happenings @ priti studio (& a give-away)

in the studio i have been working on new art journals.
this is the first cover
i liked it well enough, but
i wanted something more colorful...
and i remembered this book i've been saving for years
this book will be used in collaboration with
6 other artists

layering with tracing  paper
as i am writing this post 
outside my window it is snowing and blowing...
they are calling this a snow event 
what was wrong with the word blizzard?
we are to expect another foot or so...

i am reading a collection of stories

so many odd people and situations...reading this is a bit like being a voyeur.

i am wearing
the red robe is what i wear on top of everything else...
we used to call them house coats when i was growing up.
these days, people just over heat their homes...
i am frugal
and the pockets come in handy!
(you wouldn't believe all the stuff that's in them)

i am thankful for YOU!
thank you for reading my blog and leaving little comments to cheer me.
i would like to give this little
he(art) journal to one of you...
if you want to be part of the random choosing
please let me know in a comment below.
it is shiny metal-like...the pinkish-ness is not really there....
it is a reflection of my red robe :)
i'll choose the winner on monday...president's day.

happy valentine's day,
and hugs,

So are both covers back and front connected and you will just mail the entire thing together and we will add pages? I am still seeking my book, I hope to lay my hands on it this weekend. Much pretty lady in Red!

  8. You look great in that red housecoat - I just call it a gown. We do not have central heating in South Africa so one of those is an essential in winter. I just love my journal that I bought from you - I have to think of you often :D

  9. I happened upon your blog while looking for ideas for the art journal round robin I've joined. Your little book looks amazing, and I like the red house coat! :D

  10. You look quite cozy in your red house coat. I laughed at "snow event". We are having a "drought event" her in CA. Great beginning to your new collaborative project and of course I want to enter the drawing for your give away.
