...another week has passed

Got a chance to do a bit of art this week....

the stone angel spread was inspired by a couple of stone angel statues that stand near where my mom is buried at Holy Cross Cemetary...here in Milwaukee...they stood out from the many many photos i took because they both were missing a hand and then that inspired me to write the prose that i included on the spread...




this gothic arch was inspired bye a tangle of brightly colored fibers that somehow in a way expressed tangled emotions that bind love and art to the world...which i wrote a bit of poetry for the rear of the arch...





And here is a new swap i'm just beginning to participate in at mixed media madams...

this house page is for Sandee she is going to bind her book pages into an art street!
I used vintage envelopes for the base and then added my photo from when i was about 7 years old to the windows...holding onto my little white patent purse that i have inscribed on it "Art $"




These next pages are for Heather Holst...here theme is Mary Mary quite contrary...
I used vintage flower book pages and vintage seed packets and created a base...




and if you remember back a bit when i had the honor of going to my daughter's bf's ultrasound and they determined that they were having a little girl...well....

may i introduce...

LILLIAN ELISABETH!





We all got little goodies for her and I made a diaper cake with the goodies!



And here are the latest family photos that shannon and kevin had taken...




and then miss maddy came home with her school pics...and look how sweet they turned out! ...I'm still waiting for Xander's pics and will post as soon as I get them!!!



BIG HUGZ TIL NEXT TIME!!!
