Brrr… Happy to be Cozy Underground

With the frigid January temperatures, I am quite happy to work play underground!

A variety of action happening in The Underground this week; a couple of projects finished (yes!) and, of course, another one started. Have I mentioned I have AADD? If I could stay with one discipline, I might become really good (and bored!)

Remember this garden flag? It was mentioned on the very first post of this blog. It is now ready for the fairy garden. The funky fun tree is from a Stencil Girl stencil, available at Ephemera Paducah.

I completed this prayer flag for a young friend whose mother was recently diagnosed with cancer. It is now hanging in the garden. Earlier this week I helped introduce the Prayer Flag Project to a garden club. A post about prayer flags is coming soon to The Underground blog.

Herbal Turtle has been hanging around the studio for a couple of years, waiting for a make-over. He was a gift from my son and daughter-in-law the first year they were married. That makes him about 23-24 years old, which is not old for a turtle, especially one that can’t cross the path of a moving vehicle. His head was severed during the ice storm of 2009. It was reattached with super-duper glue. I don’t remember which one as the procedure was done a few years back.
This week he received a coat of paint; I think he deserves a little bling, maybe some metallic highlights.  
This semester I am taking a basic drawing class at the Paducah School of Art and Design, so I have spent a fair amount of time at the easel drawing cubes, cylinders, bags and shoes.

I will finish out the week by painting a wall in the studio.  Stay warm, my crafty friends!


  1. i really do wish i could get into big, messy kind of projects.....i can't even bear to get out my sewing machine.

  2. "The Underground" is perfect for "messy", out of sight and can't hurt anything.
