Playing catch up

Sorry I've been neglecting my blog for the last few weeks.  I have an easier time sharing things to facebook and instagram because I can just snap a picture on my phone and upload them right away.  I've seen bad reviews for the blogger app but I haven't tried it out yet to easily share stuff here.  However, if anyone knows how well it actually works, I'd love to hear their thoughts.  

Anywho, here's a few things I've been working on.  I finally finished the Jack the Kitten is Very Sleepy pages and sent them off so they can be printed, so that's one project off my list, but I can't really share all those pages with you (I may share some later after I find out which ones are okay to share), and I've been working on another project that I can't share the pictures of for some time, so I have been very busy, just not with anything much I can show you all yet, thus resulting in my long overdue neglect here.  :/

I have been having a lot of fun with my mixed media pages.  I normally jump into them on the weekends, since they end up making a pretty big mess, so I don't often have much to share on those either, but here's a few I've been working on that I really like.   


  I also tried my hand at painting another Iphone case.  I don't see that I shared the first one I made here, but you can find it on my DeviantArt page.  The first one was a bit...busy and overpowering.  I like the background but don't care for the lettering I added.  This time I decided to make it a bit more simple and I think it came out much better.  I actually really love it, even though there's a couple of things I don't like about it.  The first is the sealant I used on it is not that great, not for this type of project at least, as it still has a bit of a sticky feel to it?  Just a slight one.  I've used it for a bit though and it's held up nicely regardless, even with the hand made heart sticker I added as well.  The second problem I've had is from the case itself simply being too hard to get off of my phone when I want to switch it out.  I bought it at the dollar tree, so it was well worth it really for that price, but I would still like to find a way to fix both of those issues with it.  Regardless, I really like how it turned out and will definitely keep switching out with it when I feel the need to carry something a bit more colorful.  

     Lastly, I know I'm a bit late in posting this, but here it is nonetheless.   A little Halloween doodle for your viewing pleasure.  ;) 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the view.  ;)
