We had these bookcases... and found this table to match...

Doorway into kitchen...

And this is the office... pretty empty right now...

You might guess what this POCKET door leads to...
Yup... The Bathroom!!!

Inside the bathroom... we are going to fix it up & buy a new toilet

Here is the kitchen... I am mostly moved in... in here anyway!
And yes... I have a gas stove!!!

This is the Hallway to the office guest bedroom & bathroom.

Here are the newly re-surfaced cabinets... I think they are beautiful!
This is the Backyard... Pretty huh! Garden & All!
This is the Dining Room... no table yet!

We are officially moved in... Well we still have some boxes to unpack! I thought I would post pics of my new house! There are some things we want to fix up but for the most part we love it!!!
Sorry there are no pictures of the outside yet (it was cold this morning!) and I still haven't taken pics of the soon to be studio! We are excited because my brother Noah is coming to help mike for the next few weeks on the studio! I am excited to have him around!
Well here are some of the pictures...
Mike and I keep saying we need to start a blog on just him and me and what we are up to but we cant think of a good name so if anyone has ideas... I am up for suggestions!

I am packing by myself...
Michael is in Telluride for 2 weeks! He is there for school and I miss him!
I also got blessed with the task of packing all of our belongings! Here are a few images of
the boxes I have packed so far! Do you want to know the sickening thing?
The boxes that I have packed that are pictured... the only thing in them are books!
The garbage bags are full of clothes! Crazy! And as you can see from the bookshelf there are
still more books to pack!
Well I better get back to it!
I am really excited for my new house!

Here is our House!

Here is a picture of our new house that we will own in approximately 24 days! I'm not counting or anything! Isn't it cute! It is really cute on the inside too! And the biggest perk is that the Garage/woodshop is bigger than the house square footage wise! New studio here I come!!!!
I am so excited I can hardly contain myself! April 21st is the big day! Wish us luck!

De-Mystified Marbled Paper!

So Michael and I were able to attend a marbling workshop at the U of U on friday and saturday.
We got there and the instructor began showing us these huge pieces of marbled paper with these intricate patterns. Then he preceded to tell us that by lunch time we would be able to do all of what he was showing us! We all laughed and said yah right! But sure enough! By lunch time we were all experts!(in a sense! At least we could do it!)
It was such a fun 2 days! It was like being in pre-school again... getting your hands dirty and making beautiful things!
Anyway here are some of my favorites!

I'm Tickled Pink!!!

So... Way back in the spring of '07 I went to a print conference and was approached by the Residency Coordinator from Highpoint Center for Printmaking. She asked me if I would want to participate in a show the following spring. I accepted and went through all of the necessary paper work involved. I was asked to send photo images of my pieces for reference and then to send the prints themselves at a later time. Upon hearing that my prints had made it to Minnesota she also mentioned that they had chosen my print for the postcard... well I was imagining that there would be a few other pieces by other artists put on the postcard as well. Two weeks went by and I got the postcards in the mail... And My print is the only one on the front!!!
Pretty darn exciting! I am really tickled pink about it! There were a lot of other really good artists that are participating in the show that I have actually met and one that I went to school with who is getting statewide attention! So anyway I thought I would share in my JOY!!!

Printers Picks

So I just wanted to post these images of a couple of pieces that I will have in a show in Minneapolis Mn.! Pretty Cool! Last year when I was at a print conference in Kansas City Mo. I was approached by a lady from the Highpoint Center for Printmaking and was asked if I wanted to participate in a show in February! Of course I said YES! So here are the images!
Its exciting and I hope that maybe I can sell them!

Quite a few weeks later!!!

So here is the personalized stationary that I helped a friend do for her sister.
I think that it turned out pretty cute! We ended up getting brown craft paper looking
envelopes to go with them. She said her sister loved it!
It was a quick, small, and fun little project! I enjoyed it!
