Catching up…

I am a few days late in getting my October sketchbook out to my other Creative Sistahs this month.

I somehow forgot that after Halloween, it is November ! Ooops !

But it is going out into the mail today.


The pages for Kathy’s book were inspired by the lovely red tutu adventure I had for my birthday earlier in October and this photo.


I am happy with it.


I especially love how cute the rocks in my hand look.

The red tutu is out on its was to its next secret Red Tutu Chickie.

I am sure we will hear all about it when she gets it!!!


I am busy in the studio, painting rocks and doing crafty stuff for an upcoming local high school craft fair in December, as well as making 40 or so gifties for the staff at my Mom’s office which I do every year.

I am working on keeping the blahs about the winter season away. It feels like it is approaching very rapidly here in New Hampshire.

Today is not so bad. Though there is still some packed snow around, there is a lot of melting happening with the temps nearing 50 degrees.

I can handle that.

Off to the Post Office !

Happy Wednesday, Beautiful Ones !

It's in the 50's here too, Kim. But, the sun is blazing bright. I will send some your way to help you blow off the blahs.

I love the red traveling tutu. I'll have to look around and see if I can find others that are already posted. What fun.

Happy Wednesday to you too!

the grey today is overwhelming and the rain has been washing my windows all day....

i find it impossible to be productive today :(

i'm glad your snow is melting and probably gone by now....xoox

Hi Kim,
I really love that picture of you in the Red Tutu. Your journal page is wonderful, too. I'm sending you warm thoughts!

The Queen painted a self-portrait! How lovely, and I too like the rocks in Her hand! I wish you a winter that is different from those in the past, one that holds unanticipated gifts for Her Majesty! xoO

I recognized the rocks in her hand immediately!!!

Kate said...

Great job on the pages. I didn't realize the tutu was a traveling one. How fun is that. We are supposed to have a chance of snow for 7 days in a row. I hope they are wrong. I am not ready for it.

I love the rocks in her hand too Kim, a true sweet spot!!

SueAnn said...

I LOVE that photo! <3 <3

And I love the sketchbook piece so much. She's lovely. You're lovely.

I'm trying to get back into a rhythm. It's been difficult, but I guess it always is when I leave the nest for such a crazy-energetic-go-go-go place and then come back. Trying to ease back into it, if it's possible, but I don't feel like I'm moving at all.
