Library Critters

My crocheted critters and prints are currently visiting the Prairie Creek Branch Library, another fabulous branch of the Dallas Public Library, and will be there until the end of September. As enter the library you will find them on the left side of the hallway in a big display case.

Mike and I are power users and supporters of the Dallas Public Library system so I am pleased to share my work with their patrons. This is the third branch my critters have visited and they hope to visit more in the future.

You can visit my etsy shop to learn about my critters and prints. Enjoy.

Long Weekend

It’s a long holiday weekend here in the US of A, Memorial Day. For some, it’s time to barbecue and party, for kids, it’s the start of their summer vacation. Some participate in services to remember those gone due to their service to country. Myself, I’ll be working on a custom crocheted critter. The day job doesn’t leave much time to create and I am grateful for the extra time on weekends like these. Seems everyone is busy with some kind of activity, even the birds in my yard. Enjoy.nesting material

The Smell of Spring

My favorite tree is blooming. It must be spring. I can smell the tiny blossoms’ sweet perfume in the air. I know they’re not a desired tree, but I love the scent of the Chinaberry above all other flowers’ scent. We don’t have a Chinaberry tree on our property, but there is one on a quiet street that I drive on my daily commute. Yesterday, I stopped the car and broke off a couple of the blooming low hanging branches. Don’t tell anyone. Those branches are in a vase here in my studio making every breath I take a delight. Here’s some studio shots of those tiny perfumed blossoms. Enjoy.

April in Texas

When it’s April in Texas, that means it is festival time and the bluebonnets are blooming. This weekend alone, there’s the Main Street Art Festival in downtown Fort Worth, there’s a Taco Festival in Deep Ellum, it’s Record Store Day and lots of area shops have free stuff happening, the Bath House at White Rock Lake has the Art Mart, there’s a Guitar Show at Market Hall and best of all, the Bluebonnet Festival in Ennis. I’ve been to all of these one time or another except the Taco Festival, this is the first year for it. A few years back when we went to the Ennis Bluebonnet Festival, it was one of those perfect years for blooms, plenty of warmth, sun and rain. I shot a lot of fabulous photos and I’m sharing some those with you now. Get out and have some fun this weekend. Enjoy.
