T Stands for Tuesday

Once again I am sliding in at the last moment to get this posted.  It seems no matter how hard I try Mondays run away from me at warp speed most weeks. 
My phrase  for the year is 
"Be More" .
Yesterday was one of those days that grabbed a hold of that phrase and ran with it from the moment I woke up until I finely collapsed at midnight. That is the body did but the brain kept going until about 3am :( 
Even though I didn't get some of the things on my daily to do list done ...I did get so much more than I thought possible done so it was a good day. 
Before I forget here is the required drink of the day... coffee of course and two of the birthday cards I painted yesterday.
Over the weekend I spent a lot of time on the internet and TV watching the progress of the marches across the nation and other parts of the world. I was impressed with the numbers and the fact that for the most part they were peaceful and well organized.  
On Sunday I did a page in one of my journals that was kind of sparked by those events but more just by the whole election and who our president is . 
 Since taking this photo I have added many more descriptive words... not positive. 
Then I felt  like I needed a more positive page so I did this 
Rainbow Warrior Dream Catcher page... 
...which then inspired one of the birthday cards from yesterday. 
I also started drawing out my garden plan for this spring... :) 
Those seeds are calling my name this week ♥
I finished up a new crochet project too and will be shipping it off today..
It's a vest and I certainly hope they like it as much as I do.

  5. boy have you been busy Carol! Super projects. I really love your cards especially. Now get some rest:) Happy T day!

  6. This was a super post to read, you have been so busy with your wonderful art and croquet work. The Dreamcatcher looks fantastic.
    Happy T day.

  7. Wonderful post, I think your creativity is in overdrive with all the beautiful art work you have created! As your picture says you must be a Rainbow Warrior - the colours and design of your dream catcher are just stunning! Thanks for making me smile and wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  8. Well, you got your post in before I did, so.... ;)

    "Our bodies, our business, our rights." Yes! Who thought back in the 70s we'd still be fighting for our rights now :)

    Happy T Tuesday

  9. This was a very uplifting post, Carol. I know I'm late,but I was out most of the day. You had me fooled. I didn't think that was Trump initially.

    What are you putting in your straw bales? I see tomatoes on the other page, but I was just wondering. I'm trying to build up my lasagna garden, but it's very slow going. I would love to get some straw, but it's too expensive here. Last time I looked, they were $15.00 per bale from a local farmer.

    I love your cards. I'm sure they will make two people very happy. That dream catcher is awesome.

    Thanks for sharing your coffee, art, and random thoughts with us for T this Tuesday. I agree with Divers and Sundry, but I don't go back quite THAT far.

  10. I loved all your art, but I must say, I don't think I could even do a page with our new president on it. Kudos to you for being brave enough to do that-and adding all those bad words. My page would be full of those bad words. Glad you made it to T,late or early...hugs-Erika

  11. wow, your birthday cards are beautiful and the medicine piece feels powerful to me.

    I agree, the marches were beautiful, strong and well organized and peaceful, so impressive.

    Oh it can be so hard being awake after we want to be asleep.

    I really like the colors in your crocheted piece.

  12. I don't have many positive descriptive words for our new president. I love the dreamcatcher! I spend most nights awake with my brain in overdrive!

  13. Beautiful cards. Glad you made the most of your day. Some days are easier to do that with than others. Totally know what you mean about Mondays slipping away...mine always seem to!
    Happy T day!

  14. Wow - you have been busy, Carol! Your painted cards are beautiful. What do people say when they receieve an original work of art? It would floor me. I like the MLK quote. I always enjoy your random quotes. Good food for thought ;-)

    Happy T Day!

  15. You and your creativity are inspiring dear Carol.
    I have been in such a funk especially since inauguration day.
