2B or not 2B, actually I used a 3B…

Hobbies a plenty it would seem at the moment and I wonder where I get both the energy or the time from.

I heard a saying a while back which goes, ‘If you want something done, ask a busy person’ (hope I haven’t used this saying in another blog lol).   Well, I’m not sure whether that rings true or not but I have noticed the more you do, the more active you become and thus the more you can do – so there must be some truth in it.

By the way, this is not an invitation for you to ask me to do something…. although if you did I am a helpful sort of person…

So back to the reason for this post.  I wanted to share with you some of my sketches, made following a recent inspirational visit to my Aunt and Uncle’s house, where my Uncle had started drawing and painting again.  He had a really good drawing reference book which covered problems encountered when drawing and how to correct them.  I flicked through the pages and as soon as I returned home I ordered myself one of those bad boys.  Inspiration speaks for itself….

Sketchings

My next step will be to experiment with different subject matters and different materials.  Progress will be reported back in due course…  Hope you like my sketches and hope they inspire you to pick up a pencil and have a go at drawing.  Or even just look at things in a different light…

Take a walk on the Riverside (Park)…

It was such a beautiful day and the following photos proved that.

Photos were taken with my iPhone 4.  I was really impressed with the results.

Today was baking….

It’s not often I get the urge to bake but today was one of those ‘of the moment’ moments…

Searching through my cupboards I found a chocolate fudge cake which I have to admit was just out of date.  Amazing really as nothing stays in the cupboards in my house for very long.  Still, I rustled up this little treatable…

I was going to say that no-body was hurt in the making of this cake… but I guess that remains to be seen.  It was very yummy!!!

 

 

A dog called Smudge…

Posted in Daily Jollop with tags , , , , , , , on 20 July 2014 by misselisabethuk

One day a little black Labrador knocked on my door and said “hey missus, have you seen my ball?”, I said “why no I haven’t little one but please come in and rest, have a drink and some food before you continue on your way”.  “Thank you kindly, lady” said the little bubble of energy and the dog bounded into my hallway…

Although it didn’t quite happen like that….. It is a delight to share every day with this little black Smudge of a Labrador.  As cute as a button with a cheeky sense of adventure and a heart full of love (and of course an extremely waggy tail).  Smudge you are the best!!

I have made another instrumental track for your delectation – they seem to be getting shorter (not sure why – less is more maybe?!) but don’t worry I am working on more compositions which will be coming out soon.  Watch this space and my YouTube channel  MissElisabethUK ….

 

 

Why not check out my other posts, some of them are actually quite amusing….

A day at Capstone Park…

Hey all, just wanted to share with you my little trip to Capstone Park today for an Easter Egg hunt.  Although not really an Easter Egg hunt more of a walk around the park, deciphering clues and collecting ‘brass rubbings’ (there’s probably a more official name for this process maybe relief rubbing?!) of animals.

To make this trip a bit more enjoyable I was armed with my Panasonic Lumix camera, ready for an hour or so of point and shoot action.  Here are some of the results from this:

Music is very subjective, not everyone likes everything – for me it’s about the process, creating something new, experimenting, the challenge.

Please check out my latest offering (and, of course, my YouTube channel)…
