yeah... badassery.

Bear nailed it - she's badass. Still a WIP (work in progress)- she's nekkid at the moment... and her hair isn't 100% done... and of course the background is still lacking ... everything. But I love her.

look at me...

that's what she seems to be saying. she's a WIP, and I don't know where she's going yet, or what she's going to say... but I like her.

doodle with me...

quirky girl...

No, not me. Although I carry that title proudly, I mean my quirky girl canvas. Mel got me the Suzi Blu book for my birthday - Mixed Media Girls, and I attempted my first girl. I'm pretty happy with her for a first attempt - it can only get better, right? Mixed Media is so forgiving, making a mistake just means making another layer. Trust me. There are lots of layers here. ;-) And I incorporated a little bit of a 'doodle' by making her a dress! The quote is from my favorite prayer - our 11th Step Prayer, The Prayer of St Francis. I showed hb the finished canvas, and his reaction: "hmmm. she has a BIG head." It's hard trying to explain Suzi Blu to husbands. They just don't get 'quirky'.

Can I just tell you all how incredibly blessed this class has made me feel?  Watching everyone as they learn the process, and then create art - and be excited about it... well... it  just makes me want to burst with blessings. 

I think the best part has been watching the students bring their children into it - even the kids are doodling and making art - and having fun doing it!  It's a bonding experience for the moms and kids, and just amazing to watch. 

The class is ongoing - work at your own pace, and it's never too late to join.  I hope you'll join us...

tomorrow already????

It's finally almost here.  My friends will be so glad not to see me linking my blog 3x a day...

I forgot to post HERE who won the class - Selena did, and she generously gifted the class to Ragen... so spank you to Selena, and welcome to Ragen!  Two of my SR1 friends... my Soul Glue Girlz... <3

So I'm off to cook dinner... OH ok - I'm off to open the bag of frozen stuff, put it in a skillet until it's hot and pour it out onto our plates.  It's kind of like cooking only not. 

See you all in the morning at I Doodle, Do You? !!!!!!!!

OMGosh... 4 days.

Only FOUR more days until May 10th.  Do you know what this means?  Only FOUR more days until my birthday.  ;-)

Oh, and that's also when 'i doodle, do you?' starts!!!!  Can you tell I'm excited?  I'm having a ball this weekend doing all the video editing.  I taught myself how to use Movie Maker - and figured out how to add text and music (all licensed correctly and attributed) so I was able to add little tigger-type comments throughout the videos. 

I kept it all nice and clean though - since we have some young eyes viewing it!  No TMI out of my mouth in the class... at least not intentionally.  Just know that my mind was THINKING it. 

I'm ready to give another class away... with four days left this will probably be the last one... so here's the deal.

You have to have already signed up for the class by Monday, May 7th, at 7pm tigger-time (EST) in order to be eligible.  Yes, I said already signed up and paid... What's that you say? That makes no sense?  Keep reading.

At 7pm on the 7th I will choose one class member and their class will be refunded to them... (or if they wish, they can choose to gift the class to a friend). 

SO you REALLY have to be in it to win it this time....

Once again... in it to win it!!!!

You've heard me talk about Letter Love... it's certainly been one of my favorite online classes EVAH.  I feel like my creativity took a huge leap of faith, and totally stuck the landing.  I love the Alpha Doodles the best - and I love the freedom of being able to do lettering on my creations without cringing. 

I am happy to announce that I am giving away the tuition for Letter Love to one of my 'i doodle, do you?' students.  Every person signed up for my class is eligible, but you must be signed up by May 10th. 

So... you gotta be IN it to WIN it.  :-)
