Overflowing Red River

overflowing swamp

The river is actually tucked away behind the farthest tree line, but recent rainfall has raised its waters to cover this park. Below, you can see the railing of a pier usually four to six feet above the water, now submerged.submersed swamp walkway waterlogged flowers

The beautiful scene of flowers fighting to get above the water’s surface was frequent. I was able to check something off of my bucket list: walk on paved road that’s underwater. ❤submerged park

Lists and Clay Embellishments

clouds and raindrops

I’ve been up to my eyeballs in projects! These little clay embellishments are part of a prototype set of thin, lightweight clay shapes I’m making for journaling and scrapbooking–another possible product for my lovely little stationery store. I’ve also been prototyping gift cards, handmade stationery sets and designing more planner inserts. In between, there’s the usual notebooks, mail and art. ❤

lists #1 and #2

I realized I haven’t shared a spread from one of my notebooks in quite a while. I decided to take part in the Listers Gotta List monthly challenge since my brain is soupy and just wants to play around with art supplies. XD Frankly I think some of the lists are a waste of time, such as the high school clothing brands list: fuck, that was so long ago–who fucking cares? But of course some of them are quite fun and some even thought-provoking like the “What I hope to accomplish in 10 years” prompt, which I’m about to tackle right after this post.

The pages allow minimal ghosting, but I’m getting over it. Lots of papers and tape should fix that anyways!

Wisteria So Mysteria

James and I were looking for a fast-growing but beautiful climbing plant to train across the entire fence, and I’m so glad I chose this wisteria. It smells amazing, and it’s making blossoms like crazy! Forgive my silly title. I have a tendency to sing that repeatedly at it when I water it, hohohoho.

Green Anole in the Phlox

I’ve been trying to capture one of these lovely lizards for a while. Generally, they’re too quick and wary to let a phone get too close. This one is a little slow, and since I’ve saved him a couple times from being eaten, he’s probably a bit desensitized to my presence.
