a snip of a bird's wing, an elephant, and a girl--show and tell
Hello and Happy Monday to you!
I was determined to blog something today. It's been way too long. We have been so sick in the Scott house that at times I sincerely lost track of the days. First Olivia was down with pink eye, then a nasty upper respiratory infection. Definitely the sickest she has ever been. I held out until she was feeling almost better and then succumbed to it also. Not the pink eye, but all the other mess. I am up today, foggy headed and moving slowly, but it's reason enough to celebrate. I'm celebrating the sun and the breeze moving in the trees; I'm celebrating my husband who just finished a run with the musical "Violet" as one of the guitarists. He put in countless hours learning new material and I couldn't be prouder.
I've been working in bits and pieces on a line of bookplates to sell on Etsy.
The first is "Ready to Sail." Pieces of four images combined. A snip of a bird's wing, a ship, a growing girl and the connections with her mother.
Then, there's "Hema, The Elephant Rider", "Lizette, The Night Violinist," and "In the Zinnia Garden."
I couldn't think of a better way to combine my love of story, books and art. The shop, called The Oddest Owl, will be opening next Monday. So, please, stop back by here. I'll be sharing more bookplates (my goal is to open with 40) and there will be a drawing (or two or three) for a set of your choice.
