Check out this giveaway

Kristin Hubick over at Retro Cafe` Art Gallery is giving away not 1 but 3 copies of Teach Yourself Visually-Collage and Altered Art by Roni Johnson.  So pop on over there and enter for a chance to win. She has all the rules (well only a few lol) posted under all the info.
Crossing my fingers that I win one-- I need all the help I can get with my altered messes lately :)

Back in the card groove

 guess I got into a card making mood today. must be all the inspiration from looking at fellow WOYWW's blogs. I just used scraps I had on hand and some of my new stamps I have picked up at the thrift stores, the circle stamp above and the big fan on the orange and mauve card. The bottom card was made with one of my SU sets. (will add the name later when I look)

HOpe everyone has a wonderful weekend :)

 I just couldn't wait to start altering the covers of the sketchbook I showed yesterday. Gessoed last night, will paint today. My oldest daughter went over by my desk and asked "Mom, why do you have a magazine page of a lady laying on a bed?" lol My answer "just don't ask" lol She thinks I'm a little strange to begin with  and if I try to explain she just wouldn't get it lol.

 swung to the right again. These are my catch all shelves :) The ones I had to rearrange once I got my curtains finished :)
Now, if you want to see everyone elses desks today make sure you pop on over to Miss Julia's Blog and have a looksie. Just be warned though it could take up the better part of your morning :)
The weather here is absolutely gorgeous, in the 60's for the next few days, and I am taking full advantage by getting out and doing some walking. Yesterday, the Goodwill. Today, the Salvation Army, Wednesday's just about everything is 50 % off and I am looking for some new spring dresses and the youngest daughter needs jeans :) and of course, I can't pass up the housewares section where they keep the crafty stuff lol
Have a Happy St. Patty's Day :)

Quick post

 Gift card holder that I mad for Stamp Club on friday :)
 My first attempt as layering a flower and making it pop off the page.
 To show our WOYWW cult leader Julia that yes my hair is really long lol
and my find at the Goodwill today lol There is no date on the bathing suit pattern but the men's clothes patterns are from 1969 and 1972. The sketchbook is going to be taken apart and made into possibly another altered journal lol and I just fell in love with the pompom trim in the little baggie :)
Till tomorrow when I take a pic of my desk (I'm going to do my best to make it messy tonight lol).
Hope everyone has a wonderful evening :)
