Role Reversal

With the early summer sun bearing down today, we found a way to beat the heat and let little Matilde cool off... squeeze the beak and it quacks too!

Here in Texas

The Journal arrived yesterday, and boy am I glad to see it! I can tell you, looking through it has certainly been the inspiration I've needed to get out my paints again.

I've been really lax about doing any art this month, but knowing I have to, well it's a kick in the caboose, that's for sure! (haha)

Here's a peek at a lovely card that Miragee included, and I can't quit staring at it's loveliness. *sigh* I'm going to get to work on the journal very soon. (Hopefully, I'll be mailing out my ATC's along with the journal.)

I'll post again with a sneak preview!

(oh, and don't I wish I had a photo to show y'all of the GIGANTIC rubber ducky I saw last weekend. It was the size of a suburban, parked in front of a mom and pop burger place. I saw it as we drove by in Houston. I have no idea what it was doing there, but I thought it looked rather lonely....)

My Picture won't Upload!

I've finally done a series of pictures of Puflet, but for some reason the images won't upload to this blog. I'll try again tomorrow, but if anyone's interested you can take a quick peek at www.puflet-palace.blogspot.com.

I hope it's OK to put Puflets on here as well as ducks. They have got webbed feet!

Out of Taiwan

Hi kids! Sorry that I haven't been able to update you on our journal book because Iwas working very hard on it! The good news is that I just finished pasting my story onto our book and I have to tell you guys, it is getting bigger and thicker and sorta fragile because of the paper weight. I am sure that all of us will handle it with tenderness when receiving it!

Here is a glimpse into my entry. I did 6 images threaded by a short story. It seems that my submission for the cake theme (IF) came a little bit late. But mine is definitely different from the cakes we eat most of the time. It's a Peking duck cake!

I will mail our one and only journal book to Dee in two days. I am kind of sad that it is going to leave my little island. Maybe it will come back in a few months or even next year!

So, have a fun, duckie summer my fellow artists! How can life be boring with all those adorable ducks in our life:-)?
