My dear sister is always trying to "get me out there" (wink) and she has asked me to send some of my photos to the National Geographic Photo Contest. And so I obediently have done so. The pic here is one of 7 that I've sent in. If you'd like to see the rest --please do! and give them high ratings!---you can go to this link:

and from there you can get information on the contest in case you'd like to join yourself!

Playing with my Head!




My sister is learning to sculpt with polymer clay and the other day I decided to give it a try just for fun. This guy is done all by hand and not using any molds. My first attempt at making a head. I must say, I surprised myself!! I know he looks a little evil because his eyes aren't painted but really he's just a nice dude!

Sketches


When I pick up my son from school I go very early in order to snag the only shady parking spot near the school. Especially because my dog always comes with me. So I bring my handy bag of art supplies, my sketchbook, and my faithful Dr. Pepper and draw. 

Listen


Here's a journal page. I've been trying to get myself to journal more often. I usual do a cool background and then don't want to wreck it. But I'm determined to write! hard for me. Anyway, Teesha Moore's style make it a little easier. And using all these bright colors is a fun departure. 

What a Surprise!


Wow! What a wonderful surprise!! My little composition notebook was chosen by Cloth, Paper Scissors to be in their online newsletter! This is the first time EVER that I've submitted work to anyone anywhere and of course, the first time I've ever been chosen! I am so very grateful to the people at Inspire Me Thursday http://www.inspiremethursday.com/  . It started with their weekly challenge titled "notebook". Then they sent out an email suggesting that "we" enter the Cloth Paper Scissors challenge. A week later, there's my little book!! So awesome! A small victory for moi.

Powder Room Entertainment

Well, In my house, anytime you go to the bathroom this is what you will see. My cat loves to keep you entertained by playing under the door. And if there happens to be a cat toy that you can kick to him, he will kick it back and play and play! Silly cat.
