This is the drawing that I did for Illustration Friday. Not really something I want to think about - especially with a possibility of snow overnight in our Alberta weather forecast! However, the snowman seemed so appropriate - I guess I could have drawn a popsicle...oh well! If I wake up to a winter wonderland, I am blaming Illustration Friday!

I do not usually post artwork that is not my own, but in this case I had to make an exception. This was done for me by Diane Salter, who has taken my lettering classes. I think she is doing a FABULOUS JOB - don't you? Thanks again, Diane!
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you out there who have taken my online classes! Your support and enthusiasm means so much to me...a sincere thanks to you all.

This was a wooden jewelery box that I took from Corrinne at one of the PHAP meetings, so that I could alter it. I decided to alter it in a 70's theme, pulling pop culture images and memories and from my preteen and early teen years. The colour scheme was from my childhood bedroom. I am using the box as a place to keep some keepsakes from those days. I have never attempted anything like this before, but was thrilled with the end result.
