Ahhh big wheels! They were noisy and had no brakes. The neighbor boy had one and would always come hauling down the street and slide into a sideways skid. Scared the poop out of me every time. It looks just like his! I have a hard time sketching wheels, they always look crooked. Lol Busy days can bring you down, but you know you are our…[Read more]
Your astronaut is spot on! So cool! I get nervous flying in an airplane, I can’t imagine going up in a rocket! Loved the Jetsons! I remember way back, people talking about visual telephoning and look where we are today…..I’m not that old either! Lol
“You’ve got a friend in me….la la la”. I haven’t known you very long, nor have I ever met you, but I know our paths crossed for a reason. We have learned together that we are two similar peas just rolling around life. And enjoying the ride! I love elephants. I love how they are so family oriented and caring. Your rendition shows this. Very sweet!
I thought of you boys yesterday when I heard the news. 🙁 I love your positive outlook. It is so true that we come back stronger in some way. (My mother died when I was 9 and I always felt I grew up a stronger gal because of it, rather than going to the pity pot.) I have to ask you, have you ever done narratives for Public TV? I swear the guy…[Read more]
Taking time to smell the flowers is always best for you. In this case trees and whatever Phin is stopping at! Tee hee. You are probably like me, you accomplish more when under pressure. Love your Flipper! They call him Flipper, Flipper fast as…….don’t remember the rest. 😉
Oh yeah! We’ve boughten a few more pieces of furniture. It’s my hubby’s midlife crisis solution. He already owns collector cars, so I am benefitting from this. We are on piece number 12. All antigues. Lol
Looks like a good birthday meal to me. Give me a good burger and I am a happy camper. I don’t dwell on getting older, otherwise I will start to feel older. I am a kid at heart and will always be. You know they keep saying people are living longer….so I guess 50+ is the new 30+. 😉 Again, Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday fellow April birthday friend! I hope you have a wonderful day fit for a king! Ahhh Spam. I think it was the meat to help stretch family money. Yes we had it. I don’t see how a can would feed a family of 5, but that’s what it did. I only remember having it with canned hash( that I don’t like to this day!). Mom would dress it…[Read more]
Life’s too short to do things we don’t enjoy! I must admit, there are some days I don’t want to sketch your prompts (Charlie gasps!), so I don’t and I skip to another. Amazingly enough, I will visit it again, do it and be happy I did! I wish we had Doodlewash dinners here! I go to DL each year(sometimes twice) to spend 5 days sketching and…[Read more]
I had to laugh at this post. It is so me(except for the tornado slide part). I teach art journaling classes in my own way. A lot of times there is no rhyme or reason to my processes, but they get me to the end result. The biggest reward?? My students keep returning, fighting for seats. Lol! We aren’t all wired the same way, you are full aware…[Read more]
Oh Sandra! This is the cutest little book. Your work of course is wonderful. I love the colors you chose. That story is darling and makes me want to know how his day on the roller coaster went. You need to have this published! Then once you have this one published, you can do a series. 🙂 Thank you for breaking this process down. It has…[Read more]
Sparkle! I never got the unicorn thing. Maybe because it’s a horse and I’ve never been a horse person.?? I just recently had to paint a small paper mache unicorn head for work, it was painful. Lol! When unicorn experiences happen in Disneyland, they are called Magic Moments. 🙂 Love Magic Moments!
And guess where Pink Martini are from? Right here in Portland Oregon. But a true fan would know that. 🙂 I will admit, I’ve never gone to see them. Your lunch plate is spot on. I don’t ever recall being forced to eat vegetables when growing up. Lol
