something new again...

i did a show a few months back where i sold my handpainted river stones, they are something that i just love creating and feels magical to create on these stones that come from mother nature so i thought i would share them here and list them in my etsy shop here if anyone would feel interested in purchasing them for a paperweight, on a windowsill with other bits of nature or on an altar if you meditate...

i've caught the midori tn bug....


i bought a midori a year ago and never really used it that much and in the meantime i bought some other tn's in pocket and personal sizes and then recently i saw the new B6 size and just decided to cut my midori down a little bit and i just love this size. so i made my own little journaling insert out of tomoe river paper. here are some of my recent journaling pages...

new sketchbook pages...

this first sketch is a pretty book i found at the library with all kinds of recipes and ideas for a simple cozy life and i did a drawing of the yummy looking cassoulet


i've lately been going through some old magazines and finding things to draw and i came across this article of the inspiration cards i sent to somerset life, which was a fun project and i was so excited to be in the magazine
 
and then one of my favorite books the painted garden and a pretty flower i think it is supposed to be a camellia but it turned out looking more like a rose.

hope to stick with sketching for awhile , i tend to start and stop projects a lot but i wish i could make the sketchbook a regular habit.

hope everyone is having a lovely weekend and maybe doing something creative...
