bingo {collaged}


a little art therapy in the form of a vintage bingo card and some paint covered fingers.

doesn't it feel good to cut paper?.....jagged cut, sure. sharp cornered edge, maybe. flat side, probably. 

imperfect circle happiness.

and then, sewn. 

sewing. (aaaaah. again...happiness)

with pink thread.

except......look closely.....at the book paper and the words. 

omg.....really?! that was what i seriously cut out? AND glued down?


dang it.

happy monday to you.

perfectly imperfect {she would be}


i had an idea that i thought would work (seemed good in my head anyway)....but the reality was that it didn't work at all. 

at all.

she would be perfectly imperfect.

may your weekend be filled with the perfectly imperfect.

community {painted rocks}


my little community has been organizing a kindness rocks- positive messages group on FB. i joined and couldn't wait to paint my rocks. 

i dug around and found my rocks in my front yard around my flowers.

most had a flat top and interesting shape. i tried to find a variety of shapes to paint.

i used acrylic paint, gold ink, stencils and stamps to make mine; finished with a fixative spray to seal.

here is a little video to show my finished rocks:



may this brighten your day.

happy monday.
