This and That


Again a week has flown by! Life with all of the twists and turns has been happening.

*We now have a cute little kitty. She is super sweet. My son named her Cutie. And she really is. 



*I started this scarf over the weekend. My mom who is a wonderful knitter and crocheter gave me some yarn and it was out and I felt like making something so I started to stitch. So far I really love it! And to have something portable to work on is great.



 * I have been painting and making collages (first image) in my mixed media book. This was such a great purchase. You can paint in acrylic or watercolor. The paper holds up well and I love the large size.


*After many, many hours (and complete frustration may I add) spent trying to work with Wordpress.org to create a web site I think I will throw in the towel and I am doing a trial over here.  I really like the look of the sites and it is reasonably priced. So we will see how it goes.

* I am reading  The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp. Have you read it? Borrow it from the library if you can. She shares some interesting insights on creativity.

How is it going for you?

Hello Dana!
Don't give up yet on your website building ...
It is the most time consuming thing and very stressful and ungrateful too...
But after many trials and errors you will be very proud of having achieved what you envisioned...!
I do have the book... but i have not open it yet... I actually have a tall tower of "one day I will ead this" type of books...

Going good, thanks. :)

I am totally going to have to find that mixed media pad. I have a thing to drawing pads and notepads and just piles & piles of paper. I really like what you have been doing. both on paper and with yarn.

Give cutie a little rub behind the ears for me. She's very cute.

I love all of your flowers :)
Cutie is a cutie.
Good Luck with the website...
That's the second time I've heard someone mention that book this week... maybe the universe is trying to tell me something - I'll have to check it out!

cutie is aptly named. Yesm protable creative projects, like kitting are great, aren't they? and what? a mixed media book? I had no idea. adding that to my "someday" list.
deep breath...I was just considering a move to wordpress, as I feel like I need to be able to control my own content better. only problem is I have no idea what I am doing. And this is very discouraging. I hope the Big Black Bas works out for you. And I've been wanting to read that book, thanks for the reminder.
