Tramp Art, like quilting, relies on using salvaged materials to create textures and patterns then piecing them together to make beautiful yet utilitarian
objects. While relatively unknown, Tramp Art was a wide-spread form of Folk Art that flourished in America between the 1870's – 1940's.

Life is Ducky...

after two days of shoveling snow
it looks like I can get back to creating again!

Our sidewalk was clean as a whistle till all the neighbors
decided to dig out their cars and now the snow
is more then six feet deep in places on our sidewalk.

Believe me, there IS green grass and flowers under all this...
Spring is

I am working on a couple of commissioned pieces....
a Hot Air Balloon and a Jack-In-The-Box
of Maggie (a very sweet Black & White/Tuxedo Cat).

I am also making a couple of "trinket boxes" which adds up 
to 348 hand cut pieces of wood! And 336 pieces will be chip-carved.

And so life is "ducky" around here......
Everything is getting back to normal and am so happy to be 
getting back in to TRAMPland and creating more...

Finally, today would have been my dad's 94th birthday.
So I thank him for being such an exceptional example of how to live and love
Happy Birthday Dad!
