Christmas baking.  My girls and my mom.  What could be sweeter?  (Thanks to Kim Klassen for her beautiful texture:)

How can you lose a whole day? It started out innocently enough - just looking at some blogs and uploading a few photos. Next thing you know I'm knee deep in a Photoshop book, trying to figure out how to organize my photos and use the program more effectively. I think I added to my knowledge base, but never got around to cooking dinner. Luckily I have an understanding family who will make themselves PB&J in a pinch! (I did throw in a few loads of wash, so the guilt isn't toooo bad)

Worked on overcoming my fear of shooting in public. Spent a lovely fall afternoon walking around Head House Square in Philly, snapping some pics. Ran into my teacher from a photo class I took - what are the chances? And me trying to be inconspicuous pretending I knew what I was doing! Nabbed.

Maybe there will be dinner tomorrow, but I'm not promising anything ;)

AEDM Day 5

Switched gears and did a little doodling for AEDM.

I learned about this cool tree called the Pohutukawa - New Zealand's Christmas tree. It can thrive in difficult conditions, clinging to the earth on rock faces reaching out over the water. After a rough day, I used this tree as inspiration for a sketchbook page. There are lots of things I would change about the collage, but the process was very soul-soothing.

On Day 4, I did a little zentangle inspired doodling.

My camera battery is recharged, so it's back to photos, I think!

AEDM Day 2

Day 1 Photo
Day 2 Photo

Okay.  I think I may have gotten myself in over my head.  I signed up for the Art Every Day Month (AEDM) challenge hosted by Leah Kolindas over at  The art part is challenging enough, but the real problem lies in learning how to do the technology end of it.  Now I'm a BLOGGER???  I have no idea what I'm doing! haha!  It's an adventure!
