It's Blog Lovin' Time

Inspired by Eden, I have decided to include a weekly spot on my blog to highlight FIVE other Bloggers and interests they may be currently into at the time.  It may be a particular post I think you might like or it may be to introduce a new blog I have found and want to share with you all.  

ENJOY!

Carmelina's blog is packed full of inspiration and, if you enjoy sewing, you may want to check out the gorgeous laptop cover she made recently.  I love the blues and greens!

------------------------------------------------

Jane is another creative soul who is busy at her sewing machine this month as she prepares for an upcoming show. I LOVE Jane's colourful pin-cushions!  Jane is pretty handy with a paintbrush too and recycles gorgeous pieces of furniture and accents for the home.

------------------------------------------------

In a recent post, Em writes that she is becoming obsessed with quilting and shows us the lovely quilt that she made.  Em even gives a link for her amazingly easy-to-follow instructions too. I may well be tempted to sew my very first quilt too. I have the perfect excuse with Michelle and Alex's baby due in a couple of months.

------------------------------------------------

Eden has been busy creating some eye-catching bookmarks in fabulous colours. Eden's blog is chock full of bright, happy art and her word art is FANTASTIC!

------------------------------------------------

And, last but not least, my IRL (in real life) friend, Judy, who is reasonably new to blogging but has been painting for many years. Judy and I first met online back in 2002 through a Yahoo painting list and we've been good friends ever since. In recent years, Judy has taken up a very keen interest in Scratchboard Art and her finished pieces just blow me away. They are SO realistic and well worth a look-see! Check out her latest piece - a majestic lion - here. Another lion here. And one of my favourites here.

------------------------------------------------

I hope you enjoy their posts as much as I did.

~ Love, light and peace ~

  2. Hi Serena, thanks for sharing. I will definitely be checking these ladies out for inspiration. Of course, I already visit Carmelina every day. Her's and your art journals are just magnificent. So sorry to hear of your pins and needles sensation. I get that but know it stems from sitting at a computer all day at school in a chair that is not ergonomic at all. I have scoliosis in my lower back so the sitting is not helping. The prickly feeling sometimes stays with me for days. Ugh! I am glad to hear that you researched the medication the neurologist wanted to put your son on. It is sickening these days how some doctors think they can just prescribe medicine and folks are supposed to take it without question. Even sadder is that many folks do that without question and then the results are devastating. Wishing you and yours all the best. Have a great weekend. Tammy

  3. Hi Serena!
    Thanks so much for stopping by, sorry your 'ride' has been bumpy lately too. Must be something in the artist universe that is all wonky? :)
    These are some great blogs, thanks for sharing! I really enjoyed Judy's scratch board work as my son has done some of that also. It's amazing to see!
