The Chick is back!

Well, after what seems like a very long hiatus (two months to be sure) I have started scrapping again!  Hooray!
Here are my two latest . .  .

                                                    Book of Wonders

                                  Hiding Behind Closed Doors
                                      (for "A Scary Challenge @ Deviant Scrap) 

I was totally inspired by Hollie's new Art Dollies kit available now exclusively at her new shoppe here.  Joining her there is one of my favorite artists, ever: Marsha Salyer Jorgensen (Tumble Fish Studio) and as a guest designer for a bit, my friend Tangie Baxter.

Well, where in the world have I been?

Just piping in to say that I know it's been way too long since my last post but I have recently set up a "family" blog to chart our unschooling adventures in addition to my artistic ones and that has been taking quite a bit of my time to maintain.  I also seem to be on a bit of lull when it comes to my digital scrapping and at this point I'm really just hoping that I get my mojo back soon.  I have been working more on some individual pieces, mostly mixed media collage and once the series of the three are completed I will be posting some photos.
I also have been busy with the usual things that consume my time this time of the year; Earth Day stuff!  I was put in charge of organizing the events for the children of the community and not surprisingly decided that I would share with them my love of creating with recycled treasures.  We will be decoupaging and decorating soup tins to be used as pencil holders, planters, or whatever they choose to "re-use" it for.  My darling daughter (as my assistant) has created some other really cute little things to use as examples of other projects that can be done using recyclable items.  It's sure to be fun; ART always is!
And since I can't refrain from scrapping entirely; I  have created this flyer for the events planned.

Special thanks to my scrap designer friends for all the whimsical elements used:
Christine Honsinger {Fiddlette Designs}, Catherine Paturet and Dawn Vander Stoep.
