Weekly Photo Challenge: So Many Textures!

I am a very textural person!  I love Jacquard and tapestries with deep textures.  I study stone, brick, wood and metals when I’m out and about with my camera.  Everything in our world, man made or natural has it’s own distinct textures to enjoy.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage

One of my favorite things in the whole world is collage!  I love making them with canvas, papers, paints, stamps, ink, and whatever strikes my fancy.  I also love creating various photo collages.  It’s much less messy!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting Pink

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!

An earlier Mother’s Day.

I was sometimes called a “girly-girl” which I don’t get except I was very slight of frame and quiet.  I didn’t wear ruffles or pink but preferred a book to sports, kittens to dogs and giggling to gossip.

I grew to love pink, ruffles and lace as I got older and I don’t mean as an old lady, but even into my 30’s I grew fond of the romantic look in clothing and decor.

An outdoor picnic. I made my dress and my son’s outfit.


Reflections are all around us daily but I’m reflecting internally about the time in my life when I actually “mothered.”  I am still a mother but am no longer allowed to act like one.  That sucks.

I love Sean’s expression at 3 months.

My son David used to play a little too rough, age 3. At age 10 he broke a foot right before school started.

Reflections of home.


Reflections in nature.

Daily Prompt: Stylish

Po’ but stylish!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Still Blurry

As stated in my previous post, the last number of years have all been a blur.

I have never been so disorganized and out of touch and this is such a bad time to be this way.  I am now in the process of cleaning everything out and packing as I go along, expecting to be moving before the end of the year.  Certainly before winter sets in again.

I wanted to share some of the projects I have been working on sporadically since sometime last year as well as other odds and ends.  This blog may be a blur as well.


I have been working on multiple projects on canvas with various mediums, sewing with fabrics, actually made some bead jewelry with supplies purchased years ago and tried my hand with polymer clay.

The following are various sewing projects.

1980’s silk pants being upcycled to scarf. Love the images on them!


Very pleased with my second attempt at polymer clay jewelry! This was after I burnt a batch in an old toaster oven with messed up thermostat.


A couple of craft type projects.

Not going to miss the frost on my windows, no matter how beautiful it is.

I’m going to end this blur of a post with a question.

What color is this dress?

My mother made this back in the 1960's.
