More New Collages

Here are a couple of new collages that I made last week. I love the old illustrations from the 50's. Check out her tiny waist! Ha.




Here's to hoping that your home fire is burning or that you are at least staying warm!

Warning, I'm going to brag: Right now I am enjoying a couple of days in Florida which is a welcome relief from the frigid winter we've had in Michigan. I'm here because my son was one of about 80 boys from across the country invited to attend the national Olympic Development Training soccer camp in Tampa. I dropped him off on Wednesday and pick him up on Sunday. He will be completely on his own with boys/coaches he has never met before. The level of soccer should be amazingly high. This will stretch him in more ways than one. Meanwhile, I'm not running, kicking, heading, trapping or scoring. I'm doing nothing, which in my mind, was equally well earned!

How great for your son. He'll be one tired kid at the end of the week. good thing you'll be well rested ;-)

Collages, whether digital or "real," that combine images of women from times when they were less than empowered with empowering messages always strike a chord with me. Nice work!

Enjoy your time of doing nothing.

Wow, aren't these the best comments to come home to! What is even better is that these kind things are being written by people I don't even "know!" :)

So to Jennifer: Yes, he's very tired but feels good about his effort. And, I love the verbage you used to describe the disonance between the image and the words. Thank you.

Karla: Welcome! Kentwood is very close by. Do you know about MIABA? They have a meeting coming up in a week or two in GR.

Gera: Wow, this is a first for me. I am honored to have been named as a Kreativ Blogger and glad that you find my blog inspiring. I've certainly enjoyed all your blog posts and artwork as well. Give me a day or two to catch up and I'll follow up. Thank you.
