I want to take a minute to mention Tom Petty.  His death last week made me really sad.  He was from my town and even though I never had the opportunity to meet him, many of my friends went to school with him.  I loved his music and  "Room at the Top" has always been one of my favorite songs.  RIP Tom.

Have a great Monday and a wonderful week.

PEACE!

Art Journal JAZZ - Good Things and Bad

Welcome to Art Journal JAZZ

I created this page on September 2nd.  I had experienced a "pain in the butt" episode earlier in the day, and I decided to make it the subject of my journal page.  Then, I didn't upload the video because in light of all of the misery that people were experiencing due to hurricane Harvey, I felt that it was kind of inappropriate.  In the big scheme of things, my inconvenience seemed kind of "whiney".

Then, Irma happened......and Marie happened.

But, since it's almost the end of the month and I haven't put up an Art Journal JAZZ, I'm putting it out there.  Just be aware that from 1:58 to 29:59 you  might want to turn down the volume on the video because I'm complaining and complaining.




Thank you for watching!

I promise that I won't go on a ridiculous rant during my next page.

PEACE!

Let There Be Light......and, Finally There Was!



It's been a tough couple weeks.  First we were preparing for Hurricane Irma, then living for 7 days without electricity, a leaking roof, and a big tree hanging, threateningly, over our heads.  But, things are getting better.  The lights came back on yesterday and we had the tree taken down.

I video'd the tree removal and will be putting it up on YouTube in the next couple days.  I was amazed, fascinated, terrified....you name it.....while the guys were bringing the tree down.  These are some brave and crazy guys!!

I will have a project up on the 25th using 7 Gypsies and Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts products.

My Salvador Dali project for "Inspiration From The GREATS" will be coming soon.

And.......I need to get another Art Journal JAZZ page up this month.

As well as......getting my Monday videos back on a consistent basis.

I CAN do it!!

I hope that all of you that were affected by Harvey and Irma are doing ok.  And, any of you that are in the path of Marie....please be safe!

PEACE!
