Day 325 – So… Sew!

The sewing machine joins what the scissors have cut asunder, plus whatever else comes in its path.  ~Mason Cooley This quote pretty much sums up what I do when I get my sewing gear out. I have no skill or knowledge of sewing – I just sort of do it and whatever I cut asunder […]

Day 324 – Saturday Apple

  Just enough in me to eke this one out today. Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 324 was created in ink and paint.

Day 323 – That’ll Do

“That’ll do, Donkey. That’ll do.” -Shrek It’s Fairy Tale Friday! What an amazing modern day fairy tale Shrek is. An ogre who finds true love with a princess who is beautiful on the inside. Shrek goes on quite an adventure all in the hopes of getting his quiet, lonely life back to normal and having […]

Day 322 – Bella Bluebird

How shall we adjust to the morning silence that does not belong In the empty space left by the absence of our bluebirds song? – Wendell Long Yesterday I got a phone call. A friend had passed away unexpectedly. I had only met Nicolle in the end of June but the news came very hard for […]

Day 321 – Lovey Dovey

“Really love your… apples, want to shake your tree” – Steve Miller Band, with a slight improvisation. This song takes me back and makes me sing it in the goofiest of ways, swaying my hips and hearing the tune in my head. If fact, since I decided to post this apple and topic today, I […]

Day 320 – Goodness Gracious

Oh my goodness gracious. I love to say that – maybe because it is so needed at times or maybe it is to counter balance the occasional cuss that slips out. It probably just makes me officially old but what pretty and polite way of saying… “seriously?” Funny how the two words taken separately mean […]

Day 319 – Leap And The Net Will Appear

“Leap and the net will appear.” – John Burroughs I first saw this quote a few years ago on my step-daughter Amanda’s facebook page and I was thrilled. Thrilled because I loved the quote but thrilled mostly because I felt so proud of the woman she had become. Leaping isn’t an easy concept, in fact […]

Day 318 – How Does It Felt?

I bought the supplies to attempt my first ever felted art piece. Two months ago! Yup, I’m a procrastinator extraordinaire which might make you laugh considering that at this point making an apple everyday has become such a habit that when October rolls around I’m afraid I won’t adjust too well. I can feel it […]

Day 317 – Hang On Snoopy!

It was a difficult decision… The Red Baron, Snoopy with the typewriter, I even considered the image of Snoopy hugging the heart and switching it for a red apple (that would have been cute) but in the end I went with classic Snoopy konked out on top of his now apple shaped dog house hanging […]

Day 316 – An Apple Carriage Awaits Midnight!

About a month ago I posed a question on my Facebook page asking people what their favorite fairy tale was because I was looking for ideas for The Daily Apple and I received some amazing suggestions. Initially I was thinking of doing a week of Fairy Tale Apples but I decided that I would go […]
