It's available on Ebay starting today.
Her name is Fiona and she's the Shamrock Fairy! She'll bring you Irish coffee if you're good!The shamrock label is a copy of a vintage fruit crate label and the "Old Underoof" label is an advertisement for Irish whiskey. The collage has been created on 1/4 inch baltic birch wood and measures 4.5 by 6 inches. The entire collage has been sealed with a thin layer of 100% beeswax which has intensified the colors and given it a slight sheen.

These are the 2 collages I did. This is before I applied the beeswax.
Here they are with the wax applied. They are a still a little cloudy but that will clear up as the wax cures. I have to wait until tomorrow to buff them with a soft old t-shirt. Can't wait!I did better applying the wax with the brush on Little Red than the other one. The trick is to do it quickly and not to get too much build up wax on the collage.
Take this humorous little exercise in "what's in a name?".....it will give you chuckle! (I filled in how I would answer using my name)

The Blue Cosmo (hey, now that sounds like a real superhero name! Oh! I like that, I think that's what I'll start going by!)
SOAP OPERA NAME:(middle name, town where you were born)
Ann Greenville (she sounds like a nononsense type of chick that wears business suits and has her hair sprayed into a super coiffed style!)
STREET NAME:(fav ice cream flavor, fav cookie)
Chunky Monkey Sugar (wild, eh? Like a rappers name!)
SKANK NAME: (1st pet's name, street you grew up on)
Patty Lou Fredonia (not too sure about this one....is it skanky enough?)

So now that you've had your fun with your name, tell me what is a name that you just can't stand and why?

Over 1 billion chicken wings will be eaten today on Super Bowl Sunday! When I was young, my brothers and I would go to my aunt Dede's house on Super Bowl Sunday to watch the game and she would make a big pot of Chop Suey. Why Chop Suey on Super Bowl Sunday? I have no idea but it became a tradition. I suppose it was because my aunt made really delicious food but it was only things you could make in massive quantities.....like chili, chop suey and homemade mac and cheese! I miss that tradition.
A special box and felt candies for my friend Jacque in California!
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday......it's partly sunny here and almost 40 degrees which is a welcome change from 14 degrees!
