Piccolo

Piccolo was very proud of her double chins because when she sang, they vibrated and produced the most beautiful sound through the hole in her neck, almost like a small flute… a Piccolo:

Double chins CAN be beautiful!! Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

A Donkey-Pig

I was went to target practice yesterday… with a paint brush and acrylic paint!

431BFA1C-FDA4-4011-B5C6-D92093192C9E

It was an experiment in mixing and layering opaque acrylic paints.  I started with a base of yellow, red and blue.  I mixed variations with white, gray and black paint.

Below is a sample of each one on one page:

I’m not real excited about the colors and found the exercise a bit tedious.  Yet, it was good practice with learning to use a paint brush in small spaces.

I created this donkey-pig with overlapping circles:

I learned this technique in Carla Sonheim’s 365 – Creating Art Everyday online class.

I hope you are on target for a fabulous day!

Cheers! 🙂

But this silly Yak wouldn’t talk back… Can you believe that?!!

If you are feeling out of wack, I hope today’s post puts you back on track!

Or at least gives you a smile! 🙂

Happy weird bird animal Wednesday!

A Bird’s Eye View

Today’s weird bird is very wise…

9B7F46FD-02F9-4994-93E1-4F8659E50615

The Mountaineer bird has a mountain top view of the world!

From the book, “Finding The Gift,” Angela Howell writes for January 2, “Open land steals my breath away, it’s so beautiful.  I see freedom, opportunity, stillness, serenity, and acceptance.  I feel captivated and present.  I see untouched land and feel like anything is possible.  I feel called and inspired to do and be something great.  I feel a direct connection to my higher guidance and inner knowing, and I’m quieted so I can listen.”

What does a bird’s eye view do for you?  I hope it empowers you to begin!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

I think Chocolate Cream Pie is definitely a slice of heaven! 😉

Do you see any strange animals in the clouds?

A Button Tree?

Carla Sonheim’s assignment for her online 365-day video class was to plant something other than a seed… and describe what would grow!

So I wrote a sweet poem and created A Button Tree:

Maybe it could be a song for a child’s book like this one?

I found this joyful “Thanksgiving” song in it that you may enjoy:

I like that last line, “Happy hearts and thankful…” may this give you the reason why.

Cheers! 🙂

Patterned Socks

I wrote a little Limerick for you today…

There once was a red-tailed hawk,

Who liked to wear patterned socks,

He was quite the sight,

Especially in flight…

All birds thought his socks made him rock!!

I’m wearing my patterned socks today, how about you?!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers!  🙂

A Little Something Sweet

I don’t know about you…

But my day is not complete without a piece of chocolate!

Right after lunch, I need a little something sweet – like a Hershey’s Kiss with Almonds or a Dove wrapped dark chocolate.  It just makes me feel loved! 🙂

Today’s weird bird is about giving yourself a little love – perhaps a piece of chocolate?

What is your favorite chocolate?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂
