August typically isn't a great month for a flower show. So i keep sneaking in any thing i come across. today i planted mums, sunflowers and coneflowers. just the little bit made a huge difference on the garden appearance. the addition also used up all my little foot spacers. i'm not sure how i will get around in the garden now! lol!!!
Anyway, i am working long hours every day to complete Toad Hollow so it will be published and ready for october. i am still working on Impressionist Summer Cottage, but am in no hurry to complete it.
As of September, my focus will be on cheer obligations. i am in charge of cheer and homecoming decorum. i will be very consumed by this, as i plan to personalize and customize all the decor and memorabilia.
**********************Always busy! Always me!***********************
Please comment on which cover is more aesthetically pleasing for my next art book.
thanks! erin (glamorous time traveler)
A fanciful twist will be hosting a mad tea party july 12, 2014.
I think, ultimately, this on-line tea party will provide an opportunity for other website owners to visit others site. a way to mingle outside the box!
cheers luvvy! see you there. ; )

As you can see, i have made good progress on the pop n play castle. I'd say you would never know it was a castle! There is still more painting and stone-work to be completed. Now, if you are not doing anything to the back, then you will be very close to finish. However, the back is the secret garden. so the stone-work needs its mortar lines painted in and the garden will be partially painted and silks glued on. and a pretty blue sky. so stay tuned for more How-To!!!
cheers! It's a new year and the winds of change are a blow'in! It's been a particularly tough winter this year in michigan. the sort of winter that changes the minds of men (and women). I frown goodbye to grumpy old man winter and wave invitingly to lovely lady spring. and with it, the rebirth of a fresh website (keytomyworld.com). I am joyed to announce that i will no longer specialize in anything! I'm going rogue. I am far too curious and have far too many interests to commit to one artform. I want to broaden my spectrum for the fulfillment of life. Because really, everything i say and do is part of the web of life. I am officially a 'jack of all trades- master of none'. never fear my friend, i still enjoy everything i've done with Philosophers Stone Couture and Wizardly Fun. However, they will not be my main focus. I have every intention of being flighty, sporatic and moody. All for the sake of art, ofcourse! lol. I quit listing on ebay - too dog eat dog. I am now on etsy. where a proper artist belongs. so, i hope you drop by my blog from time to time to see what crazy thing i'm working on (still a nutter). TTFN -
