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…

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…

2019 Creative Challenge

Somehow; somewhere I lost my creative mojo and I miss it. I took the month of January to get the last of the boxes unpacked from the move in April. Yep, it has taken me this long to get unpacked…sort of. The boxes actually didn’t arrive here until the last few days of August by…

The Problem with…

Time: There is roughly a week left before January fades into a blur and I find myself apprehensive about it. I had given myself this one month to get things situated and begin a new, life venture. In short, start living life more authentically rather than coat-tail ride my way through it. So, Why the…

Monday Mosaic: Cold Outside but Cozy Inside

The latest winter weather bypassed us, we didn’t even get a dusting of snow, but we did get gusty winds and frigid temperatures. Great weather for curling up with some knitting. The pets are curled up in perpetual nap mode which means I might just get something made. Here is to cold weather, endless cups…

5 Things to do Differently in 2019

Last year was a difficult year for me, filled with extremes and leaving me emotionally drained and by the end of it I found myself ready to make some serious (and drastic) changes. I have never been keen on New Year Resolutions and therefore have never made any attempt to make them but this year…

New Year, New Name, New Look

Last year was tumultuous to say the least. I made some difficult decisions and have decided that with a new year upon us I am going to start with a clean slate. The former Bedouin Boho Abroad has been renamed to @DaVinci’s Doorstep and with the new name we get a new direction. For all…
