This wonderful magazine photo slipped out of some sheet music I bought at an estate sale recently. It is pretty large and I had to fold it down to fit in my scanner. So I am thinking it came from a Life Magazine. The adds on the back look to be from the late 40's or 50's. I love this picture and I think I am going to make it up into a Valentines card to give my hubby. What will you create with it? I hope you enjoy!!
It is still far from done...But had to share with you today some of what has been done. This lovely box is going to be given to one of my followers when it is finished.....Instructions on how to enter will be given when I post pictures of the completed project. I am so excited...A little bit more work on the box then time to fill it up. As you can see I have already started collecting into it because it is so darn cute. See you all soon!!
It always makes me chuckle to myself....With all the wonderful scrapbooking and collage supplies on line available at a mouse click. There are times I just can not find what I am looking for. Sooo...On that note...Today I am going to try my hand for the first time at making my own word sheet. Wish me Luck! Lol
When I first came to blogging one of the things that struck me was the strong sense of community many of us create here in our cyber world. We are separated by such long, long distances. Yet here on our blogs we have tea together, gather for projects...chat..share wins and losses..Support each other with kind words and gentle prods. It has been an amazing experience for me. I am planning a project to say Thank You to my followers....If you have read any of my blogs you know I have been collecting my whole life. My home is filled to the rafters (not in a weird way) with treasures I have "found" over the years.
After dreaming away in my Somerset Life mags and visiting all my other blog friends who have done such beautiful giveaway's I decided it was something I wanted to do also. This last week I found a pretty little box and have been busy decorating it...The next step will be filling it with what ever I find as I move around my studio. Then...It will be time to post it and start the giveaway. I can't wait...Can you?
And I need to add....Thank you to Art Blog for this great image. Now I downloaded this before I "understood" about making sure I knew who I got them from before I saved them...(Jill explained it all to me..Thank you dearie!!) So if this did not come from Art Blog I apologize. I have gotten much better abut making sure I give credit to my other bloggers for their fantastic images they share.
We are having some beautiful sunny weather here in our valley...But it is cold.
Every time I sit down to do some work one of my little helpers aka my sweet kitties comes to sit on me. Not content to be on my lap...Momo trys to crawl up my shoulder stretched out across me. Her soft pink nose tucked into the lobe of my ear. The Kits Morris and Milo rest their heads on the corners of my laptop and keep licking my fingers as I type. Sigh....so much help...I think they want me to take a nap with them. I keep trying to distract them with mouse toys...but no luck. All they want is snuggles. It must be time to turn on the heat in my studio and shut the door. Out they go....But they so tempted me lol.
The picture is of Morris...He spends a lot of time outside...His nose is Always dirty and check out those ears. Sometimes he brings his catches home to share....Such a guy.lol.
