Fishing Season Again

At long last ~ another photo of fishing on Lake Michigan.  Grandpa took the kids out with Dad to catch some king salmon.  He discovered it was not that easy.  Looks like we will be having a lot more sunny weekends enjoying the wonders of our state.

It seems like I am always focused on this album.  This is what happened last week for my family.  Stay tuned for more photos in the following weeks!

May Card Club

Been working on so many things lately, including these "all occasion" cards for my monthly card swap.  Every month we get an image, and then begin the process of creating something to share.  Luckily, we have less than a dozen participants so the job goes rather easy.  It is always a bonus to see how other's imagination takes them.

Crocheted Baskets

I can't believe the time has flown by since my last post!  A couple of weeks ago I started a crocheting class for beginners.  This is what developed from using Lion Brand "Fettuccini" yarn.  The yarn is very sturdy consisting of textile by-products, which almost feels like a t-shirt.  The results are sweet little baskets just waiting to hold lots of small goodies!

Day 2 Day Photo Album

Just added a couple more pages to my Day 2 Day Album.  This project is keeping me motivated to continue scrapbooking throughout the year, not just at crops.  I am so looking forward to Spring and a warm Summer.

Latest Socks

For a couple of years now, I've worn only hand knitted socks because they look and feel so good.  These two pair of socks just came off my "assembly" line.  Yet, I am so inspired by the other exciting designs I see.  One of these days, I just have to focus and knit a pair with all those spectacular yarn patterns.

Sock Knitting

Ok, I am really getting tired of all this snow!  My daughter sent me photos from up north and it looks like she lives in an igloo.  Luckily, I can keep myself relatively busy.  Between working on my digital photo album entitled "Day to Day," and my weekly art journal, I squeeze in some knitting at the end of the day.  I have to admit, knitting socks is clearly my addiction. I just love how they feel on your feet!

"Character" Art Journal Page

Finally, I reached the 4th Week of my Journal 52 group.  When I signed up, I was already two weeks behind.  Our prompt for this week was "Character."  In spite of the many virtues one may attain, so many are hard to continue to keep at times.  One trait which continues to shine for me is creativity.  I love to make so many things.  It's can be almost a sickness!  Keep warm, Nancy

Up, Up and Away

I joined an art group called Art Journal 52.  This was Week 1 "Up, Up, and Away."  Right now I am struggling to catch up since we are now entering the third week.  I was inspired by the grand daughter, Lauren.  Due to her enthusiasm for life and comical energy, I can only see bigger and greater things coming her way! 

Black Winged Shrine

I enjoy sharing my art with friends and my blogging family.  Sharing my work helps to keep me motivated to do more art.  It makes me feel inter-connected with a world bigger than my own.  This angel shrine inspires me!

Would you believe,I finally completed my first two pages in Panstoria.  I am creating a new album called "Day to Day," which will consist of entering a photo into this storybook every day this year.  Hoping to be more dedicated this year with my posting!  Happy New Year everyone.
