No Really, I Mean It!

This would be the perfect sign for my art business, as I love re-purposing junk into wonderful new things. I should put this out in front of my house. Oh, wait, the Homeowners Association might not approve. Oh well, I guess it's off to the yard sales and flea markets... unless... maybe... you have some junk!

Not Enough Memory...

Okay, so I finally did it. After years of using the internet for my website, blogging, shopping, yahoo groups, and the like... I got tired of trying to remember all my user names and passwords in my head... or looking for them on their little scrap pieces of paper scattered everywhere. So I made myself a Web Log!

I got this cool alterable journal from my friend Robin Beam and it was the perfect size and shape. I painted it with Adirondack Paint Dabbers, swirled on a little bling with Stickles Glitter Glue and even added the vintage plastic index tabs, colorized with Adirondack Alcohol Inks!

Pick-A-Photo Tuesday: Mmmmm...Mocha...

Mmmmmm... mmmmmm... mochaccino! So frothy and tasty. Couldn't you just dive right in? It's my every morning guilty pleasure. But at only 100 calories, I don't feel guilty at all! Yummy, yummy. Love that mochaccino!

No Rain Today

The weatherman predicted light showers for today. And although the ominous gray clouds loomed... alas, there was no rain to be had. I rather enjoy a good rainstorm every so often. It really has a cleansing power that washes away the old and makes everything seem new again.

Allow Me To Introduce Myself...

Hello! I am the artist Michelle Renee Bernard. Formerly known as Michelle Bernard Harmazinski—due to a separation from my husband—I have gone back to using my maiden name. Although I have made a name for myself under both personas, this is a new beginning for me.

I am an Art Director for Ranger Crafts by day, and am also a mixed media artist. I enjoy taking antique and found objects and making something new with them. Whether it's collage, assemblage, doll art or jewelry... I have a marvelous time creating and a tough time choosing between them all! You can see much of my mixed media art at
. Thanks for coming to visit!
