I live in Western NY state, and it's still snowy and cold, which means I have no excuse not to work in the studio next to the fire all weekend. Here are some sneaky peeks of what I was up to:

Been itching to try some litho type printing. Purchased a brayer a while back and some mounted linoleum. Boy that was tough. Heard that styrofoam was an option so I cut up our take out container and Viola! (like the flower), it worked!
Some of these were more successful than others, but I think it's a good first attempt and can't wait to try some more. ..hey, any excuse to go out to dinner, right? ;)

Do you have a Habitat for Humanity Restore in your area? If so, you should check them out!
Found some aluminum flashing (I've been painting it), 2 lovely vintage scarves, an entire set of acrylic paints, and some some crackle medium all for less than 10 buckaroos! Boosh!
Also, who wants to sing it with me? "Been caught *thriftin* once when I was five, I enjoy *thriftin, just as simple as that..." ;) (long live Jane's Addiction! !)

Yup! I've joined a roller derby league...My "official" official name is V-Gun Queen and I'm a bit obsessed with all things on quads. I feel great thanks to the exercise and continual challenges. I'm the oldest skater in our league and most likely the slowest, but it doesn't matter...it's a blast!!
