Friday Night Fab Five: Sing-a-Long

Hi everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things I'm totally into this week. I'm rarely without my kids in the car, so usually we're "rocking out" to Yo Gabba Gabba, Fresh Beat Band or some other sort of music that makes me nutso. But there ARE times here and there when it's just me and when that happens...I SING. So here are 5 of my favorite songs that, when they come on the radio, HAVE to be belted out at full volume.

1. "It's Too Late" Carole King



2. "Right Here" SWV



3. "Hello It's Me" Todd Rundgren



4. "Fernando" ABBA



5. "If It Isn't Love" New Edition



What can I say? I'm an old soul in the body of a gettin' older woman. HA! There are 1,000s more that I'll belt out when given the chance but I'll spare you my renditions of Monkees music and the Xanadu soundtrack. ;) Do you have some favorite songs that never fail to get you singing?

Have a great weekend! :D

Hi everyone!

Yes, I know, I know...it's like a glitter filled ghost town around here. Funny enough, I HAVE been making stuff, I HAVE been doing fun "life" stuff but for whatever reason, it just hasn't translated into frequent blog updates like I used to do. *sigh* Actually, I'm just going to come right out and say it: It's Instagram's fault. There, I said it. It's just so easy to take a shot with my phone, type in blah blah blah and get out. lol It's a shame...but the silver lining is that this week I'll be around the blog so yay! lol Anyhoo, look at what I made!


So I had this 8x10 canvas on which I randomly put pieces of masking tape and then covered in gesso, I really globbed it on in places so I'd have a nice raised texture here and there. Then I took off the tape and it was a week (literally) of spraying on Dylusions inks, then water, then inks, then dry, then come by, spray and walk away. lol I added some torn pieces of music paper.
