Winter Has Arrived

It is cold and white out there this morning and the forecast is for a couple of inches today and a few more tomorrow. I am not a big fan of winter - mostly I don't like being cold and I hate driving on snowy roads. On the plus side, I like the slower pace of life in the winter. I read more in the winter months. It is beautiful to look out the window from a protected, warm home.

I have Miss Z coming late this afternoon to spend the night and much of tomorrow. I am so looking forward to it. She is such a lovely child and she is growing so fast. She will be a year old already at the end of February - what a fast year it's been. And she is into everything.

I did a warm up this morning with the Posemaniacs site. Some of these poses I am finding really difficult to do, but I will persevere because I really want to get better at it.

Don't forget to leave a comment here to have a chance at the latest Andrea Joseph zine. I will be drawing late Sunday night and will announce the winner on Monday. So far there are only 15 comments (actually there are 16, but I gave my friend, Nancy, one of my three copies as a gift so she will not be in the draw). Chances of winning are pretty good, unlike some of those that I've entered and I've been comment #2,564. C'mon, leave a comment - you know you want this.

Meanwhile, I hope you are safe and warm and can find some time for yourself and your creativity today.



  1. Well, I already see progress in your sketches - I can tell what the position of the body is in from your sketch. Stay safe and warm - and yes, put me in the draw! I love to get my name in and wish (although I rarely win) and the odds are better than the lottery!

  2. I thought I would visit a few CED artists I've never visited before. Miss Z is a real cutie. You are a great artist.
