• ICADs 20-25 – the Leftovers

    So, back when I first committed to ICADing, I talked about how creating these index cards would hopefully become a ritual, a part of my daily art practice, and I envisioned them being warm up exercises to get those creative juices flowing. While I have been making my cards daily, it doesn’t have a ritualistic […]

  • ICAD 11-13 and a Little of This and a Little of That

    I don’t know where this week went.  At work, our fiscal year runs from 6/30 – 6/30.  So, it’s use it or lose time for vacation.  I’ve had a day off here, a day off there – scheduling days that don’t conflict with court, or something due.  I’d like to say I’m being productive on […]

  • ICAD 2 – Day 10 – Suitcase

    So when Tammy emailed me a list of prompts, and asked me to be an ICAD hostess, I got inspired by one – Suitcase. I had all kinds of ideas. I tingled with ideas. I was going to make the card an actual suitcase, that opened, that had clothes inside. I was going to use […]

  • Prospect Garden

    Our house is the kind of house that should have a name. But it doesn’t. When we were buying it, we referred to it as Lemon Manor.  But, there’s already a Lemon Manor in Fairmount Park.

  • It’s Good to be a Hoarder – Icad3

    So, I know I said I wasn’t going to post my index cards every day – but I thought this card was a good example of why you should never throw anything out – even if your husband tells you you’re a slob, and that you’re making a mess –   First – the tag […]

  • Tornado? What tornado?

    So last night, with a tornado warning in affect, and the rain pouring down, I was lost in my own little world, up in the third floor craftroom, working in the new Misty journal. Huh, it rained? Anyway, my new thing is sketching things that catch my eye on Pinterest – that’s the first page. […]

  • iCad? I Can! – Index Card A Day 2

      Great, another challenge. Doomed?  Possibly – I spent an hour tossing the house apart looking for index cards.  I came to the conclusion that we gave them to my stepson to make flashcards. But, no worries – I just cut a 3 x 5 card from some cardstock, and no one will ever know. […]
