YIPEEEE!! Radiation finished!!!!

Whew!!! I finally finished my radiation treatments on Friday.  I am truely blessed because the worse side effect I've had is the burning in my throat area and a degree of fatigue.  I was able to drive myself the entire time so that was good.    Back to my art room tomorrow to work on jewelry.  A blessed week to all.

Round Robins

I finished working in a Round Robin art journal today and went to mail it and almost fell out.  It will be going to Australia so I knew it would be costly but my goodness.  I am now sending it in a flat rate envy and it is still over 12.00   Art journals are not like altered books in that they don't have things added to them that will affect their weight.  I am in one other round robin and when I finish that one, I am bowing out.  Postage is just too darn high.  :(

Dilemma of the day

Mad Scientist Experiment Runs Amuck!!!!!!!

Today I tried to rid my etching tub of ferric chloride and created a disaster.  I forgot I had added baking soda water into a small bowl a few days back and poured it all into a large container with the ferric chloride.  A volcano of puffy, boiling, sizzling, spewing mess came pouring out of my throw away container.  This stuff took on a life of it's own.  Sort of like the big marshmellow man in the movie Ghost Busters.  Now, the dilemma, where to put this stuff?????  Well, all I know to do with it is put as much as I could in a gargage bag and then hose off the table and deck floor.  I've probably contaminated the whole neighborhood.   

Sometimes I think I need to be locked up.

Abundance Doll Finished

This is my finished doll.  I made the raven from sculpy and put the frog in the wicker cage.  This was a really enjoyable class.  I love her jacket.
This is a close up of the frog in the cage and the raven.
