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.

more from sketchbook...........
I have done one of these for each season. Not sure if I showed the summer and Spring yet. I know I didnt show winter. Now keep in mind I am not trying for realism here.
I suppose I am looking for ideas for cards or kids pictures.
really I am just doodling and having fun, you cant see it here but most of these have glitter on them. I bought Martha Stewart glitter pens and tonight will get another set so I have more colours.
I dont seem to be able to get good pictures but that's OK this is just to keep a record somewhere of what I do.
Mary had a little lamb, would this subject make a good kiddies room picture with a bit more detail added?
I would appreciate some ideas what to do with some of these ideas. Do you think its worth making the effort and using proper paper making some of the images to sell? Or are they really not good enough. I would like to do some simple stuff............real pictures take a long time and I do not think they would sell at all. I also need ideas of what to paint on. It does not have to be watercolour or pencil as these are. I have done some decorative painting. That is quite successful.
