Paint Nite – Polar Bear in the Night?

I am making up the name of the painting because I cannot for the life of me remember it. We’ve talked off and on about participating in a paint nite, so I finally said, why not. The first step was getting tickets. Now we think we’d like to do this at least once a month, […]

Follow My Light

I took some time and made a hopefully pretty picture earlier this weekend because I haven’t done anything like this in a while. I was going through old files and ran across a bunch of renders I had done, but never took to completion. So, I figured, why not? I think I rendered this a […]

A House to Ourselves (Also Umbreon)

So, life has been interesting. This week, I learned that I do not know how to handle the types of stress I’ve been handling. Or I mistakenly thought I had a handle on my stress, when in truth, I really don’t and it’s causing me some hesitation and making me wonder if I should seek […]

Ravellenic Winter Games

It’s been a long week of still trying to catch up with things for work (especially since I was gone for 3 weeks) and in between all of that, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the Ravellenic Winter Games. This occurs during the Winter Olympics and the goal is to complete as many projects as possible in […]

Version of Minion Bob

This is from a pattern set I picked up a while back, but I’d only done one of the patterns (Kevin) from it before. I made a few modifications to it as I worked on it. I also made it for Russ’ mom who is a HUGE minions fan. It was time (and she really […]

Mixlace Poncho (x2)

I’ve been working on a few projects these last few weeks. And the first one I’m highlighting is part of a recent CAL I just finished. I actually made one for the CAL, and then followed up with a second one to give to a friend who is finding herself on a new adventure. The […]

That's Intriguing

Hopes and Dreams

This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I’ve also taken […]

Andraste

I am beginning a much needed four day weekend. I thought I’d start it out right by finishing a few pieces and started with this one. No special story to go with it, I’m kind of not in the creative writing mood, but I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m thinking of doing a few […]

Cozy Chic Cardi

I really didn’t mean not to write for several weeks. I’ve just been caught up with life, which, honestly, is a good thing. I am also now bound and determined to conquer the art of crocheted clothing. I have some work to do on that front. This is the fourth item I’ve made (that’s not […]

Quiet Weekend

Beyond taking care of the normal everyday things, we haven’t done a whole lot this weekend. I’ve been updating programs and working on a few things to spare. We haven’t had a day of just sitting around with no obligations or getting distracted with being out of the house. The puppies are even being lazy […]
