Catching up on Every Day in May/EDM challenges


So busy with work that I haven't had time to keep up with the challenges. A cold foggy Sunday gave me a chance to catch up...sort of...

EDM # 121—a coin.
My beautiful gold Chinese coin necklace is a wonderful reminder of my time in Bali. These are the coins they use in Balinese offerings—except not in gold.

EDM #116 something green & EDM # 120 a flashlight

EDM #118 some hair
This a sweet rescue dog named Rudy belongs to one of my mom's "dog park" friends. I would have taken him in a second, but his new family isn't giving him up. Just what I need, another dog...

EDM #117 something round
This pin cushion has been with me forever.

EDM #115 a basket.
An L.L.Bean pack basket used to carry the groceries up the six flights to our place in Portland. It weighs a ton when it's empty, so it is easier to use recycled shopping bags.

They are all great pages! Who needs another dog? That doesn't stop the wanting of more though. Love your pincushion.

Excellent sketches! I especially like the coin - and the pin cushion! Re the pin cushion, just shows anything can be art. It is the most exciting, vibrant colorful pin cushion I have ever seen!
