Day 12 – Eggs

A Dozen Eggs Birds have come back to the Inland Northwest. Robins in the morning rooting around in the grass, osprey overhead building their nest after being gone all winter to warmer parts, and lots of Canadian geese who have taken to hanging out just outside of the goats afternoon grazing area. Lots of birdsContinue reading “Day 12 – Eggs”

Permission – Who needs permission?

  Permission? Who needs permission? Sometimes us creative types do in fact need permission to create, but oddly enough, that permission comes from with in. I was watching a fabulous video today from the Sketchbook Skool Blog with Danny Gregory and Sabine Wiseman about giving ourselves permission that addressed this very fact. Sometimes I feel aContinue reading “Permission – Who needs permission?”

Day 006/100 Spice Jars

Day 6/100 of my #100daysofdozens project How gorgeous are spices when you line them all up? I bought these sweet glass spice jars a few years back and labeled them with cut up brown grocery bags.  Interestingly enough, there were exactly twelve of them, so perfect for my project!  Not surprising that this sketch project quicklyContinue reading “Day 006/100 Spice Jars”

Thoughts On Creativity and Postcard Project Update

Did you hesitate before being able to come up with an answer, or did you just flat out say “No way!”? I would argue that as humans, weContinue reading “Thoughts On Creativity and Postcard Project Update”
