Lots of nature, including a Girl Scout campout!

So, I've been busy with a bunch of things lately. One of those was a secret project I just finished, and in a couple weeks I'll be able to tell you about that!

A fun iris in my yard

Otherwise, I've been GARDENING because it's that time of year, AND the weather has been lovely!

Recent cooking fun!

I've been getting back into fun cooking projects lately. I used to cook interesting recipes all the time, but in the recent past it's been more about just getting dinner on the table. But I love the creativity of cooking -- and eating the results! :)

This is my black tea (Yorkshire Gold) ice cream with shortbread bits!

Since I got a fancy ice cream maker for my birthday (with compressor; it freezes everything!!), I've had a lot of fun!

Cyanotypes on Earth Day!

One thing that Claire and I enjoyed on Earth Day was doing a cyanotype workshop at a local farm. I'm glad we did! It included a nice informative tour of the farm, and then making not only cyanotype postcards, but a cool bandanna!


It was a fun process! Read on to see more!

New work underway! (drawing some hedgehogs and plants!)

 I thought I'd show you a bit of what I just started in on!

Don't be fooled, it's a bit different than just hedgehogs!

Book Character Costume

Claire had a special costume day at school, dress up as your favorite book character! I was unaware of this, so we didn't plan anything ahead. The morning of, C announced that she needed a costume. She pulled this one together!


She decided to be Orson Abbot, from one of my favorite books, The Paintbrush Bunny by Adrienne Adams!
