Good to be Back in Blogland....Art....Free Image Tuesday.....

Did ya miss me? I missed you!!!!! I am so happy to be back and getting back into a routine. Mom's visit was awesome and the boys and I miss her terribly. She is such a fun grandma and spends all her time playing with the boys. They love it! Except for her getting sick, it was a perfect visit.

I spent yesterday cleaning out my art closet (really, it's my clothes closet, but who cares about clothes?) and I have come to the conclusion that I have too much stuff!!!! I better start making some art on a more regular basis and stop buying things! LOL!! I am making it a goal to end the spending and I am only buying supplies like glue, gesso or having copies made of photos. Really. Promise:) I am going to really try hard. I pretty much have everything I need right now. It's just hard to get past the "wants but doesn't need" thing I have going on right now. So my goal is less spending and more arting!!!! Here is the piece I just finished this morning.

Here is the free image. I don't know anything about this cutie except that the photo was taken in Guilford, ME. I think her eyes are fabulous! If you use her let me know and I will post your art:)

Tomorrow I am going to post and show you all the wonderful things I have received from the postman since I've been gone. I am blessed. It may take some time to get around to you all today, but that's my goal:)

Oh I am so glad you had a good visit with your mom. I am happy you are back too. I think it is part of the arting thing that you have to become a collector of art supplies.

Welcome back! So happy you had such a great visit with your mom!
Your art piece is amazing!
You know I get the "I wants" on a frequent basis and not only can it prove costly I am fast running out of room for everything. eeek!(ask me if that actually stops me?)LOL!
I have SO many projects waiting to be done I need a few extra hands!
You were missed!

Jamie, I just love your blog and thank you for sharing the great images!! I used the little girl you posted today on a project and it is posted on my blog. I am a novice so it is nothing great but I sure appreciate the image and the inspiration on your blog!

Oh yes..... I remember those promises to myself well. All those "broken" promises of not buying more until I create more...... Stay strong.....if need be you can always call me and I'll walk you off the ledge at the flea market and art supply shop..... :)

Missed you! But it sounds like you all had a great time!!

I love this little girl - thank you for sharing. I like the eggs/balloons you have given her to hold on your work, that's very original.
Here's how I used her.
