Snowy Days


It’s snowing again here in New Hampshire, and unlike many, I am in love with it. Sometimes I feel like I need a winter support group. I love the quiet snowfalling time, watching the bird activity at the feeders during a storm, reading in my chair by the window watching the world become beautifully white.

I have many creative projects that benefit from this bonus time during a blizzard.


Working on my vision book


Sorting my colored pencils by color



Working on a skirt for one of the girls


And a dog for one of the boys.

I finished one of the socks, a very light and airy pair this time.



Finishing up the Christmas scrapbook-working on 2011, two more to go!




And just for good measure, I’m sharing a beautiful sunrise photo and the Waterlogue version, as well as a sunset here on Sunset St.





Man, I love where I live!

it’s time to block the blue sweater I made for myself, and get some done on the quilt for the little guy. I need some primo knitting and quilting time!


Creating Every Day

The all white quilt needed some repair before I could use it on the Seasonal table, (it will be snow). A cup of tea, and working in the sun on the studio floor.


More quilting-I love that green and brown fabric


All 5 hats are dome! No pompoms though, they are the last thing on my list of things. I love to do!


Next project-scarf for one of the kids in my life


And a few more pages for the Vision book


Vision and Joy!

I worked a bit in my Vision book this week


Making art and writing are my two loves at the moment

i was thinking about the holidays, and sorting out stocking gifts






And I decided for certain to create a new online course for December, and it will be free ! It’s my gift to students and friends and it will ultimately be a gift to myself.  Like with the December scrapbook I wrote about last week, I look forward to enjoying the light of the season even though it’s a very busy time. Twenty four days of magic, inspiration, and connection that will increase our joy and bring a true sense of peace during the holiday season. Leave a comment if you are interested in learning more,  i’m writing up the description today!


Vision Book

I’ve started a Vision Book this week, and a group on FB for those who’d like to share and exchange with others making books.


Getting started
