Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. I don't really buy into the whole shopping craziness. Today, though, is known as Cyber Monday and I thought it would make a good subject for today's project. While I don't at all condone the aforesaid shopping craziness, I hope that if that's what you are into, you consider supporting your local businesses or buying something unique and handmade from any one of millions of creative artisans at Etsy.com. This is part of a screen shot of my shop with a special temporary banner for today.

I've had these sheets of sticky-back felt in my drawer for months maybe. Today, they finally saw the light of day and were made into a project. Originally, I wanted to print a template for the letters, but my printer wouldn't let me on account of the magenta being out. This printer goes through ink like I go though cookies, I tell you! Then, removing the product labels made the felt fuzzy so I ended up with making a 4x6 inch project. I'm not even sure what it is exactly, but I'm going with coaster...

Day 323... 43 days left! Can you believe that? Anyway, I went by the book again today (imagine that) and it suggests working with music media (CDs, etc.) I doodled with permanent marker on this blank CD which, hopefully, will soon be home to my "Feel Good Mix" once I can gather together a collection of songs that brighten my mood. Hope this Sunday finds you well. Thanks for checking in today!

Today, the book suggests making a diagram for something that usually doesn't need one. This is my version and the directions are as follows:
1. Take old blankets to animal shelters.
2. Make dogs and cats happy and comfy.

You can now add a can of corn to list of materials I've worked with this year. That's due to the fact that at this time of year, different organizations are banding together to put on food drives so more people can have a real Thanksgiving dinner. So God bless all the people throughout our region who were out in the cold all day today gathering food and donations.

I hope everyone had a good day today. I was able to go to the arts and crafts store and get some more ATC cards. Then, I had dinner with friends. When I got home, I had to figure out what to do for my project today. I took a textured ATC card, some tissue paper from a gift bag, and the inside of the envelope for a credit card offer I got in the mail today and made this. Enjoy and have a great night.

Tomorrow, for all my American friends, is Election Day, of course. It's a day to celebrate the right to vote that so many worked and died for. So, I say we all put on a big boy/girl pants on and not only do our civil duty, but be grown-ups about it. The world needs love and civil discussions, not mud-slinging. The thing about mud-slinging is we all end up dirty and unhappy. So mark your calendars... (end political rant.)

It's that time of year. Dad's in the kitchen peeling apples and creating his annual batch of apple/pear sauce. Later, I get one of my other favorite things: Mom's Apple Crisp! I got some of the apples that went through the peeler and turned my snack into art.
It's also that time of year when I get a slew of people posting to my Facebook wishing me a happy birthday and I'm grateful for each and every one of them. I feel truly blessed to have so many awesome people in my life that post, call, or buy me my favorite cake. Love you all!!
