Art, baseball, children lol the Abc's lol

So we are way into baseball season here and with games and practices along with chorus when is there time for art? Well I have been working on this one slow but surely when will it be finished? Well we could say I am letting it be organic in its rendering but then I will be fooling myself haha for I haven't been that deep since my college days! Well I am having a time working at it and trying to let it come to me naturally that's why I'm in a funk with it I am pushing too much to try to finish it. Anyone ever feel like that? Might have to let this rest and move on, but with the way things are going I do not know when I'll ever even get finish or even start a new piece but I am sketching. I do have another sketch book I want to make for another friends daughter and I cannot wait to show you all. Alright I'll let you get back to Arting because this was a dry post.

Busy! Happy spring! Happy Easter!

Wow, this spring break from school is just flying by. Hope everyone had a great, safe Easter and enjoyed themselves and for those who aren't religious hope you all enjoyed the beautiful spring weather! Well we have been busy in this household. Although I haven't been creating anything arty I did do a few Pinterest things. You know I did not think I would like Pinterest because of all the hype, but it just saves me so much more time in searching for crafty or DIY ideas to come up with especially for the children, almost better than mags and searching online! Heartslilian has joined Pinterest so if you all are interested I think you can follow me, but I will have to add the link and badge for it. Okay so on with what we Pinterested. Lol. I made home made liquid laundry detergent and I have to say it turned out awesome. The way it makes our clothes feel soo clean is wonderful. I did however added a raspberry essence ( only because this is what I had left) to the liquid because even though it smells so lemony and good, that does not stick to the clothes, the clothes smelled clean but I just wanted a nice scent so it is optional. This is going to save me big bucks, especially when I start drying my clothes it in the line in the sun. The only down side I have to say is that melting the soap, though it smells wonderful I have to say by the time I was done I felt like I could smell it for a day or so afterwards really annoying lol. Other than that awesome especially if you go in on it with family. Okay the next was actually 2 of my oldests ideas of what they wanted to do over break, so DIY terrariums. They had fun even when they were able to add a little toy inside. Really pretty to look at. We used recycled glass bottles like, coffee and jelly bottles. Needles to say we are enjoying watching these mini greenhouses. Well I hope you all have a great week. There are lots hung on and I am in the mood to shake things up. Happy Arting ! As always leave comments or questions, greatly appreciated and will reply!

Off to a tea party!

Here is a quick arty thing I did today. I just used pages from an old dictionary and used it as wrapping, tied with string and embellished with my own crochet doily. I reused a Victoria secrets bag by covering the logos, thought it turned out nice. Now I know my stock of gift bags is really low! Yikes! Well off to have tea. Hope you all have a wonderful creative day! Always feel free to leave a comment. Love hearing from you all

Finding time, Eluding me

Good morning out there, I am having a very difficult time to find the Time to create or even sketch. What is strange is that I have the urge to clean instead lol spring fever! I guess my creating is really involved because I cannot work when my house is a clutter and then my brain is all cluttered as well. So I say out with it so I can get a move on who knows how long my muse will stay with me until her next vacay. So let me leave you this art journal piece that I just finished. Can I just say , when in doubt bring out the black paint. Lol. Have. Great Thursday....hey I accomplished something arty...and I wrote this post hehe....

Some quick watercolor ladies to loosen up

Hi there blogland. it has been forever and a day. this time change and crisp spring weather makes me want to spend all day cuddling with my son in bed. but trying to keep a toddler from running around Is not in the cards so as i am sequestered at home because potty training is the big event here i leave you with two watercolor paintings I did with the same portrait and they both took on a life of their own. The First Lady I created I know I over painted but I just wasn't happy with it and kept adding which I think is very easy to do and somedays I have a problem... Yes I admit it. Lol well I hope you enjoy. I did try to do a video on the process but alas I have no space In iMovie. Hope fully everyone is okay.

Lots of vids, some arty work. not enough though...

Hi everyone, 

      Still alive.  First, i just want to let Sandy know that your prize is on its way,

hopefully in the next few days lol..  Well, it has been a battle in this household to get

 anything constructive finished,  what with all the germ bugs around, three boys that

seem to think getting sick is allowed  hehe... and Oh the laundry flying at me in every

 direction. I also think all three of them are having growth spurts at the same time as it

 seems like i live in the kitchen.. it must be a consiracy against mommy i tell you!  hehe 

 love it and wont trade it for the world.  So you can say i haven't gotten very much done

 in the way of arting.  Glamorous, is the life of a mom with three growing boys.
         On the other hand i have been enjoying making quick you tube videos on this and

that, so much fun!  and i can do it when there is a spare moment to be had  lol, i dont

 have art supplies i have to clean up.  I have found ART GEEKS.  who knows them?

  awesome inspiring videos come from there, and always enjoy Jennibellie videos.  So i

 have been sustaining my craving for arty stuff by watching others do arty stuff...ahh

    I have been working on a recycled greetings card journal which Jennibellie whom

 kindly shared with everyone. i think i will be gifting it to a friends daughter whom loves

 crafty things.  here are the links, hope you enjoy and as always please let me know if

 you have enjoyed them.
