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.

Above are two "cartoonish" pictures that I like to do. I am thinking of note cards later on and thought these might be something I would like to do. Here is another

I saw someone did a couple of owls on a twig. I liked it and did my version of crazy owls like a bigger one that I did before.

This didn't come out so well but I may try it again.

More cartoons.............copied this from somewhere and changed it a bit for me. I add it to my crazy cats collection. Remember Clarence the cross eyed lion? That's why I wanted him.

Another thing I find difficult is male figures. They end up looking like hairy girls

  1. Oh I do agree with you it's hard to do males, mine are hairy girls too.

  2. Am loving them all and the little girls will look great on notecards, hugs Annette x

  3. You got me laughing at your hairy girls! LOL! Honestly, though, the rest that you created are all really sweet! I like them ;o)

  4. I love such original art - I find things that are "the same as everything else" to be quite boring - yours are delightful, each in their own ways. I love the little people on the note card. I'm going to try my hand at drawing some little people - in my own style - I need them for illustrating a book - thanks for the inspiration.
