... morning visitors waiting in line hoping to find their favourite seed

... early each morning .. I have many little visitors hoping to find something that they enjoy.
Sometimes I chop up a piece of an apple and mix it with a little bread for the cardinals.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Wishing you a day filled with little pleasures!

... if only time would stand still

Heart Journal 2012

..if only time would stand still ...  For the month of May, our project was to create a heart using aluminum foil, gesso and acrylic paints. I embossed the foil, painted on gesso then polished to reveal the relief of the paisley pattern. I splashed on layers of alcohol inks 'here and there' and embellished with a small amount of stickles.

Thank you Thealie and Libellule for this wonderful challenge. It's so nice to see our Heart Journal grow as the months go by . My apologies again as I was a little late submitting this. 

I'm looking forward to starting our next challange for June!

Thanks so much for visiting.

Dance by the Light of the Moon ~ Inspired by Jacqueline

I was asked to make another card that would hold over 110 signatures for a co-worker who is retiring. I wanted to make something a little different from the accordian book I made last time .. I was so inspired by Jacqueline's beautiful 'home decor' artwork that I created this card holding many pages for signatures, put together using the Japanese stab binding technique. Other pages can be viewed on my flicker photostream. Thanks for the inspiration Jacqueline! Thank you everyone for viewing :)
