I'm so busy.....but not with art!

It's pretty sad to go months without posting anything artsy. Well, folks...that's called home construction! We've been doing tons of work on our house...with only minimal progress to show for it. Thank goodness we are finally getting to the point where we can close up the interior walls and get started on the fun stuff! Floors, cabinets, tilework, paint! Check out progress HERE

Needless to say, creative pursuits have taken a back seat to the house and motherhood. The pregnancy is going well, although not as pleasant and comfortable as the first one. Most of the morning (all day) sickness has passed and now I'm just expanding to unbelievable size. The most exciting part is that we have our 20 week ultrasound next Monday and will find out the gender of the baby! Woo hoo!

I picked up a bunch of little bamboo tiles and decided to give altering them a try (pictured above). They have been tons of fun and very easy, since they are quite small measuring only about 3/4" x 1 1/2". I have started over 20 of the little guys, most of them a series of little houses. I've also tried decorating some with embossing powders, wrapping others in dyed tissue paper, and some with just plain ol' acrylic paints. I'll post pictures of the completed projects soon!
