Hello Strangers!

I have been gone for so long I have almost forgotten myself...I had a series of heart problems and surgeries, but all is well now and I am feeling much better. Had to change heart doc's to get results, but I have a fantastic doc now....

Well, something exciting has happened to me and I would like to share it with you guys. I have been asked to be an ongoing contributing writer for Mixed Media Art website! I had submitted an article a few months back, and after my 4 recent heart surgeries, I was clearing out my emails and ran across the wonderfully sweet email from Michelle, asking me if I would be interested in a regular gig! So every couple of months or so I will be a part of the Mixed Media Art website with a new article about mixed media and altered art and altered books. I just hope I don't disappoint.... Have a bit of the case of the nerves, to be honest, but I just need to get busy and stop procrastinating. My first article is due March 6th, so I had better get busy!

Enough about me, I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and have just been happily "arting" your buns off! I have been playing with chalks lately, and have a great set of creamy, metallic chalks that came with applicators that look just like eyeshadow applicators(?), plus you can also use your fingers to smear them around. Adds just a bit of POP to those pages I have been working on like a fiend lately!

Well, it's getting late, and I need my rest, so enough for tonight, but remember-"Happy Creating"!
