Musings From the Beach

What do chic chix do when they are handed lemons? They make lemonade and then get to work creating something!
I have just been given a great opportunity to concentrate on my creative endeavors full time. My mind is on overload with the possibilities. Stay tuned for the next chapter of my life.
Cheers,

Name That Cloud Game

Update To This Post on April 26....Well, I guess that was a big flop...I will however caption the photos with what I saw....


An Elephant


Remember those lazy, crazy, hazy dayz of Summer oh, so long ago?
Well, I do! And this week we're having unusually warm weather here in Paris, France and surrounding 'burbs. Reminds me of my childhood in So. California, lying in the grass and watching the clouds float by, identifying different animals, shapes, creatures and whatever popped into my mind.
I took a break from my garden clean-up yesterday afternoon, plopped down in my chair, and lo-and-behold, up there in the azure sky were some white puffy marshmallows!
Well, it WAS "gouter" time, as we say over here. Pass the graham crackers & Hershey bar, please. Actually we don't have those in my neck of the woods, so we substitute Lu's Petit Ecoliers, or "little schoolboys" to Peg & I. (inside joke)
Ok, back to the subject matter.

A Dragon



This was a Seahorse, got blown away before I could photo it.

So here are a few that I was able to snap up, I wonder if you see what I did? Rich, are you reading this??? Peggy's bro-in-law is/was an avid cloud-watcher, so I'd like to challenge him and anybody else who may be reading this great blog to a Name That Cloud game. Sorry, no prize, just good old fashioned FUN and your chance to participate in a little dreaming exercise. Just leave your comment below.
I will update in about a week and share what I saw in these puffy wonders!
Check back then to see if what's going on in your imagination is as scary ... uhh, I mean, as sophisticated as mine!
Have Fun and I hope there will be some partakers, we need followers.
Alysen.

Musings from the train

Good morning!
The best thing about having to get up at 4:30 AM is getting to see the sunrise.
I keep thinking I need to bring my big camera with me on the train. There are some very interesting sites. I do like taking photos of the things that most folks don't see or notice.
Jumbo and I got some interesting jewelry made this weekend. I am looking forward to feedback from folks.
Will sign off for now as I feel the need for a quick nap before we hit Tustin.
Ciao for now and be well,
P

Musings from the train

Happy April Fool's Day!!
It has been a while since I have been on the train. How I missed getting up at 4:30AM.
I have been madly working on jewelry for Soulful Connections (check them out on Etsy or at www.thesoulfulconnections.com). This has put my work for Chic Chix a bit behind. Stay tuned as I plan on posting a couple of items this weekend. Although, the garden may be calling me.....
I have decided to tone the garden down a bit. I planted way too much last year and it got a bit out of control.
I will end my musing as I feel a nap coming on.
Cheers and have a great weekend,
Peggy
