Photo A Day Challenge – Welcome May πŸŒ·

Hello (again) my lovely friends πŸ’•

I just came across this lovely daily photo challenge, hosted by citysonnet

‘Welcome May’ was the first prompt (yesterday’s). Great – the first day and I’m already behind. πŸ˜‚

So, without further ado…here’s ‘ Welcome May’ 😎🌷🌼

This was taken on my daily walk. The sky is blue, the grass is turning green, the cows are out – a perfect day❣️

Take good care of yourself! πŸ’•

Trying New Things πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I may have mentioned my creative slump here lately.

I did come across this gem a few days ago…

Well, that sounds easy enough! πŸ˜…

But since I’ve pretty much tried everything out there, I had to figure out what it is I wouldn’t mind ‘sucking at’ πŸ˜‰

During my ‘Journal-making-days’ I did some collages. And did enjoy it.

So, that’s what I did…in big 😁

I don’t hate it πŸ˜‰

While drawing the ‘Yoga Lady’ as a finishing touch, I thought I’m gonna try my hand at drawing. I know I’m not very good at it, but I do love it. And practice makes perfect, right? πŸ˜‚

Clicking around on Pinterest I found the art of Sandra Silberzweig. She draws abstract faces. I was drawn to it because of the abundance of color, and – let’s be honest here – because I thought I might be able to draw something like it. πŸ™ƒ

Here’s my first try…

That led to another ‘portrait’…

She’s not the most beautiful creature on the planet, but I do like how she turned out. Okay… I might be a bit prejudiced 😎

So I will keep on drawing πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• Let’s see where this will take us!

The next project I’m working on is this blog. I would love to turn it into a ‘mostly books’ blog. Not exclusively…but definitely book oriented. 😍

I do hope you’re all good with that, and will stick with me on this journey. ☺️

Have a wonderful rest-of-the-week! Stay healthy my friends! πŸ’•

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

If I stand on my tippy toes I can see Christmas from here πŸ˜πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌ

But – we have a few more doors to open. Let’s see what’s behind this pretty one…

Something amazingly beautiful from a very talented (and patient) lady 🀩

8 ft. β€˜Notre Dame’ in Gingerbread 😦 Jawdropping, isn’t it?

I made an itsy bitsy Gingerbread village a couple of years ago. While it was (somewhat) pretty, and fun, I can’t even imagine taking on a project like this! πŸ™ƒ

It’s just another week of Advent Calendar fun. That went fast, didn’t it? πŸ€— Let’s make the most of the suspenseful daily Door-opening nail biter πŸ˜‰

Wilted, dried up chrysanthemums…we all have them, right? So…..
