Paula S In New Mexico

I'm having fun with the Pure Experimentation "Remains of the Day" journal making group. This is my first round, I used some old tie silk and vintage lace that my friend Sandy gifted me. I'm not sure I'm please with it and so I'm off to work on another one today.

Stitch Alchemy Pony and Heart


The pony inspiration came from Samantha Jenkins.
Take a look at her charming pony ornament
in the most current Cloth Paper Scissors.
On page 67 she even provides the
pony pattern.

Stitch Alchemy Bird Crazy

I'm loving these birds !!!!









Studio Cleanup

It isn't one of those studios you see in the magazine....
how in the world do they ever do anything in such
pristine surroundings?????? I have precious little
time for creativity and use what I do have to make art....
not that there is anything wrong with the
"beautiful studio"
but jeez, I just can't keep it all together as it is !!!!

If you are one of those
"beautiful studio" people,
please tell me
HOW DO YOU DO IT !!!
Come to
my house and gussy up this space !!


These shelves are so cool !!!!
My husband is a GOD......

10 days was not enough

After all these years I still long

How would our lives be

Some things happen and

the world is forever changed

Oh, what is life and floating amid debris in the abyss......

So does that title lead you believe I've gone off the deep end?

Well sometimes I think I have in a way.

Still holding down the day job. And yes, yes, I know many of you are smacking me up side the head because any job is good these days.......I know, I know. But today was one of those days where I wished for another life. For days in my studio. For no controversy. For happiness in those around me. For abundance (of any kind, really).

And yes, yes, I know there is plenty to be thankful for. The job of course, without which I would not be able to afford much if anything, and would not be planning a trip to visit my delightful grand daughter in January.

blah, blah, blah..............I guess I'm just feeling cranky today.

Oh! Wait ! Something is actually cool. My son (who is 32) recently read The Grapes of Wrath. I'd not read it since, well, forever. So last week I got a used copy and started reading. Such a powerful story. If you've not read this since a teacher held a gun to your head, I encourage you to give it a go........my, but things sure look different as an adult. A good read.

When can I possibly know?

How will I ever feel?

Will the waiting ever end?????

And if so, what color will it be????

Just some things to think about for today. I'd really love your comments if you are so inclined.
