Take A Word Challenge - Leisure

This was the first thing that came to my mind. I worked in a men's clothing store when leisure suits were in style.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

I am creating digital artwork for Marney Makridakis. She is the author of the book Creating Time - Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life. Marney is also the founder of Artella. She asked members of four different groups she mentors to pick a flower they feel best represents them. She then asked me to create four different gardens so she could give them to the members of the groups. Since I love all flowers, it was a fun project! A lot of work, but fun. :-)


I sure hope I can get some flowers planted this year!

Do You Have A Book Inside Of You?

My friend Marney from Artella has a new program I think looks very interesting. Of course, I like to write. :-)

Marney says, "For all your aspiring authors out there: it’s time to take action! Here’s a new video from Marc Allen and myself to get you started...take a look!"
