something new.....

I just finished this piece. Recognize the trout??? I did not use my originals..... I copied them and made them smaller. My scanner cut off an inch on the right side so you do not see the third bird or the tail of the large trout.
Talk to you soon,

Well..... first I must apologize for the many typos in my last post. I rushed through and I suppose in my mind it sounded o.k. . I have been thinking a lot lately about where I should be in my work or really where I want to go. Because I am working in the school, there is not as much time to be creative...... when I am it really matters. So, I signed up for this . We will see how it all turns out.

It has just occurred to me that although each of us are so so tiny in the world ..... mere whispers ..... we individually have so much power to change everything. A single action can make a change . Our tiny whisper can transcend to a larger voice. This is not a real deep concept.... it is pretty simple. Be kind .... be good.... try your best.... and believe that your voice will be heard.

1st day of school!!

Today was the boys and my first day of school. Would you think with all the pictures I take , I would have taken a photo??? Anyway..... here are some photos of our last weeks of summer.

The above is Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens. They have their training camp
30 min. away, so I took the boys. I could not believe how close we got.

Wearing their colors they were in awe .

oh, how I wish we were still there.
I am finishing up a collage and have another shortly behind it.
Pictures coming soon..... I promise!

Look what I bought!!!!

If you do not already know..... I am in love with Trout. Really! My favorite book is Trout of the world. I love all fish..... but I truly love trout.

I found this vintage postcard on etsy and had to get it. I can not wait to see it in person. I love the red truck and the contrasting sky , and look at that huge trout!

Love this chunky Letter S!

I am not sure what I would do with this box..... look at the richness in the color. This shop
also has fabulous little globes!

I am back.....sort of

I had a great time while at the shore. I always do and seem to cry just a little as we pull away on the trek home. I am still in the midst of unpacking and carrying on with our busy life. I start my official job with the school in the am and the kids are back in full swing next week with school , baseball..... craziness! I want to get some collages started so I can work whenever the opportunity allows. I am bursting at the seams with ideas...... so I should have some things to show you soon. In the meantime, I have some random pictures of our trip.

I love the old rusty gates with fresh new vines.....

The world whizzing by never stopping.

The stillness in the sound of the sea and the smell of laziness.

The many shadows I chased ......

The wonderful memories with family......
