HOT Art !

HolySheepSh*t it has been awhile since I've blogged, eh?
Before you go thinking I have been up to 'no good' and it's been keeping me away from the computer ...I will SHOW you what I have been doing with every free moment I have:

These are Altered Matchbooks. I have a bag filled with old matchbooks that my Mom had given me years ago -- and I just never had the heart to throw them away. While in the art studio I picked one up and started painting, stamping and generally distressing :)

For fun I asked my daughter to put them up on eBay "just to see if they might sell"...and each one I have created so far has sold (all of the ones shown here).

No, I don't sell them framed...I was just fooling around with our Web-Easy software program and thought it looked kinda cool...so I am presenting them to you this way :)

I am currently making more and will have them up on eBay this coming week...
