there is a beauty in time spent alone. Found on Dispatch from LA blog. I must find the time to re-watch the classes with her before they are gone. Not having internet at home is hindering this progress.
I've been knitting up a storm. LM helps with the blocking, he stomps all the water out before we pin it out on the deck. Lettering class still has rooms, as does the bookbinding, bookmaking class.

Watercolour Sketches.

One of these days I am going to match the colors in my traveler's watercolor kit to the names, then I'll fill in the color wheel I created in my journal. In the meantime I just pick the colors that work best for the vision in my head. Check out the etsy postings on the side bar. I'm back :)

Disneyland this Christmas

What a fabulous time. E's first time there. He loved every second of the 12-13 hour days in the parks. Plus the 186 foot water slide at Paradise Pier. And the Character Breakfast. Thank you to all of your friends and family who made this once in a lifetime vacation dream come true! Blessed Christmas to you all. And Happy New Year!

I've established a sketch every day practice. Again. It started out with just the sketch. Then I found I wanted color, depth and more life. So I started painting with watercolor. I like that better. Usually. I've also started learning instagram (Instagram">celestedouville there).
This holiday season. Give the gift of a mother's love. Please explore my etsy store for more lovely handcrafted items. Blessings.
