A garden show!!!

Here is my table at the Garden Show in my Neighborhood. It was a lot of fun. Merry who sells vintage buttons was right across from me. I ran over to explore whenever I could.

It must be getting close to Easter. The Azalias are in Bloom!!!

Every year just before Easter the Azalias in front of my house bloom. They are so pretty. Most years it rains though and washes the blooms off. I think they might be hanging on this year. Here is a picture of them. You can't see the house because of the hedge. I only see the flowers when I come home or go out. It is always a pleasant surprise. Happy Easter.

Happy St. Patricks Day

My mom collected so many little jokes out of the newspaper. This was one that I laugh at everytime I run across it. So simple but so funny. Innocent humor. Plus I can just hear my mom saying it to my Dad. She had such a dry sense of humor and so unexpected sometimes. Ha ha mom, you still can make me laugh and bring joy to my day.

Started a new job designing a book today!!!

So I ordered this magazine in a box to get inspired. Isn't this incredible. I can't wait for it to arrive. Lot of good ideas in here. Yeah.

My new valentine illustration.

I love the month of February because it is so full of red things. What a way to brighten up a dull month. Although I must say, here in California we are having warm springlike weather. Very unusual. February has always been about RAIN. I guess now that my roof is fixed the rain needs to stay away. Ha Ha. I am busy making red bracelets and cute valentine buttons. Here is a valentine sketch for my husband.

Finally, I am back. Sort of!!!

I have been on such a long adventure. My trip to North Carolina was divine. I even was able to stand in a snowstorm. That alone was worth the trip. I was so inspired by the Richmond art scene that I created these ear rings for my daughter as soon as I got home. I have had these glass striped beads for some time and am delighted how they turned out.
