I am excited. Am I the only 8X8?? Hope that isn't a problem.

Janet

I don't mind doing a 8 x8 but I find the smaller format suits me better :)

I hope you can use your contact and theme schedule. Pat replyed a PM back and I got a look at the schedule. It seems in this email program sent notices, the spaces are filled in. If it is a mess for you please let me know and I will PM you on your personal email address just give it to me. I even altered the Word document to about a two-thirds of a sheet to it could be presented on one page. bummer.

livia
07-22-2008, 06:21 PM
I just wanted to let everyone know that my theme is "scapes". They can be city scapes, neighborhood scapes, market scapes or anything you see around you, outside of course.

If you want to do a different landscape that would be okay too.

I can't wait to get started.

lilbad
07-25-2008, 06:49 PM
Jan, thanks for all the hard work on this swap. I just want u all to know that I am so happy to be included! My mind is swirling with ideas! My preference list should say "Quirky" houses, not quirly!! And, remember I am 8x8. I think all of the rest of u are 6x6. Is that correct? Let the painting begin!!

Jan
07-25-2008, 09:27 PM
I wondered about that house wording Lil but I think we got the idea. So glad you are here with us. Yes, the page sizes are correct and like you I too am researching themes and s l o w l y getting ideas formed as to how I will approach that theme. Paints are still dry.

livia

Well I think this round is going to be even better than the last one. Everyone is doing such a super job. I can't wait to get my pages from Terry, they are just toooo wonderful.

I going to whine now, so if you don't want to hear me just skip over now. We are working on the last bit of plaster work on the walls. I am getting a little frustrated with my perfectionist spouse who wants perfectly smmmmmooooth walls. The dust is just everywhere from sanding. We are so close to completion on the remodel but so far too!!

lilbad
08-05-2008, 10:37 AM
livia, I sympathize with u. We are in construction as well and I hate the mess! Hang in thre. This, too, shall pass!

I received two lovely sheep paintings from Terryart today. Luckily, she had them packed securely as our post man bent them to fit into our mail box. Grrrrrrrrr. I have totally lost faith in our post office after three different envelops were shredded. These were not damaged in any way, but it was a miracle!!
Thanks TA for your darling paintings. I love them.

Jan
08-22-2008, 09:27 AM
Will watch for pages from Crafter. Thanks for the heads-up on mailing your pages Lil. I'm working on pages too, hopefully will get them off next week.

Jan, your pages were posted today. I will put them in my gallery when you receive them. I used liquid watercolours for these. I'm not sure how much I like them, but they did do what I wanted for these pages.

lilbad
08-27-2008, 10:55 AM
TA, my post office is on my SH-t list! They have shredded several of my envies and lost 2 cards. I talked to them and showed them the thickness of a single atc in a greeting card. There shouldn't be a problem, they say! Ha, I say!! Anyway, so glad yours were well packed and not ruined. They are so cute!

08-30-2008, 11:26 AM
Good to hear from you Pat. I agree these last two weeks have been so busy with Fair's, grandkids, yard work and canning. School starts on Tuesday and that poses another time challenge for me.
I have Livia's and Lil's almost done and will post early next week.

Jan

Here are journal pages for OrganicMama and Jan. I know Jan's is super early because I thought she was next on the list, I should have looked. Anyway I am afraid it will get lost or messed up so I am mailing it early.
The one on the left is called "An Asian Market" it is inspired by the artist Hiroshighe.
The one on the right is called "Peaceful Place". It is a view from the mountain top of Mt.Nebo, Arkansas. We just came back from a week of de-stressing.

Janet
09-25-2008, 01:54 PM

Thank you so very much for this treasure.

A good, deep nap today from the toddler. With the house mostly clean and dinner in the slow cooker I had time to finish crafter's pages.

I will mail them...probably on the 3rd (payday).

I'm an herbalist by trade, so had to play with that a little. All the information is accurate, and I grow all of the plants in my garden to be used as medicine for my family and my clients.

Jan
09-26-2008, 09:36 PM
Me too but in container gardens. Basil, parsly, chives and celery are my crops. I dry and save them and also the seeds. Wish I was as knowledgeable as Organic is. Love the pages.

Ooohh. Lovely. I am almost ready to send out your children's lit pages.

I wanted to finish because I get so busy at holiday time and I didn't want to stress myself out. Good luck finishing.

Thanks Pat, check in on us once in a while. Your pages are terrific what a gift you have been to us and this group.

Howdy,
Just wanted to say hi and that I am working/struggling on story book pages. They are coming along-----slowly!

OrganicMama
11-15-2008, 06:57 PM
I got beautiful pages from Pat. Yay! I love my geisha girl.

And oops. I missed the mail today, so I will get Pat's pages in the mail on Monday.

Janet

I received Pat's fantastic flower pages today. Wow!!! they are gorgeous, I'm so happy :)

I'm so glad you like the pages. I just got some great "Brothers Grimm" from Taylor. Wonderful! Thanks so much!

I just wanted to say thanks for all the great art I have received from this group. I am still figuring out how to bind them.

I will be having knee replacement in January then the other knee hopefully in September. So my art time will be limited for a while, plus there is an art project that I have been wanting to work on for a long time. It is a fabric book that is Asian inspired. I will post pictures in my gallery as comes along.

You ladies have been very inspiring for me and I hope that we can swap one/one some journal pages or atcs.

Thanks Jan for being a great host!!!

Jan
11-22-2008, 11:44 AM
Livia, your posting gives the feeling you are done, are you done with your pages or will you be able to finish your swaps for this group?
What is everyone's feeling about staying connected for another round or would you like to just connect for one-on-one trades? I do feel we should open this up to others who may participate. Any suggestions?

lilbad
11-22-2008, 12:17 PM
I am open to anything. I have one more to finish and then will be done. I have enjoyed working with u all.

Janet
11-25-2008, 08:24 AM
Livia's pages arrived today. Absolute beauties!!!! The little animals are adorable. Thank you so much Livia :)
I haven't had much inspiration for art, the weather has been so dark and the 'winter blues' got me!!! Hopefully I will be back to it soon.
Yes Jan, I am open to suggestions if everyone wants to keep the group together.

OrganicMama
11-25-2008, 10:55 AM
I love doing this, but I don't think I am in for the next round. So much going on here! But I sure am happy about everything I have done and received thus far.

I'm working on several art projects this weekend, including journal pages - my husband is giving me a 'painting date' with myself this Friday AM. He's going to take the toddler out for a nice long adventure.

Jan
11-26-2008, 12:24 AM
Ooooh Organic, now that is some gift.

Just keep me in the loop. I am up for another. I'll keep checking in.

Sounds good Pat.

Janet
12-01-2008, 10:59 AM
Just putting the finishing touches to lilbads pages. I had to wait for inspiration but, I am pleased at how they turned out. Must have patience whilst they dry, then do the backs. I'm so pleased to be back making art, it's been a tough few months.

Janet
12-01-2008, 11:48 AM
Lilbad's pages, they are darker than the scan. These will be posted this week.

lilbad
12-01-2008, 01:53 PM
I am thrilled and amazed with these pages. Thank u so much!!
I am having surgery tomorrow. Hopefully, during my recoup time, I can finish my last pages. What did we decide about continuing??

OrganicMama
12-10-2008, 07:55 PM
Done and done! I finally buckled down and finished pages for livia, Jan, and lilbad. They will be in the mail in the next few days when I go to the post office. They are posted in my gallery so you can look if you want, or wait and be surprised.

Jan
12-10-2008, 11:27 PM
Oh Organic I'm jealous, just cannot find the time to finish Terri's and Pat's. I have both in process. You ladies are amazing, even finding time to create Santa hats on sheep, imagine that. Good luck Lil with surgery, keep us posted.

lilbad
12-10-2008, 11:59 PM
I came through the surgery just fine. Had a lot less pain than i expected. Hopefully, this third surgery on one knee will be the final.

Jan
12-11-2008, 08:39 PM
Hopefully....good news Lil.

Crafter, the lovely Irish paintings arrived safe and sound yesterday. They are even prettier in person. What a wonderful addition to my album!

I was planning on taking everything to the post today, but there is 3" of snow down (here that's probably as much as we will get all winter) and I'm not good with driving in snow. I'd rather be out in it with my toddler. So I will post sometime this week. Thursday at the latest!

lilbad
12-15-2008, 12:24 PM
OM, no kidding. I am not going out in this either unless it's just to take pictures. Your little guy is going to love this!!

Jan
12-15-2008, 08:41 PM
Hey Hey you powder puffs. We have 6 inches of snow and ice with wind chills at minus 70 below zero. Some school closings but in our area the kids went to school on time. Our roads are all ice because chemicals do not work when it is this cold. We will get snow tomorrow and temps will be colder by the weekend. Our ski slopes are flourishing as are the snowmobile trails.

OrganicMama
12-16-2008, 12:32 AM
"ice with wind chills at minus 70 below zero"

Which is why I live where I live. Snow once or twice a year is fun. More than that is just excessive.

Jan
12-16-2008, 11:57 AM
Good choice Organic.

OrganicMama
12-17-2008, 11:00 AM
We made it to the post office yesterday - so those three sets of pages are speeding their way through the postal system to all of you.

Organic Momma, the black sheep arrived safe and sound yesterday! Thanks for completing my flock--he's adorable.

Jan
12-19-2008, 12:16 PM
Received Organic's beautiful "peace" page. Gave me something to think about. Thanks for the gift and surprise in the mail.

Pamitha

If you all go another round, I would LOVE to join! Please let me know!

Jan
12-22-2008, 10:48 AM
Will do Pam. Posted Terry's and Pat's pages today. Wishing each of you a season of celebrations, time to stir up your creative spirits and enjoy the blessing and love that surround you. Peace ladies.

I was lucky enough to receive beautiful Fall pages from Jan...so wonderful! Just like getting another Christmas gift!

Jan
12-31-2008, 12:24 PM
Whew! They finally made it. That was my final farewell to Fall 2008 as we have had snow almost everyday since the end of November. Here are Terry's pages.

OrganicMama
12-31-2008, 01:46 PM
I sent livia's city scape on the same day I sent Jan and lilbad's pages - but haven't heard if it is safe yet. Please let me know!

Jan
12-31-2008, 02:51 PM
I would be concerned too Taylor. Just sent Livia a PM. I know she is having knee surgery in January, she posted that on our thread. Will keep checking on her thanks for the reminder.

livia
12-31-2008, 04:51 PM
Sorry I have not checked in. I started temporary part time job for physical therapy. My doctor said I have to walk at least 2 miles a day. Needless to say it over took my life over the holidays. Retail will do that !!! I did not even have time to go on my computer, needless to say my email account had over 200 messages. My time management needs to improve in 2009.

I did receive a wonderful addition to my journal. It was nice to get it so close to Christmas. Thank you Organic Mama.

Jan
01-01-2009, 04:27 PM
Thanks for the update Livia.

I still am in a quandry as to my last pages. Need a muse kick in the pants!

Jan

Here it comes Lil-*-*-*-*-*-! I get American Art Review and sometimes looking through that moves me on in a creative vein.

lilbad

Well, it's the nursery rhyme thing that is throwing me. I have had several dif. ideas, but am not good at drawing characters. I shall continue.....lol!!

I'm still trying to find inspiration for 'Japanese' pages, but I intend to make a start today.

01-08-2009, 07:57 AM
Lilbad - I checked out your gallery and your art is beautiful. You don't have to do faces. Do what you love to do. My topic is children's literature, poems etc. You can paint a landscape for me. I'd love that.
Pat

Robert Louis Stevenson, Emily Dickenson, and many other authors have done wonderful and enduring works about nature that are so wonderful! Also, I seem to remember some really lovely little cards based on the art work of Eric Carle - another children's classic.

Ladies, please be patient with me. New Years day when we started up our tower computer it had crashed. It was an older computer. We are now in the process of purchasing a new computer but it will take some time to get all files and everything transferred. I have a new laptop computer and two days later it lost some files on the hard drive so it too is in for repairs, hopefully it will be back the end of this next week. Just know I am thinking of you.

lilbad
01-10-2009, 02:33 PM
O, the joys of computers!! We just spent $$ on a laptop, router, and hook up. DH pulled out what little hair he has left and finally got the Nerds into do it! Hang in there. lil

Jan
01-13-2009, 03:05 PM
I'M BACK! The laptop is home and working great and we are waiting for delivery of a new tower which will bring us back to some computer comfort zones.

Janet
01-14-2009, 03:01 PM
Welcome back Jan. So pleased you are all sorted now :)

Jan
01-14-2009, 04:04 PM
Thanks Crafter. Are you staying warm over there? It is 27 below zero here today brrr.

Janet
01-14-2009, 05:56 PM
Grief!!!! I thought it was cold here but I daren't complain now. Our temperature has been around the zero for a week. We are so daft though, must of us don't dress for the cold weather.

All my pages are done. Are we continuing? Hope so.

Jan
01-19-2009, 07:09 PM
We need input from others to see if we continue. Lil those pages are wonderful even if Mary was contrary. Is that right?

lilbad
01-19-2009, 10:17 PM
Ya, I said I was having problems and she said I could do a landscape!

Jan
01-19-2009, 10:20 PM
Sounds good. Also a reminder that Pamitha would like to join this group if we choose to continue.

pschafe1
01-20-2009, 07:01 PM
I can't wait to see my pages in person. They look lovely. I am willing to continue. Don't hate me, but I got a sunburn last week and played 4 rounds of golf. I missed the horrible weather we all seem to be having. Does everyone change their themes each time?
Pat

Pamitha
01-21-2009, 01:32 AM
Lilbad, Your pages for Pat are BEAUTIFUL! You did a great job.
(Yes, I'm still lurking hoping you will all do another round and I can barge onboard!)

lilbad
01-21-2009, 02:20 PM
I hope we do another round, too. Glad to see u here! Thanks for commenting on my journal pages!

OrganicMama

I got gorgeous pages from Crafter! I love them. I have such a pretty journal!

Jan
01-21-2009, 05:28 PM
Pat that is the "players" choice to pick their theme and it certainly can change each time I think many of us have done that. Welcome back, no apologies for the sunburn sounds like you had a great week.

Janet
01-21-2009, 05:37 PM
I still have one to make for Terryart. Can anyone give me a clue on Fall flowers? I cannot paint pumpkins, I can't even look at pumpkins :)

lilbad
01-21-2009, 06:25 PM
Any orange or rust flowers: sunflowers, zennias, mums. What about a fall tree scene?

Jan
01-22-2009, 10:35 AM
Tree with colored leaves, scarecrows, harvest scenes.

Janet
01-22-2009, 05:34 PM
Ahhhh!!! thank you for suggestions. My mind is hibernating somewhere :D

Jan
01-24-2009, 11:13 AM
Is everyone warm and safe? Pat have you adjusted to a cooler temp? Livia has been so quiet, hope her surgery went well. Love hearing from you ladies.

lilbad
01-24-2009, 04:05 PM
All is well here. I will be gone from Jan 26th through Feb 11, so don't have any fun without me!!! Aloha!

Oh you lucky lady, just to be able to be outside and feel the sun on your skin. Enjoy every moment, you will be missed Lil.

Jan - sign me up for another round.
Pat

Jan
02-06-2009, 09:40 PM
Will do Pat. So far Pamitha, Pat and myself are in. How are you coming with your swaps ladies? A few of us are done but it has been very silent around here.

Janet
02-06-2009, 10:11 PM
I need to re-do Terry's. I'm not happy with the ones I did. Hoping to get on them this weekend.

Jan
02-07-2009, 03:50 PM
Thanks for update Crafter. No hurry.

Janet
02-13-2009, 09:06 AM
Terry's pages are done and in my gallery. I can't post until Monday now.
Is the group staying together? I'm struggling with large watercolours just now and feel I want to do something different. Is anyone interested in doing acrylic chunky pages?

lilbad
02-13-2009, 12:33 PM
I'd love to stay in the group!! Started a new watercolor class before i left on vacation and am inspired!

Jan
02-13-2009, 06:55 PM
Welcome back Lil, hope you are rested, warm and full of creative memories. So far Pat, Pamitha, Lil and myself are in for another round. I'll pm those who have not posted to the thread lately to see where they are on their creative journey plans. Next month we will complete this Round three journey, hopefully. Some have been very quiet.

lilbad
02-13-2009, 08:25 PM
Pamelacolors is a wonderful watercolorist. Maybe she would be interested!

Jan
02-13-2009, 10:15 PM
Thanks for the suggestion will invite her after I find out who else is interested.

Janet
02-16-2009, 05:38 PM
Terry's pages were posted today :)

lilbad
02-17-2009, 06:51 PM
Crafter, I'm not sure what acrylic chunkies are.

OrganicMama
02-19-2009, 12:54 AM
I've been here, reading and lurking. I think I'll sit out the next round - there is just too much on my plate with gardening beginning to come to the forefront. Have fun! And thanks to everyone for the gorgeous artwork. My little book is so lovely and fun to look through.

Jan
02-19-2009, 09:59 AM
Thanks Taylor for checking in, I understand for I'm counting my seeds too; had saved a lot of them from favorites last fall. They survived well in the fridge. Come visit us when you can we love hearing from you.

Jan
02-23-2009, 10:40 PM
Update time, I have PM'd Livia, Terryart and Organicmama. Crafter and Organic posted a response above, Terry responded that she would be interested in another round so look for a post to this thread which was my request to her response. Livia I have not heard from. If I remember right she was having surgery this winter not sure she has been online. We have enough anyways with Pamitha, Lilbad, Pat, Terryart and myself to run with it for another round.

Pamitha
02-24-2009, 02:07 AM
Oh, good! So are you starting a new thread? I must warn you that I may be having eye surgery (cornea transplant) this spring but my hope is that it will be fast, painless and that it will help me to see better. It should not effect me long enough to matter. Let's hope.

Jan
02-24-2009, 11:35 AM
Pam, I will start new thread, should we call this group something else other than "Water Wizards Round Four"? Our rotation for this thread will be complete end of March. With your surgery you only need to post to the new thread when you could not make a monthly set of pages. Just keep us informed, we would want to know what is going on with you anyways.

lilbad
02-24-2009, 11:57 AM
Let's think of a new name.

pschafe1
02-25-2009, 08:48 AM
I can't wait until our new round. I am going to be heading south for 3 weeks beginning March 1. I will be visiting friends along the way with stops in Pittsburgh, Nashville, and Gulfport MS. Don't worry if you don't hear from me until March 20.
Pat
I haven't thought of a theme. I really like literature, maybe not just children's this time, but including children's for those that want to. Okay? Oh 6 x 6 just like last time.

Pamitha
02-25-2009, 11:46 AM
Are you going to keep it strictly water media? Or will it be anything hand-drawn/crafted?
I like new names! Something magical again?

That Pat! She is always going places. I get to go places, too.... The dentist, the optometrist, the doctor....

lilbad
02-25-2009, 11:59 AM
Pam, it's watercolor themed art. Where is Suncrest? Are u near Eugene at all? There is a gathering here of act-ers on March 1.

Jan
02-25-2009, 06:06 PM
Sounds good, let's keep those "magical" wheels going in to magic title. Pat what are you thinking as far as literature?
