A little tiny blog post.. before madness begins

January 30, 2011

Busy, busy ….. Yes school and work. Its just non stop…. a little part of me likes it, and a little part panics.. Its all good. When it is over.. it will be such an accomplishment!!

Its my Sweet niece’s 1st Birthday today!! I just love being a aunt… I sent her some outfits and butterfly wings.. every little girl needs a pair of butterfly wings to fly.. Here is a picture of the Birthday button she can wear for her party:

she is also getting a early Valentine gift :

Its a adorable little red ballet outfit.. the gift is topped with a small wall hanging..

And I sent her Mommy a little fabric bundle…. she is in the middle of making a family photo quilt for her… I thought she would enjoy just some scraps of vintage fabric

Thats pretty much it for me.. back to my studies and hitting the books today.. 5 more months, 5 more months….. just had to leave you with what I found while I was cleaning yesterday… my 8 year-old … hmmmm….. wonder what this guy did..


This Christmas WE….

Welcome to the New Blog

April 22, 2010

Thank you for coming to the new Flea Market STudio Blog! Don’t you just love my new Banner? My friend Kat designed it for me. She is a buddy that I have had in the Art World since I started Scrapbooking. There are friends that cross over from the Art world and become more of a friend than a Art friend. My friend Alice  also happens to be one of those friends. The wonders of the Art community! I was so grateful when Hope  Wallace designed my banner about 3  years ago. I cannot believe its been that long! I started blogging on January 16, 2007. I look back now and cannot believe what a different time that was in my Life. I was living in Arizona.. working 2 days a week… enjoying my Art more than anything. What a difference 3 years make. I am living in California… working full time… and now Art is kind of on the back burner. Not as important as it used to be. Don’t get me wrong.. I do more Art than I post.. just not as excited to share it like I used to. Jaded? maybe. I said to myself that if Art stopped being fun.. that is when it was time to stop. It’s still fun, but not willing to make it part of my everyday. It is hard work putting your Art out there. You have to photograph, download, crop, come up with new and exciting things everyday. Live, Eat and Breathe it. Spend less time with your Family.. Friends and the Fresh air of the Outdoors. When you live in California where its sunny nearly everyday of the year.. the last thing you want to do is be inside.  I have made it a priority to be outside as much I can and the Beach.. calls my name daily. Why it was time to change the Blog. The funny thing is, I have a little feeling that this Blog will be updated more than the last one. Maybe I needed a little change.. a fresh look.. a new Home. Whatever it is.. I feel great about it!

I wanted to share a giant book I made for D. It is one of the biggest books I have ever made.. it measures 10 x 15. A huge challenge for me. It has been in the works for a while now. I finally just finished it the other day.  Here are some pages to share..

Thank you for Coming into the new and improved FLEA MARKET STUDIO BLOG!
