Say I Am You Beaded Necklace II

I spent a couple of days in bed recuperating from some terrible illness that hit me like a truck.  Feeling better now!

Lacquered handmade ceramic beads on cording.

Feeling better yes, but now I am losing my voice.  Should make for an interesting lecture this afternoon.

Wandering Through My Sketchbooks


From the Awakened Series:

My newly initiated sketchbook with an anteater sticker

From the Inside the Raindrop series:

From the When I Am You series:

From the Where I Go In My Dreams series:

Doodles from the Anteater sketchbook:

I like how ghost drawings show up behind; I usually leave an empty page in between drawings, but I was going through my sketchbooks too quickly, so now there will be a drawing on every page.

Now to work on the grant I have been wrestling with for a while....getting closer to the finish on that, thanks to a wonderful team of colleagues working with me.

Dear Oly

I ordered a small book of drawings from Dear Oly.  It was an absolute delight to open! One neat prize after another- she told me she likes to make up her packages like she is sending them to a dear friend.  I haven't even opened all of the little packages yet!


Small Packages

My dear friend Denny sent me a wonderful surprise.....

I love how she is wearing boots, and is crossing her legs.  And she was wrapped in the most awesome piece of linen.  Oh the joy of small packages arriving in the mail.   I miss Denny, and my favorite shop of all times,
The Dress Shop in Buffalo.

Julija at Castleton III

Julija and I made the journey back to Castleton today.  It was a beautiful sunny day so the trip was enjoyable, but I am missing my neon peanut, now that she is back at college.

The ladies back together again.

Julija's roommate, Abby, has Elmo slippers!  Sweet.
