Winter Fishing !

I had to share these wonderful pics with you. Some of you may know that my husband is an amazing artist. His medium of choice is wood carving. He has created many wonderful pieces in his day. Santa's ,fish and wildlife sculpture including several chainsaw bears that were donated to raise money for Children's hospitals. He also has a deep passion for creating Native American style flutes. He is a lover of all art and has recently been researching and making his first knife. It is very interesting. The other day he told me he was taking a break from work and art to go fishing with our son-in-law. I thought he had lost his marbles because it is down right cold in the great outdoors... I guess I am just a wimp!

He didn't bring home fish for dinner, but he did bring home these gorgeous pictures of the Bear river. You can see the Wasatch Mountains in the background.. You can visit Alan's blog to see some of his very interesting work.

I took a break from art today to DE- Junk! Have you ever seen the show Hoarders? Well, it freaked me out so bad ! My house appears clean, Just beware when you open the cupboards everything may just fall on top of you.. so I spent most of the day cleaning drawers and cupboards.. I feel good now that I'm not a hoarder, and I can move on to my art.

Spring is in the air !

Ahhhh.... I can take a big deep breath and relax... well, maybe just for a minute.
I was just tickled to get my new Easter creations completed, as I kinda lallygagged this month on my creating.. A little here and a little there.. I have about 10 projects started and have just been leisurely enjoying myself until.. I looked up at my calendar one evening and realized that January was here and gone and it was nearly time for the Pfatt Marketplace update..Well once again my hair stood on end, I jumped right out of the computer chair, moved over to the creative seat, isolated myself from the world for a few days and Wall-la! Easter creations will be for sale on February 10Th at the Pfatt Marketplace.
