Just for fun

This is another image from last weekend.After sketching for a couple of hours from life i felt like doing something else using some imagination.I called it "A plump princess or a happy birthday to you."I wanted the image to be as flat as possible.I used ink pen ,watercolor pencils and stamps.

Four sketches from the last weekend

Last Saturday my husband took my daughter fishing and I had some more ME time.I used it sketching from life in our back yard.I did not take long to find an interesting subject matter.When I was done with one thing I just had to turn my chair around and start to paint a another one.I had been trying to do that for several weekends but every time something would happen and would stop me from doing that.I used my favourite watercolor pencils Faber Castell and ink pen Pilot.

Some people call it fiber art

This is what I was doing when watching TV the last three weeks.When I saw that pretty yarn in the store I bought it with not exactly clear idea what I was going to do with it.Later when looking at so many craft blogs full of ideas and inspiration I realised I wanted a pretty, artsy bag.I think it turned out pretty nice.
I am still in this crafty mood that I started thinking about the next project.The problem is that I have so many ideas that I don't know where to start from.
As a whole this weekend was very productive and very creative for me.Yesterday I had time to sketch,I will post the sketches when I have time next week.And I also tried to make my own bread with wholegrain wheat flour and it turned out pretty good.It is so delicious I can't stop eating it.

This is not a skunk

This is not a skunk. It is our cute little kitty Precious.This is her favourite pose and her favourite thing is to be cuddled and pat.She is about two years old.
Ashley is our older cat.She is 8.She is shy and does not feel comfortable to be touched very much.Her favourite time spending is on top of our dining room table.Her main concern if there is enough food in her dish and she checks on it every 15 minutes.
We adopted both cats from the animal shelter after our old cat Murphy died of old age about two years ago.
