Drawing A Day #163: Mother tongue

May 17th, 2011

I was lucky enough to visit Em this past weekend and finally meet my little nephew … I have to admit that I am completely smitten! It was also pretty cool to see Em as a Mom … which helped to inspire today’s D.A.D., Mother tongue:

Not that I recommend she use this method to bathe the baby or anything … :)

Feature Friday #40: Glass pearl necklace by Tracy

May 13th, 2011

Our Feature Friday artist today is Tracy, a good friend of mine who has an incredibly generous heart and very talented hands. When she’s not busy fixing people’s teeth (she’s a dentist by trade), she loves to cook and make jewelry in her free time. Today’s donation, a hand-made necklace made from Swarovski glass pearl beads and crystals, is a beautiful sample of her handiwork:

To keep her further on her toes, Tracy’s also busy with her adorable 6-year old son and their Wheaton Terrier who joined the family a few months ago. I’m not sure where Trace gets all her energy but I love the fact that she’s just a kid at heart.

Thanks so much Trace, for taking the time to make something specifically to donate to our Project – we really appreciate it!

And another thanks to Outdoorzy90 for including our Mama bear in her etsy treasury, Cozy Comforts:

Happy weekend everyone!

Drawing A Day #162: Spring chicken

May 12th, 2011

Last Thursday, I did a kettlebell class (talk about your great workouts) … and man, was I hurting afterwards. It took me around 3 to 4 days to recuperate which reminded me that I’m not exactly a Spring chicken anymore (although I’ll always think it!):

And more etsy treasury love for us! Putting it all on the line was featured in Lagoon by Dalim:

And Bushel o’ beards made it into At the circus by Thrush:

Hope everyone’s having a good Thursday!
