i've got my groove on ....

OH MY GOSH .... 
I AM SOOOO EXCITED
.... i have fonts
.....i've never had fonts on my blog before .....
....my blog has always been just what it was ....
....my mac and my blog didn't really get along .....
...and now they do.....yippee....yippee.....yippeeee....yipppeeeee .....yippeeee ...
OH MY GOODNESS ... you just don't even know how thrilled i am .... now i don't even know what i was about to blog about ....
...give me a moment ....
deep breaths ...hee hee whooooo...hee hee whooooo .... that lamaze breathing always comes in handy ...hee hee whoooooo .... 
ok .... i've regrouped, regathered, settled down to happy fontness ..... 
heee heee whooooo ..... 
ok ... 
i've got my groove on this week .... i have been a cleaning machine... what??? yes....i, e. beck, certified mess maker, have been on a cleaning binge ..... in preparation for christmas ... and laying a layer of christmas happiness all over my house (that's what decorating is, a layer of christmas happiness) .... but before you can lay that layer out you have to tidy up the place ... and i have been on a gung ho cleaning kick .. AND i have done art every day .... WOW...
oh wait ....WOW ....where did those time management skills come from .. who knows , but we'll take advantage while we can!!!! 
so, today, after cleaning out the library (that's what we call our living room becasue i think living rooms are archaic, anachonistic, and passe) .... after i cleaned our library, i went to allison's and i did ART ... oh wait ...i did art ... 
yippee zippy hooray ....
i did the backgrounds on these seven canvases ..... three longs, four squares .... one of the longs is four feet tall and just luscious ..... tomorrow, after my cleaning binge, i hope to do my stamping and stenciling on these so that they'll be ready for thinking .... ready for me to know what they are meant to be .... do any of them strike you as being something in particular .... does it look like it will be a mona? or a house? or a flower background ... time will tell .... 
in the meanwhile ....
let's celebrate blogger figuring out how to make blogging easier from this here mac .... 
YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I've been wanting to stop by and leave a comment for you - I've been reading your blog, but I've been so busy - you know how it is!

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you what a great idea it is to prepare so many canvases ahead of time. I tend to work on only one at a time, but I'll prepare many pages in my art journal and then work adding things when I feel like it or I'm inspired. I never thought to do that with my canvases!

I'm sort of new to my art thing - always been creative and only in this past year have I had time to really concentrate on my own personal art - learning as I go! =)

I love your artwork - so vibrant and joyful! =) I'm totally drawn to JOY! =)

Happy Advent!

Oh...one other question: do you buy your canvsas in "bulk"? I noticed that you have ALOT! =) Do you order them or just go to your local art/craft store?
