Day 214 I Like My Self a Funny Boy (Week)

My husband is the funniest guy I know.

These are the runners up......

Will Ferrell.

Days 121, 122, 123 A Girl Named Astrid

This is Astrid my lovely model who never takes a bad picture. You know all those legs you have been seeing on the 365? Well those lovely gams that are always placed just "so" are Astrid's. When ever I get my photo taken now I think "What Would Astrid Do"?

She has a lovely blog you should all check out if you need a big dose of cute!

Days 209, 209 and 210 Do What You Love

This project's subject matter is the reflection of everything that makes me laugh, that makes me smile. Everything that makes me happy.

So how can I not feature the project itself.

Being able to do this with the generous support of my family, friends and and you who come and check out the blog  has been such an incredible experience. I get to do something I love (my index finger and thumb might argue this) and share it with the world every day.

I started embroidery after my father had passed away.  My father was a very cultured man. He loved music, literature and the visual arts. My love of the arts I owe to him. He always told me that I was wasting my talents by not trying to pursue being an artist. I thought he was being a biased dad. I didn't go to art school, when I looked at what other artist were making my work seemed so.. for lack of a better word...lame.

But this project has taught me not to judge your work. Just make what you love making. I know my art doesn't make any huge statements, but I hope the project does. To do what makes you happy. 

I wish he was alive to see this project. I know he would have got a real kick out of this.

So I present  portraits of myself doing what I love. The first portrait features one of my Dad's bed linens that I always loved. So much so that it is now featured as my favorite tattoo my right arm.

Thank you all again for being so supportive. It means so much to me.

More Bike Mayhem Day 201

I am so sorry. But I come bearing 2 wheels (maybe even 3...) days 197-200

I am so sorry I haven't posted the dailies. This weekend was a whirlwind of my daughters birthday and Easter and just a bit too much commotion to post on schedule.

This week is an ode to this ailment we call Spring Fever!

Nothing makes me think more of spring than getting out our bikes.

Days 195 and 196 (new theme to start soon. I promise)

Pretty portraits featuring the lovely Astrid.

Speaking of portraits, I am quite proud to say that I have become the subject matter of one!

The lovely, sweet Elycia has done mine and I can't tell you how much I have been smiling all day since seeing it!

I'm Back! (Well Sort of...) Days 189-194

I had a lovely time on my get away. Lot's of tea, reading, thrifting and lot's of cable tv (we don't have cable at home).

I was pretty excited to get home at the end of it all. I missed my family.

So I got home to my girls, hubby and Mr. Giggles the cat ....


Yesterday I clocked in a record 17 hour sleep.

But I am reporting that I am feeling better today :)
