An Art-Full Tax Break

I’ve been working on my taxes all day (and all this week). I just took a little break. The light falling on my ruler jar was begging to be photographed. That led to a little Photoshop editing and playing with some filters. This tax break isn’t about money at all. It’s about noticing. It’s about […]

Your House Should be a Poem

We’re doing a blog hop over at the Sketchbook Challenge Blog. This month’s theme is Houses & Hideaways – one of my favorite topics. I was instantly reminded of a project I did for Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn’s 2007 book, In This House. (Wonderful book, BTW). The first and easiest decision to make was […]

Oh Deer!

Hanging Out with the Hookers

Hookers don’t always gather on street corners. This week they are hanging out at the Clagget Center in Buckeystown, MD, just down the road apiece from the farm. Actually, these particular hookers belong to the Mason Dixon Rug Hooking Guild. My dear friend, Joanne Gerwig, is a member and invited me over to see the […]
