For our prompt of “Glue” today, I thought back to all of those fun craft projects I used to enjoy when I was a kid. Part of the fun, if not all of the fun, was being able to play and make a big old mess. I
It was fun, at least when you didn’t have to clean it all up afterwards. Happy birthday to Philippe! Orange chocolate cake sounds like the best birthday surprise! I’d like to see Philippe try and wait a while before sampling that 😉
That orange chocolate Grand Marnier cake sounds delicious and I want some! Although, I did just have a bowl of mango ice cream with fresh mango on it so I won’t complain too bitterly about missing out on the cake. I’ve always had allergy problems with mango in the past, but I’m found I can eat oranges in Florida but not in Oregon, and decided to give it try. Yay! I can, though I’m not going to go overboard. I’m not sure if it’s the freshness, the source of the fruit or something they spray on, but I’m enjoying it while I can!
Oh wow! That’s awesome! Yeah, I’ve always been allergic to mangos as they come to me here at least! And the cake was amazing… so light and fluffy and in my head at least… that means calorie light as well. lol 😉
Happy Birthday to Phillippe! He will love all of your efforts to make his birthday a special day! Love your crafting Beagle! It makes me think of a German Shepherd we had years ago…a very mischievous dog and he loved glue….big gallon sized jugs of glue. We walked into the house one day to find one of my husband’s shirts on the floor in the middle of a very large puddle of glue and a dog with glued whiskers and fur. He pulled this stunt more than once even when the jug of glue was in a cupboard where we thought he couldn’t get into it. He was quite a character.
Oh my gosh this made me smile Charlie because it is just how I see myself all gluey and sticky and … well you know 🙂 I don’t have to dream about making big messes … lol …. they happen quite regularly with me. Paint on my hands, face, in my white hair and always … for some reason on the tip of my nose 😉 lolol But nothing on the paper 😉 lolol Happy Birthday to Philippe 🙂 and many more!!
Thanks so much, Zoie! 😃💕 hehe… glad I made you smile. Yeah, I always make messes even when I tell myself I won’t this time around. lol And I have lots of clothes with watercolor embellishments now as well! haha!
I make lots of messes in my atmospheric paintings — and it’s harder to make a mess in those because you deliberately draw pigment across the page and invite or bleed colour and use lots of water to create water or colour flow. Have fun!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yeah, Philippe has a fabulous birthday… though it went by super quick. And yay on the new car!! That’s wonderful! Yeah… there’s so much new tech in them these days. We still drive our classic car.😊 And sending positive thoughts for your friend. Warm hugs to you!! 💕
Hellooooooo Mugdha!! So happy to hear from you again my friend! 😃💕 Wow… that sounds so amazing! All those beautiful creatures… that would be so inspiring. And a break from the Internet can be inspiring too… hehe… but happy you could pop back in to say hello. Sending you a hug to the jungle!! Much love my friend! ❤️
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yeah, we love watching the silly YouTube videos right after work to unwind… or stupid human tricks as we often call them. lol And oh my goodness… those masks as kids! I had some for playtime… but my mom usually made my costumes so I had a sewn plush mask of whatever animal character I was that year. Sending…[Read more]

Hi Darren, I really enjoy the loose quality of your work; no detail is heavily worked. That takes real confidence in the placement of your brush strokes which results in a light and airy feeling in he paintings! Love it!
For our prompt of “Bird” today, I decided to make a sketch of my little owl character holding a candle. I’ve not yet come up with a story for this owl, but one is starting to brew, so he might end up in a book at
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Yeah, we love watching the silly YouTube videos right after work to unwind… or stupid human tricks as we often call them. lol And oh my goodness… those masks as kids! I had some for playtime… but my mom usually made my costumes so I had a sewn plush mask of whatever animal character I was that year. Sending positive, hopeful thoughts for your friend. I hope she’s okay. It’s been a bit cooler here, but still more mild summer than really fall. Hugs to you my friend!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Indeed! One day! And truly… sometimes, I end up alone if Philippe has to work, so it’s really just Phineas’ snoring to keep me company. lol I just love this season… it sparkles with a hope that gets me through the whole year!
Thanks so much, Zoie! 😃💕… I love trying to bend the prompt to my will. At least, whatever it manifests as in the day! Usually, just thinking of the animal I’d like to sketch and then looking at the prompt and making it work somehow! hehe
