Tikki was our buddy, our comfort, our therapy, our comic relief, and our inspiration.
She is terribly missed, by us, and all who loved her.
Gotta love sun stars, although I always end up seeing spots afterward despite trying to close my eyes while shooting. ugh…
So… Here’s the thing. I’ve been anti-facebook for as long as it’s been around. It’s nothing against facebook itself. It can be a wonderful tool… but I just don’t need another thing to suck me in, and I generally feel an awlful sense of guilt when I don’t keep up with people. The whole thing overwhelms me… but, alas, it seems to be an invaluable tool to market oneself. So… I finally broke down and made a page, as an advert, to direct to my website and hopefully drum up a little extra local business. If you feel inclined, please stop by and like something so I can get this page off the ground. Thanks :)
He decided he wanted to shave just like grandpa used to do and bought himself a fancy straight razor. After taking it for sharpening yesterday, it was finally ready to test drive. I’m a wee bit nervous about the whole thing but he was so excited that I documentated the momentous event. The end result was not lacking in several knicks.
The last six months or so I’ve working part-time at a fun little place for kids. My post is at the entrance, where a desk and white board greet children and parents. One slow evening I made a doodle on the whiteboard. The kids were so thrilled. Now they ask me for a new doodle every week. It’s so cute, and of course I’m delighted to oblige!
Well it has been awhile, and for that I apologize. What with having to take on another job, I just haven’t been feeling super creative. That’s not true… Creativity has been oozing out in various forms… drawing on the whiteboards in the office, baking cakes, gardening, home making, and so on… but the urge is back. I want to paint again, and take pictures too. I just need a little push.
I made this little watercolor of myself Friday afternoon. I had the house to myself and the day was so warm and beautiful… It is not often that I portray myself like this, wandering in thought and fingers in mouth, but it is the typical Amber for those that know me.
