EDM #9 & 10

My desk in this little corner of the room. It's a corner desk and very uninteresting, but It's my own space to get away and see the world.

Don't laugh too loud now. Believe it or not, this is my umpteenth try, and ..... well need I say more? I just can't get the hand right. I've done the circles and squares to get it in proportion, and still can't get it. I'm almost embarrassed to post this, except I was challenged by miss Luci that if she would post hers (which by the way I've yet to see a bad drawing from her) if I posted mine.
OK,OK, you can laugh now, I am.

EDM #8 & 11

So you are asking yourselves, "where are challenge #9 and 10"?
Well I'll tell you where, in my head at the moment. #9 is to draw my hand. HA!
Try as I might, I still can't get that right yet. I will be posting my efforts though, because there will be no cheating here. OH NO, NOT HERE. lol
# 10 is to draw my desk or table with books, I believe it was , ok, I know that's what it was. NO, I'm not avoiding the issue at all. I did do my desk, but I don't like it, so, well I will post it real soon. Honestly.
Sooooo, here is # 8. VOILA, A watch.

And last, but not least #11, his and hers sunglasses. That's all for a few days now as I have a project to complete with Di, Sue, and Sandy, oh , and Luci I hear. hahaha
Edited: I just realised that my glasses had no lenses. OOPS
Have a great day all

EDM #6 &7

Do your favorite thing, or a toy.
Well I've discovered that I don't have a favorite thing really, and if I do I'm not aware of it.
So I had already done this blowup toy to put on a card, so I cheated (sort of) and added this as my#6 challenge.

A jar, easy right? Not!!!! I had more trouble than enough doing thie simple sketch, and I'm still not pleased wit it.

So I did it again, and am still not happy. Go figure. I'm not giveing up just yet though.

May Birthdays

Blogger was acting up yesterday, and I found out the hard way, as I'm sure some of you did. I was getting so frustrated trying to get pics to download to my blog.

Anyway, here are a few cards I did for birthdays comeing up in May.
I don't know about you, but May is like another December for me. I have mother's Day as you all do too, then both of my daughters birthdays are in May as are two of my grandchildren, and two, no make that 3 very good friends.
Now my daughter wants me to make up birthday invitations for her two (that's the two granddaughters I mentioned before) daughters. They are haveing a combined pool party this year, so that should be fun if the weather is warm enough, (fingers crossed for the little ones).

This first card has two pockets which I inserted tags in and I think it would be a good way to do the invites Hummmmm, good thinking on my part.
I got this cute idea from Paula at who very kindly gave the directions on her blog for all to use. So thanks Paula.

This one is still missing something, and once I figure that out I'll repost it. LOL

This cute Wallet & pocket card was posted with direction also. I got it from Amy at and added my twist to it.

This is the inside view. I think it would be great to add giftcards, or put a pic on the cards inside the pockets. So many ways to use this one.

EDM Challenges 3 thru 5

Here it is as promised earlier, here are challenges 3 thru 5.
I still have to do #6 to get caught up from the day I started, so I will try to get that done tonight.
That one should be interesting as it is a well loved object or toy. So I'm off to put on my thinking cap.
Challenge #3

Challenge #4

Challenge #5

I have to say very quickly that I joined a group last week called Every Day Matters. The members have daily sketch challenges, and I decided to start at challenge #1 and work my way - hopefully through all of them.
This is challenge #1
I liked doing this one since I can't wear any of my considerable pairs of shoes. I at least got to go through them all and pick a few of my faves, which was not an easy thing to do.

This is challenge #2
A desk lamp. It's suposed to be a Tifany lamp, but not being really fond of that style I guess I could have picked some better colors, but I drew a complete blank.. Imagine! I guess any thing would do, color wise that is. I might do another one later.
So since I started this last week I do have a few more sketches done, and will download these later today.
Chao for now, and hope you all had a great weekend.

Wednesday's drawings

Well I had a great day on wed., and thought of nothing but sketching, so here are few I did. Alas, I had a little visiter who liked them a bit too much. My granddaughter came for a visit and wanted to draw with me, but she liked mine better so she grabbed them to show her mommy, (so they are a tad wrinkled)before we could stop her. heheheh, good to know I have a little admirer though.
In this one I was trying to get the teeth in the right perspective, since I think I try too hard to concentrate on the eyes and mouth.
AND........ This one, believe it or not is supposed to be a sketch of me. NOT EVEN CLOSE, but I like it none the less. Notice the teeth again? I think I'd better start with inanimate objects from now on and go from there.
Luci HELP!!!!!!!! LOL

Have a great day all

I have been off Line for a bit, and only popped in on Easter Sunday to wish a Happy Easter to some online friends.
I was given an order to stay completely off my feet by my Dr., and since my puter room is a bit of a walk, It's been hard to sneak in here without detection.
I am however feeling a bit better today and I want to play a bit....... SO HERE I AM. HEHEHE!!!
Anyway, while being off I decided to do some sketching.
I am not quite pleased with this one but nor am I totally disappointed.
I sketched with pencil then chalked it, then I decided to use a fine marker and go over the whole thing, which is where I think I went overboard.
I have done a few more sketches, and will post them later as I hear Dan comeing.
Yup, caught in the act................. Sigh..........
Well back to my (butt patrol) as I am so loveingly calling my new restrictions. LOL
I'll try to pop back later. (wink)
