Watercolor and TV Escape

When I was a teenager, I always had a crocheting, embroidery or knitting project going. I'd come home from school, turn on a soap and needles would start clicking.  I did get my homework done, but I loved that hour or so to unwind every day with just ATWT or Guiding Light and my thread.  I would watch something beautiful and functional come together in my hands.

Those types of crafts are too hard on my hands these days so I enjoy papercrafts and machine quilting. However, it is hard to do those things and watch TV.   Fortunately, I can occasionally throw stamped images, blender pens, watercolor crayons and other supplies into a basket and camp out in front of a soap on a rainy afternoon like I did yesterday.  Here is one of the cards I assembled this morning with my colored images.  General Hospital never looked so good!

  1. this is so pretty, lisa. I love the softness of the watercolor. I tried it a few times-it take practice-but it looks like you figured it out
