(It’s a poor title. I turned the mic on and didn’t have a title! But it gets the point across.)
A trip down memory lane (yes, another one) prompted by questions asked (and correct answers forgotten) and a book of teddy bear photos. Find your favorite Teddy or stuffed animal… and put it in your journal or sketechbook while you listen!
I posted to the Facebook group about a silly beeping that happened every few minutes as I recorded. I was just too lazy to stop everything and get up and move it out of the room. There are still a few beep fragments in the show that I couldn’t fully remove. But at least you know why!
Mentioned in this show:
- Much Loved
- Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar(by Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild and Brave Enough
- The Year of Magical Thinking (by Joan Didion)
- ICAD (ICAD 2016 starts June 1, but the Facebook group is now open)

P.S. I love to (and get lost doing so) follow links to “other” books at Amazon. Has anyone read this?
A Note About ICAD (A Daisy Yellow Project)
I am planning to talk about ICAD in upcoming shows. The first several weeks of it happen during the time I travel to visit family, but I will be (hopefully) trying to keep up. I snapped a photo of some of my cards the other day, and it was interesting seeing a couple of different years all together. I had different themes or approaches each year, and the work from two of the years was so “bold” that it made me catch my breath. I remembered, in a flash, that I used to do do work like that. I am hoping to feel ready for the start of this year’s project. I always work on the same kind of card, 4×6 size, manila. These cards are thick. They are sturdy. I love the size. Totally worth the order I place once a year to Amazon. Favorite pen this year — no doubt about it, it’s the Lamy Joy. I wish I had a dozen Lamy’s, I think. But the Lamy Joy (with a replacement extra fine nib, but not a black one yet) has proven amazing. I’m using the Lamy cartridges, which may be the key to my love of it. (They are not waterproof.) But I would like to try waterproof inks from Goulet in the near future. I have a Noodlers I really like right now, too. But it seems prone to clogging… and it always leaks all over my hands. We should (and will) talk about pens and ink at some point. What’s your favorite?
