heyyyy everyone!!!

what up?

what I miss?

I almost flipped off the edge of my apartment's balcony, yesterday, when the wind decided to turn a blanket into a parachute.

I have this thin blanket thing, that I found at a garage sale, that I use to cover the floor when I'm doing anything messy. It got covered with bits of wood and sawdust, while I was playing, yesterday. I go out to shake it off, holding onto it's corners. The wind grabs it and lifts me off my feet! Crazy wind! Luckily, I caught the rail with my leg. I spent the rest of the afternoon calling people to tell them how I narrowly avoided my death once more...

I spent the holiday weekend hiding out at my apartment. Caught between a fit of depression and boredom. And my knee hurts. I cry.

Miss yall. Have I missed anything crazy?

OMG it is KORY!!!

KORY's in da house!!!!!

And that is CRAAAAAZY about the wind-- good thing for you that you hooked your leg! I do bet it is sore now though!

I have put Gin's work in Vae's journal in Vae's album in my gallery and Sheryl's work in Gin's journal in Gin's album.

Check them out!!

Kory- my work in your journal is in your album as well-- I put it in there a week or so ago--


Vae had a GREAT idea-- she thinks it would be a good idea for us to plan a get together to give our journals back to the person they belong to. We could Skype gin in with us-- What do ya'll think? FUN???

Yes! It really IS me! I've been in hiding. Which has been both nice and a nightmare. When I'm left to my own devices and shunning the outside world, things get crazy. My apartment looks like a madhouse.

I went on a craze at the hardware store. I bought one of the Dremel kits that come with EVERYTHING- so that I could saw/drill/cut/sand/whatev er. I bought wood and made a little toy theatre. It isn't finished yet, but if anyone wants a pic of its status at the moment, let me know and I'll text you the pic!

Speaking of apartments and tools. So, my neighbor is totally quiet thru the week- I dont hear much. But her kids seem to either show up (or wake up) on the weekends and it sounds like a Chuck E Cheese outside my apartment door. They SCREAM, SING and JUMP UP AND DOWN without any breaks. They eventually go in around 10pm and then I just have to hear them SCREAMING, SINGING AND JUMPING UP AND DOWN thru my living room wall. It makes me insane.

Well, because of my seclusion/self-imposed exile over the long holiday weekend plus the extra days I took off work, and because of my already mentioned habit to exist in an alternate reality whhen I'm left alone, I was waking up at 3 in the morning- so there I am, sawing a couple of pieces of wood in two, right outside my front door. That #@$*)* next door has the nerve to come out and give me a dirty look! Lady! I've listened to your welfare checks scream for up to eight hours nonstop, DO NOT GIVE ME A DIRTY LOOK BECAUSE I DECIDE I WANT TO CUT WOOD AT 3AM!

ohhh! Terri! I'm excited! I'm gonna find where I put the password and I'm gonna check it out!!!

Several years ago Hubby and I were in HomeDepot and he was looking around for something. I looked down on a little shelf by itself and there was a Dremel Tool case filled with everything under the sun, but there was no packaging and no price.

I asked the salesman and he told me some ridiculously low price and stuck a price tag on it, then he said, "Oh, but it's not for sale because I want it." I basically said, "Sorry, Charlie," and took off for the checkstands and bought it before he knew what happened. Hubby had no clue what was going on, but he was happy when I gave it to him :>)

And yes, I want to see your theater-in-progress.

(I guess that embossing powder in the big jar on my mantle I talked about a week or two ago was something else...Welcome back, Kory...and had you not disappeared for so long, you'd know what I was talking about!)~Judy

I don't have Skype and all I can picture is Sheldon the time he stayed in his bedroom and everybody had to talk to him through the laptop on the roller thingy with his t-shirt hanging on the front. But except for that it sounds SOOOO FUN!!!!!

Darla, the next AJ headed our way today. Should be there tomorrow or could be Thursday since it went out in our afternoon mail, not morning. I just stuck same amount of postage on it that was there before and stuck put it in mail at work. No long, treacherous trip to the post office. Walking thru 3 feet of snow. No coat, no shoes to speak of.... Ok, it actually just across the street from work. And it's not snowing. And I don't need a coat. And I wore flip flops, not shoey shoes. It just sounded more dramatic though.

Hi Kory! We have SO missed you! Your wit and humor got this bunch of wayward people together who have fast become friends. We have missed you and need you around.

This is a good place to be when your depressed. These people can cheer you thru anything. I actually love to play troll and stay in all weekend and not talk to anyone. This is how I came up with no shower weekend days. Heck, sometimes I never take by jammies off. They stay on all day. It's completely fun to trash the place and if yu feel like making something at 2 in the morning, you do. Obviously you did that. Cutting wood at 3. That's cool in my book. Not everybodies, though. Easy to get sad doing it too long though. So. Snap out of it! (grabs shoulders and shake gently). Do you hear me? Snap out of it. Someone get me some TH holtz paint or refills to waive under his nose. That should bring him around.

Sure glad you weren't in the vase on Judy's mantle. Whew that was close.

Did you make your own play house so you can have your own theatre. Plan it out the right way, or did you just want to bring down the house anytime you wanted. With your foot. LOL

I'm sure that was a lot of work. how the truck?

I'm watching the weather, if it gets bad like they are predicting I won't be at Paper Crown this evening, but since I got my weeks wrong, she has the book I did for this month, and I'll just run by there after work one day this week and pick up my next one. We'll see what happens weatherwise.

Yup I got it in the mail yesterday but it's still in the envelope, nice and safe.

Gin, yes you should be getting Darla's.

I mailed to Kory but I think it probably won't get there until Monday or Tuesday. I've heard there are mail delays because of the storms and flooding. I might be able to find the receipt with the tracking number...maybe.

Hi Vae! It was just delivered to my desk!

Gin, I'll be mailing yours either tomorrow or Wednesday. I hate to admit it, but I'm STUCK and don't know what to do, I just keep staring at empty pages!!! Somebody give me an inspiration word!!! PLEASE!!!

Oh what a weekend. Are these storms over??? My Mom's power is still out- she came over y'day to enjoy electricity and hot water and television and charge her phone and iPad. She said something about two transformers on her property blowing up and they 'leaked oil' and they have to clean it up 'before EPA fines them.' I was like 'doesn't OG&E do that?!?!' She said they told her she has to get it cleaned up. What!?

Oh! and Terri! Or HRHx3, whatever it is-

NO! Dont do anything different! I LOVE IT! Yall couldn't do anything wrong in my book, I'll love anything you do! And I LOVE your frog!!!

I had to go to a production meeting on Saturday early evening, and was running around with Holly B before it- she wanted to run by Basket Market- I found the three metallic Distress Paints - 2.00 each! And a jar of the 'dry' Rock Candy stickles, also 2.00. I was there in seach of watercolor pencils- but they didn't have any, this time. Those are so expensive at the stores! But I may just have to break down. Cuz I really want some!!!

I dont know why I'm so blocked, art-journal wise, right now. The blank pages just stare and me and I panic.

heeeeehe

I'm just so blocked!!!

I swear, Darla, the 'themes' from our PC group are so helpful, they really put me in a direction. Except for that 'a book in a book' one from last month- I really couldn't think of how to go with that one- but I'm semi-happy with what came out of it...

Kory, I knew I'd panic when I got each one in the mail, so I doodled little sketches when I was inspired and all excited at the beginning. I did Vae's exactly like my little one inch doodle. Yours I did completely different and about the 5th or 6th idea I had. Chat with me when you get mine and I'll be glad to give you ideas! LOL

I see what you mean about themes though. Next round, if we have a next round, let's do themes. Or we could do themes in our own books and post them. Just add to our own art journals-keep going with them as a group, but do our own instead of mailing.

I think that would be fun. We'll have to revisit this idea when we've all got ours back. I have to sort of think there's a possibility that there might be themes emerging in each journal anyway and it'll be interesting to see if there's a common thread.

Does anyone know when the next mailing date is? I'm kind of thinking it's next Monday but not sure. I still haven't unpacked all the stuff in The Lab... Rob wants to put laminate flooring in there first. But I did find the envelope with the journal still inside last night...

Maybe you could be the charwoman, like on Carol Burnett, with you highlighted and sweeping up the stage, or at a desk as the head-writer or graphics artist or something. I agree...you need to be on there. Or just flashing the audience with your trenchcoat :>)

So Terri, am I to assume that no one in the UK is doing journal pages and they are all being sent to me instead?? If so, then you can send them to my US address. I would still like to add to your art journals, but if it's too hard I can wait. I have an art journal now too, finally bought it and it's adorable!

I have 3 art journals. LOL Not deliberately hogging them. I had Terri's from Vae's time, and today I got Sheryl's and Darla's from Kory.

Not entirely sure what to do right this minute. But I'm going to leave some of the pages open to air since some edges are sticking a little.

Well we are supposed to be mailing this week but we have a bit of a mess.
Poor Gin has ended up with three of the AJ's.
Jarvae by passed Kory and sent her mine and then Kory sent her the two he had which is what was supposed to happen. I have asked her to send mine to Kory- it seems she is working on it and will hopefully be done soon. And send Darla's on to me- She has not done anything in it yet so It will have to go back to her. And mine will have to go back to Jarvae if she didn't do anything in it-- If Gin mails like I mentioned above, we should be back on track and only have the two journals to get make-ups in (Darla's and mine).
So that is where we are--
I am mailing to Sheryl today
I think Sheryl has mailed and Darla has mailed.
Am I right?

Terri, Since I've been up to my ears in all this house mess, I couldn't really work on it anyway for a bit. Gin didn't have one last month so I sent one to her to have during my time. She can send that to Kory and it will still be fairly on schedule (we did get an extension past the 4th, right)? And then he can just send it to me on the next mailing, so that one journal will still have all the entries, just in a different order. Will that work?

The extension was until this week. At least that is what I thought--
She is sending me Darla's without doing anything in it which get that one out of order, too.
What's done is done and we will just have to send Darla's and my journals back to the people that didn't do pages in them so they will be complete.
It really wasn't two months since Gin had one-- She had yours on time before the two she got from Kory-- Kory is now ahead of the game since he mailed two to Gin. He should be getting mine from you but now Gin has it and is working in it-- I have asked her to send it to him when she is done with it.
If she mails me Darla's, even though she hasn't worked in it, mails Kory mine and keeps Sheryl's until time to mail again, we will be in order for this time.
I can send Darla's back to her as soon as I get it done if she can do two in one time period-- Then she can send it on to Sheryl when she finishes. That just leaves mine to get caught up with you the last round. That will give you mine and Kory's at the same time--

My bad! For some reason I thought we were mailing after the holiday weekend, but these days I can barely remember my own name much less what day it is. hehe. Yeah I can do two in a month if needed... I never take the full month anyway I always just procrastinate until the end and do it all in one weekend.

So sorry, I totally misworded that and I'm having one of those days. Please pay no attention to me today. But again, I'm flexible on whatever we need to do on the others.

We're cool if having two doesn't bother you-- I still want to get together and give them back to their owners. I know Gin probably can't but maybe we could get her into Skype or Facetime?

I think that would be a blast. We totally need to get Gin onto Skype. I wonder if I have a webcam laying around somewhere... I used to have one for work and I don't know where it is now. What's facetime?

I haven't mailed yet, but will get to the post office tomorrow, today has just been a bad, bad day. I have Gin's. Sheryl posted that she mailed a few days ago, so I should have it when I get home today.

Awww, thanks, y'all! I miss me too! This bit€h that is always ranting and raving about her job is not the real me, I swear it isn't! Part if it is the company, since the restructuring last summer it has gone so far downhill that nobody is happy and everybody is getting [email protected] on. And part of it is that my thyroid is so far out of whack, I don't recognize myself most days. But hopefully now that my primary care doc is taking over managing it, I will feel better soon.
Sorry for the lengthy explanation, all that to say I miss y'all too!! I hope I get to Skypecrop with y'all Thursday!
I got the AJ from Ms Sheryl today, I haven't opened yet so can't tell you whose it is, but I have it safe & sound! And Gin's goes postal to Vae tomorrow. That is right, isn't it? I mail to Vae? Or am I remembering wrong? My head is so messed up these day!!

I'm all confused just trying to read Terri and Vae's posts. I'll just sit here and do whatever comes my way and send it to Darla.

Darla, the one you just got is Kory's

Darla-
The journal you just got is Kory's.
And yes, you mail Gin's to Jarvae.

My heart goes out to you-- my mom has always had to take thyroid medicine and when it was/is out of whack-- let's just say it wasn't/isn't pretty!

Good plan my super sleuthing friend and I don't think any of the adjustments that need made will affect you or Darla either one--

I have finished Terri's journal and will be mailing that to Kory on Friday (tomorrow is the 4th).

I have also finished Darla's journal and will be mailing that to Terri on Friday as well.

I have not started on Sheryl's journal, but will be mailing that to Terri next mailing.

I hope this is what I'm supposed to be doing. If it's not, let me know before Friday 5th as I'll be mailing about 10 in the morning.

Thanks Terri~my knees are killing me. LOL I'm almost embarrassed to say in addition to scrubbing the baseboards, I also did some touch up painting on them. Thank goodness we don't have company all the time.

When I had your journal, Kory, I sent Terri the pics of the cover and inside cover you asked me to send~that's why my cat is in your cover picture~LOL

Regarding the background you asked about~it's watercolor paints and salt! And probably too much water because if I'd done it actually in an art journal instead of a separate page, I would have soaked the whole journal. You can use watercolors fairly dry or with gallons of water, shake salt on and the salt absorbs the paint and leaves a light spot. Wait for it to dry and then shake/scrape off all the salt.

Regarding the "images" in your journal~they're not stamps. I drew Dennis's aluminum and brass water pump tags from the mine, a spring, some weird piece of metal from somewhere and clock guts we got from a guy over in Colorado. Sorry~I can put them in a pile and send you a picture of them, but they're just drawings.

Oh, and with the watercolor and salt thing~it's more dramatic the darker (and drier)the color and it's fun to experiment with different size/shape salts and amounts. Also you can do a layer of watercolor, let it dry then add another layer and do the salt on that when it's wet, but I've never gotten the results I wanted doing it layered that way.

Thank you!

LOL~had not meant to be a tease, but Kory had commented in Terri's gallery on several things that I just noticed and I never think to "converse" in gallery postings, so since it's an art journal thing I sort of answered here, but I never know how much or what is okay to say, hence my vague but hopefully clear watercolor/salt directions~LOL But if you get more bribe money as a direct result of my enigmatic descriptions, I'm mad keen on Bo Bunny Anthem stuff.....just sayin'.....
