I have been working on cards.  This is a window card made this morning.  I wanted to get more cards done but I seem to be so slow at this kind of art for some reason.
this is from the card class I took and I had fun making this one.
I just had to put up this bad!! I always said I would not go in to old age gracefully but would go in as a dirty old womyn.....yup that's the way I want it!!!!!

Have a great day everyone.  I do think Spring has actually off to do some art.

A card for my daughter's birthday...

A work of art is the unique result of a unique temperament.

A couple more pages for a journal swap.
I Did a Flora Bowley online seminar. I really enjoyed her free expression of painting.  I am doing mine which is a work in progress but I now know what I want to add to complete it so hopefully it will be finished by the weekend...The little spot in the middle just needs some little thing to be added....

I am finally back to creating. So many things to accomplish, well, you know the feeling.  Here are a couple journal pages I have completed.
One day before spring and we have cold and snowy weather!!  The weather this winter reminds me of the winters we had as a kid.  Our winters have been fairly mild in the last years....I am so looking forward to warm weather again.

a couple cards I made....the golf one was an inspiration from another card I saw....

This is a painting my granddaughter and her girlfriend did for me for my birthday.  I just love this and it sits where I can see it every day and it always makes me smile...

Our Granddog Tucker who comes to spend every day with me while Mom and Dad work and the kids are in school.  Our Pepito loves him to death and has learned a great deal about being a dog from him.  Tucker has great patience.

A finished mixed media piece I did. It is in our bathroom because the colours look good in their.  I try to incorporate some personal images in my work...the love birds are from an Anniversary card from my hubby....

this is Pepito.  We brought him to his forever home October Thanksgiving weekend.  8 years old and about 7 of those years he was kept in a cage in a puppy mill and brought out by the neck and I guess carried around that way.  he didn't trust humans at all and couldn't be picked up or patted and therefore was wanted by no one...I saw him on the internet and fell in love immediately and made arrangements to go see him.  His foster Mom taught him so walk up and down stairs and to walk on a leash..she picked him up and bonded with him and even got to pat him on occasion when he was feeling particularly trusting.  He has come so far in his little journey in our lives.  He circled the table all the time when he first came as that is all he knew how to do all those years in the he circles less and less and does happy tight little circles when ever we have been out or come down stairs in the morning.  He is happy and each day he becomes a little more trusting.  He comes up and gives me a kiss on the hand in the morning and will kiss me on the leg from behind...He will sit on the floor close to us now and will come and get treats...We are so lucky to have him.  He rules us all even the cats.

Sunday morning and my blog is finally fixed with a twist.  I wanted to call it Valerie my days in the studio but it won't let me do this without making another blog...NO WAY!! I like the look of my bellbookcandleblog so I am leaving that name as the title to come visit but on my page you'll see it say my days in the studio...I like that and it will probably confuse some people but what the will make life interesting until I get bored again...I never keep things the Aquarious moon or sun.....

Today I will spend some time putting up some art I have done over the last few months and tidbits of other things my life has taken on in the time frame I've been away.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.  It is sunny here in my part of the world.
