"MARIE" ....

This piece was created using a series of pastel watercolor pens made by Tombow. They are very easy to work with and leave an appealing soft image. There will be more of these.

"I Don't Know ..."

The newest issue of this magazine will be on the stands on November 1. I have my very own copy ahead of time because I have a 4 page article showcasing my Sweet T Hoodies. Those who follow my blog might remember seeing the creation process awhile back. It has been a while since I submitted anything to the magazine. In this case, however, I was contacted by the editor who had seen the prototype on my blog! One of my readers had sent it on to her. She asked me to send the hoodie and an article about the process to her. An even better part of this is that I got paid to write the article! Does this make me a professional writer? Probably not, but the check is sure fun!

Apparently "Thunder", our resident black bear is still in close. This fresh muddy footprint is outside our kitchen door. Hopefully he will eat all he needs to eat and go into hibernation soon. Makes us a bit nervous.......

Recently a friend I had to leave in New Mexico trusted me with her very favorite denim jacket, to embellish in any way I chose. She DID tell me she wanted it to show magic and mystery. So there was some pressure there! I could possibly do that with paint, but fabric is a whole other story. Here are photos of the results. I think I managed it for her. Joan is a fabulous mystery writer! She has a special connection to the animals I featured on the jacket. You really might want to check out her web site at : Her six books are available on Amazon and would make wonderful holiday gifts. Books are always the right size and color you know! So, do check them out!
