Delicious Doodling- Powerballs

Hi all!

Just popping in to share my post this month for Oh My! Handmade Goodness. The theme over there is “Summer Camp”, and I just happen to be helping out with summer camp at my son’s former preschool.

FL Motel Signs Update

FLMotelsigns_10-18

Just wanted to share more of my FL motel signs photos from Instagram. I know not everyone is on there, plus I like creating this photo grids of the signs to get a feel for them as a group.

For a while I was taking photos around town, away from the coast, but I found myself venturing into some shady parts of town and motels that NO ONE was booking for a fun in the sun vacation (hello, Gateway to Hell Motel). So I headed back out to the coastal areas for more Florida vacation, beach inspired motel signs. The series has hit a lull for the moment, mostly because I need to get my butt back out to the beach, but recent events have severely cut into my summer fun (more on that later).

Hope your summer is off to a great start!

Creativity Exercise: Fill In the Blobs

Perhaps some folks like having this additional  creativity help, but I feel like it squashes my creativity when the exercise pages are too complete or when I’m given too many instruction. Read more…

Project 300: Update #3

I know, I know, it’s been forever since I shared a Project 300 update, but I really have been keeping up with it, I swear! Granted, it’s not been on a daily basis and I’ve been catching up and filling in missing entries every couple of weeks, but I’m still going and I hope you are, too! Read more…

Well, hi there. Remember me? I used to blog here? Yeah, I sort of disappeared to do some soul searching and creative biz contemplating, and I’ve come to realize my little Three By Sea garden is in need of some major reworking. Read more…
