ps it is SO good to be back HOME


I accidently spent 6 years in Portland.  Ooops.  It is a charming and beautiful city.  I loved my house and my neighborhood.  It didn't fit in the suitcase.

fini the bird girl, now what?

I have already started another.
Self-discipline is such a pain in the arse.  Are you good at it?

Doodle du week

I love digi collage.  I could work on it for hours.  I bought a stack of vintage wallpapers to paint on but can't.  Is that weird or what?  So, I photo'd a couple to use digitally.  I still really do want to paint on them.  Is that kind of strange? 

need puppy soon and

Buh Bye Portlandia!  I am going back to the land of permanent summer and wont miss the land of permanent winter.  Well, I might miss Georgie's and Ruby Ale.
Have you ever lived in the wrong place for you?

what to do

I really should take a decent pic of this.  It is 20x14 and a collage with an image transfer head, paper dress, spackle flowers and a little paint.

I am moving back to LA from Portland OR.  This is officially confirmed by the Chariot.  ;)
I am feeling kind of like a person again.  I may revive the blog.  I may stop hating on my dentist.  But then again...

I really love pastels and conte, which is what this is.  Then I printed it on an old newspaper.

I sure wish they had summer in Oregon.  It is the land of permanent one should wear socks in July!
