~ Getting my WITCHY on ~

Good Monday Morning
Friends & Folk ~

I woke this morning to the sound 
of our air-conditioners and fans and their mechanical whirring in my head...

I want so badly to just fling open the windows, 
let some fresh cool crisp air into this old farmhouse 
~ and enjoy the sounds of Mother Nature while I sleep!

ah yes...soon, soon.

In the meanwhile,
 I headed straight to my desk with 'other' thoughts now in my foggy little brain.
Those thoughts that are never far under the surface of my rippling creativity ~
yes friends, thoughts of Witches.
{ok, pumpkins, black cats, moons, get it.}

I like to look back on my previous works and revisit past creations.
This always helps inspire my work for new ideas,
... ways to change and keep my folk art 'fresh' but familiar
*wink wink*

So, here are a few of my past Witches & Other Friends:
punched & embroidered

snippets in time ~
We shall see where all of these little reminders will lead me....
~ who knows?

Have a happy & Creative Monday my sweet Friends ~
Blessings from the Farm
