Artsy Endeavors Week of Oct 21

I’m hoping to begin this as a weekly post. I often speak about how daily life inspires me. I shouldn’t even tell you how many photos & videos are on my phone - thanks for the large phone memory & extra cloud space, honey.

 I am working on a project with another Mil Spouse. I am so excited & honored to be working on it. This was one of my concepts Teamwork in ALS. It didn’t make the cut, but I’m thinking of making it into a card design.

 Beading again … Those that just know me as an illustrator & photographer may not know my first inkling of a creative business began in jewelry making. I’m even published!  These are going to be a convertible wrap bracelet or necklace with pieces of life. I’m taking  Eclectic Beaded Crochet Jewelry  class by Robin Dudley-Howes.

 Exploring & photographing sites of where I currently live is a big part of my art. It fills my bucket & creative soul. Frederick, MD is known for the local covered bridges. I took a trip to 2 of them. I’ll have to go back as the fall leaves are still not here.

 Another exploring adventure. I went to visit  Sweet Clover Barn . There are several barns in the area that open once a month decorated with vintage, antique & gift items. I love going to look for inspiration & support local small businesses.

Sunday Drive

I was itching to take some photos, so after a few errands I drove around. After living in exotic lands & wanting to take photos, exploring has become part of my every day life. I ended up in Dickerson, MD and the Monacacy Aqueduct. I am not so patiently waiting for the full bloom of fall colors. There are some scattered here & there, but I’m ready for all of it. I am a seasons girl & I feel like I completely miss out when we are living in a 1 season location. (Arizona, Kuwait, Turkey, and Florida - take note!)

Month of the Military Child

April is month of the Military Child. These kids are amazing. They move constantly & adapt. My kids teach me on a daily basis. I don't know if they realize how much we lean on them. Please feel free to download and share.
