Icy Tuesday!

Good COLD Morning Everyone!

I'm watching the news this morning waiting to get out of the house.  Looks like the entire nation is in deep freeze mode!  Here in Central Texas, freezing rain, sleet and ice came right around drive time causing tons of accidents, backups and delays!  We just don't get things like this in our area very much.  When it does happen, it's best to just wait it out and delay getting out on the roads until it warms up a bit and the ice melts.  The news just sounds horrible! Car accident after car accident, school closings are coming in and changing from delayed to closed every minute.

Well...that's where I'm at!  Waiting for a bit to hit the roads and get to work.  Instead of picking up the house, I decided to blog.  Good decision right?  Wash clothes or lay in bed under warm quilts and type...hmmmm...

I've been having the best time working on some line drawings lately.  I think I will use them in my art journal then add some other media for a funky look.  I think they are coming out pretty cool.  I will show you some at a later date.  For now, I will share the scary things that come out of my head and into my art journal.  Ahhh, the art journal.  for me it's a place to release and play.  A place where I don't judge what I do, but let myself just experience.  Deep huh?  It's so good for me to just let go and play.  Mistakes are learning experiences and those experiences help make me even more creative.

With that in mind...Here's my Heart Head...LOL!

I guess I should get up and get started.  It will be an adventure to leave my safe, warm and cozy cocoon to head off to the day...

Have a safe and warm day today!  Thanks for coming by!

  4. stay warm, my daughter is spitting mad due to Pflugerville closing 15 minutes after school started, apparently the police department finally demanded it due to all of the accidents on the roads... oh, the joys of living in Texas... Making the most of it!

Wish I had been able to stay home today and craft as it was 10 below zero when I left for work this morning...yes, that's real temp....wind chill was actually 30 below! Those temps are unheard of in southern Ohio! This has been a bizarre winter.
