Summer is the time that I like to curl up in the shade and read a good book. So I decided to make a couple of bookmarkers with my silly fish:
I drew them with a black Micron pen and then colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.
I think I like “Baby Face” the best! 🙂 Do you have a favorite?
I am currently reading this book, “Sarah’s Key” by Tatiana de Rosnay:
It is an excellent story about July 1942, the days of the Vel’ d’Hiv’ in Nazi-occupied Paris. Have you read it?
I borrowed my book from a friend so I thought I’d return it with one of my fish bookmarkers.
I also made one to keep for myself – this one is double-sided:
I used cheap watercolors and Prismacolor pencils to color this one.
What book you are reading or would you recommend? I’d love to hear from you!
Happy Reading! 🙂

I started this sculpture from this cute bunny:
I then wrapped it in wire and added some natural do-dads to it:
Kind of scary looking, huh? Next I wrapped it with wool roving – you know the kind you felt with – and some knobby yarns. I also sewed on shell beads for the eyes.
I added a couple of beaded felt beads I made several years ago (remember the wool roving) and bird feathers for wings.
I received cat approval! YAY!
Sometimes I just need to create something really weird! HAPPY Friday! 🙂

Once upon a time, a cute cuddly squirrel –
Got way to close to a bird feeder… so the birds tackled him and wrapped him in wire –
And left the squirrel this way overnight. In the morning, the birds were surprised to find the squirrel had transformed into an unusual bird –
It still had the shape of the squirrel but it’s coat had changed colors!
And it now had a beautiful orange beak!
As the birds examined this strange looking bird, they noticed the feather at the top of its head –
“Ah-hah!” Exclaimed the birds in unison, “This is a Dazzler Bird!”
It is a very rare squirrel-bird that lives high up in the trees.
The Dazzler Bird is seen by very few people. You have been given this exceptional sighting as a symbol of goodwill. May it give you a smile on your lips and a skip in your step as you go about your day!
The End – or is it just the beginning?
