ABC Wednesday - R and WOYWW


This week at ABC Wednesday, R is front and centre.

R is for

Teddy Roosevelt - with some very wise words.



and

J.K Rowling - who's words made me reflect on our Prime Minister's stand against Trump - our two countries have been supportive friends for a long time - time now to stand up to the bullying of that friend. Many around the world probably feel the same way.



Check here to see how others around the world treated R this week.




WOYWW

ABC Wednesday - P and WOYWW


This week at ABC Wednesday, O is the star.

ABC Wednesday - N / WOYWW /TIOT

ART on Friday


Here it is the first riday of April and I am back after a short (needed) break.
here are a few things I have been working on this week:

Colour Me Positive
This is last week's theme at LuLu Art - creating your own sunshine!




CHALLENGES:
Tag Tuesday -Things with Wings




Try it On Tuesday - Botanicals
Go Tag Thursday - Stamp It



The Collage Workbook
The project I worked on this week was "Seeing Doubles". My doubles were used stamps - which I have so many.



Project 365
For April, I have decided to create a daily zen. I have missed creating small zen cards - these are a bit larger, but as enjoyable and relaxing.





What are you working on for April?

ABC Wednesday - M and WOYWW



This week at ABC Wednesday M gets the nod.

M is actually for a number of people who have given us so many wise words.

Nelson Mandela:



Gerald May:



Margaret Mead



and especially - words in Matthew that shine a light on the excessive pursuit of money over compassion and care for others.


Check here to see what others around the world did for M.





WOYWW


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

Once again I was working on my dining room table and making quite a mess.



I was also painting a background in my art room in the basement - a bit of a mess there as well.

WOYWW

Each wee, Julia Dunnit of "Stamping Ground" encourages us all to share our workspaces and what we are working on.

Once again, I worked on my dining room table. The pile to the left is a bag of gelli paper scraps. I love using these for backgrounds. But looks like I need to spend some time to create more gelli papers.

ART on Friday


It is time once again to share some of what I have been working on this week. I must admit that the past two weeks have seen me creating very little. My hubby finally had his angiogram this week after having it cancelled last week. It has been a stressful few weeks. The finding was that there were no blockages - not sure where we go from here now.

Colour Me Positive
I did complete this week's challenge from LuLu Art - how what we sow today, may not have effect for some time.



Tag Tuesday
The theme this week at Tag Tuesday is "Birds and Nests"




The Collage Workbook
I only worked on 1 challenge - Maps.



Speak Out Cards
Here are the last few "speak out" cards I created for ABC Wednesday:








Spring Vision Board
With each new season, I create a vision board that helps me focus on what I hope to accomplish for the next three months. With spring arriving last Monday, I created this vision board.(My OLW is at the bottom - cultivate)
