Day 1 - AEDM & Nablopomo - Catching up

hi everyone!

i'm sorry i've been MIA over the past two weeks but i've had a lot happening.

there hasn't been a lot of art going on but......

i have been busy creating websites for myself and long time art friend, judy white.
so there's been a lot of uploading and banner creating going on.
it's been a fun challenge which i will continue to enjoy.
i'm quite excited to have my own domain name!

my website
judy's website

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

i've missed a few weeks in the 52 weeks of Me project so, to avoid another week of nothing, i quickly snapped this pic earlier today

week 44
week 44 - 52 weeks of me project

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

and, to make up for my absence of late, i've signed up for the art every day month and nablopomo challenges which means i will, hopefully, be posting EVERY SINGLE DAY for the month of november.  i've been snapping pics here and there which i hope will serve as inspiration for some sketching.





the art every day month covers all forms of creativity such as art, photography, knitting, crochet, cooking etc. so i figure i can manage that.

click on the images above to find out more

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

on another note, i ask that you please say a prayer for my brother who is having one of his kidneys removed tomorrow. it all happened very fast this past week when tests showed a large tumour. naturally, i've been very worried about my bro and i'm praying that all will go well for him.

i leave you with a pic i snapped while out walking this morning

~ a mandala from mother nature ~

isn't it beautiful?!

it's a LANTANA FLOWER

I can't believe a whole new month is upon us and it is nearly the end of the year. Time surely does fly! That flower is absolutely gorgeous. Hope you've had a great day. Tammy

  16. Congrats on your new website. It looks really really good. I too am doing AEDM for the second year running. I pretty much knit everyday so I like to focus on something other than my love of fiber for these little challenges. Great natural mandala! I love Lantanas. they are glorious!
    Many many good thoughts for your brother.
    Peace
    Dawn

  19. I love your website Serena...it really showcases your your art so much better. Congratulations! What program did you use for it?

    I'm going to try doing the 30 days of gratitude Flickr photography project as I enjoyed doing it last year but I'm OK with not doing it everyday.

    I was so glad you posted all of your art like you did. I love your journals so much and it was such a treat to go back and took at them all again. Well done you!

  20. I just realized that I missed reading your words at the end about your brother's surgery. I'm so very sorry that he and your family are having to deal with this. I will be sending him energy and positive healing thoughts for sure.

    That flower is so beautiful...I've never seen anything like it before.
