I'm looking forward to shopping today! We have a mall, Washington Square, that is close to where I live. It's my favorite place to meet friends and hang out. The boys need sweat shirts so I will try to find "cool" jackets for them. Yikes, what's cool anymore? :)

|Butterfly Map Cut Out|
|Step one: Sketch and ink in the butterfly. Use permanent ink.|
|Step Two: Color in the butterfly with ink and nail polish for sparkle.|
Step Three: Cut out the butterfly with a knife. More map critters today. I hope to use them in the gallery paintings I need to finish. I'm suppose to have all new work ready....like.....yesterday! Help! ;) I have some ideas for new pieces but I've been busy with my card making site so I'm way behind.
Okay! So! If you guys visit the site and comment on the post at the top of the page or the ice cream cone card post I will make sure you are entered into the giveaway. $20 gift card to Moonstruck Chocolate. Yum!
Hugs and Happy Paint Party Friday!

Little mouse collage piece. I have this cool pocket map book, it's about ten years old. I found it at a used book store in Beaverton, Oregon. The book store is soooo neat! It's located in an old house across from a little park with fountains and giant gorgeous library...sort of a historic looking area. After some renovations the park is the heart of Beaverton. The Saturday Market and Wednesday farmers market happen in that park. Also the movies in the park during the summer. Lucky for Paul and I the church we were married in is also right in that same area. They even planted a tree with a plaque the same year we got married in the park. NOT because of us but still it seems like it to us!
As my Mom would say right now, "It's not always all about you!" What? No way!
I've been creating little collage pieces for some painting ideas I have stuck in my head.
I'm also really excited about the card making site I've been working on.
