Inspired by the drama in side and outside this week...
oh the stories that go on in my head

Drawing Challenge- Unexpected



Joke gave us the theme of "unexpected" this weekend for the drawing challenge...
and though not much in the way of the unexpected happened to me this week I decided to try
and create a little unexpectedness for you- those things that unexpectedly make us smile
are definitely my favorite! 
Check out Joke's blog for more of the unexpected :)

Well winter has come all at once this week
 with more snow than anyone knows what to do with


Poor Farrah has been "cooped up" until one of the kids drags her
out in the snow or she fluffs up and makes her way out to the front
porch...(which is where she is now) eating seed that the wild birds are 
dropping from the feeders...she's a tenacious old girl!


Meanwhile we have all been hunkered down inside keeping ourselves occupied
in one way or another- or bundled up outside clambering around in the snow...
Yesterday we had some sun but it's snowing again today and another storm is coming
in on Monday...so I'm getting really chummy with our snow blower...think I need to 
hang out on some blogs in the middle of summer about now :)

Feeling like it's the end of the month already- even though it's not....
We've had a cold and often sunny start to the year- with very little snow
that seems to melt the next day. We've managed to get to a few museums this 
month. I saw a great textile exhibit with my daughter and we always love 
the Museum of Science in Boston...


As well as a few very brisk walks on the beach-
the kind where your eyes water, your face gets numb and your not
sure if your nose is going to fall off.

Thank you all for your kind comments and feedback on my shop!
 It means a lot and is inspiring coming from you who 
are bravely putting yourselves out there creatively...
I know my world is better when you share yours :)

Drawing Challenge - toast




Our lovely host Veronica chose the theme "toast" for the drawing challenge this week.
I had a nice time with friends last night "toasting" my birthday so my toast this morning is a little sleepy...but that's OK. 
Toast has always had that morning sleepy feel to it or maybe late night comfort food...or food when your not feeling so well that is somehow associated with a snugly bed - so my little entry to "toast is resting for now :) Please visit Veronica's blog for more views on toast
and have a happy weekend!

Grand Opening...


Well I've gone ahead and done it....opened an Etsy shop
with my art work in it- whew! and here I thought I was having a
directionless year- silly girl!


This is my third attempt at a shop on Etsy and
I'm hoping this time is the charm- Please feel free to have a gander
at kdDonegan I would love to hear your feedback :)

DC weekend- 'Matchbox"


Joining in on Eric's theme this weekend for the drawing challenge-
Matchbox :)
and with the terrible cold we are under the past few days I have been
 using my own matches quite a bit to light fire's in our wood stove.
I am not alone in my love of vintage match boxes and decided to try
my hand at designing one to share with you...
For more on the matchbox theme check out Cerulean !!
