These are two ornaments I made for the Zetti Holiday Ornament Swap I am hosting in the Zetti Zoo Yahoo Group. The ornaments are not necessarily supposed to be 'Christmas' ornaments since not everyone participating in the swap celebrates Christmas. Everyone was open to interpret what their version of a 'Zetti Holiday Ornament' is and go from there. It is my first time hosting ever in any group. Participants only needed to make 1-3 ornaments (they get the same number back as they sent in), which isn't such a huge and stressful commitment as some of the other swaps around are. I know that I can't participate in anything that I have to make more than just a few things in because I don't have the time and I get very stressed out! Both started as plain paper mache ornaments that I obviously altered A LOT!!! They both measure about 7-1/2 to 8 inches in length (including the hanger pictured). Please feel free to leave me a comment letting me know what you think of them. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season so far! :)

Been super busy lately, as I'm sure you all are too! Here are a few pictures of my girls from a big party for my 13-year-old
nephew last weekend at this beautiful Hyatt hotel ( We had a blast! We all love to dance, so it was a lot of fun! Hope you all have a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving! :)

This is a 5 x 7 collage called 'Do You Really See?' This piece is a bit darker than the others I've been making recently. Someone I love very much is suffering from major depression right now. It hit her like a brick wall and she's never gone through anything like this before. It is very hard for me to see her like this, but she is getting help so hopefully we will see a positive change soon. I made this piece as I was thinking about her.

We went here ( after the CPR class for some awesome desserts too! I must go to bed now. I have to get up really, really early tomorrow! :(

I'm going here for dinner tonight with a co-worker and our boss. I will probably have my usual...the Mesquite Broiled Shrimp on a Skewer. It comes with so much extra stuff too and it is all soooo good! Then we will be off to meet another co-worker and take a CPR re-certification class that we have to do every two years. Gotta go finish getting the house picked up! Bye :)

I was lucky enough to have time to make some art yesterday. This is a 5 x 5 piece on a gallery-wrapped canvas called 'The Gift that is Thee'. Did you get a chance to make anything this weekend? :)

I've been tagged Megan and Angie now I must to say 7 random things about myself. Here they are:

1. In college, I sold my saliva for $ (it was for dental research).

2. I am really good at playing 'Wheel of Fortune' when it's on TV and I happen to see it. My husband wants me to go on the show!

3. I love to wear fun/funky socks (if it isn't flip-flop weather!). I have some fun ones on right now as I write this :)

4. I am addicted to Diet Coke. I do not drink any coffee, tea or alcohol.

5. I am in quite a few football pools (for NFL).

6. I cannot resist warm, right out of the oven cookies, brownies, cakes, etc.

7. I wear my hair in a ponytail about 99.9% of the time because I get hot so darn easily (and I haven't even hit menopause yet)!

Here are the 7 people I am now tagging to tell us 7 random things about themselves:

Theresa -
Heather -
Patti -

Bye for now! :)

Believe it or not, I actually made some art! This is a 5 in. x 7 in. gallery wrapped canvas called 'Wander'. It says 'it made her feel wonderful about life itself.' I know it looks very busy. For some reason I always think I have to put 'more' on. It sure felt good to make something! Enjoy :)

I still have not had any time for making art, but I've been having fun making some edible 'art' with my 2-year-old. One of our neighbor's gave us some Fun Doe ( and we have been making all kinds of silly cookies. Now that Halloween and all the festivities leading up to it are over I may actually have some time this weekend to play with my art stuff! :)
