WOYWW and Saying Gooddbye to 2014

Hard to believe it is the end of another year. 2014 has sped by. I have been reflecting the past few days on the year that was and have chosen my word for 2015 - BLOOM. I created the canvas that I will place in my art room to remind me of the message behind the word. (See here to how I chose the word.)

Here is my work table after finishing the canvas.
(Be sure to check at "Stamping Ground" for workspaces from around the world - a great meme each week)

I really need to start fresh - a new cover on the table and the paints reorganized!

I have great hopes for 2015. I want to write more and create art more. There are several challenges I am already looking forward to. 

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!

V is for Jules Verne,
As Wikipedia says: "Jules Gabriel Verne ( 8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelistpoet, and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his profound influence on the literary genre of science fiction"
Two of the novels he wrote are  "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" and "Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea"

Here are 2 of his sayings:

                                            "Where there is life, there is hope."

ABC Wednesday - U

Today is ABC Wednesday, with the focus this week on U.

here are two writing quotes by "U" authors:

U is by Leon Uris - the  American author who wrote incredible historical fiction ("Exodus")

U is for Lisa Unger - an American author of contemporary fiction.


Julia of "Stamping Ground" hosts a fun weekly meme where work tables are shared from around the world. There's So much creativity!

This week I was working on my dining room table  on some cards. Here's a look before I cleaned up - we do have to eat here!

Weekly Wrap-Up

My wrap-up of the week didn't happen Sunday - but here are a few things I have finished this past week.
The end of November say a completion of:

1.  NaNoWriMo - I was able to write 50,000 words and worked on several writing projects. It has spurred my desire to keep writing.

2. PiBoIdMo - I produced 30 picture book ideas and actually wrote a first draft for one of the ideas.

3. AEDM - I finished my zen page

and almost carved a stamp a day.

Here are a few more:

here are some other projects:

I came across this wonderful quote by Henri Nouwen and it is so appropriate for December.


I only worked on one set of cards (Christmas trees) this past week, although I have a number to work on this week.


Here are a couple of photos of the sky today:

(that is the moon - about 3 pm!)
