Family Togetherness!

Had all my kids in one place at one time.  THAT NEVER HAPPENS!  Took total advantage of the moment.
Sure hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving.

New page in my Scrappy HeART journal.  I'm really missing Walnut Creek.  I just wish my stars would align and I could magically be transported there to live out the rest of my life.  Here is my page with that in mind:
The house is fabric.  I rarely use just paint, but I wanted simpleness for this page.  Background is simply water color.

Fabric Postcards

Cloth, Paper, Scissors has a reader challenge for fabric postcards.  It intrigued me so I copied 2 original pieces onto fabric and went from there.  Here is the result...

Scrappy HeART Journal page

The base for this is a library card.  Not too thrilled with the pea green...

New Altered Envelope

I think I had a desperate need for the ocean today.  Growing up extremely close to the beach really impacted my life.  If I could pick anywhere on the earth to live, it would be in a beach house.  Either coast; I'm not picky~LOL!

I would have journaled sooner, but we had a Nor'easter on Oct. 28th that took out power in most of CT.  We went for 7 days without it.  Now, it wouldn't have been so bad if we were on city water and natural gas.  But nooooooooooooo!  We have a well and septic (which run on electric) and an electric stove.  And it got COLD.  However, we did fair better than most:  we had a generator which allowed us to run our pellet stove for heat, hook up our fridge and our freezer, and most importantly, run the TV and DVD player.

My studio is in the basement and there is no natural light down there.  I spent the week making jewelry and will post that as soon as I can.

Here is my ode to the storm:
Stay warm, peeps!
