This is my last week of vacation from the job, but The Hubbs wants me to work for him and I am reluctant…I am arting up a storm, cleaning and organizing my supplies and basically trying to bring some law and order to the wild wild west that prevails in my half of “The Office” ( I’m really lying, I have 75% of the room but THE HUBBS has a laptop that he is not sharing, so that makes us equal. The previous mess is described on my flickr feed as rearranging deck chairs on my Titanic I am sure it is below. There is a challenge on Scrap your Crap and this weeks challenge was to use beads on your layout…This is my entry…based on a photo that has been on my mind for some time
Maya had this uncanny ability to reflect her emotions like an adult. My great uncle Charles had just said to The Hubbs ” who is this pretty girl here?” when Maya went into diva mode…The Hubbs was trying to “talk her down” but Maya was having NONE of that and refused to hug Uncle for his 96th birthday… The layout is called ” Side eye for the Great Uncle Guy“…He has since passed on, but this photo lives forevah!, LOL!!!
Then there is the challenge with Nancy Baumiller at Something to Crow about. She has started a group for mixed media artists on Flickr. There is a weekly challenge where she posts pictures of items and you interpret them into what ever is your style…here is my contribution…don’t laugh…I live in the third world and Zetti is foreign to all but me and Ihanna, LOL!
…look at this loveliness…
I knew as soon as I saw the mail lady’s face who it was from! Yes, I spared the envelope…I am a lover of mail art and I admire the creative way that people make their statements by arting up the mail..sigh…look at this! go on, click it bigger!
Inside, were these lovlies… a print that I had ordered from Sharon’s Etsy shop. I had admired this lady for a long time and I have finally decided that she needed to come to Sweden for a
visit…I was so happy and surprised! Sharon hosted a napkin swap…you send 5 you receive 5 in return. There are some music and old text pages, too…I thought I had a photo… This was sooo worth waiting for…
