Long Distance Birthday Love

           Today is my sisters birthday!!!  Sadly we live in different states but I was able to make her a few prezzies to send so I felt like I was there.  I've been doing quite a bit of cleaning that isn't anywhere near done but it feels good to be getting rid of extra stuff.  I also have had a chance to finish a few art projects I started a long time ago.  I had cut down one of Truman's old scotch containers to hold my paintbrushes and I finally got around to altering it to match my studio, or the idea I have of my studio anyway.  Then I was inspired to finish an art journal page I started over a year ago!  Binge watching all those art journal videos on YouTube is paying off for inspiration.
           Now that the holidays are over I was sad to not be getting anymore packages, who isn't?!  So I decided to fix that problem by signing up for a Valentine's Day secret sister swap.  I'm having fun with my homemade item and I already did too much shopping for her of course!  Not much else happening here but I thought a quick post with pictures might be nice.  Happy birthday Melanie!!!!
