I am sure some of you have gotten quite a bit of snow in the last twenty four hours. Here in Michigan we only got one inch. It is very cold here. Eighteen degrees was the tempeture that I woke up to this morning. To keep myself warm and toasty my husband made a fire in the fireplace. I want to share it with all of you. Please enjoy.

It's not that it is snowing so much because it isn't. It's the wind. The tempeture is 14 degrees with a wind chill of -4. The wind is blowing at 20 miles an hour. It is still clasified as a blizzard. Not many cars on the road today. They are saying if you don't have to go out, don't. I am sitting in my comfy house with the heat turned up and watching old movies. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Just a side note, The top picture was featured on WZZMTV that same day.

While taking a walk with sweet Bella the other day, we ended up by the river. This scene tells me that since the leaves are gone, winter is going to arrive soon. Winter is beautiful here in Michigan. I will take some pics, as the snow flies. Kind of bitter sweet.

Well, all the leaves are all raked up and thrown into the woods to relive with nature again. We all enjoyed playing in them. Bella our three year old toy poodle had the best time of us all. Thought that you should enjoy seeing her playing too.

Art is everywhere. It is the places we go and even the people we meet. A 15 year old girl and a 75 year old man. Only one song worth singing. make your own kind of music, sing your own special song, make your own kind of music, even if nobody sings along. Just do your own thing. Doing your thing is the hardest thing to do.

Since the weather was not co-opperating, the laundry was completed, the house was clean and everything else was finished. I decided to work on some doodles. I could work on these forever. The size of these doodles are 3 by 5 for the black and white and the one with color is 1 1/2 by 1 1/2.
Very relaxing. Please let me know what you think.

Since our Michigan weather is not co-operating I had to move my art inside. Today I am working on making new brooches for my etsy site. They will appear later today. They are approximantly 2 and 3/4 inches in length by 1 and 3/4 at their widest point. The black one is made with genuine turquoise and coral nuggets, also added are glass silver beads. The red one is made with genuine turquoinse nuggets and glass beads. Both have metal pin backs which are wired on. Please check out my Etsy site:www.artfulexpressions.etsy.com

Mr. Lew at the summit
Monday, July 6, 2009
Oh, what a wonderful 4th of July we had! My family; Mr. Lew, Sylvia and I decided to venture Up North. To take a little family vacation. What I mean by Up North is, we live in the state of Michigan which is divided into two sections; Upper and Lower. We live in the lower, lower western half of the state. We migrated north, to the most northern part of the lower portion of the state. A place called Mackinaw City. It is here we saw the fireworks of the 4th of July. What a wonderful clear night it was.

I have always created doodles like these, for as long as I can remember. I use a black Uniball drawing pen and sometimes I add a touch of color. I combine swirls, paisleys, hearts, circles, flowers and anything that I feel like adding. These doodles all come together to create an intricate design on mat board. No pre drawing outlining done whatsoever.
