Me, the teacher... again.

I belong to a bazillion art/craft/doodle Facebook groups (which I have a devil of a time keeping up with, I might add).  Someone on one of them asked how I did a particular pattern on one of my gift letters I posted previously.  You will see I'm not the most proficient video producer/director/cameraperson but I shot a quick lil vid to show her and anyone else how I did it.  I don't know if it has a name as it's a conglomeration of several different patterns (cadent, yew-dee, well).  I just call it my

Cadent-esque Pattern

I originally got the idea for this from Carole Ohl and her Tangle*a*day Calendar.

In the (gifting & doodling) mood...

Here are some gifts I produced for Christmas '14:

And so it's a new year...

Have you made any resolutions for 2015?  I know the general consensus is: Why make them when we usually don't DO them???

I haven't Reeeeeally made any.  Well, I have promised myself to TRY to do some type of art each and every day. I can probably stick to that one. And as usual I promise myself I'll blog more but if you've been following (heh), you see that doesn't really work out, though I AM going to try again this year... No, REALLY!

And I've created a "Happiness Jar" to hold a note, trinket or other Memory for each day of 2015. I got this idea from Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love (one of my all-time FAVE books) and many other great books!

Here is a glimpse of my 2015 Happiness Jar:

What are your promises for 2015?

Oh, this is SO me...
