Some Exciting News....

It's been a few days since I've posted. A few very hot and unusually humid days! So you know what that means....not much art gone done. Actually not much of anything has been done. I lose my energy in hot weather.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my "imperfect" gal. I think we all need to embrace our own imperfections and be happy with them.

I had an exciting day on Tuesday. I was interviewed for our local Lifestyle magazine! Rich Breault of the Valley Press came to the house and took lots of photos of my art and a couple of me, too. He was very easy to talk with and HB and I enjoyed meeting him. I'm looking forward to the article, and hope that it might generate some interest and get me in touch with some local artists and creative people.

My index cards got a little behind but I caught up today. 
Here are the latest ones:

July 5th - some paper scraps 
and a picture of a seashell from an old book

July 6th - more scraps of paper
and a picture from an old calendar

July 7th - paper scraps and a flower image from a paper kit.

Now I'm off to find a cool spot to curl up with a book. I might make a fruit smoothie for my lunch and that's about all I can plan on doing today. HB has a dental appointment so the afternoon is mine.


  1. I hope you are enjoying your relaxing afternoon! It's hot and humid here, and I hate to keep the girls indoors but it's just too hot for me out there!! Congratulations on the magazine article...very exciting! If there is an online link to it when it comes out, I hope you will share it with us.

    I wish I could send you some of our cooler temps your way. As Winterwood said, we've been having quite a cold snap here this past week.

    Great cards!!

  14. Janet! I knew you were famous!! Congratulations on the upcoming press coverage, this is super exciting. Your fan in germany, tj

  15. In print again, I can hardly wait to see it. Not only has it been very hot but we are in real need of rain, it is so dry we could loose our grass, can not water as some peoples wells are going dry.
    At least you are staying busy with the ICA.

  16. Janet, that is absolutely wonderful! You're famous! ;-)

  17. Congratulations! That is so cool! I hope you'll show us the article. We had only two hot days and I found it difficult to function normally... Smoothie sounds like the right thing on such a warm day.

  18. Hot, humid days can really drain my energy. Hope you had a lovely relaxing afternoon.
    Love your index cards. Great way of using up scraps.
    Can't wait to see a copy of your interview. Well done.
