Are you ready for a blanket of snow? When Michael of #ScribblePicnic gave the prompt for blanket this week my thoughts went to cuddling a warm afghan on a cold winter’s night. Then I saw Pooh Bear snuggling up with his blankie. But finally I decided to paint a quick watercolour of a snow blanket.… Continue reading Are you ready for a blanket of snow?
Broadcasting on Radio This week’s prompt for #ScribblePicnic is “radio”. Actually it is too funny that this is today’s prompt. Last week I spent time at a Christian Writers’ Conference in Edmonton, Alberta. It is called Inscribe Writers’ Fellowship. What an amazing time I had! Look for changes coming in the next months. For “radio”… Continue reading Radio – How I broadcast at Hope Stream Radio

You can see the… Continue reading What about Ladybugs?

Tadeo Turtle was… Continue reading Tadeo Turtle enjoys a delicious piece of watermelon
A Fox – Scribble Picnic Another week with not much time to paint. But I did do a sketch of this week’s prompt – a fox.

Letters – Scribble Picnic There are so many stories about letters that I couldn’t decide at first. After mulling this around I decided on the emotional ones.

I keep the ones I have written in and give the rest to… Continue reading I Desperately Love to Read Books
