I didn't realize it might be a little weird until Diane's eyes got huge. See, I color in my Art and Life books. Doesn't everybody? I can't stand to see them only in black and white so I tint the pages and covers with thin acrylic and then coat each and every page with gloss (use a credit card to spread). That way the pages sparkle and shine, the books take on added heft and you will find added pleasure in the workbook ... I mean zine.
This is what else I've been doing. I read on the treadmill and decided I needed some novels. Cormac's newest, which I recommend unless you are too affective this time of year to read about the Apocalypse and Michelle's book is a fun little read from across the water. Hers is lighthearted whereas Cormac is wonderful in a different way.
Diane and I had a wonderful visit yesterday and she sent me home with the goodies above that she created. She is amazing; has made 17 quilts and as I admired one yesterday I swore to myself, "just one more". She is a gifted therapist, artist, mom, wife, the whole nine yards. And a really fun friend. Thanks again, Diane.
Thanks too to Katie who sent this beautiful art to me and to Misty who remembered me with something special. I was the big cheese this year who barely got out a card here and there but for all of my negligence, I do think about my loved ones and friends all the time. Maybe my New Year's resolution should be along the lines of spending more time showing my love to others instead of just saying it.
Until I become a better person, I'll just have to say I love you dear readers and I sprinkle a little pixie dust of good wishes on each of you. Happy New Year.
