On my nightstand:
I am loving this book and I've just started. It draws you in from the very first page. It is not a book you can read quickly. You will be compelled to reread words, sentences and paragraphs over and over again, so they may penetrate and sink into your soul. I can not say enough about this amazing book. Ann's writing is riveting.
Following Ann's book I have this on my list. It is a recommendation from one of Ann's posts.
This has been on my to read list for some time. I am hoping to fit it in this summer.
I have been reading this off and on~trying to finish is before the new school year. There are so many amazing ideas in this book. Love it.
This one is for my daughter~she would like me to sew her some skirts. She has a hard time finding skirts that are not too short or too long. So she is enlisting my help. She has more confidence in my sewing ability than I do.
I am not a big fan of fleece but this book may change my mind. It has some great patterns and ideas. I requested it from our library but I'm not sure if I will give fleece a try.
I made this for my hubby for Father's Day. He loves Snickers. I first saw it on Pinterest. I do not have an account but it doesn't keep me from visiting. I haven't jumped into the Pinterest pool because I do not have a Twitter or Facebook account. I know~you all think I'm living under a rock but I have my reasons. One of them is that I do not want to be sucked into the internet and not live. I could definitely see that happening with me. So for now I just peek in.
I want to share a little more of my son's art work. He works on his drawings everyday and he has new projects all the time. He designates different sketch books for different interests.
This is a picture he drew of a Sonic video game character.
Pencil first then outlined with marker.
A scene from the Smallville tv show.
Some layouts for one of his Sonic comic books. He has written and illustrated quite a few of his own. We have sent one in to Archie comics. He doesn't like to send his original copies away so now I must email them to the company.
Recently, he has started drawing portraits. I am completely amazed by the talent he has. He has had some formal art lessons but not in depth. He is self taught. He is also legally blind in his right eye. It is so astounding that he can do such a impressive job. This portrait is a singer from the band Metric, which he loves. He drew it while watching a video of them singing.
