Well Hello Stranger!

Well hello stranger!
I am talking to myself, only because I have been gone for so long.
Some of you know what has been happening around my neck of the woods and some of you, well you know, came to my blog and found the same old post. Make a long story short that lady in the picture looking after me, yeah well we have had to look after her for a while, she gave us quite the scare. That's my Mom and I, oh about 29 years ago (ha ha). Well she has been in the hospital (ICU) for quite sometime and we almost lost her.
Straight to the good news, we did not!
So on we go, back to the blog!
This is something I did while up at the hospital and am still working on. Now some of you may gasp at what I am about to say, but I say it's okay. I have a extra copy. I received this catalog from Cosmo Cricket when they were in town last year and here is the part some may cringe at.......
I CUT IT UP!!!!!

But look I am making a book out of it. I have cut out letters and shapes and painted and have drawn bugs and flowers. It is recycling at its best.
Here is a page out of the book. Remember you can click on picture to enlarge. Are you looking at the background flowers? This is something else I have done with some Cosmo Cricket papers. Clothespins! I think they came out so cute. I made them for my favorite LSS. They have a Cosmo Cricket wall and we put up a laundry line to hang layouts on and I suggested that we make (I make) some Cosmo Cricket clothespins and that is just what I did.

How cute are these? Pretty darn cute I think!!!!

Here is just one single one close up.

This is something else I have been working on. Far from done but it is started.

I have been into making flowers lately. This is made with a coffee filter and then spritz with tattered angels glimmer mist, then put a broach in center and I love it. If you look at the picture above I have a flower with no broach in it and love it just as much.

So there you have it, that's all I have been up to. No trouble, no fun, just serious stuff. I have not even been to a scrapbook store or even Micheal's. Oh the pain! Thank you to all who have emailed me and prayed for my Mom, it worked, so thanks a bunch!
Now I must get back into a routine of some painting and some art and get some ATC's done.
So off I go to start some ATC's and get back into the swing of things.
Thanks for hanging with me!
Go make art!

Happy to see that you are back.

So glad to hear about your mom. I was wondering how everything was going. Looks like you kept yourself busy in the hospital. Great projects! Hope to see you at ATC club.
