Hoppin’ Around Today..

I’ve been blog hoppin’ in my jammies since mid-morning today.  It is now about 1:00 pm and I’m thinking it is about time to get dressed in “public” clothes.  As I said in my last post… I love being retired.

Before I get off this pc I wanted to note one of my favorite blogs by mixed media artist, Jane LaFazio… here. While checking out her latest posting, I got interested in ways to use up my fabric stash.  That led me to several YouTube videos (Yup, I’m addicted to YouTube too.) and gave me a lot of inspiration for a future AEDM project.  Now that I have saved that link, I am going to get dressed.  🙂

Getting Inspiration…

Okay, while blog hoppin’ today I was watching for a technique to try during an Art Every Day Month session.  I ended up on a YouTube channel that I had previously subscribed to and found Vivian Keh. Her style really hits home with me. So, I am putting a link to her blog here, so that I can come back to it later for inspiration.  As for right now, I don’t have time to write about anything because I’m still in my nightgown and I have to get dressed for an appointment.  (For what it is worth, it is after 1:00 in the afternoon.   I love being retired.)

Art Every Day Month is November

During my blog hoppin’ today I discovered the blog posting for Art Every Day Month (AEDM) by Leah Piken Kolidas.  I love seeing what other artists create by visiting their blogs; and I am often inspired to experiment with their technique on a creation of my own. I rarely share my creations with others.  And, I need some incentive to create every day.  So….   I’m joining up with the followers of Leah’s blog,  and accepting the challenge for November.  Let’s see how this goes, since I am terrible at blogging regularly.

As for today..  I am still trying to figure out what to do with my wire art trees.  They are sprouting up all over my house….wire trees for blog

I re-visited one of my favorite blogs, which I shared a link to in my first post.  I love her “glitter houses”… although I’m not too sure about having glitter all over my house too.

I do enjoy creating with paper, and miniature paper houses might be just the right setting for wire art trees.  Stay tuned, I might be onto something here.   It may be my creation for the November 1st challenge!

Wednesday at the PC

Not much happening today.  I just learned how to color the background on this blog.  Progress is being made…. bit by bit.  Today I was checking out one of my favorite blogs by Linda Kaiser of The Paper Boutique.  She has made some 3-D box cards that fascinate me.  She uses a Silhouette cutting machine to create the shapes.  I have the Silhouette Cameo, and I’m wondering if I might be able to make a 3-D box card with one of my wire trees (see below) on it.  Hmmmm.  I’ll post some pictures if I come up with something.

Tuesday at the pc….

Yesterday I set up this blog to display some of my favorite blog postings (by other bloggers) and to have a place to start out on my morning bloghoppin’ sessions.  At this time, this particular blog is WIP.  I’ll fix it up later.  Meanwhile, I want to show the blog I discovered this morning. It is done by an artist named June Crawford.  I love what she does. When I figure out how to do it, I’m going to list some of my favorite blogs on a sidebar.
