Go Long!

I love all the long multi-layered necklaces and thought I'd make one for my first day back at school tomorrow. I mixed large looped chain with a medium link and then a very small one which I think worked out quite well. To finish it off I added an antique glass chandelier crystal , a silver locket with my hubby's intial and my own (awww so romantic!), and a beautiful glass bead dangle. I think it is stunning and I cannot wait to wear it!

Nature Walk

Another watercolour from the '90's copied and re-born in my art journal. I have so much fun doing this! The girl in the painting was from a photograph in a Victoria magazine and she reminded me so much of myself at that age, playing in the outdoors, searching for treasures in nature, that it compelled me to paint this picture. Having it displayed in my art journal reminds me of that young version of myself and how I need to feed that inner child .

I Just Called To Say, "I Love You..."

This entry in my art journal was spontaneous, as most of them are, and triggered mostly by the watercolour I did back in the '90's of my daughter playing on the phone. I remember spending hours on the phone making plans with friends, talking about the weekend, giggling and whispering late at night so the parents didn't kick you off... How fun! Now my phone sits on the counter hardly used looking sad and bored while my 3 offspring use MSN to converse with their friends. And they don't even use real words! brb,lol,ttyl.... and some I just gave up trying to figure out! I realize it's the sign of the times and things change, but I still think speaking to someone on the phone and hearing their voice and laughter is better than reading it on a computer screen. I guess I'm just old fashioned.

Another Storm??

Enough with the rain already! You see it on the faces of everyone you pass and it falls from strangers lips while waiting in line at the bank or grocery store. It's amazing how the weather can affect the moods of those who are normally very upbeat and vibrant. I can understand the gloom they all feel especially because where we live it's 85% winter and 15% ok weather. Big sigh! I can definately understand and feel the frustration but alas, there is absolutely nothing we can do about the weather so I try to have a positive attitude and find other things to do until the rain goes away. What else can you do?

By now I'm sure everyone out there knows how much I LOVE PUGS and Boston Terriers, so when I saw this little sweetie with the same name as me??? Well I just had to share it!
