Chicken a la King

I re-created out an oldie but goodie for this month's postcard exchange. I don't rubberstamp as much as I used to, but I have great fun when I do sit down with them to. I enjoy humor and find that's what I usually create. I have stamps numbering in the thousands, having rubber-stamped since 1978, owning a store that sold them, and working at Stampa Barbara.  I'm whittling down, parting with many. I still use stamps for collage, textures, journal pages, and occasions of general silliness. My stamps are stained and well-used. I am a loose and free-wheeling stamper type and don't have the patience to keep them in pristine condition. They are still a go-to tool.

Rooster Elvis's suit is of course glittered!

It's been a long time

but not because I haven't been thinking about it. I wish I wish. BUT, I did the summer traveling to Italy, Paris, so. California...and totally redoing the art studio. Then I ran out of time to actually do some art.

Returned from a long weekend at Art and Soul in Portland which has rejuvenated me to the extent that I spent some time on my visual journal, although I should have been grading the hugest pile of papers you ever saw and deciding what to do in the classroom tomorrow. The way the economy is tanking, I may not get to studio "full time" for a few years - not next year as I hoped. That, and the dismal drowning of the Cubs in the playoff could bring me down for sure - except we have two new lovely ladies, 1- and 2- year old kitties named Rose and Ziggy. Since we had to put Wrigley to sleep in mid-September, we were needing some tiny things around our house, which had gotten way too empty.

Hope to have some things from Art & Soul up soon and to keep up better. To all the 5 people who even know I'm here ! (It's okay...not ready for prime time.)

New Occupants at 624

After painfiuly saying good-bye to our long-time pal, Wrigley, last month, we needed new life in our home. Welcome, Rose and Ziggy.

Home, James!
