some art finally.

I finally finished a painting last night.  made a new journal and wanted a painted cover for a change.   it was fun but a challenge!

Tracy took this photo of me and my mosaic I made at artfest.  Katherine England let me come during the last 20 minutes of class to get a speed lesson.  That night I did it in about 1-1/2 hrs.  then the next day I popped in, in the afternoon to find out how to finish it.  I am so proud of this...I've been wanting to learn mosaic for years.  

I posted this journal page quite a few posts ago...but since came back to it and worked it some more.  I really like it now.
I'm liking this just as it is...but feel like it isn't finished.  
another page in progress...it all started with the bed I found in a decorating magazine...it's always doom when I actually like a page...makes it hard to finish it 

more from Vashon

mmm...wonder if they have some coffee?  they did but it wasn't so good...their pastries looked yummy though!
I found these homemade noodles (made with nettles...my favorite weed to eat) and couldn't resist the packaging and their do-it-yourself country charm.  they are wrapped in a piece of parchment paper.

KVI point on Vashon Island

This is Sophie's favorite spot to run...KVI point on Vashon Island.  She hasn't been able to come here for 2 years while she has been healing from a leg surgury, but finally today was the day.
we were the only ones on the beach for a good 2 hours...right at low tide.  

someone must have been practicing for the tv show, survivor.  I tried to see if it was wobbly.  it wasn't.
my stash of rocks and driftwood for some future project.  recognize the bag traci lampie?

how I celebrated earth day

I stopped ordering CSA boxes awhile back but decided to start getting them again in celebration of earth day.  I got my first box today and boy did it feel good starting this back up again.
this was the box contents for this week.  all organic...all very fresh. a feast for the senses.
nature is the biggest inspiration.
tracy had these sugar snap peas gone in a snap.
and I couldn't resist the strawberries.
happy earth day, momma earth.

new pages


my fabulous life

I am sorry for not blogging for awhile.  Artfest took a good chunk of my time, then we had a house full of guests for a week.  Anyway...I'm back to my normal life again. 
tracy took me to the first day of the issaquah farmers market this morning and bought me a dozen red tulips.
I found some fun stuff at Anthropology the other day.  These things make me happy just looking at them while I cook.
I bought one thing at the artfest vendor night (was trying to save my pennies)...but couldn't resist this fabulous papier mache piece from katie kendrick
