Whee, a Busy Time in The Underground

Wheee, it is a busy time in The Underground! Mostly drawing! My instructor at the PaducahSchool of Art and Design really expects us to draw! Every day! For hours (okay, maybe just one, but I get involved and never stop in one hour). Even so, I stay behind.

This is one of the assignments from a week ago; the instructions were to draw something that would fit in the palm of the hand.

I couldn’t decide on what to draw, so I just went through the house and picked up the first item that would meet the requirement. (I must start putting more thought into my selections.)

Herbal Turtle’s make-over is completed. Now if the weather would cooperate, I would return him to his home in the herb garden.

I saw some push pins made from buttons on Pinterest and thought they would look cute on the studio bulletin board. Really easy to do, just use a strong glue like E-6000 and glue buttons to regular thumb tacks. 

One of my friends moved into a new home this week, so I made a prayer flag and card to send expressing my wishes for a peace, comfort and happiness.

This year I chose focus for my word of the year.  I made this sign to place in the studio to help me stay focused on the project at hand. (You know, the AADD thing.) I will write a post soon to show how I made the sign.

Now I must get to the studio and start painting the base cabinets for the upgrade.

You may ask, if this is a gift than why am I doing the painting? Well, it’s a pretty simple answer, if I help than it will get done quicker. As I paint this afternoon, Handy Randy will work on the design for the stamp storage. (He has a pretty cool idea going, can’t wait to see how it turns out!)


  1. WOW!!! You've been busy!!!! We really need a craft day!

  2. Indeed we must, Steph, in the updated studio!
