September 7, 1979 is the day I met my husband.
Happy Anniversary Honey!
We were car flirting on a long drive
from the west coast to Ohio.
Anyone else ever car flirt???

I found some incredible stamps from Lost Coast Designs
at the CREATE Chicago vendor's mall.

I found Gary Hirsch's Bot Joy Blog.
Wow that guy is a genius!
Go read it and you will want to make some yourself!

For some reason this has become another favorite spread.

Here I was inspired by a Chagall painting I found in an art book.
The cut out of it has been sitting on my table, looking at me.
I wanted to do something for 9-11.....
Something to commemorate the heavy tragedy.
The leaping man over the city seemed right.


I used a glaze pen resist on this.
The bird is from a Tracie Lyn Huskamp StencilGirl stencil.
Swallows Stencil S038 

And last but not least.....
Happy Birthday to my sweet son in law Shawn!
He loves sushi... 
I messed up the Crystal Lacquer
covering the sushi rolls to make them shiny.
I was impatient.... so after awhile I put the heat gun on it.
It made parts of it bubble up. Oh well.

Happy Arting!
