No where to go but up

It has been almost a year since I created a post. Much has happened since then but I won’t bore you with all the details. I hope to begin posting on a fairly regular basis as I am trying to get my side hustle, if you don’t know what that is follow the link, up and running.

I have been doing some mixed media and some watercolor painting recently; I hope to list things in my Etsy site soon or to create and online store. I am also working on a line of children’s clothing inspired by my three – yes three grand-daughters.

Here are a few photos of what I have been up to:

Lettering & drawing

I dislike my hand lettering in this piece it was supposed to be freestyle calligraphy but my strokes were too hesitant which is clearly seen in the lettering. But I do love my butterfly.

weird art

I can not remember when I last wrote a post. I could look but why scold myself? instead I am choosing to move forward. I have moved into a new apartment and therefore have all the things I brought with me to Colorado so I can sew and create again. I moved in here April 15, I think, I can not really remember. Summer is a busy time for me I have spent two weeks at Rainbow Trail, one week hosting VBS, and seven days on a mission trip to Wind River WY. Might not sound like much but those are long days; I am usually up around 6:30am and not to bed till 11:30pm/12am all while corralling packs of children. Now I am preparing for fall programing and a visit with Dave.

Since I have moved I have finished some mixed media projects two that were gifts to some special woman who helped me through tough times, others that are more practice than art as I am just finding my way with mixed media.

The first project I finished was for the woman who has taken care of Elj for me during my many travels since January. I am still not sure how I feel about it. I sometimes feel like it is reminiscent of the art work that Febe from Friends made see below.


Here are some photos of my piece:

So you be the judge Febe type art or okay piece tailored for a specific person.

Since this post has taken way more time than I thought it would, this is what happens when you are out of practice, I will sign off for today.

Till next time craft on!
