What do YOU do when your snowed in so much? Certainly I get more art done, but besides that I cook and bake. In the last week I made two loaves of pumpkin bread, two apple pies and a spinach pie-most of which is already gone thanks to hubby and son :). I'll usually have a piece to taste and then I don't touch it-mostly because I'm not into desserts and sweets. Hubby and son are thin and in good shape so they don't need to worry and are most happy to eat up whatever I make!
For T Stands For Tuesday with Elizabeth and Bleubeard I made a little Valentine's Day inspired tea tray:
Nothing says love like heart shaped goodies, doily, the color red and Paris!
That's the pumpkin bread I had with vanilla chai tea on my favorite little tray with one of my favorite mugs along with a vintage glass dish and napkin.
Here are the pies I baked:
Last week I shared a pic of our dog Annie after I groomed her. I just had to capture another pic. Here she is sitting on a heating vent to warm up when the heat kicks on:
This is some drawing I did for Lesson 3 in the "Draw Your Awesome Life " class. Unlike the "Draw Your Awesome Year" class these lessons are done in a small watercolor journal and honestly I really like the smaller format. This lesson was about creative contour lines, drawing what you see withoutt looking at your paper or lifting your pen. Yikes!
The second page of choosing a nearby object to draw was a bit easier. The lesson was more about getting down the basic shapes of things. I chose a bottle of lavender lotion.
So that's what I've been up to . I'm also linking this post to Inspiration Avenue for this week's theme of "Show and Tell" . See you on Friday- Valentine's Day- for a post full of heARTful inspiration!
