She is fierce!

4x4 clayboard, started with adding alcohol ink. It really likes the alcohol 
ink. Then some dimensional color, added some dimensional cut out I stamped out and some words! I used my new inka golds and they are yummie!  It is for a swap and I hope that my partner likes it! 

Blogger app!!!

I should have known way before now, but I did not even think about it. Mostly because I have not had my iPhone for that long really and still enjoy most things done on the computer. But OMG a blogger app. I am excited!!! :)

I have to say if you do not get excited about babies, you may have a problem. :D

Here is a baby quilt I made for a baby shower this month. I impressed myself because I started it the Saturday before the shower, which was on Friday. It took me about 4 maybe 5 hours from start to finish. Hand sewing the binding took me the longest I think.

 I am very happy with the finished result and so is the momma and daddy and baby I am sure soon too!

Happy St Patrick's Day

I had the time to make a quick check in. I have had to go out of state for a funeral. Had two deaths in the last week actually, my aunt and my husband's grandfather. Hopefully the next one will not be too close to my heart. Since they say they come in threes and all. I hope this post finds everyone else well!

School is going OK. I still have a decent GPA that I am hoping to hold on to since my math classes are coming up in about 3 months. :S But my art class has proven more difficult than I thought, ahah, but the challenge is good, makes you think. But over school, definitely! So will be glad when I am finished and can focus on more art to make and creative play. It is hard to squeeze in the time I want to. I am slowly getting back to normal I think. I am less tired and trying to manage time better.

I also have a vacation coming up again soon. I am going to the Quilt Symposium in North Carolina, so that will be super creative fun. I have class though at the same time, so gotta get on it and get stuff done early so I can be able to enjoy my vacation and classes I will be taking while down there.

Stay Safe on this St Patty's Day

Winter Blues it Seems

I had hoped that doing the 31 days of Backgrounds would help me not have the winter blues this year. But it sadly has not, really, sort of. I have gotten WAY behind on them due to being sick and other things. I am being harder on myself than I should but still it sucks. I still plan to continue. I was a lot sicker than I had thought, I am still recovering, I am not 100 percent. I am not even sure I was 100 percent before! Since my husband lost his job we have no insurance and so I have no more migraine medicine, it is about 800 bucks for 12 pills, so cannot afford that. It has been worse than I thought so far and it is only January! I am again looking into natural remedies as well as trying to redo my diet to try and prevent them

ANYWAY on to better things, it is February! I have some art projects to work on. I have homework to do always, finals this Sunday, two major papers due and  then new classes on Monday!

BUT October is right around then I will be done! Pray for me!

Down with the sickness

I have been very sick this past week with a serious cold and sinus infection. I even missed a day of work, and well you know it is serious when that happens.

I have more backgrounds coming, and there will be 31 of them. Sadly I am not able to make them consecutively, but that is OK!

2014 is about not feeling bad for what I do not get done and being thrilled with what I am able to do!

So hoping I get this cold kicked for good back to normal by Monday! Tired of sounding like either a little girl on helium or a zombie!
