Valentine Gift for a Frida Kahlo Fan?..and Mo Carved Wubba!
Doing my relaxing thang again ...carving da wubba! Notice on the owl I drew in the eyes after..I am not that advanced yet to get those teeny-tiny dots with even my smallest carving blade! Oy!
I like "Barking Up The Wrong Tree"..but I picture it in a positive light...little doggie is barking at the kitty letting her know he will get help for her :-) Aww..I touched your heartstrings with that one I bet. HA HA!

IF IT WERE A PERFECT WORLD....
...then all of my rubber stamp carving would turn out perfect!
The Beatles sing "everybody's got something to hide, 'cept me and my monkey!"..so I decided not to hide my monkey's..no matter how imperfect they turned out tonight. It was FUN, and I learned not to carve when I'm tired!

Carving a Niche & Breaking the Mold
The older..er...more MATURE I get the more I seem to regress!
I am playing with clay! Polymer Clay.
The 'religious' embellishments are created from molds that I made after a trip to the local Catholic goodie (?) store. The sun faces are molds purchased at the craft store.
These are all just trial runs as I experiment with curing time and paint effects. My intention is to create one of a kind bracelets and prayer (or ) wish boxes with the clay.

This One's For You MOM
For four and a half years now I have lived here on the coast and hardly a day has gone by that I did not spend time on the cliffs overlooking Little Corona beach - you have all heard me talk of it - it is my sanctuary - my place of worship, and solitude. I brought my Mom in her wheelchair to my spot many a time when she and Dad moved here. A walk across the Goldenrod Footbridge and a stroll down Ocean Avenue brought us to Little Corona. Mom loved the spot - and even on days when a walk in the wheelchair was not feasible I would drive her to the corner of Poppy Avenue and Ocean to enjoy the view while sitting in my Bug.

Frida de la CD
There has got to be a ba-zillion CD's on our planet that are only contributing to landfill's wouldn't you think? So, I recycle them into ART. Especially the FREE AOL ones. I mean good grief, we could pave the highways of America with them!
The Frida CD was another one of my "Summer of the Postcards". I used images of Frida, embossing powders and fibers to embellish. I punched holes in the CD by first warming it up with my heat tool. I wonder what Diego Rivera would think of that? ;-)
