First off, thank you all for your sweet comments on our little Sous Chef Extraordinaire! He brings so much joy into our life each day and we have been extraordinarily blessed to have him.
In other artful news, a few fun things!
Lesley Riley's new book is on the stands and online ~ and I have not one but TWO pages in it! It is a fabulous book and you can look at it here. It will make a great holiday gift for your friends and even a better one for yourself!
Diane and I have known each other since the prehistoric days of email listservs and as we are both quilters, artists, lawyers, and moms, we have a lot in common. Except she lives in California and I live in New York, and we 've never met!
We hope to remedy that one day with a sweetly artful retreat, but until then, we decided to have some fun by sharing our lives through our journal pages.
We alternate picking a theme for each week, and then post on Sunday evening. Now you have to be on FB to see the page, but I will occasionally post one here to give a sneak peak.
This week's theme, selected by Diane, was At the Dinner Table. As of this posting, she had not put her's up yet, but mine is. Here is a sneak peek:
It's a little muddy, I know! The damn daylight savings time is kicking my butt in terms of getting a good photo of the page. I chose to do these in an journal that is too big for the flatbed of my scanner, a dumb mistake. Of course, if I was completely organized, I'd have the page done each work by midday so I could photograph it in natural light. But then if I was completely organized, I wouldn't be me, right? ;/)
The theme for next week is "Read any good books, lately?" If you are inspired to join us, and we hope you will, please post it to your blog or FB timeline and post a link back to it on our page. We'd love to have a community of artist conversing visually!
Have a good week - are you feeling the holiday pressure yet? I'm already kvetching about it!
