Where does the time go?

We are still busy working on the studio. I haven't had much time to do any Illo Fridays. I have had the ideas, just no time.

I have been cutting out images from magazines to do compositions for cards for my mother, who had knee replacement surgery.

I love doing collages anyway. It is relaxing and sure makes the time go faster at work. I am always amazed when someone comments on how talented or how good a collage looks.

I mean it's just cutting and pasting. Everyone can do that.

Just do it. Try it. It's only old magazines. Supplies consist of scissors and a glue stick. Card Stock, if you like or just glue cut-outs on top of old cards. Recycle.
Let your inner child, artist out. Have fun.

Well, no wonder

Apparently I am not the only one having trouble with this particular template.

I finally had time to see if I could reload it or get a different blogger template.

And the one I had been using wasn't even a choice anymore.

So this looks much better.

Been to busy to draw a thing. I have been working on a stamped cross-stitch sampler while at work but, since July 1st I have been working on the garage to studio/game room conversion.

Painting is almost finished. Most of the floor is stained.

Can't wait to get all my various art/craft supplies in one place instead of all over the house and packed away in boxes.
