A warm "Hello" to new subscribers... and "Welcome Back" to everyone else!

Hello Fall!

September here has been beautiful, warm and sunny. I have been inspired by the Fall colours and have been painting Autumn leaves and trees in my daily sketchbook. 
Next month is "Inktober"...and I will participate again. My new sketchbook is ready!
5 things that keep me going

1. Calming tea....but I am careful about my caffeine intake. If I have more than 2 cups then I'm more anxious.

2. Quiet mornings...even though I feel compelled to 'get to work', I stay offline and spend time with my sketchbook, pens, and paint for the first half hour of my day.

3. Baking...there is something very comforting about baking and the smells that fill our home. Sure, I've gained a few pounds, but I feel more content.

4. Finn...there are lots of people who are getting dogs during this pandemic. My pup is a great comfort and mood stabilizer. All pets have this calming presence.

5. Going grey...Yes, I have decided to temporarily not do anything with my hair, which is a big relief because I really don't like the upkeep of constantly going to the salon for cuts & colour. 
The annual Creative Scrapbooker Carnival is virtual this year....taking place this weekend as a LIVE event in a private Facebook group! I will be teaching a FREE class and there are TONS of fantastic free classes and demos...come join the FUN!
Here is a description of my FREE Carnival class this weekend and time it will take place:
