From my sketchbook....




These long dreary winter days seem to go on and on and on...BUT, coffee, music, and positive thinking have me gearing up for warmer days!  I have been sketching lots and lots of flowers and all kinds of spring and summer elements.  Recently, I sketched these sweet little flowers and berries and quickly had to add color to them.  Pinterest is my go to place for color collections.  I have a board of my favorite palettes that I draw inspiration from.  I ended up pulling colors from about 5 inspiration palette collections and I LOVE the results! Please let me know which one is your favorite?

Dreaming of warmer days






It is February, so the COLD and SNOWY forecast that so many people are experiencing is not a surprise.  However, today I was dreaming of warmer days and looking forward to the sweet birdies song and the feel of lush grass between my toes.  I started sketching trees and birds and quickly turned my drawings into a fun little summertime scene. I added this great quote from Henry David Thoreau as a reminder of the beauty all around us.  Happy Sunday Everyone!

Refreshing Sketching...

Sassafrass

I love cats!  I have always loved cats!  For over 16 years, my husband and I had three lovable, frisky kitties that brought much joy to our lives.   They will always be fondly remembered.   Now, we have a dog.  Her name is Sally.  She too is very lovable and frisky.  However, at 50 lbs, she thinks she is a lap dog.  I beg to differ.  Still, we love her...even with all of her shedding.  But this post is about cats.  Someday we will have another cat...or two.  They are just so cuddly and quiet.  Cats can be sneaky, sly, frisky and playful...all at the same time.  They are self sufficient and smart.  I thoroughly enjoy watching their sassy, carefree personalities emerge.  Thus, my inspiration for my new collection of patterns is the sweet, loving, curious creature we call CATS.

Crazy for Maisy

Oh my, it has been way too long since my last post!  Running kids, summer sun, swimming, golf, soccer, vacation.....so much to do...so little summer!  I have been trying to squeeze every bit of the sunshine out of summer which has taken me outdoors most days.  However, recently we had a cold snap and I was able to sit, sketch, and design at my computer.  Ahhhh.....so WONDERFUL!!  Oh how I have missed that!  Well, this is my new collection that I have quickly fallen head over heels for.  I pondered and searched several days for just the right name, and basically the name found me.  I LOVE IT!  I would love to know what you all think of it too.  Please feel free to leave me a comment.  Thanks so much!!
