Day 30 - AEDM & Nablopomo - wood plane

I made it to the end of Art Every Day Month (AEDM)
and National Blog Posting Month (Nablopomo)!! YAY!!

I also blogged daily for Blogtoberfest in October.
All in all, 61 days of daily blogging...WOW!!!
I'm feeling quite pleased with myself.

Of course, I still have my 75 day sketch challenge
to complete which won't end until around December 14th.
However, while I'll still be sketching daily,
I don't have to post every day.

#61 of 75 pen/ink sketches

A wood plane
Pencil-free sketch in A6 Moleskine pocket sketchbook 
using BIC Pro ballpoint pen and a wee touch of Micron pen.

It's been a pleasure sharing this month with them.


We put our Chrissy tree up today.
We're a day early as we normally put it up on Dec. 1st
but that's okay.
As usual, there was quite a bit of upheaval because
we had to move the dining room suite back
 into the computer/family room
to make room for the tree.
Beau, #2 son, bought this huge fibre-optic tree
over three years ago.
It's lovely but a tad too big for my liking.

I do love that it's filled with a lot of hand painted ornaments
that I did some years ago.
I need to start painting Mikayla's and Madelyn's
Christmas tree ornaments very soon too.

It's been like a sauna here today...60% humidity.
It's supposed to be even hotter by Monday/Tuesday. :(

I hope you're enjoying nice weather wherever you are.

~ Love, light and peace ~


  1. Wow, 61 days of daily blogging?! :o You go girl! :)
    Another amazing sketch :)

  2. I looks like you are on a roll. Great sketches and a beautiful Christmas tree.

  3. congrats on all the blogging :D no room here for a xmas tree, and not sure what sky would do with it anyway, probably try to hide under it :p

  4. Nice drawing of the wood plane. A nice memory of your Dad too. Well done.

  5. Wow! Only two weeks to go!
    The plane is just cool because it was your dad's. I have always been fascinated by woodworking and will sit and watch any woodworking shows on TV--always have. That and pottery I always thought I wanted to learn one day. Now with my bum arm, I can't really handle either of them...but I still watch. ;)
    Nice tree! Lots of pretty ornaments. I can hardly wait to see what you paint for the grangirls!! :):)
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. lovely tree, we're doing ours on monday and looking forward ( not) to a 37C hot one here for tuesday... !
