I played with paints.. Pelikan..the first.. and WN the second.
I took a photo Noah's mommy took of him..
I didn't like the first..the water looks like it's moving..some colors ran into each other..
Many things are off ..so I started again.. but then Noah didn't look like Noah..from the picture..
#1..is Noah..# 2 is not..
Guess I will try a third time..
Thing is they look far worse photographed..so I think I should always photo what I do and learn from there..
I do wonder too if the very little amount of time I take to paint has anything to do with my errors..
It goes so fast..I don't know why..
I am going to try and do it again to see:)
If anything gets better~
I love scones..all kinds..I have many recipes Pinned and printed and made and made..and clipped to try..
I went the easy way and made one I know almost by heart.
Truthfully these blackebrries are too big for our yogurts..and that's why they became blackberry scones instead of cranberry orange scones..
So it's basically the recipe I appreciatively got from Katrina...that came from her blog here..and I simply subbed the blackberries in lieu of the crans....it worked..but it is difficult to incorporate the blackeberries without making a purple dough..so these were added gently at the very end..very good..
I enjoy warming them up even the next day with a cup of tea~
I have my fave teas..David's Teas..Harney and Sons..and Tea Forte~
This new little teapot/filter for 1 system..I ♥ it. Happy Valentine's to me.
It fits over any regular sized mug.. and lets the tea seep out as soon as you sit the pot on the cup..
I also love our very plain loose leaf green tea we drink every morning....and chamomiles..and rose teas..etc..etc..
But there's something about pretty teas that get to me:) It's a moment..
Some nesting days are idyllic for xcountry skiing and snowshoeing..this was one of those days..
Although I love the feeling of snowshoeing in the woods..there is something so crisp and fresh and pure about snowshoeing on the golf course..It's wide open.. no one is within miles of you..pretty views.. dazzling sun..white snow.
Every time I go..I think it's a miracle this view...this sky...this snow..this earth~
Slowly but surely...:)
Bon Weekend..I took some photos of some of the cookie making stamps things I use..maybe they will be helpful..I'll post next week if anyone wants to peek..
