Another week gone! Wow-its Friday and I always like Friday!! I think its left over from all those years of having my nose to the grindstone and Friday brought welcome relief! This week it serves that purpose well as Ive been keeping my nose to the grind getting the pen website upgraded with a new color scheme, a new navigation menu, new tables to show the pens, and updating the wood selections pages!! I'm now waiting for some content info from my B-I-L and once that is done the fall update will be done!

Just in time for Wednesday Im headed back upstate to get the scoop on another project my Sis has for me at her work! They have hired me as temp to assemble 620 storyboards for the new fabric lines!! ITS a lot of work and she said it will probably be approx 130 hrs job. So Wed & Thurs I will up there and then back home to complete the project at home! I will be scarce around the blog when I return--Im sure as usual they will want it done like yesterday! I will try to take a few photos when I get cranked up so you can see exactly what Im talking

Meanwhile today I took a pretty big load of "stuff" to the flea market! I helped mom update her closet we added another shelf and she had a lot of stuff to get rid of, I raided my closet for stuff I dont want--and added in lots of other things we had laid aside for the purpose- I dont know bout you guys but I love to get clutter out of my life and out of my space--it clears up the mind and allows new ideas and stuff to enter your life!..So today I did it... loaded up my Blazer yesterday got up at 5 am and off to the flea market. I had a good sale and took what didnt sell to the Salvation Army store in town.... it got hot--and I got a wee sunburn on my face--

In the west the thistles were so inspiring--I included one in one of my latest drawings--I like it!

Hope all of you have a great weekend.


  1. Sounds like you've got a busy time ahead Dixxe.
    I've got a spare bedroom full of 'stuff' to get rid of; one day lol
    I like your thistle drawing too. Something I can't do, draw :(

    Thank you for your very kind words, and thoughts, on my last post. Appreciated.

  2. As Keith says it looks like you are going to be busy!

    I could do with you here, I have so much stuff that needs clearing out and painting and decorating that needs doing but just can't find the motivation :(

    Your illustration is beautiful, so delicate and the colours are very pretty.

  3. I really like the thistle drawing. Hope you've had a good weekend.
