Me and My Girl

Found this picture of me and Anna while cleaning out a couple "organizers" for my studio. This was taken in the summer of 1989 in downtown Minneapolis. Anna is about ten months old, I am about thirty. This was probably taken in a photo booth in the Crystal Court of the IDS Center, or somewhere close to that. I wore bandana "sweatbands" quite often in those days.

Valentine ACEOs on Etsy

I put some Valentine-themed ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals), 2.5"x3.5", for sale on Etsy. They are all originals, with tiny hand-stitched and hand-beaded paper-fabric hearts.

They are in the same series at the ATCs in my previous post. I think they'd make great little Valentine's Day gifts, a little piece of "art" to slip into a card or a bouquet of flowers.

I am a girly-girl!

This is Emma, my grand-niece, at Christmas. I bought her a foofy-girly-pink tutu and fairy princess outfit for Christmas, and she was all over it!

I must've caught the girly-girl thing from her, because all I've been doing is pink, hearts and flowers. A bit of February/Valentine's Day cabin fever, and a Valentine themed ATC swap.

The following is based on a template downloaded from Belinda Schneider's blog (the gothic arch), thought I'd have a little fun with this. I just got Beryl Taylor's book "Mixed Media Explorations," and I love what she does with fabric and embellishments, so there's some of that in there too.
