A Little Break
I'm taking a little break and doing some work on my blog.
I hope to be back soon with some fresh ideas
and new work to share!
Just think - spring is on its way!!

Sketchbook and an Inspiration Board
One project from last week's sketchbook class
was making a collage picture from scraps of magazine pages.
I used a calendar picture of a scarlet tanager as the inspiration for my drawing.
Then I collected red and black areas of color from magazines, ripped
small pieces and collaged the different scraps together.
It was a fun exercise, but messy, and I finished it today!
And I'm still working on getting my sewing room/studio into shape,
so I made an inspiration board to get me going!
My goal is a warm, inspiring, organized space where I
to create. I'm so lucky to have a room of my own, but have so many interests
it's hard to keep all of my materials organized. The sketch in the center is my sewing table
which is in front of a large window. I'm looking forward to getting everything in order
so that I can go in, find what I need and get to work!
Does anyone else out there have trouble with being organized?
I hope that everyone who reads this has had a pleasant weekend!

Yet ANOTHER snowy day!
I'll start this post off on a cheery note -
Here is a woven ribbon heart I made last year!
Alas, I am not following through as I promised.
I'm finding it difficult to keep up with my heart-a-day idea
and seem to be finding it a chore.
And so, I hope you won't mind if I let it go
and just continue on with other creative pursuits.
I just got in from a trip to the grocery store and this is what my driveway looks like.
The old snow from last week's and Saturday's snowstorms
is dirty and ugly, so Mother Nature is sending us even more snow today
to freshen things up. Thank you - I think…
With it looking so bleak outside, I bought some flowers at the grocery store
to brighten things up inside.
Rosie is more interested in the plastic sleeve than the flowers,
but she does make a pretty picture!
I've been doing some sketching in my sketchbook...
and making plans to redesign my studio. I'm hoping to store supplies more logically
and make the space more serene and inspiring. These are just scribbled notes, and
drawings always make me think more clearly.
That is what I've been up to -
I'm off to check out your blogs and see what you have been doing!
Still snowing out!
Hope your day is going well!

Another Snowy Day
Another heart for today -
I put this on a card for a friend.
Today we had a bit of everything, weather-wise -
snow, sleet, rain and high winds...
Did some shoveling and will try to finish in the morning
before my husband returns from a business trip.
Hope you've had a great day!

A Simple Pleasure
A white doodle on brown paper -
what could be more simple?
I have been looking for this pen for a while,
having read good things about it,
and finally came across it in an unexpected store.
I think I'm in love!
There will be more doodles and drawings of this sort -
of that I am sure!
Have a wonderful week!
