[Why Nuts?] A look into the unique creative art of blogger I-Shan Lin…

“I’ve got all I need. Me, a paper boat and lots of nuts. So there’s nothing to be afraid of.”  The other day I was having daydreams in my huge beanbag. I thought it would be really funny if there’s a paper boat carrying loads of nuts and a happy, chubby and greedy squirrel. By the way I have a pet hamster myself and am… Continue reading [Why Nuts?] A look into the unique creative art of blogger I-Shan Lin…

Tile Art

Here are some pictures that just tugged at me to create while walking through my entry.  They are twelve-inch natural stone tiles.   I never noticed the (featured photo) before, but once the face popped out at me…at least three faces in fact…I knew they were perfect for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo challenge.     The eye just seems to adjust for the scene. These shots remind me … Continue reading Tile Art

Ode to a yellow roof, L’Eco

I like to try out new forms of poetry.  A few months ago there was a post by Georgia Bastet, describing a poetic form that she had invented.  Called L’Eco.   There are four stanzas, with a 3-5-4-6-6-3 word count (words, not syllables)… the first and last line in each stanza are the same, plus there is a summary statement in brackets.  The poem was based … Continue reading Ode to a yellow roof, L’Eco

Beaded Necklace

Beading is strictly a hobby with me.  More of a dabbler than a true artist, my interests involve various handcrafts such as crocheting (not knitting,) and assorted … Continue reading Beaded Necklace
