Accountability is key in my opinion. It keeps me creating. It keeps my energy up. It makes me work when I am not 'feeling it', when I am tired and drained from life, from the kid's endless energy.
I crave arty friends. They are gold to me.
I am in a little photography threesome with Shannon Mucha and Anita Michelsen. Our group is called Tribloom. The goal of Tribloom is to produce 3 collaborative photo pieces a month. Each piece is illustrating that week's quote or poem (picked by us).
For example, this week's piece is a quote by Lewis Carroll:
“Child of the pure, unclouded brow And dreaming eyes of wonder! Though time be fleet and I and thou Are half a life asunder, Thy loving smile will surely hail The love-gift of a fairy tale."
How lovely is that?
Well, it was my turn to put our photos together and I can't decide which one I like better. Will you weigh in?
Shannon Mucha - Top; Shona Cole - Bottom left; Anita Michelsen - Bottom right

Which do you prefer, which do you think illustrates the quote the best? version 1 or 2?
When it is all done we plan to make a Blurb book with our art work to enter into our church's Fall art festival. It will be lovely to see it all together in book form!
So, Sew Mama Sew is over! It was short and sweet this time around. I got a lot of comments on Monday, but wow did it drop off the last few days. I wonder why? I wonder did others notice that? I also noticed that the the category of 'Sewing + Knitting Supplies/Materials' got much more entries than 'handcrafted' things alone, especially when it came to giveaways of those funky Amy Butler type fabrics. Interesting!
I entered a few contests myself, but not as many as last time, I had a busy week. I doubt I will win anything as it is all the law of averages. But is really was fun visiting new blogs and gaining a few new readers here, thank you very much for signing up and taking the time to leave such sweet comments!
So the winner of my apron and wall hanging is:
TAMMIEMARIE of Crafty Tammie
I will talk to you over email and get it in the mail to you soon!
I will leave you with this video I did of my son juggling last night.
He is 9 and taught himself to juggle!
Check in tomorrow to see if you win my regular Saturday Giveaway! (and I have a fun post about something I made this week, something fun for kids)
Let me know which version of the Tribloom photo you prefer!
