Passions of an Odd Chick

Animals Gone Wild

Thank you all for your encouragement regarding my last little odd painting. Nothing quite as magical as that has happened again even though I've tried to re-create that mystical experience, but it did spur a highly-creative period for me. I'm trying to enjoy different color palettes and techniques and continue to be loosey-goosey in my expectations and let things happen as they may.

Remember these fun little images. Well, I followed through and made some cards out of them and tried new techniques that included sewing and collaging.

So much fun!!

There is no way to fail using these messy and shabby chic ideas.

And I'll leave you with another little odd animal painting although it slightly resembles me and Sweet Farmer on a Sunday afternoon. We feel like snuggly, big, lazy blobs sometimes.

A quick thank-you to Kre8iveLife
for a sweet blog award. I don't really like the crazy roundy-rounds of blog awards but I do TRULY appreciate it when you think of me. I loved looking at the other blog friends that she included in the award and you will too.
My list would include all those listed to the right of my blog and all my followers. They constantly inspire me everyday- and that's the honest truth.
5 things I love:
walking on the farm
hearing my son sing
watching my daughter sew
my kitchen bar messy with art supplies

Congrats on your blog award! I'm glad I'm not the only one with a kitchen bar full of art supplies! I just love your puppies. They are so adorable. And your cards are amazing. Love everything.

Ah, thank you so much for your sweet comment today on my blog post. It blessed my heart really big! It is special how even over long distance God can give you a close at heart friend.

Hey I love your sewing idea across your art work. I'll have to try that.

Smiles across the miles,

O.C., Your comment on my artwork really made my day brighter. (You know the kind of "down" day you have when nothing seems right about yourself?)
I just needed a hug, and you gave it to me...
Thanks so much, Sweet Friend!
