 Draw a bird feeder or birdhouse. I made birdhouses for years
and sold a lot of them.Some were wood and some actually had
stone on them. It was fun to see where they all ended up.
 A sweet nest I found on the ground last winter. Eggs still intact.
 Well another year finished.  That makes 5 years of  EDinM.
The year 2011 I didn't have my binding machine so I made
a sweet box to house my 31 drawings. After that all are bound.
It is a lot of fun to look back at all of them.
Thanks for sticking with me.

Almost Finished..........

 Draw an interesting detail of a building. I was going to draw
the wood ceiling in my bedroom but laying on my back
that long didn't work. I just kept napping.
 I only have one key on my chain for the car.. I lost my keys
several years ago, leaving me with replacing all the locks on 
my doors of my house. All eight of them. :-( Never again.
I have always worn my fathers shirts when I paint. 
Now I'm down to the last one. 
 Last Saturday I  think this van had to be ahead of me
as I was trying to get to a class on time.
But I must say I had a good chuckle when I saw this 
on Facebook.
Draw something furry or fuzzy. No problem there....
Cooper has the wildest hair in the morning
 and I a;ways have to giggle when I see him.

We have tennis ball size bunnies and then there are the large ones
My oh my do we have bunnies.............
Yup! And it started in the middle of winter.....
What a mess but my son was johnny on the spot
to fix it. You should have seen my water bill.............
The pipe under ground actually broke too....................
I shall return with the final drawings soon.
Thanks for bearing with me through May!

Crossed The Halfway Mark of EDM

 Max was just about to try this on, but I saved the day!!!
 How could they ask us to draw this.....cruel punishment
and NO I didn't run to the bakery for one, well not yet...
 Yes that's my wallet and the three cents I have in it.
 Many a good books have been read here with a puppy on
each side of me.
There is a great Russian history in Alaska. I saw some 
beautiful buildings with the onion dome. I found this 
sweet statue and have loved it ever since. My drawing
doesn't do it justice.

I'll be back with a few more days soon.
Pretty soon it will be over and my blogging might get back to normal.
Have a great weekend.
We are still waiting to go for that walk mom......

Ever Onward with EDM

I sure do use these everyday.
This is a huge hand knit sweater, great for cold
weather and snowy days. I could give it away but
I won't.
Yummy and oh so easy to whip up.
Ha it really should be in feet where I live.
"Are you done mom.??? Can we go for a walk,NOW"
"Cuteness how can I say no."

The Next 4 Days of Every Day in May.

 Hot red peppers on a raffia rope from Arizona. 

 Just a few of my painting tools. Don't even ask how many I have....

 I love sending my letters in art envelopes. Always fun to
find something happy in the mailbox besides those dreaded bills.

My favorite old watering can. It is now retired but has a 
place of honor in my display of metal watering cans.
I know, I know but you all know I am a little quirky.
To all you ladies out there
Happy Mother's Day.
Enjoy the day and I'll be back next week.

It is Every Day In May Time again

Yes it's time for EDM again. I have been
doing this since 2011 and love it.
If you want to know more and have some fun

You can start any time and there is no rush to catch up.
So here are my first four days.
 Draw a favorite food. Ah sushi and miso!

 Draw a nearby tree. Many moons ago I purchased 
a SMALL Coral Bark Japanese Maple. I loved that 
the bark was coral colored and would look great
with snow around it and beautiful with its lime 
green leaves in summer. It is now over 18 feet 
tall and it is gorgeous in every season.
 Draw curtains. Oh dear me I don't have curtains
in my house as I live in the middle of the woods.
So I drove to town  and found a shop w/curtains.

Draw bottle(s) of herbs or spices.
No problem there. So many bottles, so 
little thyme. Sorry couldn't help myself.

Anyway it is lots of fun so come and join in.
Back soon with more of what is going on around 
here. Such as when Cooper and Max met 
their first bunny.  :-)

Easy Cheesy Pull Apart Rolls and Cooper and Max

Cooper and Max sat by my feet while I 
went through my recipes looking for the 
recipe for Easy Cheesy Pull Apart Rolls,
that everyone loves. I was talking to 
myself out loud and I think they thought it
was story telling time.

Well recipe found and I quickly cooked them up.
They are so good. When I looked down I saw that I
had lost my audience .

That's how my day went. How was yours?

Many thanks to Rasa Malaysia for this yummy recipe.

Cards and More Cards

 Had to start filling up my Etsy shop and
the shop in the next town from here.
 I  experimented with some new ideas 
and techniques.
 I still love flowers and the 
sunshine they bring to me.
Below is a beautiful planter a
friend gave to me. So sweet
with the little bird nest and eggs.
 I hope to have lots of zinnias that I have saved
from seeds my friend from Italy (at the time) sent
me. Now she is in England enjoying life.
We have had snow above us and now the temps
are in the 70's. Crazy weather, a gardener has
no idea what to do in this weather.
But I'll try. Have a great weekend.

Spent My Birthday in the Tulips

 Went up to the Skagit valley to see the tulips.
 It was a sunny 70 degrees.
 The colors were spectacular.
 So many flowers little time
One of the biggest treats of all . The snow geese were in the fields. Magnificent birds. What a glorious site to see

Had dinner on the waterfront in La Conner. I would say I was
spoiled rotten by my son. He made my day very special.
