I'm shipping up to Boston this week. The shop is closed for vacay until next sunday. I've never been out east before so this should be fun.

My collage

After decoupaging a display for my kiddo's history fair, I got the itch to make one using my own paintings.

I used a cotton rag paper because I thought it would be sturdier under the mod podge. So, whatcha think?

Gilles may have lost on DWTS but Kris Allen is the new American Idol. Two years in a row, we got it right. Loves it.

more pendants

it's a lousy pic but it's all gray and rainy here...for days and days. Hub says that my work is better when it's smaller.

Stupid sealants

Okay, how does one use Diamond Glaze without getting annoying and jewelry ruining bubbles?! I don't shake it. I keep the tip submerged. I used a space heater to keep the humidity low. I don't know what else to do. I'd hate to go back to using resin. It's just so toxic. Is there something better? Or can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

On a Green Morning

Another stop on my little japanese imagery tour is On a Green Morning. I'm thinking that I might turn this series into post cards.
Does anyone still use post cards?

Kris Allen's pre-Idol music

Kris Allen self-produced a cd back in college called Brand New Shoes. Honestly, I kind of love it.
The intrepid Rickey at has some of the cuts for your listening pleasure.
GO KRIS! Save the hawtness, save my Tuesdays.
