:: by appointment only ::
We all have come across "seen by appointment only" at least once in our life time. 
As for some, like me... more often than I wish to.  
Wasted time seating in the doctor's office, waiting to be seen. 
If it had been made by choice, then yes... I willfully wait.
Otherwise, let us remember I would rather be any place but here!
Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you 
heals your sick self.

 a trip back to California
 1,500 miles away...  
to see my doctor, visit family, and long to return home to the island.

it's a tag parade...

:: pocket-book display:: 
These incredible tags were created by artist's who participated in our 
swap, hosted by me, in The Studio 
I thought it was appropriate, to create a pocketbook out of a file folder, 
to display these beautiful tags in. 
This project is fun and easy to create. Love how my pocketbook turned out!

True happiness... is not attained through self-gratification, 
but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

exploring recyclable art...

:: soapbox pinwheels ::
think twice before throwing these treasures away!
they are adorable in size, pose as great mini canvases, hold up well under stress,
and are perfect to paint on.

materials needed:
acrylic paints
collage paper scraps
matte medium 
tacky glue 
painter tape 
Exploring is fun!

:: around here ::

Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, 
because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, 
and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.

pockets - paper-dolls - papers

:: journal spread :: 
Lost and found... there is a place for everything here. 
Layers of scrap papers, painted stencils, and a bread bag pocket for a paper dolly. 
This journal page is random, sporadic you may say...I am okay with that. 
Sometimes life is scattered just the same.
enjoy your stay!
