Paint Party Friday--Art Journals Journey and August heART ---August 29, 2014

Day 29
It's been a "SUPER" busy day here so far :) I was wide awake at 2:30 am. One of those things that happens when I take a nap the day before. I tossed and turned for an hour trying to go back to sleep but finally gave in to the fact that it just wasn't happening. 
So I started in on the apples again... cleaning and slicing so I can cool more applesauce. Once that was on the stove... worked on a Inspirational Quote Card and when that was done I decided O wanted to do ate least one more Frida for the Art Journals Journey challenge. 
Here's the card...for August heART...
 It's a "doodle" on a "doodle" :) 
The Frida art is for 
Art Journals Journey

Paint Party Friday 
This is how far I got before leaving for therapy at 7:30am .....

Did my therapy for 90 minutes.... the next person was a no show so we kept on working... I'll probably pay for it tomorrow :)  After therapy I ran a couple of errands and came home to finish Frida ♥

All that is left to do is decided which quote I want to put on the page too. There are so many to choose from. ♥ 
I've mowed half of the yard this afternoon and I think I'll save the other half for Bobbo... The leg and back are telling me I've pushed my luck today so I quit...well except for that applesauce that will have to go into jars and in the water bath canner.  
I've also worked a bit more on the painting on wood....
 ...she's coming along...

  1. My oh my, have you been busy! Love how your painting is coming along, and your Frida is beautiful again, and you have made me very happy with her! Have a restful weekend, hugs, Valerie

  2. I'm really lovin' your cards.
    And doodle on a doodle ~ awesome!

    And, for the record, super busy in my world today too. Been Doing nonstop since about 5:30 this morning. I'm gonna collapse when I get home from the studio (in about 3-4 hours). And enjoy it!

    Merry creating!

  3. Love your cards Carol and your Frida is perfect. I've got 3 big pumpkins to cook.Then I will add brown sugar, a little salt & pepper. After it cools, I'll freeze it for little pies or just sweet pumpkin tarts later on this year. Nice work and you have been very busy. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Wow, you have had a very long and active day, Carol. I like your Frida and enjoyed seeing how you got from step A to B to C, etc. I also woke up around 2:30 and couldn't go back to sleep for about 2 1/2 hours. When I woke up it was after 9 and you had been in therapy for quite a while.

  5. Fabulous! I especially love the doodles. So creative! :)

  6. Wow you accomplished a lot and your Frida is wonderful...I just love all your doodles and that font is amazing...good job!! A great visit!

    Hugs Giggles

  7. Cool doodle! Frida is lovely. I am not happy when I do that no sleep thing.. it hits me at 3 or 3:30!

  8. wow Carol, you sure did have a LONG day! I hope you got more sleep after this. Beautiful Frida!! Can't wait to see the results of your wood painting.

  9. wow, making apple sauce in the middle of the night!? You're brave! And then doing all that painting.... You sure were busy! Frida came out wonderful, and I'm sure you'll find the perfect quote to put next to her! Hope your next night's sleep will be better!

  10. Oh ! All this is AMAZING! What great artwork! I love to see your steps for Frida! Have a great weekend! Hope you feel better ! Thank you so much for this new interpretation of Frida for AJJ Carol!

  12. Wow you sound like you are full of energy and your art shows it. Frida is beautiful. Well done. The ballerina is elegant. Don't over do it. Sit down and paint for awhile. LOL
