And still, they cough...

 Perhaps I shouldn't be drawing so many skeletons, with the current state of health in the household.  Bronchitis, a 14 hour stay in the ER for asthma, and another little one tonight coughing and all stuffed up... how long will this go on?  These days I think I may resemble my little sketch above!
Speaking of that sketch, I do have a little tutorial on making this art journal from junk mail (yes, still on the junk mail kick).  Once I'm sure I won't be taking anyone else to the ER this week, I'll get it up on here. Boy, I had great plans for having an Etsy store open by March, but my family sure had different ideas. That's okay, it will open eventually. And I have a few little gems to put in there already. I am also looking forward to the beginning of the Indie Business class with Elsie and company. I hadn't visited her blog in awhile, and serendipitously, there was a post about starting your own indie art business. Squeal! I can't wait for it to start! Of course, you can't talk about Elsie without thinking cute, and speaking of cute...

A huge thank you to Jennifer at the Naughty Secretary Club for my fabulous new book! If you have not checked out her blog (or seen her show Craft Lab), you must, immediately! She always has loads of great inspiration, tutorials, reviews, and right now, a new book giveaway. It's one of my favorite stops on the web. Thanks to Constance and Dale, I've got a stack of fabulous fabrics from Sew Mama Sew on the way, perfect for projects from this book!


  1. Oh my gosh! Your art is AMAZING! Where do you get your inspiration? I've recently started altered art, but I can't seem to get any projects to work yet... :(
