Uhh...sorry I've been MIA, my friends! So, I think I had more time to blog when I was busy with all those jobs. hah...=) Just kidding - just been laying low. Catching up a little.
Anyways...the weekend (long, long, ago now) rocked! The weather here's been quite horrible and November-like...yuck! So that part of it wasn't great, but on Saturday I had a lovely pedicure and relaxed for a few hours there, lounged around at home with hubby, and then we went out for dinner with some animator-types for our friends' birthday at a yummy Singaporian place. We went to this amazing little somebody's-cozy-basement-like bar and had spicy bourbon drinks and played drinking games and hung out with a man in a pig costume that night, too...and then we all sleepily rolled out of bed a few wee hours later and hopped on a bus that took us all the way to the ferry which then took us to lovely little Bowen Island. Yay! A cute little teeny island town full of old houses turned into grocery stores ans restaurants and galleries. So great! There was much sitting around, drinking beer, eating fish and chips. Admiring the ocean. Wind in our hair. Listening to the lovely symphony we went there to see. Ahhh....
The other day I finally got a chance to scrap with my May Dozens' kit - I was feeling waaaay rusty! My hands just weren't getting out what my brain sees - hate that feeling, don't you? The first page here is the only one I really, really like..Argh. Gotta get back into the groove: It was inspired by an Elsie page in her Recipe Box Book...omigosh...I'm stuck to that thing, it rocks!! I drew the thought bubble lightly and then used watercolor pencils + lotsa water to paint it pink. It totally made the page lumpy and bumpy - but I'm cool with that. =) I used watercolor pencils (dry and wet) to journal and put black ink over that. More:(I decided on "Gool" for a title - meaning goofy-cool. Cuz there were just no words cool and odd enough to match the picture of us in our 80's shades..he he.)My puppy Bo and I - more like big dog Bo and little Michelle. =) I hand-cut the title around a rough drawing, lightly painted blue, and when it was dry I drew the letters on with a white uniball signo pen (love that pen!) And the crayon-love Wonder Years paper was too perfect for this little pic of me coloring when I was about 5. =) he he...it simply says, "It's always been art." Cuz, well...it has. =)
Currently still rockin out to Kate Nash. Dying to see The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. At work working on making a cat look like see-thru predator-type creature and making lights glow...he he. Loving Rilo Kiley (new cool singer girl I just found at work today). She sounds a little Lisa Loeb-ish (love!). Rockin out to Lisa Loeb still, too...lol. Looking forward to me + Z checking out the Sex and the City movie finally this weekend. Hoping the sun will come out soon. Working on some shop stuff. Abolishing piles of bills, paperwork, and laundry still. Designing shop stuff in my mind as I sit here. Working on a new Sis Digi release....Ah, creating...=)
Oh! And we went for a stroll last night in our park and it seems all the baby raccoons are now on their own looking for food. Hoards of them following us around, poking out of bushes, everywhere! It was funny...lol. Oh! We saw a beaver lounging around, too...we haven't seen one yet - he was huge! he he...Oh, nature.
Thanks for stopping by!! More eye candy by means of scrappiness comin atcha soon!
