Bird Journal



I took Celine Navarro's "Bird Journal" class today....what FUN!! This was only the second class I've ever taken and I can't even believe how enlightening classes are! Just looking at Celenie's "easy breezy" example was a big leap forward for me. Celeine is soo nice, encouraging, and *tres groovy*!

Even though the class was 6 hours...it was FAST! I think this alone was a huge help as I tend to "over fuss" and end up losing the very effect I was going for. Having to move so fast without thinking about it was HARD!!! I have tons of crazy-fun pages to work on....can't wait!

Merci, Celeine!!!

Sunday Play




I bought this papier mache trunk box (one of three) a couple of years ago and it's been sitting around, taking up space ever since. My little studio space is tiny ...so every box HAS to stack. So, what to do with these big dome shaped boxes? I decided to make gift boxes to stuff presents into! This one is gianormous...I could pack a sweater (with room to spare) in there!

New Banner




I've really got the autumnal thing going on these days. This is my favorite time of year... and even in Los Angeles, things are changing. I sit, looking ot the windows in my little upstairs loft studio, watchingh the afternoon sky turn smudgy grey as night creeps ever-so-slowly closer each evening. It's "light the fire and and get cozy" season at last.

Birthday Girl

It's my friend, Sarah's birthday today!




I've got one of those presents that defy wrapping, so it's the handy-dandy gift bag option. But I had to do *something* cute...so I quickly whipped up a little hanger for her. I love the wary look on the little Birthday Clown's face....it's kinda like Sarah and I are starting to feel about our birthdays.. EEEK....again?

Boo I Say...Boo!



It's still early for spooky Halloween stuff...but I was going through my books (trying to organize...Ha) and found this cranky little witch. I just had to share her with you!

BOO!!

Little Bookworm


Once-Upon-a-Time, originally uploaded by Ma Vie en Rose.

Dulci asked that we remember something we loved about our childhoods and incorporate a picture of ourselves for her journal. So here I am asking to read a story. I'm still a bookworm!
