What's on Your Workdesk, Wednesday? A big mess. #256

Seriously, it's back to the pile-stuff-on-it stage.  But at least the floor is still clear.

So I'm just going to share with you some finished stuff, to prove I'm still alive;  it's
been forever since my last post.  We've been working on so many house projects,
it's hard to get into the art room for any good amount of play time, you know?

Here are some atcs and moos for a mail art column at Unruly Paper Arts, I'm
sending them out to people who leave comments.  I was only going to do twelve,
but I ended up making more, because that's a lot of background to use!! So . . .

And here are some little books I made, that fit in a bigger altered book with a niche
cut inside to hold them:

in the Spring 2014 Altered Arts Magazine
And that's what's been on my workdesk lately.  This picture is weird, it's one of
those projects that seemed like a good idea at the time, but now????
See you at the Stamping Ground--thank you, Julia, for hostessing!

fairies, a please, and a thank you--What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #253

The fairies:
Oh-kay, back to working in the living room on a tray table:
working out the details with tape . . .

the daughter helping with some fussy cutting!
The please??
One of my collages is in the running for the cover of Altered Arts Magazine, but
they're having a voting thing.  Soooo, if you're a facebook kind of WOYWWer,
please go vote for "D?"  Here's the linky:  Altered Arts Magazine Cover Vote.
(THANK YOU to Julia, not only for hosting woyww, but for voting for me--I seriously
appreciate it--I was in one of those moods, so you actually made me cry!!!)
this is the collage in question
The thank you!!
If you've ever heard of Our World, Our Art, I'm participating, and giving away a
little thank-you-for-leaving-a-comment gifty.  Here's the link for that post: LINK 
FOR THAT POST.  (You may recognize the gifty!)

Happy What's On Your Workdesk, everyone!  I'm having a good snoop tomorrow,
so see you soon!  (House update: got the trim pulled off in the living room, painted 
walls and ceiling, and pulled up all the carpet and pad.  New trim and carpet next!)

(PS--After a few daughter comments, I want to point out that the daughter LIKES
fussy cutting!  If she comes in the room and I'm cutting out something, she'll scold me
and say, "Why didn't you save that for me, give me that!"     How great is THAT???)

Our World, Our Art Event

Have you heard of Our World, Our Art?  Once upon a time, it was One World,
One Heart--it's an international, get-to-know-your-fellow-arty-bloggers event and
gift giveaway.  Even though the event has begun, you can still join in.  Just click the
OWOA button in the sidebar for details.  And even if you don't join the linky list,
you can still participate in the get-to-know-you/giveaway part, but you do
need to be an active blogger.

So hey, everyone, if you're new to this blog, my name is Trisha, and I like making
pretty much everything.  No, seriously, pretty much everything.  Now I'm not saying
I'm particularly good at everything I try, but you know, it's the process, right?

hand made book full of tags
Lately I'm enjoying stitching up little handmade art journals.  A couple of months
ago, I sent one off to a friend, but to the wrong address!  We thought it was lost
forever, so of course I resent her a different one.  ANYWAY, over two months later,
and voila!

The little journal has found its' way home, and wants to come live with YOU.  Please
leave an e-mail address with your comment, so I can find you.  Plus, I'm always
happy to blog follow and visit you, but PLEASE make sure your blog settings are
such that I can find you.

the gift giveaway will be announced the 19th, comments close the 18th.  Thank you
to Lisa for hosting!

UPDATE--Teresa is the winner and has been contacted via e-mail, thank you to all
who commented!

So many tiaras . . .

Just a little sneaky peek at a "Teacups and Tiaras" themed collage, inspired by the
Reader's Art Quest at Unruly Paper Arts this month:

So many tiaras . . .
Please stop by and see the rest of this collage at the Altered Pages Artsociates
blog.  The Artsociates are teaming up with the Unrulies this month, so there
should  be lots of great inspiration for everyone.  (That pretty little tiara stamp in
the background?  From Something Tattered.)

April fooling!
