Travel Journal for a Friend

A friend at work went on a trip to Hawaii and asked if I could make her something like the journal I did for that on-line class I took.

I like the way it turned out. It did not take me near as long to make as the originals. I hope to find time to make more to sell at the Queen of Arts show this year. I am not sure if this is the year it will happen or not. Cannot think about it yet.

Pretty Day

I pass by these flowering trees every day on my way to work. I finally found a day to stop and grab a few pictures.
I wish I had had the time to cut some branches somewhere when they were just budding so I could put them in a vase and watch them bloom in my home. I love the way they make me feel. I have almost bought fake ones so many times, but it could never be the same.
By the time I could get to taking these pictures, the petels were starting to thim and the bright green leaf shoots were begining to show.

As the days went on (they are all gone now) I watched as the breeze gently blew all the blossoms away...sigh. Maybe next year I will get some branches to share the magic with my daughter.
