Here are some photos of the "Forever Marilyn" statue on display right now in Chicago, IL. It is based on the scene from "Seven Year Itch" and it is HUGE! I went on a bus trip to Chicago on 12-1-11 and this statue was the first thing on my list to see that day. It is located on Michigan Avenue in Pioneer Court next to the Tribune Tower. It is only on display until May 2012 and then another art sculpture will take its place.

My theme this year was "Masquerade" so here are photos of some of my decorations and the cookies I made. Thanks to Sue, Jane, Kathie, Carol, Joan and JoAnne for another fun time!
The Collage Sisthars group met on Saturday 10-22-11 and we worked on altered pumpkins. Lots of original and neat ideas, all of us using the foam pumpkins to alter. Here are some photos of the pumpkins and the artists working on them. A wonderful group and we all have a lot of fun learning and inspiring each other. We meet once a month on Saturday at The Fine Line in St Charles, IL with a different collage idea each month.

Here is the invitation I made for this year's Halloween Lunch. I have two lunch parties every year with the girls I used to work with. A Halloween lunch and a Spring lunch. Every year I do a theme, and this year's is "Masquerade".

Just changed my page image and added a new collage I have created using magazine photos. This one titled "Couture" They are so fun and addicting, you never know what you will end up with!
One on left is called "Hong Kong" main image is from an OPI nail polish ad, then added some great papers and image of shoes and jewelry.
On a beautiful August day I took a trip to Rotary Gardens in Janesville, WI. Partly to enjoy the beautiful gardens and weather, but mostly to keep my sanity since my older sister Carol was having Kidney cancer surgery that day. Her surgery turned out fine thankfully and it kept my mind off of it for minutes at a time. I took this great picture of these colorful andirondack chairs which at that moment were empty.
As I was taking this picture I was thinking how fleeting the summer is and what this same spot will look like in the harsh cold winter!

I belong to a wonderful group called "The Collage Sisthars". We meet once a month and learn a new technique. In January we had the workshop on Teesha Moore's journals. I just loved it and haven't been able to stop since. I gave it my own creative slant and create what I call "Couture Collage". A wonderfully relaxing and fun way to create.
I love high fashion, shoes, jewelry and with this type of collage I can use all of these images from Vogue, Elle and other fashion magazines. What fun!!
