SSR June is LIVE!

June edition of SS Reflections is live. In case you want to visit. It's free to get the newsletter and the ezine. This is one of my designer challenges. this month's challenge was from Pennywise Arts. We used their microbeads. I'm not much for playing with tiny little beads, but I have to admit, by the time I got done with all three of my pieces, I was enjoying them. On this box, if you click on it and make it big, you'll see the beads are around the edge of the box and on the bird and flower.

Another of my designer challenge pieces. This one is beaded on the entire image piece. I love this little girl. She's from TAC's Twinkle Toes stamp set. Isn't she precious?

I'm in the middle of a big collage piece that is almost done. It's taken me two weeks to get the idea out of my head, and then of course, there is the painting, gluing, drying, arranging, rearranging. You get the picture! Hopefully by next weekend I can show it off. I really think it's going to be cool. I've never really done anything like this, so we'll see.

Things here are quiet. In laws are well, kids are well, I'm well but have just discovered I'm getting old. I hurt myself sitting down a few weeks ago. Yes, you read that right. I hurt myself. Sitting down. And then I got a Wii Fit and hurt myself doing the hula hoop. I can finally do the Wii without a lot of pain. Thank goodness! But I realized I'm not 26. In my head, that's how old I am. 26. Mentally, I'm 12, but in my mind's image of myself, I'm 26 years old and my body is now telling me "No you're not". It's also sticking its tongue out at me.
