I am in love with this......

I was in Barnes and Nobles the other day, and this book caught my eye.
I love maps and this cover was so interesting. To find a book of interesting artwork out
of maps.... not literally but you understand. I might have to add this to my wish list.

Talk to you soon,

Many things....

Well, I hope you had a great holiday!
I did.... although it has flown by .

Here are just a few treats I received.
One from some friends at school.
One from my husband
One from good ole St. Nick
( 5.99 at Borders bargain bin ! )

I am so excited to work with these line drawings
of my favorite..... birds!

I plan on finishing this by the end of the week. It must be
mailed by Jan.15th .
I am very excited because it will be taking
a tour here in D.C. !

Here is a new piece I am working on.

A pillow I just finished for me.

I had seen these unique T-shirt necklaces on etsy,
thought I would give it a try.
I love them.

Here is one in black. I bought some
pins/hair things to put on as
an accessory.

Well, I hope to have some new work
to show you by the end of the week.
Talk to you soon!

I got myself an early present. I know , this is the season of giving
however ..... I could not resist.
Ray Lamontagne is genius.
I know you have heard my praise over the
great Joe Purdy.... but here is a little
secret.... I might like Ray more!
( Ray is a musician if you did not already know! )
Talk to you soon!

My weekly check in.....

I am feeling like this cow just grazing on the grass as the world
goes by!
I can not believe that it is mid December.... I really need to
to get moving!

During my Christmas break , I am going to do a
collage featuring this picture.

Here is a collage in progress. I will give you a hint...
there will be fish on the bottom and a tree on the top.
Big surprise , right!

Here is a large piece featuring my little guys. This might be in my
etsy shop soon. I am still thinking about what to do with it.

Basketball is in full swing. The lighting in the gym's are not great
so my pictures come out a bit fuzzy. I need to work
on this. Any tips??
Here is something on my wish list. I love my Trout! This is the
2nd book by James Prosek.
Talk to you soon!

Not yet!

It was a Saturday afternoon,
we had just finished a day of morning basketball games
and a birthday party at the batting cages.
I leaned in to hug my son
there it was.
The smell of a young boy!!!!
The stinky smell of a young sweaty boy!!!
This can not be!
Time has played a cruel trick on me.
He is only 10!
My husband was quick to remind me that things will start to change.
First the smell..... then the voice..... then everything.
My little birds are starting to fly!!
Talk to you soon,
