i do have to admit, a lot of this excitement is to replace that of what punk rock scrappers gave me,,, and when it went down, or away, or wherever it went,,, i was totally sad,,, i wanted it back. this is to fill that random, edgy scrapbooking void that i felt after the punk rock scrappers bit the dust,,,, i hope you likey, and i totally hope you join us over there,,,, :-D thank you for your support!!! i cant wait to see how this turns out!!! i love you alllllllll!!!! cheers nely!!!

im crazy about aceo cards as of late. atc cards too actually,,, but aceo cards are so rad. i did pick up a few from the red velvet update this past tuesday, but purchasing those has inspired me to search for more,,, some on etsy. i like these,,,,
isnt she pretty?? i found her here,,,,
this one is super fun to me, kinda sweet, kinda gangsta,,, found it here,,,,
a kinda cool, kinda haunting collection i found
she is rad
and of course i love
her aceo cards the very most!!! these top two from here, the bottom one from here, and i gotta admit, i have no idea who that band is {maybe its an artist}, but it sure makes for a cute little piece of art,,, if you ask me ;-D take care today!!!!

Friday, May 22, 2009

im a big fan or art. i am still kicking myself from a few weekends ago when i was in new orleans and i didnt pick up an original from any of the local artists. their talent there was brilliant, beautiful and truly unique. each piece of each collection a reflection and expression of exactly what the artist was feeling in the very moment their brush hit that canvas,,, i love it. i have attempted to create a few pieces of art myself, but i gotta admit, im not very good. at all. anyway, i thought it would be fun to share with you a few pieces of art i have around my home,,, the pieces that really make me happy. :-D
these two babies were created my *my* two babies, and they make me very happy. daniel and sofia truly feel as though they, themselves are *true* artists. that makes me happy.and its no secret that im a big fan of miss elsie,,, i collect as many of her originals as my husband allows. one day i will re-create this, and its gonna be amazing,,,,
i *adore* aceo cards. there were more added to the
red velvet shop last night ~ and this is how mine hang around my pad,,,, i mounted them onto fuchsia felt and framed them and they are very happy to be where they are, {yes, they said so}
and sofias bedroom consists of art work {prints} from the black apple. hubbs and i agree that these girls actually kinda look like out little lady,,, :-D
and thats about it,,, for now,,, i have a really fun project coming up,,, and i really, really, really, want YOU to be a part of it,,, yep,,, YOU!!!! cant wait to share more!!!!! oh, and *yes* my internet is down still,,, i feel really bad for not participating very much in the 52 sketches 52 weeks group, {im using computers where i can} and my images for those sketches are home,,, {yuck},,, gotta love country living,,,,
ohhh,, annnndddd can i get a *heck yeah* on our new american idol?? i know adam rocked, but kris was amazing to me,,, so glad he won ;-D {dont bash me if you feel differently, we all have our own opinion,,,,} ;-D
oh ~ something else, else,,,, i had two kits left in my etsy shop {paper and embellishments packs} they are getting ready to expire, so i slashed the price in half,,, just in case youre interested,,,,
okay, im going now,,, for real, for real,,,, ;-D
