Fun on Friday!

Happy FRIDAY!  It's been a week of asthma challenges for me, so I haven't been very creative.  But I am trying to find some humor in the situation since I can't do much of anything else. 
This sign was a gift from Shannon, the daughter of my dear friend Tracy.  Shannon knows that both her Mom & I are old Hippies who will always be Hippies at heart.  When she found this sign she bought one for each of us.  Right away, it went up on the door in our kitchen that leads to outside & to the basement.  It's a side door...not a back door...but it's as close as we have & the arrow is even pointing in the right direction.  It's been up there for a few years now...and it makes me smile every time I look at it...thanks, Shannon!

Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Ahoy Mateys!!!  September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.  I took this Pirate Personality Test & I'm the Cap'n!  And my Pirate Name is Landlubber Mad Arse...well, if I use Kitten as my name.  I liked this one best. 
Ye need to listen to this song...and sing along, ye wenches & pirates!
Be sure to shiver your timbers & don't do anything that will make you have to walk the plank today...but have tons of fun talking like a PIRATE!
Oh...and it's also the FULL MOON...the Harvest Moon!  What a great day.

More Pattern Play

Patterns above from 8.12.2013...flat watercolors on the vertical stripes & metallic watercolors on the horizontal ones.  I'd like either one as fabric.
I had some black gesso left over from painting a book cover, so I painted it onto a couple pages in my journal...then doodled with metallic Sharpies.  The facing page still only has the black gesso rectangle...haven't decided what to do there yet.
More patterns...with flat watercolors & the thin diagonal stripes are Sharpies.  These are from 8.26.2013.
Then I went back & added some bright colors to those stripes from the 8.6.2013 spread.  I like the bright colors with those black & white stripes.
I'm glad I started this journal...it's a fun distraction.  I drew a paisley pattern a few days ago...still need to color it in then take pix.  I'll play in this book when I feel I want to...no pressure...no worries.
