One of my favorite things!
Yes, my blog is more than just chatter on family, friends and artwork! It's also a place for book reviews and now!! TaDa!! Cosmetics..ok, not really cosmetics but cosmetic tools! I've had this lip/eye liner sharpener for years! And I mean years (you can see the picture below on how old it is - and yucky!). So today I splurged a whole $2.49 and bought a new one! It's by Revlon and just great (picture on the right). WOW! I can't believe how great this sharpener works! Check out the perfect points and it's enclosed! This goes to say..you need to replace your 'tools' more often! I guess it doesn't matter if it's an art tool or cosmetic tool! Lesson learned! This old one has now been laid to rest! Forever! In the trash! Good bye! Thanks for the memories!
Now a little artwork....my beaded bird is coming along. My next bird post will be a finished piece! I just have a little on the head to finish and the branch, which should take about two 1/2 days of evening TV watching!
And since I don't have enough to do, my friends back in Michigan (Carol T. and Mary) signed up for an online Mixed Media w/paper and cloth class with Jane LaFazio (through Joggles.com). Not sure how or why I signed up too...I certainly don't need another project but figured, worse case, I could print out the lessons and work on later. But...I did start the first lesson which was creating background pieces. Here are some that I did. I pulled my back lifting Mandy again this a.m. so I won't be working on (or taking more pics) until Monday.
Tomorrow (Sunday) Carol and I are going to the Master Garden show here in Ocala. Weather is beautiful and we always enjoy our day at the garden show. I'll post pics on Monday. Until then, check your 'tool' box and get rid of some old 'tools'. Time to revamp!
