recently a challenge was posted to alter an old cd. i have lots of them laying around that skip music or stick and for some reason didn't ever throw them out. so i decided to give a try at making some art with one. here is my first try at altered cd making. i kind of like it and think i just may try it again.

is it too early to think about christmas? oh, it probably is, especially since halloween hasn't even passed but i have to start planning a little early because i always make my christmas cards. this year i decided i'm going to send christmas postcards, so i started working on some tonight. i have a few ideas for various ones but i just love this little bird ornament stamp i bought and i just had to use him first!

i had this packaging tape transfer that i did for "bless its little pointed head" for many many months and it just laid on my art desk. i never seemed to find just the right thing to use it on. i was making this postcard yesterday and thought i'd marry the two. it makes me chuckle.

most of the time this blog serves to post pictures of my artwork, however, i'm throwing you all a curve ball today. here is a picture i took at my youngest son's birthday party on october 15th. can you believe my baby turned 23. wow. where does the time go? my oldest son, josh, will be 25 in december.
so left to right we have todd (my hub), stacey (josh's girlfriend), josh, my dad, my mom and mike.

some of you may have seen a couple of chunky cupcake pages i put on my blog a little while ago. yesterday i spent a large part of the day working on a few more. i now have all the fronts done but they still need tags, ribbons, etc plus i have all the backs to do. i'm still a long way off from completing them but i did put a considerable dent in them yesterday. here are a couple more from yesterday's work which are 1/2 finished.

it's been a few days since i've been able to complete any art, but tonight i managed to get three postcards done. i think i will keep two of them initially so i can make copies. i am trying to get a few postcards together that i think will be good to make copies to sell. here are the three postcards i did tonight.

the past couple of days i've been working on a few things. i dug out my wax and flat iron and made some paper to cut up. you can see it on the "don't look back" postcard. i thought i might
use that postcard for a halloween contest on the mail art world site but when it was finished it just didn't look halloween enough to me. i'll have to try again i think, altho, making halloween things isn't quite what i like to do. i'm not too fond of the whole halloween thing, well, the candy part is ok!

i'm hosting a chunky cupcake swap on the mail art world site. some of the people who signed up for the swap are making cupcakes like crazy and i hadn't even really gotten started. i felt a little motivated to make a few in an effort to catch up to them. i still have to put cupcake recipes on the back but at least the fronts are done.
