Fizzle

Blogging everyday is not for me.

Happy Black Friday

I don't like shopping, but I do love my new camera.

Happy Thanksgiving

Every year on this day I swear my first 10k
will be next year's Pumpkin Plod.

Baker Cheat

If you buy ready-made pie crust, pinch the edge with
your fingers and it will look home-made.

A bit contradictory

I went to the library and checked out a few books about inflammatory foods, then proceeded to the store to buy the ingredients to make three Thanksgiving pies.

At the end of my leash

I don't know how much more I can endure with this dog.

The holidays are here

I enjoyed a lazy weekend, the last before the holiday rush.

Sorry Harry, I'm not that into you.

The Space Between

8x10 mixed media

When I finally get around to making painting a priority I wonder why I allow so much time to pass convinced that there isn't enough time.

Typeface

Catching just the last 30 minutes of the documentary "Typeface" on PBS was enough to make me want to visit the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, WI as well as investigate Letterpress printing opportunities that may be in and around Chicago.

Painting Is Like Exercise

Painting is like exercise:
you feel so good after you begin,
you wonder why you spent days avoiding it?

Change of Plans

We cancelled our plans to go roller skating with Girl Scouts
and I was thrilled to spend time in my studio.

Play Today


Lately I have not been able to accomplish anything nor relax.

11.14.2010

Cool, but forgotten

I successfully renewed interest in pattern blocks
by digging them out of the closet and displaying them
as a dining room table centerpiece.

More sugar



Brownie bites baked for Band Booster Bake Sale.

This was yesterday

I was thinking of sewing little elves of felt.

Goal Setting

Consume less sugar, de-clutter the house, and crate-train the dog.

Relapse of Separation Anxiety

I have never longed for cable TV,
but I'd like to see that show called "It's Me or the Dog."

Blogging

I'm not sure how much longer I will be a blogger.

Late Fall Planting

I just finished relocating my peonies
in the dark and it's not even 5:30pm.

Sketchbook

Painting does not always bring me joy,
but not painting makes me miserable.

Time to make the pees

While designing the "How to Cook a Turkey" section of the paper, I had to explain to my coworkers why I was lol.

11.04.2010

Studio

It did not take long to clear the Halloween sewing clutter from my workspace and begin creating something new.

11.03.2010

The bad and the good

Today I over ate and stayed up too late, but got completely caught up on laundry.

Light a candle

The Liturgy of Remembrance in honor of all the parishioners who departed this year was more beautiful and cathartic than expected.

Halloween Fun


You know the large stray dog you have welcomed into your home is perfectly safe when she happily allows the kids to dress her in a tutu.
