Time Out

As if I could be any more absent from the blogging world–my laptop has an appointment with the Apple doctor this evening. Not sure how long I’ll be without it; plus, I will be spending a few days with our daughter and family. Hold down the fort, I’ll be back soon!

Friday’s Hunt v3.6

Friday’s Hunt

I’m hurrying to beat the deadline for Friday’s Hunt. We’ve had a beautiful weekend here, 70s, and spent a lot of it in the Great Outdoors. Now, down to blogging business!

We are looking for Starts with F, Week’s Favorite, and Heart.

F is for Flower, Camellias are in bloom.

 My Week’s Favorite features a Mourning Dove on a blustery day.

Heart–I should have taken pics of some of the valentines I made! Good thing I played around in my art journal. Background stencil from Stencil Girl Products, designed by Traci Bautista. (Work in progress)

Share Your World–2016 Week 46

Share Your World

Wednesday? Who stole Monday and Tuesday?
My daughter gave me an extra planner she had on hand so now I can see where my days disappear. It’s much easier than remembering! 

Here are Cee’s questions (and my answers) for this week:

Are you a traveler or a homebody?
I lean more toward homebody. 

What kind of TV commercial would you like to make? Describe it.
Personally, I’d like to make them all go away. 

Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.

List some fun things for a rainy day.
Card making

Mixed media and embossed card recently made with my Sizzix Big Kick–shown in this post:

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Let me check my planner…I’m grateful for a warm day last week to clean up the flower beds;  I look forward to the Million Bulb Walk at Norfolk Botanical Garden–viewing two miles of Christmas decorations before they open to vehicular traffic. 

Well, there you have it. Please share your answers with us–you can link a post to Cee’s blog, or respond in the comments. I always enjoy reading your responses and getting to know you better.

This week the hunt is on for Starts with Q, Week’s Favorite, and Fall or Spring

This is part of a quilt I saw at MAQF 2016. I wish I’d gotten the artist information.
