Nighty night

I managed to get one more simple piece done before turning in for the night. I probably won't get much made on Tuesday as it is a busy day full of non-making-stuff stuff.

Bedtime Vignette

This is a 5 x 7 collage using two images from flickr's chicks57, and legs from another flickr image sharing group (I've forgotten who specifically, sorry!), wings from spiceitup.etsy.com, and boots scanned from a magazine. Most of these pieces were reprinted in black and white, trimmed with scissors, and hand colored with ink and pastel. The pieces were then attached to a background made from textures from flickr's JoesSistah and pareeerica with scrap trims added.

She's a sweetie with legs from here to there! I'm sitting here with my morning coffee, smiling at an image of whoever buys your cast-off magazines at the thrift store. I can just see them looking at all the photos with the feet gone. They must think you have a foot fetish! Seriously, you find the neatest feet!!!

It is absolutely wonderful to have you back home and creating. Sometimes that old muse does indeed seem to take a wee bit of a vacation but by the looks of things, you are back on track. So happy to hear that your Dad is recovering nicely too. Welcome back dear friend and thank you for the wonderful comments on my blog.

You don't have to *do* anything, or make anything. You're home. It's enough to just *be*.

I've been behind and am just catching up with your blog. So glad you are home, survived the Springfield airport, survived the flight. And, I'm super, super glad to hear that your dad is doing ok. You have all been in my thoughts.

Just a reminder - you are one of my favorite people. Just because. :)
