This is a page in one of my art journals.  I feel like I need to name the journals so I can say which one and you will go “Ahh, that one.”  LOL

Practicing faces on a small yellow note padPracticing faces on a small yellow note pad

I was practicing a face while I was watching someones video on u tube.  I used a little yellow note pad that was sitting on the computer desk and some colored pencils.  I was just practicing my pencil skills and wasn’t really going to use it in a journal because the paper isn’t very suitable for gluing, but I liked her too much to throw her away.  You can’t tell in this photo how much she is wrinkled.

This collage page was done in my hand made coptic stitch  journal.  It has craft paper, acrylic paint, die cuts and a beautiful art work done by Victoria David Danann.

I put down some acrylic paint.  Then collaged craft paper .  I accented some of the flowers already on the paper using a purple metallic pen.  I love circles, so had to add circles and other accents with the silver metallic pen.

Used art work called Ruffling Feathers from 2008 planner

Victoria David Danann’s art work clipped from the 2008 Weekly Planner.  Just love it!  Added some die cuts from a K&C Company collection.

My Life Update

My daughter put an offer on a house and the waiting for it to be accepted was awful!  Now it has been accepted!!  Yahhh!  And we wait some more.  We have to wait for the inspection and the appraisal to be done.  The house was built in 1955 so we are having a complete inspection done to be sure there isn’t anything major wrong with it that we can’t see.  That could be as soon as tomorrow, but we aren’t sure yet.   I will go out to the house when the inspection is being done and measure the rooms and take photos.

Then the lender is scheduling an appraisal before they will make the loan.  This is the big one, because if it doesn’t appraise for enough, we won’t be able to get the loan.  The realtor seems to think it will be fine, but I’m a worrier,  so I won’t feel better till it is done.  When I know everything is going OK, I will post pictures of the house.

Send us lots of good thoughts, and light, and luck.
