Phew!

My blog attendance over August has been abysmal, but I see from my blog roll that I'm in good company. We finally saw some summer-esque weather around here in the past few weeks and I've been wringing all the sunshine out of it that I could. This Friday's hike showed signs of fall, even if Saturday's kayaking burned my poor shoulders to buffalo wings. I wish I had photos of the kayak trip, but neither of my cameras nor my phone are waterproof in any way.

Here's my sign of impending autumn, though.

I'm still without Photoshop cd... I believe it eloped with my blue sock and my last working fine line black marker. If you see any of them, please let me know.

Until I break down and start looking for a cheap alternative I have to steal moments here and there on Axel's machine so I haven't too many art shots. Nature photos are a lot quicker to edit, for some reason.


Carved rubber stamps - wild rose and fir cone

I have been arting a fair bit and having huge fun carving my own stamps still. The two pictured were inspired by some of Patti's amazing botanical photography.

I do have more shots, but Blogger is burping on these two as it is. I'll hopefully get some more up later in the week. Probably not, though. ;-)
