3 journal pages last night (finished! Yes! Got my groove on last night...)(Rub ons in various sizes, tape I found somewhere, red signo pen,Pentel Metallic Brush Marker (expensive but they last a LONG time), White Signo pen, black brush pen)
black brush pen (see above), white uniball (see above), Caran d'ache Neo Art watersoluble wax pastels, tape, Coffee Break Design stencils (note: some of you have emailed me asking where to find these...Frenzy Stamper has them in the store I've heard and Small Studio Productions has some on her site with more to follow!)
stuff from my ephemera stash and the black brush pen I keep talking about...

Yesterday was comic book day so we trekked on up to Meltdown comics where I found two books (ack!):
Box: The Evolution of Character Design
What Gets You Out of Bed in the Morning

Their website with more art here.

Last night at 10 pm, I had the urge to "clean" and put books away (you know, the ones that we all have stacked next to our bed)...I am cleaning cleaning cleaning and next thing I know it's midnight! Eeps! I will show pictures of my bookshelf space "revised" when I'm done. Suddenly there is much more room next to the bed for new books. LOL!!


Happy Birthday to my Dad today!!!

ya gotta love groovy 70's & extremely early 80's photos:

Oh my gosh, what a darling red haired family you came from! And how old are you, about 10? The 70's and 80's were like yesterday to me. You and your sister were both too adorable for words.

Ah for the good old days when the only problem we had was deciding which flavor we wanted!

I really have no clue where you are but I'll guess Kelly's in South Boston. Carson Beach, maybe?

Yes! Love the color-tone of Kodak pictures from the 70s/80s!

Happy Birthday Kelly's Dad!!! <3

Kelly: You must take a look at this book: All Wrapped Up! Buy 2 -- one to cut up, and one to drool over!!! I LOVE this book! I have it on my Amazon Wish List.

Happy Birthday to Angelica's Mom, too!

LOL Thanks Judy!
My sister and I are 2 1/2 years apart. Judging from how young she looks, I'd say I'm about 6 or 7.

Kelly Kilmer said...


It's not Carson beach but you are very close... ;)

Very very close!

Kelly Kilmer said...

LOL Jill I have that book ;)

enjoying your journal pages and photos from the 70's, 80's. i was a teenager/young mother during that time, loved the 70's...

i got my copy from the library of the book you recommended Principles of Uncertainty and knew within a minute I had to have my own copy which i now do. LOVE that book, so happy you turned me on to it!

Happy Birthday to kelly's Dad and to Angelica's Mom.

My final guess since I am not at all familiar with the area would be Castle island. Where ever it is it looks like it was a beautiful, fun family day.

Kelly Kilmer said...

BINGO! Roberta, email me your address!
Castle Island it is!!! :) (I said you were close and was going to give you the giftie ;) )
Thank you for playing! Ding!
