That’s life – C’est la vie

Where has the time gone? It’s hard to believe that there are only a couple of days left to this year. Truthfully, I haven’t been doing much on my end. I finished work at 6pm on the 23rd and I’m finally starting to relax. I spend a lot of time watching old TV shows on the web (I canceled cable TV back in November.) I haven’t been creating much art because my apartment is a mess. I have too much stuff for my current living space and it’s interfering with my mojo. I need to get rid of some stuff … Continue reading That’s life – C’est la vie

>Vintage tag – Étiquette à l’ancienne

> Today, I decided to use yesterday’s stamped tag and decorate it. I’ve had this photo ( a copy not the original) of my great-grandmother at her window for a while and was waiting for the perfect project to use it. The brick wall background seemed perfect for her. I added some vintage things: pieces of pages from french books, wallpaper, lace, lace flower and some thick fiber so it can be hung. I am very pleased with the result. *** Aujourd’hui, j’ai décidé de prendre l’étiquette étampée d’hier et de la décorer. J’ai cette photo (une copie, pas l’originale) … Continue reading >Vintage tag – Étiquette à l’ancienne

>CeeCee’s CC#6

>Another colour challenge up on CeeCee‘s blog. You have until tomorrow night to play if you feel like it. This challenge was, well, challenging, to say the least. I could still add a sentiment above the heart but right now, I’ll leave it as is. Candace tagged me over on her blog so I thought I’d play along. 1. What were you doing 10 years ago? I was working as a cashier at Reno-Depot, falling in love with the wrong guys and learning about wicca. 2. What are 5 things on your TO DO list? Wash dishes, fold and put … Continue reading >CeeCee’s CC#6

>Hoot!

>My friend Catherine tagged me on her blog. I’ll answer the tag but am not tagging anyone else for it. If you feel like doing it though, let me know! What is the object you CAN’T live without: 1. At home: my computer. It’s sad I know, but it’s the truth. 2. At work: comfortable shoes. I spend a lot of time standing up while working with kids. 3. While scrapbooking: my paper trimmer! It really makes scrapbooking easier! 4. During your hobbies/exercises: I don’t do exercise. So let’s go with the hobby part. Hmm, one object… I’d have to … Continue reading >Hoot!

>Something different and yet another tag

>Here are two cards I made last week in a workshop at Bonnidée. The stamps are reproductions of Thomas Kinkade artworks and the workshop was on colouring techniques to use with those kinds of stamps. It was an interesting workshop but more my mom’s style than mine. The cards came out beautifully but I doubt I’ll do more like this. So I’ve been tagged yet again. This time by a new blogging friend (from OWOH), Pam Bennett. So here goes… Let’s see if I can still find 7 things about myself I haven’t revealed yet. The rules:1. Link to your … Continue reading >Something different and yet another tag

>Art Cards and a tag

>Yesterday was definitely a fun experience. I met my brother for brunch before we set off on our little photographic adventure. We spent a total of 3 hours walking the Biodome and taking pictures. I haven’t uploaded them to my computer yet so you’ll have to be patient if you want to see them. There were a lot of people there, mostly families with young kids but everyone was polite. There was no pushing or shoving. Everyone was there to have fun and enjoy the view of wild animals. My favourites are always the small monkeys. I dream of one … Continue reading >Art Cards and a tag
