My sister is here
My sister Marianne is here just for a day on her way to California and Mount Shasta but she'll be back in July to spend some time here. I haven't seen her in three years so this is special time here. I started this 2 days ago so Marianne is gone now. We had a nice visit and I am looking forward to seeing her again next month.
I spent all this time cleaning the house for her visit so now its back to the studio. I really have let it go so I have a major clean to do. I want to get back to some art but there is too much disaster here so I have to clean up. I would like to be one of those people who puts everything back in its place. I still have not found a way to organize my magazine clippings that makes it easy to access it all. I have too much stuff, I am getting buried by the clutter. Hopefully I will come up with something that will work for me soon.
I am working on a new RR book and its quite a challenge, the theme is white and beautiful. Hard not to do color so I will throw some in anyways.
I really like how Sharon uses napkins in her work but I really haven't been able to find that many I liked. I found the mother lode and am in napkin heaven now. Tuesday Morning is the place to go. They have more napkins than I have seen anywhere. These are what I took home.
Some beautiful Sunflowers.
This is the front of one Marianne bought, we traded some with each other.
... and the back since they are different.
Some snowflakes, I got these on clearance for .60.
Calla Lilies and butterflies, this one is really pretty. I think that all of these will be fun to work with in either small collages or in paintings. I am sure I will be going back for more. If you have a Tuesday morning in your area check it out.
