I was outside trying to take good pictures of the pendants I recently made.  The light wasn’t cooperating with me at all.  I was starting to give up when I noticed this ladybug walking across my deck.  He didn’t like me trying to take his picture and would run super fast.  I had a heck of a time trying to stay up with him.  I’m glad I did because I love these shots.  Each picture has...

These are pieces I made for the Rebel Rabbit Craft Fair.  I think I finally have a good understanding of using stencils.  I was so happy that everything I made turned out really great.   The next two weeks I will be busy getting everything I need for this craft fair.  Since this is my very first one, there is lots to do to make sure I have everything I need.  Luckily Craftster and many other sites have...

I’ve been spending time trying to organize my art room.  It’s been a disaster for way too long mainly due to lack of storage.  I tend to be a bit of a pack rat, so I’m always running out of room to store my treasures.  I got new shelves about a month ago and now I’m just trying to carve out time to be in that room and to put it into order.  That is one reason for the lack of new...

During our paddle boat ride at the beach, we happened upon 3 Blue Herons.  We were able to get pretty darn close to these birds.  They just pretty much ignored us.  I love these first two shots a lot.  I like the black funky background.  I also like the light on the bird from the setting sun.  I took pictures as fast as I could since the paddle boat was moving.  I was so happy when a few turned out...

While at Ecola State Park, I noticed these vines wrapping around other plants.  I was fascinated by how intricate and beautiful the curls were.  I also loved the rich green on green that just really pops.  I spent way too much time taking pictures of this natural phenomena.   My husband lots of patience while I was on my picture spree.  He knows that at times of sudden inspiration, it’s best to just...

After a trip to the beach and a dreadful bout of food poisoning, I’m back in action.   My husband and I took a quick overnight trip to Seaside, OR.  It’s been years since I’ve been there.  I’d forgotten how short of a drive it is from Portland.  We had a beautiful sunny day when the weather man had forecasted nothing but rain.  We did everything from walking on the beach, played...
