Besides making pieces for my kids' & their significant others..............with biz slow the work i have been knocking out is filling the house, garage-it is under beds...
But I am having a RIOT! Hubby went & bought me a drill bit set with 200 bits in it-ya think he was bent I was breaking all of his? People with Lyme should not be using sharp objects (like saws) but it is a blast!
Wishing you & yours the HAPPIEST & HEALTHIEST of holidays. Hugs,

It's just too much fun turning crap into art! Finding treasures on Sunday's has been a regular routine. There is a Flea Market here that takes about 3 1/2 hours to walk it. But great treasures are everywhere & my garage is FULL. It will be ending soon as here in Illinois once it's cold they shut down. I must have 50 play things out there so I will continue keeping myself busy. Hugs & love to all! <3

The down side is with biz slow my garage is over flowing with new objects to play with & finished pieces! I think it's sale time! Hugs & kisses to all of you. <3

It's funny to think this is maybe half of the new work. These 'found objects' - I am having a riot playing with them! I have a stack (many bins) that will be turning into art soon. I have been at Flea markets every weekend & I have such a great stash of fun things to play with. Love & hugs to you all!

Since my house full of people left last Sunday after they were here for 8 days.........I was ready to play. Putting off cleaning & groceries for a day I started Monday on a creative roll.
I also was contacted from a gal who as a positive Lyme diagnosis along with her teenage daughter. It turned out Shanny lives 20 minutes from me & I referred them to my Infectious Disease docs who are very aggressive in treating Lyme Disease. They WILL do all in their power to deal with the Lyme & all the secondary symptoms that do not go away. On Facebook I am using my pik-line as my profile picture letting her know I am standing beside her & I am here. I can recall how scared I was crawling, could not see or focus, I still walk into walls & brainfog 8+ years later. Set my microwave on fire, had squirrels in my kitchen, the toaster you can find in my frig along with shoes! My Fibromyalgia & Arthritis I can ignore but the Chronic Sinus Infections the Lyme causes & will not respond to oral meds is why I have had 11 pik-lines. Hoo boy I can use a shot of Tequila! Have yourselves a wonderful weekend. Shanny this is for you honey.

When my son moved into his house (we are such pranksters!) Ric found 2 UGLY fringe lamps so when we came to see his new house-Ric left them in his bedroom. So we go to the casino & we get home & I look at the 10' x 10' clock Ric & I built & one of the ugly lamps was on our shelf so this meant war!
Looking for found objects at a HUGE flea market we found a banged up 8 FOOT Marlin. Ric put electrical tape on the nose, made a tiny Nemo fin & carved private parts on it so if you are bashful-DON'T LOOK! So last week we PADLOCKED it to the front entrance on his house & even he had to say "this is a good one!" so good he wanted to leave it up thinking & laughing about his CRAZY parents but there are kids in the neighborhood.

Ever since I did the hubcap for LandFill Art I thought it was just too cool to use discarded or unusual old items as my canvas. Since I have done a blow torch, a corn muffin pan (?) this strainer with 3 mermaids & a silver bowl. What a great break from the 'gals!' Hope all of you are fine-wishing you all a beautiful weekend. Hugs,
