Back in the High Life Again...

I know I've been gone a while again, but I had good reason - I was feeling the anemia worse than normal and also getting ready for some tests to find the cause. So far, I'm OK, but I have one more test next week. Also, I was setting up the new computer. It is done and I have some neat goodies coming up the next few days.

I have also managed to finish the body of my quilled cardinal. It is ready for the tail feathers next. So far, I am very proud of how it is turning out.

Well, I'm back blogging. I was out of the loop for the last week setting up my new computer! I forgot what a mess it is to set up a machine from scratch. I am in definite love, though. :) I will be able to create again in the next couple of days, so be on the lookout for new freebies.

The ATC above is from a cyberfriend - Antonella. the base is a photo of a flower she took herself and then she accented it with quilling. You can see her other work on her blog. The link is in the sidebar.

I just had to share another pictureof my fur babies. These two are Smoke and Button. They are two of a set of triplets that are a bit tricky to identify at times. These two can be identifies by the heart-shaped 'button' on Button's belly, and the smokey color of the dark fur on Smoke. (I now - kinda obvious names, huh?) Their sister is named Curley Sue for the wavy, curley fur and whiskers she has.

Here it is! (big drumroll) My first full kit!!! The papers are industry standard 12"x12" and a boocoo of elements. I have plans for an add-on of extra elements in the works, so keep an eye out for it.

Today has been another unproductive day. Between not feeling up to snuff and the dh drooling all over the video game sites, not a lot of art was made today. Good thing I had the element pack made up in advance. ;-) I am on pins and needles, though...I was able to finance a new laptop just for graphic work!!!!! (Happy Donuts!!!!)

You can get the last one (for now) here.

Anyone for a little sneakey Pete?

I'm working on my first full kit right now (slowly). I will give you a hint - it deals with a rite of passage. I have included a sneek peek of a part of one of the elements. Can you figure it out?

Today I'm posting another in the color pack series. Have you seen where I'm going with this as well?

You can download the pack here.

Coffee Anyone?

Well, we survived the storms with no problems in our neighborhood. Much of Oklahoma is underwater or blown away, though. that the hazard of living in tornado alley.

As you know I have several rats as pets (or is it I am a pet of several rats?) A friend got a great, short, video of Whistle Britches stealing a sip of coffee. She now has to lap a few drops of coffee every chance she gets. :) Check out this video:

Today's freebie is the Pink Pack. You can download here.

April Floods Bring May Gills

We are currently having so much rain, I feel like duck! Fortunately, we have taken no damage or had any flooding where we live. We needed the rain a couple of days ago, but now the ground is saturated and we don't need the rain.

All these storms has had me really down with pain. I haven't been doing much artistically, fortunately I have the color element packs. :-> Sounds like the next round is moving in (thunder and all).

Today was a completely boring day. Nothing happened to be worth talking about, so I'll just post another color element pack.

You can dowbload it here.

Digital Doings

I've been thinking about all the uses of digital scrapbooking products. Since they can be used both digitally and printed out for traditional use, why not use them in more places. Collage, altered books, ATCs, greeting cards, any art format.

With that in mind, I started a series of color coordinated element packs in png format that can be used for any project in any program that accepts this format. If you have ANY suggestions or requests, PLEASE leave me a comment on the blog and I will see what I can come up with.

This is the first of the color series. You can download it here.

Spring Thing(s)

Spring is in full swing in Oklahoma. The redbud and dogwood trees are in bloom, the wildflowers (weeds) are springing up in yards, and Mother nature is having PMS. We have been having tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and floods every few days. It looks like it will continue for at least another week. I know our lakes need the rain, but everything else is soaked! Roads are washing out, creeks and rivers are flooding, and the mold after the rain is aggravating allergies. Oh well, at least we will have great flowers!

I am currently working on a largish freebie just for Spring. This one has larger elements in it, so please be patient for it to arrive as I share this computer. :)
