This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

I am filling my journal quite quickly and will be out shopping for another one very soon.
More cartoons today. This is my daughter as I see her when she is old.

I liked the last one most. Your comments and critique is welcome


  1. These are wonderful, Janice! Love the first one..that could be me, too! lol Surrounded by cats! I'm wanting to do more sketching, but need some good quality colored pencils. I've never tried watercolors. Your flowers are beautiful!
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. I have a question...with watercolors, do you draw the sketch first and then fill in with the watercolors? Thanks!

  3. HEY I resemble that first one! :D I need a few more though....

  4. What wonderful sketches and watercolors! I confess I'm not much of a journaler...I just jump into my paintings. As I look at yours, all I can say is that I really need to develop that habit.

  5. I truly think they are all so much fun! I love the cats ;o)
