Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek Inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (3/21/12)

This week, Cindy and I are pulling down our suitcases, organizing our art supplies, and getting ready for a wild and crazy road trip to Sarah’s place in New York, where (my psychic tells me) one of us will steal a cop car, one of us will accidentally marry Heather Graham, and one of us will steal a tiger from Mike Tyson, but only to embellish with rhinestones and puffy paint.  Okay, just kidding.  As everyone knows, tigers only tolerate products by Tim Holtz.  At any rate, even though we’re counting the days until our trip, we’re still working faithfully.  We just wish the ants in our pants would pitch in.

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (3/14/12)

Spring is here, and the women of wonderstrange are hoping the good weather lasts for another couple of weeks, when we will be having our First Annual Board of Directors meeting in Upstate New York, complete with numerous PowerPoint presentations, agendas, break-out sessions, and brainstorming sessions.  (That’s completely true, by the way, except that you might want to replace “PowerPoint presentations” with “art-making fiestas” and “agendas” with “tattooing sessions.”) Until the 24th, however, we’re all still hard at work making wondrous things for you to give to your friends and relations, or even just to yourself.

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek Inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (3/7/12)

This week, we might need a high five – and a really enthusiastic one, if you can spare it.  Two of the three of us have been sick, one of us lost part of a roof in the recent storms, and one of us just discovered she is a scant two inches taller than her 12-year-old son.  (Hint: Ann is the only one with a 12-year-old son.)  Despite all of this trauma, we have heroically assembled pictures to share with you.  Why?  Because we love you.  M-O-U-S-E!*

 

*If you don’t get that reference, don’t ever let us hear you complaining about being old.

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (2/22)

This past weekend, Cindy and I had a spontaneous get together in Indianapolis.  We power walked along the Canal, near the location where all three of the wonderstrange girls will be completing the Mini Marathon in May.  We went out to dinner and made fun of the waiter because we’re classy like that.  We even made some Artist Trading Cards to swap online.  What we did not do was convert my house into Admiral Awesome’s Arctic Oasis of Artistic Astrogenius, although apparently, that’s exactly what Sarah was doing in New York.   If you’ll keep reading, you’ll soon understand.

Work in Progress Wednesday: A Peek Inside the WonderStrange Arts Work Rooms (2/15/12)

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but as you might imagine, we’re gearing up for the next big holidays, which are two of our personal favorites here at wonderstrange.  I am speaking, naturally, of “Be Nasty Day” (March 7)  and “Something on a Stick Day” (March 28).   We might even be nasty to or with something on a stick – but I’ve said too much.  Please just read quietly while I try to compose myself.
