What I did over my Christmas vacation…

I took a loooong break over the Christmas holidays- about 2 1/2 weeks! I did a little work here and there- a quick check-in on email and Facebook, a little sketching… but that’s about it. There was a lot of lazing about, lol!! My daughter left for her 3 1/2 month semester in England last… Keep reading…

Fun Fall Weekend

Daughter was home for her Fall Break from college last week- it was just too short!

In the studio (and garden) today…

The saga of our poor tree continues. Remember last week I showed you the damage that the big storm did to our 100+ year old sycamore tree? Well, the tree trimmers came and… took care of things. They cut almost everything out of the tree- way more than we thought that they would (and much… Keep reading…

In the studio this week…

Even though the name of this post is “In the studio this week,” I have to confess that most of what I am sharing is from outside the studio… there has been so much going on the homefront. And, about 90% of the actual work that I’ve done this week has been on the computer…… Keep reading…

In the Studio this Week…

Oh my goodness…. so much goodness in my home and studio this week! Our visitors from England are still here, for just a short time longer. My husband’s cousin, her husband, and 6 and 8 year old daughters have been here with us for almost 2 weeks now. We have really enjoyed having little girls… Keep reading…
