ready, set...CREATE!

Happy new year to one and all...I hope everyone has enjoyed the holiday break.

I was recently reading Teesha Moore's blog and saw that she had signed up for Mary Ann Moss's "Remains of the Day - a shabby journal of scraps" on-line class. I clicked on the link and after thinking about it for a bit, I thought...what the heck. I have joined the yahoo group that MAM set up for the class and I was pleasantly surprised that a few people I know, besides Teesha, are also taking the class.

The only reason I hesitated was that I recently signed up for DJ Petitt's on-line class "Memories and Manipulations" which starts on January 4. I'm really looking forward to this one! If you are interested, check it out soon as registration closes on Monday!!

Here are a few pics of my journal cover and the start of my signatures for the journal. I used some painted fabrics I made in a Traci Bautista class some time ago as the base of my cover.

So, I am off to a strong start on the art front for 2010. Wishing everyone a creative new year. Cheers!

sherlock...not, it turns out I never made it to the sneak preview after all. A killer headache that came on around 3pm that afternoon prevented me from attending so when I got home from work, I went right to bed. As it turns out, when Wes returned from the movie he had an interesting story to share. The theatre stopped the film before it finished and an usher announced to the audience that not only had they misplaced the last reel of the film, they had mixed up the order of the reels they had played. Wes said that explained some of the continuity issues that came up.

They did get a free pass and discount on concession for a future date. How bizarre.

...still haven't managed to see the movie since it came out...maybe tomorrow.

We did see Avatar with some friends last night. AWESOME movie! I highly recommend it.
