I have been having fun working on some ornaments and woods blocks. Also, found some birch cut slices which are great to work with to make all kinds of things. I have been inspired by the online class "The ART OF Holiday Goodness

ess", that started it all. Here are a few things I made.

A little chilly out but sunny so I am heading out to find a few leaves to sketch for an art class. It does sound like fun and motivating me to venture out. My dog is getting a little older so we both could use the exercise. I haven't collected  leaves in a real long time. I turned 60 last month so I need to turn over a new leaf ( no pun intended).
So I will bundle up a little, grab the dog, put on the 02, and make it a go. I wear 02 due to a long term illness and am doing okay with it, but the worst part is keeping the tanks full and lugging it around. I get discouraged and think it is too much trouble so I end up not doing what I want to do.

So before the day is  over I am going to do this... I may take some pics, too!

This was the bonus project which was similar to wanting to throw it out, then I covered it with tissue paper and paints and she emerged. I really like her now and glad I stuck with it-which I am learning.
This is my first one I've done in the class "Serendipity" which is a different process and I have enjoyed even though some definite growing pains.

Putting up another one of my pages I enjoy doing all the lessons from Life Book 13 but this is one of my favorites. It was the process and learning about layering and going a little farther with it.

I am taking an Art class online from Tam called Lifebook13. This was a lesson from Kelly H. on the "Eyes being the window to your soul", I have been so behind and worked on this over the weekend, it was fun and also a little soul searching so here is my eye.

Some art I have been doing at night when it is quiet and I feel the need to do art or something to release all these emotions and to relax.
I feel like I am doing so much searching these days I guess you could say my heart and eyes are open. Having recently lost someone I love very much is a heart wrenching time. This whole process of grieving is uniue to each person, but pain is pain. I am trying to listen to the subtle urgings to things and not brush by things I may have done in the past. One thing I know for sure sharing, helping others, letting others help us, and just connecting to others can make such a difference. I miss him everyday.
