Ack! It's been a week!

I have an excuse or something. LOL
No, I really don't. I've just been kind of in a funk. I did do some drawing but I didn't like it enough to even finish it, and then I got ready to start a project and kind of "artist blocked" but I think I'm ok now. 

I also spent time playing with the puppy... because LOOK AT THAT FACE!

Plus it's nice out, and I am a SUCKER for nice weather. See my liliacs? I'm working on a sketch for them... but it's not going as well as I'd like. 

And then I broke out my pens and paper again. 
First, the Diva's challenge this week was to use rain. (I'm seriously sick of rain... so I wasn't thrilled with the idea lol) but it did not seem to invoke the results of a rain dance or anything. Plus I like how it turned out. 
So here is my completed piece for Challenge 168.

Then the Tackle it Tuesday challenge was the letter M.
It did not go the way I planned at all, but it's kinda fun and different.
I used
  • Meo
  • Mak-Rah-Mee
  • Merryweather
  • Mooka

And then some daisies found their way in there all on their own. 

I posted in a few other places that I'm going to be starting a 30 day challenge in June. I really hope you'll consider participating. It should be fun and I'm going to give something away at the end. 
More details on the 31st though! I don't want to give everything away in advance!


  1. Awwww! That face! Beautiful puppy. :) Love the lilacs, too! I enjoy both your tiles. You'd posted on the Tackle it Tuesday post that yours had "taken on a life of its own." Lol! Very lovely. :)

  2. Your Rain tile is very pretty and so is ghe dog!

  3. Love both your tiles - especially the M tile and the surprise flowers! And of course, I love your puppy - give him/her a belly rub for me. I miss lilacs (we used to have them growing at my childhood home).

  4. I really like your Rain tile. Your border is very fun and I like the way you changed Rain. Your shading is wonderful. And your other tile is lovely as well.

  5. Love both of your tiles, particularly the daises!

  6. both and nicely done. I agree with you, I have had enough rain lately, so hopefully all this drawing of Rain will keep it at bay for at least a few days.
