I am so excited, guess what I finally won something
and something I have been wanting
I won a free blogger custom blogger template from
Lately I have been feeling blah about this blog

new banner etc, but if you don't know
enough about code you just cant do it.
so stay tuned for a new looking
exciting redo of my blog........

mixed media

this is a little postcard sized mixed media piece I did
you know I had it in a frame (ikea) on top of my
fireplace forever, I dont think I ever showed it on my blog
today I went to lunch with the neighbour
then I went to visit my friend in the hospital
I have been friends with her from grade 6
we introduced her to her husband
we have been together thru thick and thin
and the thin is coming now
what do you do when you don't know what to say
all I did was hold her hand and tell her I loved her

The good bad and the ugly

You remember this canvas, its one I did at a class
and really I have not been to happy with
it .  It has been laying around the studio,
and I keep looking at it and thinking
eh.  So yesterday, I did a redo of it
I have not finished yet but wanted to
give you a peek.

here it is.  What do you think?
I like it I think a little more edgy
