A creative thanks


I needed to send a thank you card. So instead of paying $4.00 for one I did what any frugal minded crafter would do and made my own. The reason for the thank you was sewing/craft related so I decided to use that as the theme.

Here is the finished product. Ta da!



I can’t take all the credit for this idea though. My inspiration came from a little something that was left on my coffee table some years ago, by a young gentlemen, who I let sleep on our couch one night. I woke in the morning to find him gone and almost missed this, mainly because the table had so much random junk scattered on it. Luckily before I shifted everything this arrangement caught my eye.

Ta da!




Conclusion: Inspiration can come from the strangest of places. Oh, and sometimes it’s good not to be a neat freak.

I’m back! and at the dentist…

Hey all!

Wow, it’s been over a month since my last post! How neglectful I’ve been, tsk tsk. But now that spring is kinda here, well just around the corner at least, I feel ready to put my blogging muscles back to work.

Drawing really is one of my passions and I have been neglectful of that as well. sigh. So to remedy this i have decided to sketch a lot more and to share what I draw! Are you excited!? You should be!

To start it off here is a self drawing after my visit to the dreaded dentist…..


( Note my puffy cheek. I would also like to point out this sketch isn’t exactly true to life. If it was I would have to put in an insane amount of freckles and the paper would look a mess. )

Actually I  really like my dentist! He’s super nice and explains everything but I always feel wonky after the freezing, sigh, and it usually costs me money, double sigh. Would someone please explain to me why a crown costs so freakin much!!!!???

Oh! I went to see Battle:LA last night, which was sweet, but even sweeter…….

the trailer for Hangover 2!!

Now I have a reason to look forward to Memorial Day even though I’m not American!


Conclusion: I know in an earlier post I said I wanted to merry a bookstore owner, scratch that. I want to merry a dentist! Free oral care for life!!
