So this great search yesterday for the date stamp and journal was prompted by discovering a new blog by artist Jenny Frith, which I'm not even sure how I found other than blog hopping from blog roll to blog roll and then stop!! Fell head over heels for her sketchbook journal and I so absolutely NEED to do this! Of course, after coming home from our out and about-ness, I realized (lightbulb!) I already had the perfect journal stashed in my nightstand--shazah!! So now I need to go back and get the date stamper (oh heaven have mercy...Sometimes I think Bill should be prescribed Ativan rather than me just to help with putting up with me!! Bless his loving soul....) At least our adventures never end, right? That's what I'll keep telling him anyway...
On a completely unrelated note...just a few quick shots from yesterday as well:
|Brian Rose of the Boston Red Sox talking to the kids at the baseball clinic yesterday--what a super nice guy!|
|My Bugga--what a super cute kid!|
|Beach boys! Fort Phoenix is such a great playground...there's these HUGE rocks to climb on right next to a stretch of sandy sea shell collecting beach...I love it there!|
|Lighthouse....I love lighthouses and plan (so many plans!) to start incorporating them into my artwork, especially the local ones (need some better close ups than this, though...you think??) Still...dreamy and romantic and wonderful...|
|I also love seagulls|
|This seaweed was so pretty swirling in the waves...|
One last note for my mail loving buddies!! Another stop I discovered on my blog bopping yesterday was Lindsay Ostrom's site taking sign ups for National Letter Writing Month (April!) Lindsay is accepting applicants through March 15th, then will assign pen pals to write to all month long, swapping postcards, notes, letters, photos, mail art, what have you...I think we're almost up to sixty participants, all here in the states but hoping for some overseas friends too? If anyone is interested, click on over to Lindsay's blog here and send her a quick email before sign ups are closed! Sounds like it's gonna be a super fun month of mail! And you can ask for more than one pen pal and let her know if you're okay with overseas postage or not...I can't wait--I am a mail addict!! Aside from the bills but the mailman won't keep them (and he seems so nice, otherwise!)
Happy Sunday! Happy New Week!
