Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Just peeking in...

Not much new going on. I'm continuing my relaxing weekend. I started watching my son's church service in Texas this morning, but it looks like they're rerunning a previous service. The reason, I think, is that some of the church property was hit by a tornado either yesterday or day before. They have a large food bank building, which seems to be okay, but their clothes distribution building did get hit and several homes around it may have also been hit. I imagine they're out taking care of things. Nobody was hurt as far as I know. (Update: They must have just been reshowing part of their testimonies about their trip to India. They're back to the regular service now. Of course, I texted Jordan and he reassured me. ;)

I'm working on a swap called Things in Bottles or Jars (that's not the exact title, but something like that) and this is my first attempt. This card isn't quite finished. It's kind of a bizarre theme idea, but I love old bottles and jars, so it sounded like something that would be fun to try.

Later I'm hoping to get around to doing something more in my Sketchbook Project book. The difficult part is having too many ideas and wondering where to begin!
Today is daughter Micah and son-in-law Adam's 6th anniversary! This is a photo Micah posted on Facebook. The black and white photo is Adam at age 17 and the other is both of them at age 23.  They're doing a great job of being parents to their three little girls, and they really dig each other after "all these years"! :) Proud of 'em!
Have a great weekend!


  1. I like your owl in a bottle. How'd he get in there? Your kids sound like wonderful human beings. God bless you.

  2. I'm glad you're having a relaxing weekend. Also, I like your owl in a bottle. He's cute in an owlish kind of way.

  3. Hi Lisa! I love the owl in the bottle, too! I'm so happy that you were able to put your feet up a bit. Now, get drawing and coloring! You're so good and your work is so happy and cheerful. Just draw.

  4. It must be lovely to watch your children in happy marriages -- I'm not there yet (almost!), but how rewarding and comforting that must be! Congrats to them.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
