Sometimes I just feel like making a mess.

Monday, December 10, 2007


I just finished packing up a job and my desktop is
messy. I still have Christmas cards to make, presents
to wrap and more work to finish before Christmas.

But first I have a snowy road to explore.

I was tagged last week by my friend Edna and I'm just now getting around to it.

Here’s how it goes: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names (see below), then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

So. 8 things about me.

1. I wish I was a more enthusiastic housekeeper.

2. I love to hunt for wild mushrooms....

3. ... but I never eat anything I'm not sure of.

4. I do not run very fast.

5. I love to read.

6. I am not always happy with what I paint.

7. Sometimes I just need to sit and think.

8. Sometimes I worry.

There. Unfortunately between Edna and everyone she got to, I think all my blogging friends have already been tagged.

I need to get out more.

Owl Project

I am happy to be taking part in the Keene State Owl Project.
Keene State holds a great Children's Literature Festival
every year. They also house an impressive amount of original
artwork from picture books. In support of that, they asked
picture book artists to create an original piece on an owl,
the school's mascot.

wild sock population around here under control.

Robert's Snow 2007

Last winter between Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day
we had more snow than anyone can remember. Shoveling
out was a never ending burden, and the snow we had looked
so forward to felt more like a curse.

But when I took a break and looked up at the snowy sky
I had never seen anything so beautiful.

Hopefully Robert's Snow can bring the same kind of joy to a difficult task.

I'm feeling very conflicted. I spend a good part of my
days drawing cute and happy mice, but for the last
few months, mice have been the enemy. They have
invaded my home. Drastic measures are called for.

Not to worry. The crocuses have finally arrived, poking
their heads up through the old dirty snow. Spring is finally
on it's way!

Wednesday, April 18, 2007


Seriously! For the last 14 days, snow has
fallen. I worry for my crocuses.

Spring is almost here. Everything is gray and brown,
melty and muddy. The air smells wet, smoky and sweet.

Not Again!

All through December and
January it seemed like Winter
would never get here. Now that
it is March and we're all thinking
of Spring, Winter is finally
asserting itself.
