. I can’t wait to see what the other participants create!

I got the sweetest Mother’s Day gift from my son today. Each 1st grader was given a blank book to create and illustrate a story about what mom means to them. It was so sweet it made me cry.

It was really funny reading what he sees as my job and what means the most to him. Apparently my ability to make pancakes is really high on his list.

What a treasure!
