Heaven and Earth








‘Aim at heaven and you will get the earth thrown in. Aim at the earth and you could get neither.’ C. S. Lewis

Aiming to find pretty scenes and interesting skies each week for Sky Watch Friday
sure is good fun, you never know what you might find. Check the link to see 100s of other views of the sky from all over the world.












Murasaki is part of a travel themed altered book I am working on.

And exciting news about the All About Paper event on May 17 a day full of fun with pretty printed papers on cards, invitations, and altered items. Can’t wait now to share the fun.


Thank you for everyone who wrote to ask about the paper placemats. On this occasion I went a little tone on tone, but you can find these pretty printed papers in all kinds of colour schemes and every theme you can imagine for as little as 50 cents each at a local scrapbook store.

What beautiful photos of sky. It is one of my favorite things to photograph. I also love the pics of your moving -- the dog house and dog are so cute! Hope you are enjoying your new digs.

Pearl: What a neat photo down the fence line. I don't ever think I've seen such an uneven fence before. Farmers always seem to keep the poles a certain length.

Beautiful photographs! I love the idea of using scrapbook paper for placemats, I never would have thought of that.
