Something Old and Something New

After an unusually warm winter, February brings with it some cold air and some snow.  The Midwest has these dreary grey skies that get old for me about now.  I admit I get a little stir crazy this time of year. Just give me some sun, please and thank you.

What Moves You?


I haven't blogged about caretaking for a while.  This blog is, after all, about living a creative life and my caretaking is about me personally.  But art is life, isn't it? I mean we draw from our experiences to make our art.

It's the Little Things!

Years ago I bought a beautiful leather purse, big enough to carry small painting tools.  The problem with a purse like that is the bigger the purse, the more I carry.

Everyday Art


I saw this picture posted on my Facebook feed by the son of one of my "besties". (noun-plural for one of your best friends)

Gifting Yourself

I bought myself some Christmas gifts.  I always do. You know how hard it is NOT to find that perfect item you need while shopping for others!?  I resist most of the time, but I'm only human after all.  I did a lot of my shopping online in my attempts to simplify and it was awesome.  It really did make my life so much easier.  I'm so glad Al Gore invented the Internet!
