I haven’t been here in some time and I feel a bit rusty. It took me a minute to remember how to post. Ha Ha. Yes, it’s true. Summer has been moving along at record speed. How’s your summer (or winter) going?

In just 3 weeks my children will be returning to school! The light is starting to shift again and you can sense that fall is coming.

Earlier this summer I started All Shapes and Sizes Watercolor Workshop with Misty Mawn. You can see some of the projects we’ve been working on above. Accordion books filled with shapes and making more books to fill. The books she teaches us to make are simple, no glue needed books. She always jam packs her courses with a lot of information. If you’re interested in learning different ways to work with watercolor I definitely recommend her course. I’m really enjoying it.

I’ve also been enjoying going outside every day and picking a small amount of our cherry tomatoes. The plants themselves aren’t doing well but the fruit is. I’m not sure what is going on with the plants. We went to the farm stand over the weekend and bought kirby cucumbers to make pickles (among tons of other veggies). They should be ready this weekend. I can’t wait.

About a week ago my copy of Find Your Artistic Voice by Lisa Congdon arrived. I was so excited to read it. She seems to know so many of the thoughts that run through my brain. I’ve also just finished this book. I think everyone should read it.

I have knitting and other fiber projects and dreams to share but I will save that for another post. I won’t be gone for so long this time.

See you soon.
