This week...

Hello, another week's come around... We've had a few horrible, no good, very bad days here...so I've been too busy too post. I have made treasuries on etsy though... they're great as an escape from things as they're quick, and creative. If you've never made one it can be addicting. You pull together art, photography and etsy items and create a mood. Like some people match an outfit or plan a quilt or whatever, by picking the right colors and styles and themes. I've done ones lately with themes like: when I wear my bay bracelet I feel like the lady of the lake, the lillypads wait for me and the dragonflies know my name...
and when I wear my alpaca shrug I feel like a goddess on Mt. Olympus!. They're fun. If you want to see them you can click on my shop on the right sidebar, go to my profile and click on latest treasuries. I'm even thinking in treasuries now... maybe I shouln't admit this, lest you think I am crazy but I was driving to work, it was rainiy and all of the sudden lately very green. Its a curvy road, lots of trees and a creek beside the road... such a  pretty, watery scene. I was thinking how pretty, when a new white truck came toward me from the other direction. I immediately thought, "NO, that's wrong, it doesn't fit. But thank goodness it wasn't red, that would have been totally out of place but an old junker Ford Pick-up might have been better!" That's when I realized I may be spending too much time on etsy!

So anyway... earlier this week I did get some things done...I finished the two tiny needlefelted worlds...


And my daughter made this...a little needlefelted box for a tooth fairy or a ring...



and I have been working on my palette. It will be done next week...



 And I received My sisterhood of the traveling sketchbook in the mail from PritiLisa. It's a wonderful shrine box! The one photo shows her first page and my page for May! I did a painting of a girl in a pink bathrobe as I remember a trip to Washington DC when I was young when I went outside early in the morning still in my bathrobe and could smell sooooo many spring flowers and flowering trees!





Thanks for stopping by, Rememeber to check out all the friday sites (fiberarts friday, paint party friday, creative friday, crafty friday and whimsical wednesday) on my sidebar and stop by the other Sisters blogs to see what they've done in their sketchbooks! Have a good week! thanks for visiting!
