A Celebration!

Today we lift our beakers earthenware jugs… Celebrating Weird Bird Wednesday!

I have been posting a weird bird almost every Wednesday for over a year!  Thank you Harold for introducing the idea!  And thanks to ALL of you, my flock of followers!  😉

I decided to post the prehistoric “Beaker Bird” since it was wearing a cone-shaped beaker hat for the occasion.


During prehistoric times, the Beaker Bird’s beak (try saying that three times fast!) was about the size of a large Cadillac… But as time evolved, its beak shortened to the size of a Mini Cooper.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!  Cheers! 🙂

P.S. If you want to see more of my weird birds, click on the catagory, “Weird Bird Wednesday” on the right (under categories).

Creating = Happiness

I know that I don’t have to create EVERY day or blog about it.  And some days I don’t get it all done like I envisioned.

Yet for me, creating equals happiness!  On those days when I’m too pooped to party so to speak, I create something anyway.  It brings me JOY!  I hope that my creations bring a little happiness into your world too.  🙂

I wanted to show you how I added to my collage from New Year’s:

color pencils added to collage

At first, I thought it was too busy…  Here is a comparison of the two:

But the more I added, the more I liked!  Go figure!  LOL!

I added the extra details with markers and color pencils and softened the background with pan pastels.

I would love to know what you think!

Cheers to creating happiness!  🙂
