Can't wait to go back to the Flea Market

This journal page is about collecting.  I love to collect cool found objects.  Some of my favorite things are vintage charms, old photos, holiday and travel postcards, luggage labels, foreign fabric, ribbons, bottle caps, milk caps, old advertising, & vintage German ornaments.  I like shiny and colorful things.  Maybe I am a raccoon!  To think it all started with something big.  I used to collect quilts, and now most of my treasures are small!

Merry Christmas!

Here are two more journal pages.  I have had some time over the school holiday to try to catch up on my journal adventure.  Only 20 more pages to get caught up!

Cool Things from the Post

I found these wonderful vintage items on Etsy.  Thought I'd share them here.  I love to get mail!!  I can't wait to find cool things to store inside the plaid lunch pail.

More School ATC Cards

Here are more of the ATC cards that go with the School Paper Bag Album.  

School Paper Bag Book

The photos above are my twins.  Bella is wearing a Pioneer costume for Statehood Day that I wore when I was in third grade!

Here is my stepson Chris and the cute girl is my mom as a child.  Her mother was quite a seamstress.
Once again the twins and me as a child.  Love that plaid dress.
The first photo is from my dad's childhood.  Here is my oldest daughter then and now.  Below is my other stepson Paul at Disney World.  I think he looks like a model here.
I LOVE to make paper bag books with a theme and then create ATC cards to fill them.  Here is one I just finished-I had been working on it off and on for over a year; when I was in the mood.  It may be one of my favorites!  Hope you like it.

My Summer Spirit Wild About Art Class

                              Mexican Amate paper jungle scenes and Japanese fish printing.
                                                             Egyptian "mummy" cats
                          and Japanese Carp kites were just a few of our animal inspired projects.
                                    Just wanted to show off some of the cool things the kiddos
                                      in my summer art class are making.  It has been a blast.

Fourth of July Crafts

Finally,  I have finished the pillows and even made a July 4th charm necklace.

Here are the beginnings of two Fourth of July pillows.
Finished photos of the banner and the pillows coming soon.

I have been working away on a Fourth of July Banner.  It was really fun to make.   I embellished it with random things I had on hand- tiny pom pom trim, crocheted flowers, red stripe fabric, sequins, glitter paint, and ribbon.  Next, I am going to work on a pillow.  For being one of my favorite holidays, I can't believe I haven't done this sooner!

Oklahoma-Land of Cowboys and Indians-for real!

A couple weeks ago we were at our local Sonic when we happened upon this situation.  No wonder people still think we are the wild west here!

I guess these three cowboys just had a hankering for some grub.

Summer time and the living is so easy!

One week into summer and loving it here!  But, boy is it hot!  Near 100 again today does not bode well for August.  Here is one of my latest Art Journal pages.  It seems there is a summer theme going on!

New Journal Pages

I am a little behind lately.  School is almost out, baseball season is about over, and now maybe I will have a little more time to create.  Anyway, here are my latest journal pages.  The top page has a photo of my mom sitting on an airplane when she was young.  I always wondered whose plane it was.  Sadly, I will never know.  Ask the questions while your loved ones are still with you!
