Birds of a feather…..


Penny- the Power Shopper…..she shops till she drops 2-3 times a year, because she gets so overwhelmed at all the choices in the stores. If she finds something she likes and it fits well she’ll buy 2 or 3 of the same item. Because she knows once she leaves she won’t be back for months and her favorite item will have moved on.

The thing I like about the watercolor moleskine pads is the amount of eraser abuse they can take. These bird drawings are when I use my eraser the most. Once I get the basic bird-bod, I’ll draw the legs next. I have a hard time with the shoes. Hard to put little bird toe-claws into people shoes, but I do my best. I wanted to draw Penny holding a coke as she shopped, but she ran out of hands! Can’t you just hear her saying, “Get me out of here already, my feet are killing me in these shoes!” I used to shop in styling-type shoes, but no more. It’s all about comfort for me these days! I’m so American!

I really wish you'd let us know what is in Penny's shopping bag. By the looks of her, I think she has something good to eat when she gets back to her nest.

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!
