    I went back to play with Cassel’s vases again. Was trying to get a two-toned swirl vase (sort of like one I own). In bigger form it looked great, but small, not so much. They are great fun to play with and fill.

    Been playing with Cassel’s class … and learned a few things so far, but it was late and my mind was turning to mush.¬† Will have to try again¬† when I am a wee bit more vibrant!¬† I guess the only good thing we can say about this “hunkering down” – is we have plenty of time to learn stuff.¬† I made some oddball shapes … managed to even change the lines … but didn’t have the script tool to add tubes.¬† Found it this morning on her site … YEA!¬† Will go back and try again later.¬† ¬†Had lots of fun with it anyway.¬† Made one of Henri, one of three kits I helped Mama raise the first summer they were born.¬† I named them and fed them and they even knew their names.¬† They followed me around like puppies.¬† But I know not to trust them ever again after the first snowfall.¬† He still knew his name though … because look at that stare when I called out to him, he stopped in his tracks and looked right at me.¬† He also ran up to the deck to get a customary treat, which I gave him without going near.¬† I was pleased to see he was as leery as me … but he still¬† kind of met me half way.¬† Well, that’s as far as I got before my eyes were too bleary to work right.¬† My pillow was calling!

    Lovely play around Trish. Did the colour washout happen when you downsized? I have had a similar problem with psp 2020 and have been waiting for it to happen again so that I can let Cassel know the steps that led to the washed out result. It only happens when I downsize but as I said previously it has not happened for a little while. <3

    Thank you, Annie. You always say the most encouraging things and I sure appreciate it. Henri was one of triplets, he had a sister and a brother. Their mother (which I helped raise, too) made her den six feet off the end of my deck. I know she did this on purpose as she knew I would help her. She only had three working legs. I set up little feeding stations on my deck for them along with everything else I fed. One night I had 29 raccoons, a deer, two gray fox and a skunk all eating peaceably on my deck. The skunk was the only ornery one and I would open the kitchen window and holler at her to settle down and she did. You could never tell me they didn’t know they had a good thing going on. Even the skunk brought her young by one day – full sun – and lined them up on the top stair and made noises for me to come look. I did … and then she marched them away single file. Was one of the cutest things I’ll ever remember.

    Hi Trish. I am doing fine for now my friend. The copd plays up a bit especially in the morning and early evening … that is the norm for me now. Our supermarkets had stopped the click and collect a couple of weeks ago which was the main way that I shopped but I think the Aussie Government has convinced them to bring it back online for the vulnerable. The last time I was in the supermarket there was very little in the meat isle and the toilet paper, tissue and hand sanitizer shelves were empty. My daughter and I have agreed to shop on a “as need” basis seeing as the supermarkets are remaining open. Huge job losses here in Australia so the recession has set in big time. I remember when my parents and grandparents talked about the great depression and I never thought that I would see similar. I do grow a few herbs but I think I will grow a few veggies as well … one never knows! Australia has closed their state borders so no travel interstate and borders will be policed strictly. Fines of up to $15,000 may apply and with the dollar value dropping I don’t think people will be too keen to push the button. Sorry to hear that you have no food! Are you able to access any other form of help? No matter what restriction or help is offered there are always those who slip through the loop and you may be one of them Trish … you need to holler loud and clear! Take good care my friend. At least here on the campus we can talk about our woes. Much love. <3

    Minka, you are most welcome. I love how you have blended in with the animal community. I have always found that if you are accepted by the wildlife then you feel more ‘at home’ … a sense of really belonging. The wildlife instinctively know who they can trust especially among us human beings. You should feel very proud … well done Hon.

    Hi y’all. The photo switch challenge is fun … have you tried it yet? Minka is waiting for someone else to join so that she can be paired. Beware, this challenge makes you think extra creatively because you are doing a page for someone else. I am really thrilled with the page Sue created for my photo, pop in to see. It is great fun … come on in and have a play!!!

    Many of you will have seen¬† what I’ve just posted.¬† As I tend to post on the¬† facebook¬† page.¬† These are a few of the projects that I’ve¬† created in the last¬† short while.¬† If there is anything¬† that¬† you’d like to know¬† how I achieved some techniques, please don’t hesitate to ask.¬† I’ve posted¬† these here, for those that are no on facebook.¬† All photos are my own.¬† JJ is no longer the little kit I photographed last¬† summer.¬† He’s now an adult wild native Nuttall’s rabbit.¬† I have no idea what sex he is, hense the name JJ, which is short for Jack/Jill.

    I don’t know if any of you subscribe to BaBa Mail … but today’s issue had one of the most heartwarming stories with pictures of folks at different places in the world experiencing first hand social distancing. It was soooo moving I found I had a couple of tears in my eyes. Grandparents looking through a window to see their first grandchild for the first time, a couple obviously missing each other as they both work in the line of fire in differing ways… a married couple who she is in a nursing home on lockdown so he is outside her window. I mean really … there isn’t anyone in the world that could have looked at those shots and not felt something in their heart. I saved them … and because I have so few photos here, that is what I played with today following Cassel’s free class. I’m going to share just a few … hope you don’t mind.

    Touching hands through the glass and talking on the phone. Somehow, it’s probably not enough, but it’s something.

    It brings home that this is not just a problem that concerns su locally … it’s everywhere and we have to work hard to win. This couple was married for a jillion (yes, a jillion) years … but he can’t be with her. That’s not a staged act … that’s love. Social distancing isn’t stopping them.

    Okay … that’s all the waterworks I’ll share. But I did work on one of my photos, too. Portland Headlight is across the bay from my house. So naturally, I have a lot of pictures of that. I tried Cassel’s watercolor tricks on it. Looked pretty good.

    Just posted these on FB…

    Sunrise photo taken and shared by a friend…New Year’s Day.

    Betty made her list of wishes for her 89th birthday and 3 of us fulfilled her list. Beautiful day.

    Pickleball serves…begins the game. Everyone has a serve slightly different. Since I can’t play pickleball right now I’ll scrap it.

    Michele, I can’t say¬† how much I miss your posts, I wish you well, stay safe and be careful my friend.¬† it’s always a pleasure to scroll through¬† the posts.¬† There is so much talent, and creativity in the¬† projects.¬† They are a great source of inspiration. ¬† Such a beautiful sunrise this morning. JJ and I enjoying the warmth. I sat with him for a while, with a cuppa and the camera, at a distance mind. As he won’t let me get to close. It’s called social distancing. The frame is Cassel’s edge punch. I love these punches.
