Hello Kitty vs another pink cat! 15 February 2011 (#4)

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

My two daughters love Hello Kitty and when I found her on some wrapping paper and another pink cat on some different wrapping paper I thought I'd make them have a "fight"!

#7 White Rose Abstracted

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

More anti-productive works. I found scraps around the art room, have seen other people do stuff like this, but I really don't have a clue what I'm doing. I thought the white piece sortof looked like a rose, so made a stem and leaves to match.

Black & White, and Blue, stitched together with a collaged head of David, a recycled Dr. Suess book, and an old National Geographic. I haven't decided where this one is heading...I'm rather partial to it. Maybe I'll mail it to me?

77-365 N is for Neptune

Tuesday, February 15, 2011



After so many great comments on # 76 I decided that indeed today would have to be for Neptune.

Everything I found here I found in the lane yesterday on my "meander" with the exception of the couple gazing up at yes, Neptune which, my husband would like to remind you all, does have rings. That is a satellite in the corner which he dressed up as once for Halloween, Neptune is his favorite planet and today is his birthday!

And frankly, Bang! is how he still makes me feel after almost 20 years together.

#77 - N is for Noodle

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
The noodle soup recipe isn't anything special so I didn't mind covering it up. What I liked about the recipe is the line at the beginning, "... all the colds, malaises, and depressions usually remedied at the expense of our feathered friends." Man, I'm glad I'm not one of that author's friends. They seem to be knocked off with cheerful abandon.

And, yes, that is not soup in the bowl, but I was fixated on noodles. I'm feeling a bit punk and wishing I had a huge bowl of hot noodles with a light broth that is not made at the expense of any friends, feathered or otherwise.

There is a large Amish community near where I live, so I love Amish imagery. I combined these children with a photo taken of an autumn lane.

#67 to #73- OOps!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
I scanned these pieces from my old art journal. They are brightened and cropped to post card size. I will add stuff to some of them after they are printed. I will alter and reuse most of my work. I hope it doesn't come off as lazy, but it seemed like a good way to catch up.





I completely forgot to label this post. Oh well, I will carry on...

63 - Mail forwarding experiment #2

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Another post to the same person, delivered to my brothers place. This time, I've made the pimp-up a little more drastic. Surely they can't pass this on without charging for postage right?

I love the forwarding service and I have often wondered what the limits are of this service.

For example, JJ do you reckon you could send me a piece and I could forward it on to say Postmuse, without having to pay any money? Suppose that we didn't open it? Suppose we added something to it and just said "Sorry, recipient has moved" then put on the next persons address? Would this work? Is it illegal? It's probably immoral right?

62 - Post forwarding experiment #1

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I promise I will get back to the alphabet series soon, I know exactly what comes next for B!

However, as I mentioned, my brother has asked me to forward some post for him, and in the process I've had to sort through all of his other post.

I found a forwarding address for this one, and thought it seemed a waste not to pimp it a little before I sent it on it's way.

This should save me a little postage. I actually know the person this is going to, and I wonder if they are going to charge her for the pimping. I'm not sure why they would, it's relatively simple right?

Second piece - where does the pink come from? Murky flood water has done some amazing (how I dislike that overused word) things.
