And the winner is......

Hey all!
Hope you had a great week...
Summer is winding down here
and I have to say I am ready
for Fall.
Humidity is not my friend
and I can't wait for school to start.
I'm not so great at being the sole entertainer here...

It has been good though.
I just want to be able to breathe when I go outdoors!
I've also stayed away from estate sales, etc.
because of the heat...

So let's get on with it...
My winner for the surprise
is Angi!

Please e-mail me your address girl!

 I also have to admit I have started a 2nd blog...
I really started it because it fits into a totally seperate
I'm part of a FaceBook group that just 
shares so much and I always had a story or a tid bit
and I thought - this needs it's own space.

I know my readers here are more interested in Art and Creative living
I'm going to give the link to the blog if you are interested
but the blog is focused on
the evolution of the music and artists that came out 
Seattle in the late 80's early 90's
and is still going on today.
So many new fans being born and they are
just totally blind as to what the whole scene was 
REALLY about.
I hate that the media turned the whole
"grunge" thing into something that it wasn't.
Long story - but I thought I would share it here once.
I'm focusing on my memories,
stories from the bands,
the artwork that was produced
and really dissecting some of the music.
Also a photography spot every week 
from fans..
and a weekly look at a book written in 1889 
that inspired work by Pearl Jam.
Right? Who knew those "angst ridden white male slackers"
actually had brains and used them.
(total sarcasm here)
I am very excited because my FB community has really stepped up
and in under 2 weeks I have had 500 + views.

Here is the link if you are interested...
Here are a few art projects I have been working on...

 This guy is part of a T-Shirt design...
He's a water bottle...long story...

 A very unfinished page...
but having fun with the concept.
I have got to start using something other than ModPodge
because in this kind of journal those little
paper snippets can get stuck and tear.
Even after drying for days.
I was really bummed when this happened.
Pretty much all of Melody Ross books are done this way
and when she opens them you hear them crinkling
but I  don't want to spend all this time only to later have the pages
stick together and ruined.

Hope you guys are having a great week
and Angi get me that address!

Happy Tuesday everyone!
