"No Recipes Here"

I hate cooking, therefore:
This is a recipe free zone.
In fact I almost named this blog,
"No Recipes Here".
So why do I have these photos of food?
I found this on my kitchen counter and it was clear that I needed to share it. After all it was even labeled.

This creative center piece was brought to you by, Material Girl.
I'm still attempting to purge therefore nothing creative is being done at this time. Grrrrr.....

Time to move on out....

It's time for summer purging.

There are somethings in life that you acquire and later have no idea how they snuck in.

The problem for me is once they have hidden in my house they are hard to cut loose.

So, good bye to my singing bass.

Good bye to my lava lamp (s).

Burbank Baby turned...Action Hero?

When you say to your 25 year old daughter,
"What would you like to be when you grow up?"

You don't expect to hear the words,

" Action hero!"

I do see a resemblance.
Don't you?

Felted clothing

I love how God's creation can become a point of inspiration.

These rose scarfs are by Jenne Giles of Harlequin Feltworks.

These beautiful pieces of art were created by Katelyn Aslett.

Our Trip to San Antonio, Texas

Here's an overview of our trip this last week.

(Note the "wing man" assigned to Hubbie to watch his back.
Not just any military personal, that is a Lieutenant Colonel! You never know when someone might sneak up from behind.)

I'll be gone for a week

What I love about blog buddies.
You ask for one, they send you six!

These charms are from Miss Viv out on a whim.

Vivian was a RED Art Project artist.
She has been creating the cutest, tiny felted, critters and will teach you how to "paint your kitty into a blob" .


It's time again for the

This is so much fun. Hubbie and I participated for the first time this last year.

We're going to do it again. There is still plenty of time to sign up.
Lucy does such a great job putting this all together.
You can order it finished up or in a CD format that you take to your local copy store. It's laid out perfectly and takes them about 5 minutes to print it and spiral bind.

I did mine with a print of my fiber art under a clear vinyl cover. We also used some of Hubbies art and Material Girls photos for the other covers.

The tabs I added, to find the months quickly since I use mine as my daily planner.


Well, I'm off to Texas for the

"Child Safe, Hope and Healing for Sexually Abused Children" fundraiser.

Hubbie is a featured artist at the event.

The word is it's 98 degrees with 62% humidity in San Antonio!



One last silly before I leave,

The cast of characters:

Burbank Baby: My Daughter

Fellow Employee: Someone who my daughter works with

Dog: A very large white Bull dog

Husband: Someone in need of a wife

Burbank baby gets a phone call from a fellow employee.

"Can you come into work and cover my shift immediately. I have a family emergency. My husband called and said he just threw up on the dog and the dog is cowering in the corner. He doesn't know what to do. I told him to go to bed and I would come home and take care of everything."

Oh, what would the world be like without women?

Nicole Scissorhands waved her fingers upon my head yesterday!
Since Hubbie took the camera you'll just have to take my word...
I now look great!
Therefore, please disregard the "look" in the previous post.

What a Day

OK, so this is how the day went down. I plan for a month to go to Art, Paper and Pleasantries with Ferrini Gal on May 1, a Friday.

The night before I go on-line to check for directions.
It's Saturday and Sunday!
Call Ferrini Gal and change the day.
Get up Saturday morning in the rain, pick up Ferrini Gal, get a coffee, head out of town. First stop Danville....Gardenseed (post below), Polka Dot Attic, and the cute interior shop across the street that Connie Govea Stuart has her work in.
Off to the next stop.... American Harvest in Pleasanton.
Then to the Zne Convention.
What a great day!

All kinds of great vendors are there including Coleen Moody.
Here is her sweet Marie doll that was featured Somersets, Marie Antoinette magazine.

Iva Wilcox had the booth right next to her and her Marie art too, was featured in the Somerset magazine.

Then I gaze across the room and who do I see?
Lissa Kettell all the way out from New Jersey with her Mom!
Lisa was one of the RED Art project artists.

Do you know how excited I was to get to meet her? Well, just know that even with bad hair (remember it was a rainy day) and the deer in the headlights gaze I am still going to show off my photo!

And guess who else I got to meet. Ruth Ray!

Ruth is the cover artist for the new Magazine Art Quilting Studio.

After we were thoroughly on sensory overload we took one last stop in Dublin, to see Gina Gabriell's shop, Tangerine.

This is one of Gina's Music box dolls that she taught how to create at the convention as well as at her shop.
I'm lusting after it!

What a day!
Stopped at Starbucks, bought a coffee and headed home.
Slept for the next two days!
Woke up.
Posted this blog.
Called hair dresser and made an appointment to get hair done!
