|Bringing the sunshine into the studio today…it’s almost March…!|
I’d like to start off with some gratitude to a quite wonderful fiance – mine! Meet Brandon…
|Bit hard to see here…|
|That’s more like it!|
Brandon is amazing person, and a creator himself! (I have him to thank for www.amyoes.com!)
|(and that’s love.)|
|My biggest joy is centering my crafting around him|
These are some mixed media paintings I made for our new house:
|…and it went pretty well!|
…And since red is my lucky color, I got a bit crafty with my heels…
Oh the wonders some ribbon and a glue gun can do!
|My DIY Guest Book!|
|He’s got quite the collection of mixed media cards from me so far!|
We’re like eggs n’ bacon – but kosher.
Finding Brandon was quite the reward after a pretty shaky road. But, as one of my favorite quotes has reminded me over and over:
Wherever there is pain, there is a blessing somewhere. All of my surgical scars are now just red marks – and as I said, red is my lucky color…
There are blessings everywhere – and as I mentioned, I often find gratitude in nature, most prominently in trees, who have always felt like my ancient, sacred, grandfatherly guardians.
|The Hampshire campus is so beautiful in the not-winter time…|
I had some cans of pumpkin laying around and it was perfect timing for Shabbat.
I’d say it was pumpkin well-used, but I wish I had a bit more for some of these pumpkin twists!
|My word was “CONNECTION”|
And if YOU are feeling ambitious in the kitchen later, try the BEST onion rings you’ll ever make in your life. Or…if you’re feeling a bit lazy, there is always the best way to microwave a chocolate chip cookie.
|Brrrr….it’s cold. Even painting this made me cold.|
By the way, all my blog posts are now on my My Pinterest page, for all your wonderful pin-pinning cyber list-makers out there…
