A Snails Pace.............


........my posting on this blog has been at a snails pace.... lol  but sometimes life is like that... LOOK what i found at a flea market!I think its sooooo cute! Its vintage Avon. I only paid $1! I find it online for about $12... so good deal but even if it wasn't i think its just adorable.. the perfume... well.... not my style..lol.. That piece of art in the background is from my friend Eileen! Thank you girlfriend!!


I was beginning to think i would never be able to say this BUT they are finished!!! DONE.... tadaaaa... :)


I listed them on Craig's List .But I had to ask way too much for them because my cost is way too high.. You know me i usually find things at flea markets or upcycle but everything here was bought brand new so my investment was too high.. so...


I get to keep them!! They will go in my guest bedroom on the nightstands... 

So so nice to finish a project...  I can't tell you.. Maybe you know the feeling.. :)  I hope life has been treating you well... and your having a wonderful start to your Summer.. Hugs! deb

Creativity but first..... Redbuds....


Redbuds are coming into their own around here this week... The white Serviceberry is starting to show her age....


....At Hobbs State Park where i work they have many many Redbuds around the Visitor Center. It just glorious! I just had to snap a few pics when leaving work yesterday.. 


..........back to creativity... I don't think i could live without creativity in my life.....  When i look for it i find it everywhere... From how i decorate my home to the jewelry and clothes i wear ... to my sketch book... 


Here are some recent pages in my sketch book... there are drawings to come back and color and places to write ..... 


I'm having a blast coming up with things to draw... and finding creative ways to have places to write.... 


I do everything lightly in pencil first then I've been using a Sharpie Pen to ink it in.. loads of fun... 


I've been enjoying sitting here over coffee and doodling most mornings before work.... is there a better way to start the day??


I LOVE the little cobwebs in the corners....I must confess the spider is a sticker... lol  


This is the one i'm currently working on for several mornings now.. LOTS of little flowers... I plan on a dragonfly at the end of the spiral.... but who knows maybe it will be a bee..... 

.............And when your creativity can overflow into your job... well thats just the best isn't it?? We have this little table by the front door to showcase some items we sell... And i have been encouraged to 'just run with it' and do 'my thing' ... lol  Last month was really the first month... but i don't have a pic of it.. This month is all about Spring and i tied in butterflies and dragonflies.. It should come up large if you click on it.. Do you see my purple and green stand i found at the dump... remember that? Well it has butterflies on it so i brought it in.. Everybody loved the table ...Just before my boss went on vacation she put two things on the table... the night lights and the pink flowered tablecloth.. so much fun... So does creativity creep into every aspect of YOUR life?  Big Hugs! deb

The Mist is Lifting...........


Its that time of year again....... the grass is greening up, there's mist in the hollows, the Service Berry trees are blooming their popcorn blooms.....Soon the Mama Does will be having their fawns... If you get up early enough.... at the crack of dawn ... you can see Momma and baby come up out of the hollow.. go across the yard ...cross the road (makes me nervous as heck) and go down another hollow toward the Lake..  The fawn can barely walk and its trying to keep up with its Momma.. Momma knows she has to move the fawn from where she gave birth... coyotes roam here... 

So Spring is here... the Forsythia is in full bloom.... such a bright , cheery spot of yellow explosion... I'm not a fan of Spring... only because i know hot , humid Summer is right on its coat tails.. But i sure can appreciate the joy of life returning to these woods.. I hope your having a beautiful Spring... Hugs! deb

A New Habit..................

                                         
.........in the last year Hubs has developed a new habit.... He makes sure i have a bouquet of fresh flowers ..... When one begins to wilt he soon comes home with a fresh bouquet... :)  Its been interesting to see the colors and types of flowers he comes home with.. Me.. i love these variegated carnations... Hubs more often brings home multi colored daisies.. 

I think perhaps seeing the residents at the Retirement Home get such joy from receiving flowers that has made him take up this new habit.. I'm lovin' it! :)

                                             Look what I scored on Craig's List last week!!! SCORE!!!  This awesome.. practically brand new drafting table with chair and light cost $30!!Woot woot!!! Hubby messed up the little tray on the side getting it home but an easy fix... Its going downstairs in the craftroom but its upstairs for now becauseeeee...... drumroll...... 

The workmen are coming to spray texture on our walls downstairs!!!! Woot woot!!! Soon the words 'mudding the walls' will no longer pass these lips... cause 'honey'... You'll never talk me into doing that again!!! I have mudded my last wall... Famous last words i know but i'm totally serious... I really feel in my bones that i've done my last remodel..  Thanks for stopping by!!! Hugs! deb

Lets Turn the Page.........


..........you remember the blue book with feathers???!!  Well lets turn the cover..........


What doesn't show is the sparkles on the wings just like on the feathers on the front...  I didn't mean to put 'Just Breathe' here again... I meant it to be  'Bee Fearless...'  But my mind wasn't on what i was doing so there you go... Too much 'breathing' and you can hyperventilate... lol 


First page is a doodle that got out of control...lol  oh well it was fun.. with a place to put your name.. 


Here's a close up of the top half



... and the bottom half



Let's turn one more page....


It was fun trying to draw pots...


I have learned one trick for drawing sunflowers...... stop trying to make them look perfect... If the petals are a little wonky thats okay ... it gives them a little character....... perfection is overrated... :) Something i have to keep learning ... over and over and over..... Big Big Hugs to whoever stops by.... deb
