Clouds, Sand, Kite and the Sea

These kind of days are my favorite. The clouds are amazing and so is the feeling I get when I see what a lucky woman I am to have my family. Sometimes I need to get out to open spaces to shake off the grimy crowded city life feeling. This beach was nice and clean. I don't know much about the beaches here off our coast, but this one was clean and not full of sewage from the city. It hadn't rained yet so I wonder what it looks like after a shower. This day it's perfect!

Toot finally got to fly her kite. We've had it in our car for months and this was an ideal place to finally get to fly it.

Mini Hanging Art Series up on Etsy

I have put up six new pieces in my Etsy store. Click here to see the other four in my Mini Hanging Art Series.




"Tunas"




"Ladybug Feasting of Aphids"


I'm so excited to have my Etsy store open again. I am still tweaking some things while it's open and I am open to any suggestions.
My girl has been so patient with me by letting me get all this done. It sure takes a lot of time to create, photograph and put up on the site - but I sure do get lot of pleasure in accomplishing my goals. All is good and now I must go hang our clothes to dry in our foldable clothes dryer. We are expecting some moisture this afternoon.

Please let me know what you think of the new items or my Etsy store
I would truly appreciate some feedback.
Thank You!

Drafting sketches and independence

I'm exhausted, but I wanted to post some quick sketches of some sculpy pieces that I've been working on and finally finished. I'm getting ready to post the finished pieces on Etsy in a day or two. It takes a lot of time to get everything ready for display.


These are some quick drawings that I had fun creating as part of my photo display in my Etsy store. 


There is something about measurements and drafting lines that fascinates me. When I finished these drawings I remembered when I took a drafting class in high school. I was the only "yound lady" in the class and it was a little unsettling at first, but that didn't stop me from doing well in the class. It's interesting how I was already forming my interests in details, measurements, and independence. 












I am grateful that my parents never told me that I shouldn't be taking classes that didn't have other females enrolled. They let me blaze my own path. I'm still blazing my way through this amazing life I've been given.
