Artists In Blogland

How about a blog where you can find a collection of blogs by artists who blog....sounds like a good idea to me.

A new blog is being set up to establish a directory of artists who blog...... all types of media are welcome: painting, drawing, ceramics, jewelry, photography, collage, scrap booking, mosaics, fibre art, sculpture, doll making and a bunch more that I can't think of at the moment.

Anyone is welcome to go and visit .....Artists In Blogland....and take a look and if it interests you perhaps add your blog link. Can't hurt and might even bring traffic to your blog which is definitely a bonus if you have an online business you are trying to promote.

Take care:)

Such excitments......

Guess what.........I have a brand new laptop. My hubby and my son bought it for me because I was whinging about my old one so much. I can't believe how lucky I am.......I never realized how slow and sluggish my old machine was. It's a lot different than my old laptop and I have to learn a few new thingies but that will keep my old brain cells working..........AND........the best bit is that my new laptop is in my favourite colour.......PURPLE.......I couldn't believe my eyes when it was unpacked. My hubby was a bit worried about the colour but my son assured him it was perfect......and it is:)

Take care:)

p.s.  I'm not totally spoiled...yeah I am:).......but I do have a wedding anniversary tomorrow.

Furniture make-over using spray paint and lace.....

I found this idea today that I thought was brilliant. Well I liked it away:).......probably not to everyone's taste but I was thinking of using the idea for craft show displays.

Using a length of lace.....I actually have a piece of the same lace fabric used for this idea......and a can of spray paint you can get this marvelous lacy finish.

You can find all the how-to's at Kara Paslay Designs...the link is here.

Take care:)

Something really cool....

A while back I did a post about paper artist Elsa Mora. Today I found an artist that does similar work not with paper but with leaves. Definitely unique.

The blog is called naturayarte........

Joseph Scissorhands......

It's very wet and rainy here today......which is a good thing......I'm afraid I'm one of those strange people who love rain and thunder and lightening. Instead of being frightened, I always feel contented as I'm indoors dry and secure:) I have a CD called "Thunderstorm in the Wilderness"......which I like to play when I feel the need for mental solitude...a brain vacation of a sort:)

I came across this site and I thought I'd share some of the images....

Such as the little black dress:)
