Have You Hugged Your Pet Today?

Here's a picture of Sancho exploring outside the day I was trying out fabric dye/painting. I have several projects in progress and none of them ready to show you. So you get to see my sweet artdog. :)

First though, I want to "Toot my own Horn" as my friend Edz would say. I am so excited that one of my art quilts is published in the next issue of Quilting Arts magazine!! Yay! (Insert Happy Dance here, and y'all join me!)... Page 72 if you are interested... you are, right??!! Having said that, let me get back to the topic at hand. Maybe we'll revist this topic when the actual shock wears off. *grins*

I've got ATC's in progress, a postcard swap winding up (yes Mama Hen Jo, I'm almost finished!), an art doll swap taking shape with my artpal Heather, my inner critic is nagging me and my muse is finding her zen place. Art-zen master Hula-girl Sonja is always keeping me on my toes. Next month I'm going to work on finishing up what I have undone (Girl Undone sounds like an artdoll to me)... and I'm going to squeeze as much art time as I can in between work and a week out of town and my big brother is coming to spend some time with us (he's a hoot!).

I've been trying to wend my way around facebook now and then (sorry Heather I'm a slooooow learner huh?) and mostly hanging out at the new Quilting Arts Community sight: www.quiltingarts.com Have you checked it out yet? There's so much information and new friends and inspiration to be found there. You will be so inspired by the galleries of artwork, and I hope to see yours there soon.

Have you hugged your pet today? If not, take a minute right now and do that. Do it twice. Then get into the art studio even for ten minutes. As I told a friend a little bit ago, a little art does a soul good.

Dance on, Fluttebug girl! I have to try your image transfer process with gesso that you used on the John Lennon piece. Oh, of course this involves buying gesso...LOL

Thank you guys!! It is the best to get to share this with you!!! I loved happy dancing with you guys on your accomplishments and now you dance with me... it's all good, isn't it? Happy Happy Art Art and that's all we care about....

Yes, Edzellinni - gesso and gel medium. or just gel medium (or liquid medium for that matter whatever you want to play with)...

yes, I hugged my pet today! he was soooo cute when I came home, had his little feet trimmed and face trimmed and smelled so sweet (for a change). He sends kisses to Sancho

i hugged peaches too today and he mumbled something. he prefers petting and of course, out of hand eating.... not a much fun as snuggly kitties or the mane of a grey horse to bury my face in.
love the fur and feather folk for they bring joy and now ness to my life!
