Mixed Media Mondays - Sunshine Dance Girls

This is my submission for MMM. The theme is dance and I ran across this picture of these little girls who look like they are about to perform a dance routine.
We are headed to visit my hubby's sister in Colorado for the holiday. So, I will be gone for a while. Hopefully, I can get some really good pics while we are there. I have only been once and that was way back in college. I just remember that it smelled good there.

Finally finished something

Yeah, I finally got a canvas done today. I am so tickled to finally get something finished. Lately, I have started several things and just not finished them. I ordered some new paints and was eager to get them open and used. I think sometimes it is easy to get bogged down with a rut. This is a 6" by 6" cradled canvas. I will be listing it on my etsy site.

Anyway, the summer is going pretty good. I did start a schedule for the kids which has been great for them and more of a challenge for me. I am just not a schedule girl. But to see how well the kids do on a schedule helps me. It is starting to get REALLY hot here in Texas which means no time outside which I don't like. And time is starting to count down to the Italy trip. I am so excited and almost ready to go. I plan on taking a ton of pics.

Needle felted cell phone case

I have decided to explore some different mediums until I find my muse again. I always forget that when I do this blah thing, it is good for me to just dive in and start playing with different stuff until I find what directions I want to do in.
For this cute little cell phone case I pulled out all of my roving and my needle felting machine. It was so fun to make. As you can imagine it is only about 2 1-2" by approximately 4 1-2". I think it will look dandy hanging on my purse. It is so my colors!

Banner for my little one

I have found myself increasingly uncreative lately. I am not sure why. At first I contributed it to being gone for a week and out of my rountine. Now, I am not so sure. So, I have decided to switch gears and do something different. Two years ago I saved up and got an embroidery machine. I use it extensively during the holiday season for teacher's gift and such. I have had so many ideas running around in my head. Stuff to do for the kid's rooms and clothing. So, this is my first change in course. I created a banner for Alexis' room using some scrap fabric that I had laying around. Then I streamed it over her window valance. She was so excited about it. I think I need to center it a little better but, I was just too excited to see it up and take a pic. I am anxiously awaiting the final name for our new little neighbor so, I can make one for him too (hint, hint Dambers).

Mixed Media Mondays - Bingo

Well, I thought that I would be crazy busy with the kids home and I was right. But among the chaos though , I have had the chance to host Mixed Media Mondays. I have chosen the theme Bingo. I figured it was pretty open for interpretation. I can't wait to see what everyone does. And thanks Diane. You are a sweetie and a pleasure to talk to!
