March 27, 2014


I'm checking out a drawing class at Creative Bug and am surprised to say that I'm loving it. Drawing has always been intimidating to me and this class just opened up the possibility of doing the kind of drawing that I actually do like to do but that somewhere along the line I got the message wasn't "real". So I spent some time doodle/drawing and having an absolutely wonderful time. In fact, this became the backdrop for a new Creative Sparkler which I shared this week.


Yesterday we got over a foot of snow but did not lose power. We have never had snow-covered windows before but it was like a white tornado swirling around out house. Often when I looked outside, I could only see white. I found the storm exhausted and spent a lot of time in bed but then got up and made cookies. I hear we have another storm on its way and I'm just so sick of it. I can't wait to leave!!!

Whoa, that's a lot of snow! I'm so glad that you guys have kept power -and that you could make cookies!

Stress is exhausting and the worry of the impact of a storm like that is intense. I hope this weekend will be gentle.

Oh it is really REAL art Jamie and I LOVE it! Made a fabulous background for that page, wonderful. I have to check out their classes while I can too.

Yup, over a foot of snow and another storm on its way. Thanks, we're taking it pretty easy right now.

I'm so glad you are enjoying the drawing class over at Creative Bug! The drawing is awesome and it's fabulous to hear you enjoying the process and already have used it as a background, that is so freaking exciting!!!

Wow, that sounds like an epic storm Suzie - but I'm so glad you didn't lose power. The weather has been so crazy this year, winter just won't let go!

No late add for me - totally forgot to take pictures (again!!).
