A Little Catching Up....

Many of you know about and participated in the Pink Project which is the idea of Monica. She is doing an incredible job of putting this whole project together. If you haven't been to her blog go there now! She is beginning to put the doll together and it looks amazing.

I was thrilled to see that one of my squares is right there on the doll's skirt!!

That face with the pink beading around it in the upper right hand corner is one of my squares!

You can see it on the doll's skirt about midway up the left side! I'm so honored to be a part of this project and to have one of my squares on the skirt! Please, note that these three photos are all from Monica's blog and I have permission to show them here. Thank you, Monica!!


I was able to get a better photo of the Easter bonnet lady so I've added her to my Artopia blog. I did that little cat painting below in the previous post in just a few minutes using my computer program. If I had had a little more time I could have done a better job on it but it had to be finished and posted last night.


I'm working on several projects that have deadlines coming up so I can't show those to you yet. But I'm still keeping to my goal of being creative every day this year. Some days it's only a quick sketch or maybe a doodle or zentangle that I actually draw but I'm still finding all kinds of ways that I am creative each day. It's fun and exciting to be involved in Leah's project. It has made me take another look at what I consider "being creative" plus I've seen changes in my art, too. So thank you, Leah!!

  10. How cool that your square made it to the front. I havent spotted my square yet, but I'm so happy to just be a small part of such an amazing project.
