Good Fences


I am posting a Christmas fence this week just in case Theresa decides to take Christmas off ... but, if not, I might be able to dig up another one :)  Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy Holidays to any of you who don't celebrate Christmas.  It is a wonderful family and friend time of year so enjoy!

NF DAM ... Digital Art Meme


My Christmas card is usually a message regarding something I have done or that has been important in my life during the year.  It isn't strictly a Christmas Card.  It is the time of year that I  like to say hello to the friends and family that I don't see often.  I can add a little note inside when appropriate, but it is mostly my way of keeping friends up to date on my life and letting them know that they are forever on my mind and in my heart.


The inside of my card celebrates the Peace Glacier in Switzerland ... Peace on Earth is, on a certain level, what
Christianity is very much about in my life.  I am also celebrating a 50 year wedding anniversary so it all gets included in my card.
 Some of you are on my Christmas card list ... but those of you who are not, are getting your card from me today.  I wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season and I know you would all agree that Peace on Earth would be a wonderful thing. 

"May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!"

Wild Bird Wednesday





Okay, so I posted today's meme yesterday ... whatcha goin' to do about it?  I'll just post yesterday's meme today and all will be well, right?  Soooo, I'm losing it, you say ...  Yes, but I am still having fun and I know all of my smart followers will figure it out ... Have a great day in spite of me :)



We had a bumper crop of House Sparrows this year.  They are everywhere and they fly around in a big flock that whooshes in and then whooshes out of the yard at will.  They make a major dent in the bird seed supply ... but, like all of nature, they have their place and I enjoy their little antics and scoldings all around me when I am outside.  Life is good ... 






Happy Wild Bird Wednesday :)

Mandarin Orange Monday



The Labyrinth of Overwelmed
I do this to myself every year.  I procrastinate until Christmas is almost upon us and then suddenly I realize how much there is to do in order to be ready.  So if any of you have noticed(or even care), I have been remiss about writing comments.  I throw up my post and usually comment to the sponsor of the meme and then run off to do one of the many things I need to get done.  I will be back  soon, I hope, but in the meantime I love you all, I love your work and even if I don't comment, it doesn't mean I haven't been there to drool over you art.  Message to myself ... Get With It!

Happy MOM Everyone !

Include women in your art she said ... so I did :)  This piece evolved with experimentation and ended up drawing from the theme of the African Drum Concert I attended recently.   It wasn't planned that way, but I am not at all unhappy with it.
So it is "Hump Day" here in the States ... Hope you enjoy every minute of it :)

Wild Bird Wednesday


Mrs. Cardinal

This little beauty is one of my favorite visitors.   She is a regular, but it is hard to get a picture because she is far more shy than her brilliantly colored husband. However, once it turns cold she is bolder and the need is greater so she stays on the feeder until she gets what she wants/needs.  Lucky me :)



Now for my tale of woe ... Izzi and I were headed out for a round of Frisbee . Izzi bolted out the door as always and I was right behind her.  We made it into the yard when suddenly I saw a pair of adult male Eagles taking flight, one from my tree and one from the neighbors.  By the time I got in the house and back out with my camera all that was left was a blurred silhouette in the distance.  And the sky was pink ... wouldn't that have been an awesome catch.  If only .... :(
 It is cold and gray here, but we are still surrounded with things to be thankful for ... Hope you all have a wonderful week.

Mandarin Orange Monday


This started out as a simple tree stump ... yes, another tree stump.  An old aged tree stump with lots of character.  I would love to show you the original, but as I started this several days ago and have been away at an Izzi trial all weekend,  I have forgotten where I fond it.   Good Grief!  But you can follow my dabblings anyway ...


As always, I wonder if you see what I see ... :)


Happy MOM!
