did you ever notice

when you are inspired to make something, the only things you use are whatever is sitting in front of you?  i do a lot of swapping on swap-bot, and i had a swap that needed to alter a wooden spool.  along the wall behind me and in my garage i have stacks of stuff - but what did i use? yes.  as i sit at my desk, all the items used in my little button ballerina were at arms length.  crazy huh?

i've been tagged!

Cheryl tagged me to come up with ten things about me, so here goes:
1. I was married in 1979 and divorced in 1982 - only marriage... so far.
2. I was a rainbow vacuum cleaner sales person but had to quit because I was allergic to the dust.
3. I have been drawing and painting since I was a toddler (so my mother says).
4. My first love is photography.  Always wanted to be a professional photographer.
5. I'm addicted to yard sales.
6. I started smoking when I was 12, and quit in 1989 - I was hypnotized!
7. I was a picture framer for 5 years - this is where my love of tools began!
8. I lived in Florida - Lee County for 1 year, then moved to Palm Beach County where I lived for 20 years.
9. I took three years of ballet - but always wanted to be a tap dancer.
10. I have my MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer).  Sounds impressive huh?  2 years, $7k later and I didn't do anything with it!

So there you are.  So I am selecting the following so they can share!
Corrrine at dos fishes
Terri at Pringle Hill Studio
Marsha at Tumblefish Studio

Let's see what you got!

painting with pam carriker

spent the day at kecia's with a very fun group of gals with pam leading the way.  it was interesting to see how everyone interpreted their drawings.  believe this (or not) this started out as a self portrait - doesn't look anything like me at all....  i wasn't very happy with it until i started coloring her in.  it's so hard for me to draw realistic - everything always looks very cartoonish.  oh well - i need to own it.  the stamps are pams - very cool huh?
