I've mentioned before I love rocks and the ocean. They're at the top of the list-o-faves. If I had to pick one over the other, it would be tough! By themselves they are lovely. Together, I can't really put it into words! As I was semi-scampering (don't want to break a hip!) over these rocks the other day, I said out loud to the world, "I'm so in love right now!" I didn't think about it; it just somehow came out of my mouth. That's just how it felt. I hope you have a place where you feel the same.

Even in a faded plastic table cloth! This pattern is created by an inexpensive table cover left over from graduation festivities. It's covering a glass-top table on the deck. Moisture has gotten underneath and the sun has faded the once-red plastic to pink. So a combination of the elements has created this pattern - we have not manipulated it in any way. The table underneath is black. How cool is this!

"Sometimes it's okay to pick the flowers." Collage, ink, acrylic paint, gesso, graphite, watercolor crayon.
Instead of my chores and assorted tasks, I was doing this. I typically tell myself when everything is done it's okay to allow myself time to create.. guess what? everything - whatever that is - is NEVER done and there is no time to create. So, lately I've just been saying yes to myself here and there and no to those things, which in the big picture aren't that important... you know, like housework! Who's with me?!!

I made this pouch featured here: http://www.craftsy.com/class/bag-making-basics-reversible-tote-and-zipper-pouch/148 for my daughter for Christmas. She uses it for a travel art kit. It was fun and easy! Give it a whirl. I'm planning on making more. I think I'd actually sew more, if I watched more instructional videos, as I am a visual learner. When I sew from printed directions, there is smoke rolling off ye olde seam ripper - she gets a workout!! Here's how mine turned out. BTW - no seam rippers were harmed in the making. I'd love to see yours, if you make one. Meanwhile, I'm off to see what else Craftsy has going on. :D
