My new Favorite Thing!

I've had a collection of vintage plastic flower picks. I didn't really know what to do with them. I wasn't planning on using them to eat. So, I bought a half foam sphere the other day - and voila!

I am so in love with it! It's going to be my new centerpiece in my new kitchen! Yay!

Art Journal Away

I started something new. Bill bought me a blank journal the other day in Barnes and Noble. I was thinking about posting my drawings and creations in a blog! Here we go. Let's see how this turns out!

The first one is a water color design I made last night. I love doing this kind of art with my students. There is no right or wrong. Just lot's of fun. I added some ball point detailing when it was dry.

I started the next drawing last night and finished it this morning. It is based on one of my favorite dolls my mom bought for me at a flea market in New Jersey for $1. Yay! Isn't she the cutest little big-eyed Japanese doll you have ever seen?
