Happy May Everyone!!
Just a quick hello - wanted to share something that I made over the weekend. I have wanted something to hold my camera, other than my traditional tripod - on my painting table ... and I stumbled on something this weekend. I made a camera stand, with a movable arm, out of a broken lamp that I was going to throw in the garbage.

So ... rifling through papers that I've never used ... I took 4 empty sugar containers out the recycling bin at work (only one is shown in the pic) ... and I had an empty Boca Java shipping box at home...and I turned this:
EASY PEASY! :)
Have a Great Weekend ... and Happy Easter.

This mini album is the second one I've done for 2013, after taking a long hiatus from creating.
What I love most about this album, is I managed a lot better with incorporating painting touches throughout the mini album. I left a lot of room for journaling and photos ... so it's a nice mini album to present pics, thoughts, etc.

By my bed, I have more journals ... one for sketching, one for watercolor ... one a mix of watercolor and mini scrappin.
I like to think I'm not the only one out there who has all these journals going at once ... LOL
Well ... this year ... I am determined to play with watercolor. Not my favorite medium by any means ... but I don't like that have have these beautiful looking paints - and they are just sitting there!LOL
So ... if you have a collection of anything sitting around ... break it open. Use it! Learn it! ... and enjoy it.
Have a great weekend.

Sooooo ... I doodle.
I started a new job recently ... and had 2 interesting conversations with "one who is in charge" ... and it seems one of my new co-workers is "perturbed" that I do not "chit chat".
Was I SERIOUSLY being chastised for not participating in idle chit chat aka GOSSIP.
After the second "encouraging talk" ... of course ... I'm infuriated - and any inkling of wanting to talk has flown out the window. I am polite ... if they need me I respond ... but otherwise - I stay to myself.
So ... as I'm doodling and talking on the phone ... I see the words forming on the page.
"This wouldn't even be an issue if I were a man."
When is the last time anyone had a hissy fit, because a MAN didn't stop by their cube and say hello? Why is it that women are so ... so... insecure? catty? I don't get it.
I just want to come to work ... do my job ... and LEAVE.
If I were a man ... it wouldn't be an issue.
That is my story - and I'm sticking to it.:)
Have a great Weekend!
