Promises.....

Today promises to be a beautiful day... the sun is shining....gorgeous... Yesterday was nice too... so we decided to mow our yard and pick up sticks and pine needles... The 'Tick Man' comes today.  Once a year we bring in someone to spray the yard for bugs...namely ticks... with the pine trees and all the deer that hang out here we have alot of ticks.... It really helps keep down the ants and such too i believe..  The trick is though your not suppose to disturb the ground too much afterwards so we try to have it all neat and tidy before he gets here... Some years we are on top of it and some years we are not.. lol 

I have several projects i have completed lately or nearing completion.. i just need to take some photos so stand by.. and i hope your day is just as beautiful as mine.. Hugs! deb

The Bee Book.....


I've just completed a two -page spread in the 'Bee Book'...


Most of the responses from family and friends has been.. eewwww... cool... but ewwww..... lol  . Above you can see the window to the previous pages.. I love how the lizard looks like he's peeking through the window.. 


I was going through my magazine images and i found the above image... It is a little creepy but i couldn't believe my good fortune... What an incredible picture for a 'Bee Book'... I added the flower to her head.. See the purple on the side..?? 


... they are tags that slide out...  I learned this technique from LorriMarie Jenkins on YouTube... I included a link to her home page... My style is not her style but i learn alot from her while i'm making my first altered book... 

Here i glued flattened paper towel cardboard tubes between pages... that gave me the slot... then i cut another tube in half to the right size that would slide in and out of the slot...then decorated the tags like you want.. very fun and not too difficult..  

Here i think you can tell i used 'Glossy Accents' to highlight the honey and make it stand out.. I love, love, love how this turned out..... storms are moving in this afternoon.. So i'm headed out to take the trash out and then go for  walk... The weather has been gloriously cool yesterday and today and for a few more days yet to come.. Cool days in May... i'll take it.. won't be long and it will be sweltering.. How is everyone? Thanks so much for stopping by and if you drop me a line an extra special thanks!! :)  Hugs! deb

Happy Earth Day!


.........from my little piece of the Earth...







...... a heart.....


April is the month for the pine pollen to drop... uuughh everywhere!  Suppose to rain to day though.. wash everything off..



Hard to believe the above babies have the potential to be this massive tree!!


aaannd this is only half a tree! The powerline people have cut all of one side off and its still impressive everytime i walk by it on my way....

What have you been reading??


Would you like to browse my library.... This is a small fraction of the books i have.. I might be able to open my own bookstore.. Ofcourse they've taken me a lifetime to collect and drag with me everywhere..   They run the gambit from horror


.....to fantasy.....



..... just an eclectic mix......



.......  Stephen King has been a favorite since my teenage years...



... I have quite a large collection of his books... Still always some i'm looking for.... I don't have the Dark Tower series or The Dome... or The Stand... 


Scary Creatures are always a favorite...As is Lord of the Rings...and the Hobbit....


.... And Dragons..yes please....




.... never pass up a good mystery... especially one with Agent Pendergast here who reminds me very much of Sherlock Holmes.. 


.... And finally Hubby and his Master Shower.. showing you how big it is... oy vey ...


I think we went a little crazy... maybe it was all these years (5) taking a shower in a little cubicle made us go too far in the other direction.. Oh well.. It'll be okay.. It might even look smaller once we put the doors on.. Oh no! doors!!! We've never installed doors before... !! I know i've heard somewhere that 'Life is about biting off more than you can chew'...who said that? ...  Hubs and i definitely have that down pat... lol  

Take care all!!! Stay in touch! Pick up a good book! We'll get through this!! Hugs! deb

Hanging in there???


We're hanging in there just like this fern... This brick wall is near my outside faucet.. Its nice and shaded and every year we get moss and ferns there.. 


Kathy of Hummingbird Woodland Studios sent me a cute Easter card... What a surprise in my mailbox! 


Master shower coming along... We have just gotten past the *&*!!@**&#@!!!!!! niches... (excuse my French). Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here... knock on wood.. very hard wood... 


Sketching going on.. hard to see... I have since outlined it in pen so i'll repost this next time....


Hubs and i have decided... as long as you are well provisioned... quarantine is not half bad...


YUM!!! 


Dogwoods are blooming everywhere!!! 


I love the old dead trees on my property... A buzzard likes to sit on this one and watch me mow the grass.... lol 


My 'Naked Ladies' have come back for the second year in a row!! Woot woot!!!  Hubs walked in the house and said.. ' I see the nudist colony is back'... ROFL!!!! I about died laughing.. 

Life is okay for us right now.. We are still healthy... and so is our family... Life may feel a little constricted a little confined but hey i was mowing the yard yesterday and look!  WISHES... potential wishes were everywhere!!   Take care of yourself... stay safe.. and thanks for stopping by! Hugs! deb
