Day 151 – Zen Tangle

I had never heard of a Zentangle. Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. The concept was created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts as a form of meditation – a type of art that provides a sense of freedom and well-being! Their motto is “Anything is possible […]

Day 119 – A Tweet Tart

Twitter. I was terrified of Twitter – seriously frozen with terror. I also thought why the heck would anyone use that? Why would I care about the exact location of my friends unless there is some real need to know. The idea of getting a play by play of a yummy meal is a more appealing […]

Day Ninety one – Dare to Compare!

You just can’t compare them! Tonight I was thinking about classic mis-communication.  It happened to me big time today on a project I’m working on for a web redesign for Coupon Evolution.com.  Since I happen to be related to the visionary behind the company, we thought we were talking the same language and had the same […]

Day Eighty nine – a weed is but an unloved flower…

A weed is but an unloved flower. – Ella Wheeler Wilcox I love to garden so this sentiment comes with a caveat… A morning glory opening in bright purples, pinks, and coneflower blues to the morning sun is related to what we consider a big old pest here in Colorado – bind weed!  It wraps […]

Day Eighty eight – All Heart and One Apple

I’m amazed by the wonderful people I’m meeting and their support and encouragement keeps me going. This piece was inspired by them – their love surrounds me everyday and this week it is especially needed.  As most of you know, I get an I.V. infusion of a biologic medication called Remicade to help control my […]

Day Seventy eight – Pop goes the Apple!

My favorite Christmas show is Rudolf the Red Nosed Raindeer – and it’s because of the land of misfit toys and Charlie-in-the-Box was the misfit in chief. Growing up I always felt like I didn’t fit in.  I was too tall, too skinny (then not now – lol), the new girl (constantly the new girl), […]

Day Seventy six – Bee Hive Apple

I am so excited to tell you about Henri & the Bee! A story by a 5th grader by the name of Katherine and her dad Jeff, about a a dog named Henri who dreams of travels across the country and through the seasons in search of a sweet treat. Helped by a friendly bee, […]

Day Seventy one – Narnia Apple

I love the Chronicles of Narnia. I read a few of the books in the series as a kid and imagined myself climbing into the wardrobe and appearing in another land.   C.S. Lewis has an amazing ability to put you right there under that lamp post and I can’t wait to see the latest […]

Day Fifty Nine – Which hue?

I love picking out paint colors.  There is something glorious about walking up to a wall of colors that exhilarates me – I get the same rush when I go to the art supply, fabric store, yarn shop or even Pottery Barn or Nordstom’s for that matter.  The possibilities abound and whether or not I’m […]

Day Fifty seven – Tis the Season!

Today is the biggest shopping day of the year!  I’m not big on waiting in lines and fighting crowds so I stayed home today but I love the Holidays.  I love the decorations, the lights, the parties and the food.  I love to wrap up the presents and change out the colors I use each […]
