Spring Inspiration

March has been a bust, creatively speaking, I had good intentions but somehow the month has almost passed me by and I have nothing to show for it. I didn’t set a creative theme for March and I thought that I would finish projects that were left unfinished from last month and that was a…

Signs of Spring

Lily and I took a walk around the 2.5 acre wood this afternoon. It was wonderfully sunny, perfect in temperature and blissfully calm (no gusty winds). I don’t know who enjoyed the walk more? I enjoyed it because I have had invalid status for the past week or so after a slapstick comedy trip over…

Monday Mosaic: Birds, Bitter Cold and Coffee

We have known for awhile that another Artic Blast was coming and that this one would be the coldest one yet and it didn’t let us down. I actually prefer cold weather but I prefer that it not be so cold that I have to forego sleep just to make sure the house doesn’t burn…

FebCC Challenges Due…

It is that time again; time to post our February Creative Challenges and thankfully, this week was better than last. It is still cold outside (snow and ice are joining the party) and the entire household has had the sniffles. Lily chow slipped on the ice the other day and pulled a muscle and I…

Monday Mosaic: Scenes from the 2.5 acre wood

Last week was a bust on my end of the creative challenge and I am hoping that I can get myself back on track. It is incredibly windy here today which means there is cedar pollen blowing about and I have a bit of a spacey, balloon head feeling going on. It could be allergies,…

Mini Challenge #3 is Due…

and sadly, I have nothing to share. It was one of those weeks. I met with a couple of people on Monday that had lost cats that resembled the one that has been living under my porch the past few weeks. Sadly, he was none of the missing pets and is still living under the…

Go! FebCC mini #3…

starts…NOW! Get those creative juices flowing. Make, Bake, Create something. Think outside the box or re-visit something you used to love to do. Use what you have available, no need to buy something new. Last year, before Sus and I left India to come back home, I had decided I wanted less stuff cluttering up…

Saturday: FebCC mini #2

I was quiet this week, which actually had nothing to do with the FebCC or Valentine’s Day. It had everything to do with the 3 days of gloriously Spring like weather we had, unfortunately the grey, cold days of winter have returned. This week I made something quick and easy…and used up some scrap yarn…

Monday Mosaic: Ice and Aliens

It has been cold, colder than we are used to in Oklahoma which means that we are staying indoors more. I feel sorry for the outside critters so I have made sure that there is plenty of food to get them through the last few weeks of winter. The inside critters have been busy romping…

FebCC mini-challenge #1

It is Saturday, which means that our first mini challenge due date is upon us. Mine, is unfinished but I am still going to post what I have so far…I can and will finish it later. I hate not finishing things, it somehow makes me feel like a failure, and it is one of the…

Week 1 of the February Creative Challenge (FebCC)

Years ago, I attended a friend’s birthday party and another friend (that is a wonderful watercolor artist) painted a birthday card for our mutual friend’s special day. It was thoughtfully personal and I know that B cherished it because it was promptly framed and showcased. I wondered why more artist didn’t do little miniature paintings…
