Swim Time


As you can see, I’m still on my birdie kick! And being that I am really desiring Spring or better yet Summer weather, I just had to create some of my sunshine.

I have not had good results doing hair with markers, so off I went to grab my watercolor pencils to do her hair in the only way that I know how. By lightly sketching the strands of hair, then using a small brush that I dip in water and apply to the watercolor pencil marks. Quite fun really! I do enjoy this technique so I’ve got to make a note to self to do more of it! LOL!!

And since my little birds can’t live their lives fully without a name. I named her too!


I thought this name appropriate because all my DH and I have been talking about when we mention travel, is Australia! Don’t know when that’ll happen but just laying the groundwork….laying the groundwork.

Hope you all are getting some nicer weather and can move yourselves and projects outdoors to get some much needed vitamin D.

If anyone is interested in a 4x6 print of a name or word. Contact me at elg921(at)yahoo(dot)com.

i have obviously been away for too long. i saw your bird and i grinned real big. is she a wading bird? her sandals are spectacular. sheila is a right dinki di name, too.
your name doodle is awesome. I gave up on my alphabet because it was too overwhelming to doodle things that began with the letter i was doodling. perhaps i need to ease up on myself (one more pattern to recreate, right?)

I love your artwork and your blog! You have inspired me to try some of the wonderful things you've done. I've never felt particularly artistic but it's time I stop worrying about what other people think and express myself! Thank you so much for sharing!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
