Strut Your Stuff #1

Strut Your Stuff Mondays

I planned on getting this out earlier today, but you know how that goes.  Clean-up duty from the boys on Spring Break, sales orders that need to be photographed and sent out, online marketing and a run.
BAM! There goes the day.

So during the run, I kept thinking that it would be great to see what other people are making in their wonderful lives.  I am always sharing what I do over here and I would like to see all your stuff too.  
Call it motivation, call it showing off; either way, 

Maybe it's a wonderful dinner, maybe it's a necklace.
Maybe it's something to decorate your house
Whatever it is, add your name to the McLinky and share whatcha got.

This is my artwork that I created this weekend.
The Song Divine, 8" x 10" mixed media on canvas

Named after the Indian prayer and motivation book.  I found the book at a yard sale. I had no idea what it actually was but after reading through it, it has some great words of wisdom that inspired the art piece.

I will leave this open all week so people have a chance to visit and share.

Perfect Margarita

Sometime last month was National Margarita Day.  We had so much fun we declared it National Margarita month in our house.  There is no better recipe than Jimmy Buffet's Perfect Margarita's. 
Enjoy and be careful.  Don't say I didn't warn ya!

Crushed ice
3 wedges lime
2 ounces gold tequila (Cuervo 1800)
1/2 ounce tequila (Cuervo white)
1 1/4 ounces Rose's Lime Juice
1/2 ounce triple sec 
1 splash orange Curacao 

Put all ingredients except the 3 lime wedges into a shaker. Squeeze 2 of the lime wedges into the shaker. SHAKE WELL! Rim outside of glass only with lime. Salt only the outside of the glass. Add fresh crushed ice to glass. Strain mixture over ice. Squeeze remaining lime wedge in glass.

New Art Series

I began this new art series recently. I started by drawing these woman images with long hair in several different poses.  They all have on flower somewhere next to her.  

I then colored it in with Prismacolor art markers, cut them out and place them into a mixed media scene.
I have had a lot of fun creating these scenes so far and think I will continue this series for awhile. I love working with all the layers and mediums to create these pieces.
