I am making so many gifts right now and I can not show them so I thought that I would give you a better picture of the Mermaids I made months ago. The last pic was horrible. They are made into two Kippered Snacks cans. At the end of December or early January I will show all the art gifts I have made for friends and family.

I so wanted to get a away from it all. I love my grandchildren and my children but I also needed a little time with my Honey. We spent three days and two nights at a wonderful ski Resort. The town is very artsy fartsy. We love to see all the new art displays. My favorite art show was a show called "DETOUR ART". It was just the kind of art that I love. It is mostly people from across the country that made art to be happy. Usually outside stuff or basement stuff. It was amazing. I hope you will all check out the website. To me, it was so inspiring.
I used an old little wooden box that my sister gave me long time ago to make a little art journal of my little trip. I glued long strips of water color paper together and painted it with water color and then started journaling. The cover had some old comic type characters on it. I used some of the local brochures and glued them to pieces of chipboard and made a funny structure. Then I put Liquid Pearl Satin Glaze over it all and glued a piece of an old shoe tie to wrap around the box to keep all the contents inside.

I can not just work on one project at a time. I have about 30 or more different projects and books in my art room that I am working on. I like to go back and forth with projects because my creative flow is much better this way. I will eventually finish this one as well. I like to fill all the pages of my altered books. I like to put an index somewhere in my books as well. Like many right brainers, I rarely start at the beginning. I am always jumping around in the books and adding randomly.

before but more other artists enjoy seeing the crazy art room spaces of other artists
really messy. I love all the shelves and drawers in this room filled with weird things for all sorts of art
My sizzix area to the right and my small item boxes to the left.
More crazy drawers and containers full of things
This is an overpaint picture of my grand daughter. It was so fun to make. My children
have requested art to hang in their homes this year.
This is not the art room. But it looks like it should be. My honey helped my sort thru all of the magnetic crazy letters to cover my fridge with the family names. This was fun. You can
also see where I rotate kid's art that is made for me.
