Following a (loose) rule of gluing down one light colored spot for every two dark spots, I was able to create a print like that of a lepoard's fur.

I was using my Fiskar's paw paper punch, with light and dark blue cardstock. With each punch, five, small ameba shaped paper debris littered my work space. At the end of my punching fiasco, I had a considerable amount of debris to pick up and throw away. But instead of throwing the scraps away, I found an innovative way to use them!

The Secret 7 Talenthouse has posted the winning art of for their Album Covers. In January, I shared my talent house submit. Unfortunately, my art did not get picked for print. Making light of my defeat, I decided to turn my egg art in to wearable art. I pasted my poly clay eggs on to a regular, plain headband. What an egg-cellent statement piece for Easter.

Last Thursday I got to work with Kevin Bacon! I applied last minute to a film extra opening. Because I had no experience as a film extra, I had strong feelings that I wouldn't be getting a call back for the job. So you can imagine how shocked I was when I was given the job! Working as KB's extra was great fun! When the project is released to the public, maybe I'll be able to update here with some pictures.

Recently, my friend's Doctor perscribed her an eye patch to wear. Its black, bulky look was none too pleasing to my friend, nor was the fit. Feeling sympathetic to her situation, I asked her if I might try and make her a patch more "fitting" to her style and needs. She complied and willingly gave me one of her current eye patches from which to make a pattern from. I disassembled her original patch and laid it out on thick, recycled card stock. I traced around it and and cut it out--making myself a pattern.

I have a pug calendar that reveals a new pug for every day of the year. I enjoy EVERY picture of each pug shown so much, that I find it impossible to throw ANY of the pictures away. This is one of the ways I was able to use my stash of pug mugs. What I used: 10" X 7" Purple cardstock. 4" X 7" Sky blue cardstock. 3 1/4" X 2" Hay colored cardstock. Scraps of white and pink card stock (for bunny ear band). 1/4" & 1/8" width ribbon in various colors. 10" X 1 1/2" green velum. Double stick tape, glitter, glue, scissors and 2 types of shears (pinking and cloud) 1" X 7" decorative paper border. Flower accesories. 1. When choosing a pug mug, I looked for a picture that had a clear, forward shot of the dog. I then cut the dog out.
