I have done a few things I'll share here, and if you want more,
Here is a sneak peek at a project I am doing with my very best friend, to celebrate the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
A combination of both Anne's and my painting, with digital work.
Thanks for coming by. Best wishes to all my cyber friends. (You know who you are)

ATC challenges are what I cut my "mixed-media-teeth" on. (I know that was very poor sentence structure, but oh well...) It's a great way to learn and try out new techniques and media and we share our trials and errors, learning something every time!
Yes, I have been doing a lot of creative work, but it's been more directed toward real life and not what I'd share on line. However, still participating in a few swap challenges, so you can visit my Flickr spot if you like.
I appreciate your stopping by my bloggy place. Thanks for looking.

No, I'm not doing much artwork or writing, been outside doing the Spring yardwork, moving furniture, Spring cleaning, etc. But here is something I completed recently for a fun Flickr group.
Perhaps you will find a use for some of the images?

I did something different with Collage Play with Crowabout, this week. While I usually try to use as many of the images as I can, I used only the minimum (3) this week, added a couple of my own and put it all on a background from my friend, John.
It's All Digital. I loved the image of the woman and the building -- and the era they represented. Found the record labels and included the flowers
just to be legal for the prize drawing.
Thanks for coming 'round to look at my stuff!

The subject of this one is "Sorry", in which each artist produces a flock of (no larger than) 3 x 3" works that depict things we are sorry about. A cleansing process, we hope.
See more about the project HERE.
Each entrant may produce as many as 15 pieces. (Don't know if I'm THAT sorry). And each is promised at least one piece in the book that will be published.
Entrance fee is only $5.00 for this one. Here's an opportunity you might not want to miss!
This is about wasted years of partially-formed dreams.

First -- I got a part time job and really threw myself into it. Thought it would be the dream job of all time for someone like me, a bibliophile. A book store job, no less. I joined with a crew to bring the store into existence, working my you-know-what off and doing things I didn't even know I could do. We put together the entire store - 6000 sq. ft. of shelves filled with books and opened in early December. I was ecstatic.
Imagine my disappointment when, working in close quarters with her, I found out that the manager was an awful bully who took personal delight in invalidating those around her. She took a particular dislike to 'moi', going quite out of her way to pick apart every thing I did.
I bit my tongue and hoped for the best for a very long 2 months until I finally had the bad manners to respond to one of her humiliating tirades with a very tiny one of my own. She fired me. And I am still really mad about it!
But I'm relieved that I don't have to come home each day upset and bummed out. What appeared to be my dream job was a nightmare in disguise. I really learned a lot about retail and book selling in particular, though, and made two very good friends who worked with me.
I guess it's a colorful addition to my CV. I was never fired before! Hey, people, it's never to late to experience something new!
So the Captain and I got busy right away on a cottage industry project. We are making these.
We order our supplies from the company who holds the patent and make them according to their strict standards. They buy them from us, but we are free to find other markets and sell them ourselves. I have one local store carrying them and have a lot more inquiries to make. And we are definitely having fun. There's a little link at the top of this page where you can find out more about these.
Thanks for visiting me today.
