A Very Merry Christmas to All

Saturday, January 25, 2014


What a mess this Blog is. I have no idea what went wrong, but it is truly a disaster. Please bear with and hopefully over the next few weeks I will be able to neaten it up and start the New Year with new pictures, some tutorials and hopefully some interesting links.
The end of last year was so very exciting. I spent 3 glorious months in New Zealand. I fell in love wit the country and the people and look forward to going back. The New year started with a Hospital stay, so the month of January is getting wiped off and my year will begin with February LOL Hows that?
 I consolidated my two groups into one mixed media group. There is a button linking you to the group up on the left side of this page. Please come and join us if you dare :-) We do some fun things with mixed media and we also have a paper studio, for those who would rather play with paper then clay or other mediums.

The first quarter of the Mixed Media studio started with a Challenge (due March 31) it is an altered work alarm clock. I can't wait to see what these ladies come up with. One of the Swaps is taking a broken clock and making a scene inside. People seem to be having a problem finding clocks (broken ones). That's a shame because I think this would be a fun swap. We also have a Valentine pin or pendant swap which is closed. The girls , as far as the pic's I see, have done a great job. An on going challenge is "I Dare You" each month I dare the girls to use an item and alter it in some way. January I dared them to alter a tin/aluminum can.  I tried posting a pic of what I did but as usual Google sucks.Maybe tomorrow.
I will also post a picture of my Valentine. In another group I belong to we were given challenges for each month, using what was provided. We paid for a box of 6 months  full of challenges. Ironically February's could be used for my Valentine swap so I got to kill two birds with one stone.

I'm thinking, that once I get my act together, I'd like to have a contest. I'd like to get my blog membership up to a certain # and then give away some prizes. But I have to give that some thought.
So for now I thank those of you who managed to drop in even when this Blog wasn't very active and I hope to keep up better in this new year so hang in there......
