Feb-write-ary, Springtime Dreams and Art ~

Do you like quiet and turtle-paced days?  

I adore them.

  I love days at home, reading, dreaming of warm spring days and long hours in the studio cutting, painting and writing short stories to go along with my art.

As some of you already know, I often write short stories that correspond with my collage pieces.  With the slower days at Winter's end upon me, I find myself drifting, concentrating less on my writing and more on my garden planning. keep me in line, I've decided to sign up for Feb-write-ary.

Feb-write-ary is a write-a-thon hosted by The Crumbling Spine (my daughter).

With my word count goal at only 5,000 words, I think this will be a great way for me to write the 4 or 5  short stories that I need to write and 5,000 words is a realistic count! :-)

While preparing for Feb-write-ary, I've kept busy with other goodnesses too.

Valentine's Day cupcakes ~ 

Playing with my puppies.
Artist in Residence ~

Trying new things.
Cappuccino Stout (who knew it would be so delicious?) ~

Stopping to ponder and appreciate the things that I hold dear.
This Three Little Pigs flowerpot was given to me by a long-gone friend.
I am over the moon in love with this vintage piece ~

There is always time to listen to music...
 the notes and chords that blend and mix my life with my art ~

  Creating foxy paper dolls that will soon be adhered to my collage world. 
Meet Mr. Jubal Stepp ~ 

Do you dream of flowers?  

I do.

I dream of purple lovelies on a rustic fence ~

The spicy and exotic scent of Plum blossoms ~ 

Confetti pinks and blues make me hopeful.

Future Nectarines and ethereal skies ~ 

...and, I count the days until the annual Sweet Pea patch gifts me with countless bouquets ~ 

I cherish my time in the studio.    

My work?  My play?
Who can tell the difference anyway?

Works in Progress ~ 

These two pieces have been listed in my Online Shop ~

This piece can now be purchased in a Print Version AND, it's also the $10.00 Daily Special you can tell by this blog post (probably by all my blog posts), my mind tends to scatter.
Meandering and jumping from one idea to another.
One dream to another.

Knowing that I truly need to get my short stories written, Fe-write-ary is just the thing I need.

Once the write-a-thon is over, I'll share the stories along with their corresponding art right here on my blog.

Until Next Time:

Hey! What are you listening to? I saw the album covers but couldn't make out much else. Give us some listening inspiration, please!

Well, thank you for the piano inspiration! I was so happy the original sold AND it is in very good hands too.

Wonder if it's still snowing at your place?

Ahhhh....I'm listening to Gillian Welch and Imaginaerum by Nightwish. Gillian's CD is sort of dreamy folksy bluegrassy. Nightwish is a Finnish Symphonic Metal group. I love all sorts of music.

What do you listen to?

Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo
