So busy doing…

So busy doing…

…That I’ve not been blogging! Very sorry as now I’m woefully behind. But one must make a start…

I am preparing for a festival called Celebration of the Arts held this coming Saturday. I only found out about it a couple of weeks ago so I’ve been madly creating. One of my students from my first class has graciously invited me to share her space free of charge. So kind of her! I didn’t even know it was happening if not for her!

Here are some of my wares (click to enlarge):

First tile, 3.5 x 3.5

Zentangle® tile, 3.5 x 3.5″. There will be about 50 or 60 to choose from, which can then be placed in a frame

Bookmarks , 7×10″ not including the laminate. Watercolor with  Micron black ink over top.

Most importantly, Keep Creating!


A Spookiness of Stones

They are very similar, cardoons and artichokes. You can eat cardoons – the stems – whereas it is the bud (the large globe) of the globe artichoke that is eaten.

What’s spooky about these nine stones?

Read this:  “She was already inspired by the endless variety of flint and the flint surrounding Le Pigeonnier was unique to the locality. Broken down for use in buildings and walls, the stones fell open onto moody landscapes of smoky greys and browns through which, in varying degrees of red and pink, flecks of precious chalcedony darted and danced, like sprites who had tumbled…

And when I wasn’t tangling, I was out in my motorized chair catching special moments in nature. 

Looking for apples

Beautiful cat who wasnt afraid of Bella, my dog!

Make a wish!

Apples everywhere…except our yard.

Sunflowers , from seeds dropped by the birds. I’ll save the seeds for winter when the birds can’t find seed as easily
