WHOLE HOUSE PURGE

Monday, April 20, 2015

I have been absent for a while due to a number of factors. The first being I have been sick with Epstein Barr, a sinus infection/cold and just can't seem to get rid of either one.  When I have an episode of EBV I have no ability to create.  It is stifles my creative mojo.  So instead I try to catch up on other projects.  My project/goal for this year is to do a whole house purge.  I read "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing" and was very inspired.  I started in our master bedroom closet and that took almost a week but it is done.  I then tackled the guest bedroom closet and that was major as it has stuff that belongs to the kids (all adults and long gone from the house), our stuff, storage stuff.  You get the idea.  That took 5 days and I just finished. So far,I have made 4 trips with the car full of stuff to donate.  I found a HUGE, I mean HUGE stash of needlepoint yarn which I need to sell on ebay and have just started listing.  If you need any, I probably have it!  So my creative space is a mess as you can imagine and I can't start any projects till I get some of this stuff OUT OF HERE!  Hope to be back soon with cards and coloring.

5 MINUTE QUICKIE COLORING FOR 30 DAY COLORING CHALLENGE #ATTHEDAILYMARKER30DAY

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

I was sending my sister a check and I always like to put it in a cute card but I really only had about 7 minutes so I quick stamped and colored this one layer card.  Used HERO ARTS OWH LIL HOOT and Copics.  Sentiment not a great stamping job but I was really rushing and I know she won't care.

MAKE IT CRAFTY SPOTLIGHT COLORING CHALLENGE

An almost spectacular fail.  Wow, this was really a hard challenge.  Didn't quite get the elipse shape of the spotlight and my beam wasn't quite lined up.  Will have to try this again.
Also, how do you get the shadow shapes correct???  I also noticed that as soon as I upload I see things that I don't when I am looking at the original.  I should have put another white highlight on the right extended foot.  More practice needed but I am committed to posting my learning processes and not just what I am happy with.

I flew home from NY on Saturday so obviously didn't get any coloring done and then I was jet lagged and just plain exhausted.  Yesterday I was functional enough to finish coloring the Make it Crafty lilies that I started in NY and finished the card this am.

30 DAY COLORING CHALLENGE #thedailymarker30day

Friday, March 6, 2015

Today is my last day in NY with my sister and I am quite sad to leave her but glad to get home to my hubby.  In the midst of getting her resettled and packing, I took  break and began to color this wonderful Make It Crafty digi.  Zoe, I just love all these flower stamps!  It is far from finished but I may get to work on it on my 5 hr. flight home tomorrow.  Here is my coloring for today.

Copics used so far: E000, 35, 77:  RV 10,11,13: YR24:  YG07,45,63,67

30 DAY COLORING CHALLENGE DAY 2: #thedailymarker30day

Thursday, March 5, 2015

Brrr, it is snowy and cold on Long Island today so staying in (the hotel room) is just fine.  One of the images I brought with me to color is this adorable Mo Manning digi printed on Xpress it paper.  I thought I had more skin and hair colors with me .. but nope, I don't so here is my attempt with my limited supplies on hand.  Left the little flowers uncolored so I can add some white and wink of stella when I get home.

                                      

By the way, I am completely inept at blogging on my ipad. Can't figure out how to size photoes and a bunch of other problems.

30 DAY COLORING CHALLENGE #thedailymarker30day.

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

I am so happy when I am coloring so I am thrilled to bitty wits about this 30 day coloring challenge. Unfortunately, I am out of town BUT, I did bring watercolors (Peerless), 72 Copics, and some prestamped and printed images.  Woohoo, I even remembered my magnifying glasses! I am posting using only my ipad so it is a little tricky and I have done no editing. This is my image for today in watercolors.
