Card-U R So Invited!

Good morning,

The card for today is: U R So Invited! I still have a lot of MY favorite black and white, but with a burst of color mixed in.

Reading tidbit for today:
As we get older, we tend to get arthritis in our joints. I know this to be true personally.

70% of us can supposedly get relief, just by eating 20 gin-soaked GOLDEN raisins every day for one month; and then just 9 every day after that! Wow! Sounds yummy to me! And fairly easy. Just remember to prepare your raisins ahead of time and store them an air-tight container in the fridge.

Pour gin to just cover raisins. Let soak till the gin evaporates (several weeks), and store.

You can find this tip in Woman's World, 9/12/11, page 16: NATURAL HEALTH-No more aches and pains! Read it ... to learn more!

Have a great day!

Cj ... (I hope to begin posting again today; starting with Sept. 1st!) Enjoy!

Time Stands Still ... in lots of areas for me right now

Good morning,

I am off this week, and I am playing with a different creation angle. This design above is for a future birthday card front. It takes a little more time, play, and thought, but I like it.

This is a closeup of the next card front. I don't have a specific use for it yet, but I love how it feels. While I DO love color, I've always been very drawn to black and white and shades in between, and this one just fits the bill for me. I just love it!

And last ... the completed design for this card front. Don't know how I'm using it yet ... but I will use it! How would you show it off?

My drivers for my sound card are gone on my computer! Darn. I had tried to post a video (for family) on my website yesterday, only to find I had no sound. I thought it was my program, but alas, while doing some research today on my drawing endeavors, I tried to view a video; only to find that again! There was no sound. A quick peek from my husband revealed the problem. And, I lost a monitor two days ago, and my husband replaced it with another one he had stored.

I use dual screens at home and at work. It is so much easier to research while working.

Most of this week's weather has been totally blah! Cloudy, rain off and on, and just plain ugh!!! Makes me NOT want to go out.

I'd love some feedback on my new designs! What do you think?

Have a terrific day!!!

August and September Graphics

Good afternoon,

One more post featuring a few items I've done in the last month and a half. This one is from September and was done yesterday, I believe.

It's a card front.

I still enoy creating my own fantasty cartoons, and here is Frederick; mild mannered Frederick. Good for another card.

This is a Cosmic Blob character named Libby. I've shown you some abbreviated steps in creating her. And then again, Frederick, with bigger feet and a different face. His left hand could be holding a spear.

This final creation is from August, and it's a story creation. This actually happened to me one night on the way home from work. Before I totally forgot about it, I decided to capture the memory in a journal block.

Enjoying the process ... as always.

New things-New Perspective: Direction changing!

Good afternoon,

It's been awhile ... I know. I have not kept up with my website, and don't even know at this point whether I will continue with it.

Between work, and all the things I enjoy doing, it gets all kind of over-whelming, and I don't even know how many people really even look at it or use it.

Today's blog is featuring some new things I'm doing. The above frame is very pretty, I think. To see just a few of the items that went into this creation, see the next picture.

This pictures features just a few of the 36 items I created as individual items that I then put together to complete a finished creation, such as the first picture.

Since I've started zentangling, I'm looking at my artwork in a totally new way. I like the road I'm traveling right now. It's a totally new perspective on my idea of creating ... and I'm loving it.

I used another version of this creation in a framework for a 50th wedding anniversary picture I just did for a family member. It's basically the first picture, but a little MORE ... and one done with a black background, and another with a white background.

There's been nothing new posted in over a month at Easy As Pie Daily Graphics. Still thinking about the direction I am going.

Until I know more ... I'll be posting here at the blog, and sharing some of my journey. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
