Beach Techo Drawings
Drawing moving water is a

Hobonichi Techo Drawings
Some days I don't know what
to draw in my Hobonichi Techo...
and then I might glue in some of
my own drawings. Sun and cloud
drawn on card stock in pen, and
Seeing the sun in the morning
starts the day off well, but my
coffee helps too!
Hobonichi challenge prompts
for the 14th and 15th were "cupid"
and "something that starts with 'O'."
Linking up for Elizabeth's T-
Thanks for visiting!

Collage with TV
Do you cut, glue and draw
while watching TV? I was watching
"Call the Midwife" on Netflix, and
heard the phrase 'Calypso baby.'
It tickled my fancy...so it went
into this collage.
I think this is one of my
"use up the rest of that black paint
on the palette" paintings...done in
a Smash Book by K and Co.
The Smash books have been marked
down and discontinued. Maybe because
they were a bit pricey? Or because
people were making their own
'Junk Journals'? But I have several
left in my stash!
Have you put anything
in an Art Journal today?

Techo and Other Journal Pages
Hobonichi Techo pages revised:
I showed the page on the left
last week. I've added red cherry
candies to the last glass container.
Pretty, but oh, the sugar high!
"You can't buy happiness...but
you can buy cupcakes, and that's
kind of the same thing."
It's a fun quote, and makes me smile,
but food is NOT love, so don't you
a cupcake makes
me happier than eating one!
Proof that I don't always keep up
from day to day with my Techo. I
will have to catch up tonight or tomorrow...
The Lego Batman movie was cute.
I think I need to view it again to catch
all of the Batman and villain references.
A little short on plot, but awesome in
special effects and animation. I just
love the lego characters!
Collage in another mixed media journal,
in a slightly larger size.

Conversation hearts in my Hobonichi
Techo...they are so cute, but not my
favorite candy to eat, y'know?
A bit of verse from Emily Dickenson
on the left. And who could resist a
rubber stamp with a sheep on it!!?
A weird shopping experience in
Hobby Lobby the other day...
just had to write about it. (click on
any picture to enlarge)
Did you decorate for
Valentine's Day? I am finding
that the candy, though pretty,
is not going to be good for
my 'healthy eating' resolution!
I do love chocolate...♥

Drawings in my Hobonichi Techo:
the happenings around here.
Even though I am not on
Instagram (at least not yet) I enjoy
doing the Hobonichi Challenge that
they have each month. (on the left)
I may need to find something to add
to that blank space...
Still enjoying the amaryllis...
Our silly unofficial US holiday,
Groundhog Day...quite an ugly
Linking up for
at Altered Book Lover's blog...
did you spot the coffee cup? I
really do drink tea sometimes too...
Getting a lot of mileage and
sketches out of the progress of
the amaryllis. A bit sad to see the
blooms begin to fade, and wondering
if I'll be able to keep the plant
upright when the second stalk blooms!
Am I supposed to trim the dead
