ABC Wednesday - U and WOYWW

This week at ABC Wednesday, U is the focus.

U is for the United States flag - and unity.

Be sure to check here to see what others around the world did for U.


Each week at Stamping Ground, Julia Dunnit encourages us to share what we are working on and what the state of our work spaces are like.
I collect used stamps to use ij my art and I knew I had a lot of flag stamps. So I made a wee bit of a mess sorting the stamps. Here's my desk after I finished the stamp background of the tag above:

ART on Friday

I've been able to do a bit of art this week, as my husband is now out of the hospital and hopefully on the road to recovery.

Colour Me Positive
I can't believe we are so near the end of this year long challenge at LuLu Art. We have word that the challenge will continue in the new year, although there will be changes.
This week the theme is Community

Writing Art Tags
Here the latest writing tags I created - for inspiration.

I also created a tag for ABC Wednesday - T for Harriet Tubman

I only created one ATC this week - for a personal swap. I am not taking part for a while in any more swaps.

ART on Friday (on Saturday - once again)

This week my husband has been quite ill and ended up in emerg yesterday - and will be in the hospital for a few days. He has had a horrible cough and now has pulmonary edema. At least he is finally get the correct diagnosis and help!
So I am a bit behind in posting and creating this week.
Here are a few things I've worked on.

Colour Me Positive
The challenge at LuLuArt is almost finished. It has been quite enjoyable and has forced me to create weekly in my journal. This week the theme is enthusiasm

Art Tags
At midnight last night I had the urge to create - I just couldn't sleep. So here are the writing art tags I made last night.

Here is the tag I created for ABC Wednesday this week:

S is for Superman


I made several ATCs for some personal swaps.

ABC Wednesday - S and WOYWW and T for Tuesday

This week at ABC Wednesday, S gets the spotlight.

S is for Superman.
Here's the tag I created:

The words seem very appropriate in light of the upheaval in the past week.

Be sure to check here to see what others around the world did for S.


Each week, Julia Dunnit of Stamping Ground, encourages us to share our work spaces and what we are working on.

Here's my work space on my dining room table, first where I created the tag above:

and then when I was working on some atcs..

Here are the ATCs I created:

Here's my art table downstairs, where I sprayed and created some new tag backgrounds.

T for Tuesday

Each week Elizabeth (and Bluebeard) encourage us to share our favoured drinks of the week and something we wish to share.
Once I finished the tags, I made some lunch and settled down for my tea and toast - this time with peanut butter and bananas. My completed cards are at the top and my latest book to the left.

Typical shot of the trees around - with the rain and wind lately, most of the trees have lost their leaves. I actually caught the cardinal as well.

Time to share a few photos from the week for my Sunday Photo Share

Check here to see what shadows others from around the world captured.

ART on Friday

What a week and I don't even live in the U.S. 

It was a day to remember today - and the ceremony in Ottawa certainly was moving. Hearing leonard Cohen recite "In Flanders Fields" was hard. Hard to believe he is gone.

I created a tag this week for ABC Wednesday - in remembrance.

Colour Me Positive

This week at LuLu Art, the theme was about finding our purpose and passion. Teaching was always my passion. I defined myself as a teacher. Now that I have retired I am still trying to discover my purpose. I create and write but dabble more than am possessed. I really need to find what my passion is.

Art Tags
The only other art I did this week was to create an art tag a day. Here are the last 4:

ABC Wednesday - R and WOYWW

This week at ABC Wednesday, R is the letter to focus on.

In Canada, November 11th is Remembrance Day - a time to remember those who have sacrificed so much.

So, R is for Remembrance Day as well as regiments and the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry (RHLI)

(Learn more here, about this regiment -  Our oldest combat infantry unit.)

Be sure to check here to see what others around the world did for R.


Each week Julia Dunnit of "Stamping Ground", encourages us to share our workspaces and what we are working on.
Once again, I created my art tags at my dining room table - this time, rushing to finish before dinner.

I am also working on a set of art tags with writing quotes, so I finished today's as well as the Remembrance Day tag.
