~just some fun stuff~

I just finished up a couple of things that I put up in my art room! The "s" is for my name and I may end up just having enough stuff to use on my entire name! I'll see!!

**In God We Trust**

I have just finished a collage that I added to my website. This piece was centered around a picture that I took, shortly after 9/11/2001, of Independence Hall in Philadelphia. As we were walking, I noticed the American flag beyond the tree and thought it would make a nice picture. I copied the picture off on the computer, added some stamps from a few years ago, along with some other papers and items, and this is what I came up with! My husband made the frame for this and I used crackle finish to complete it. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful country! God bless!!

**Mom and Me**

What do you do with a styrofoam head? Well, this is mine! I had some of my mom's jewelry (the necklace is hers), some of my jewelry (the earrings) and one of my mom's scarves that she used to wear. I decided to put them all together, add some "makeup," eyelashes and some eyebrows, and here she is!! I wanted a way to display some of my mom's personal items, which I am lucky enough to own now! Thank you, Mom!! I think this is a perfect match!
