Ushering in Spring and New Adventures

Spring is certainly ushering in here where we live. Uh huh From the (somewhat stifling*) warmer and windy days lately to the tiny, green leaves pushing their way up out of the ground, we're seeing the signs everywhere. So, why not doodle some flowers the Lisa Congdon way? Besides the current projects on my studio desk, I'm trying to work in little warm-ups here and there to expand my skill-set and learn new artsy things along the way.

Of course, any day isn't complete without the perfect cup of tea in hand. Most days, my preference is PG Tips. On occasion, we pull out the Yorkshire Gold or Scottish Blend. Usually, those blends are saved for winter days or cooler, rainy days throughout the Spring and Summer.

There are many new projects and upcoming changes both myself and the mister are looking forward to sharing with you. One of them is resurrecting our joint blog, Paper Chains & Bunting, about our life and journey along the way. Won't you come 'follow' us? We'd love to have you visit and share our adventures!

  4. Love the vivid beautiful colors. I like the ice tea blend of Darjeeling and Ceylon whole leaf tea that Upton concocts. I drink it iced or hot but I don't do the sun tea method as they suggest.

  10. I just love your flower doodles! I love all of your doodles! lol! They put a smile on my face when I really need it at times, and for that I say, Thank you! I do agree with your hubby though. I also am not a fan of the warmer weather. Could it be because I live in southern Arizona? lol! Have a nice week end!

  12. Your flower doodles make me want spring to come even sooner. Gorgeous colourful blooms.
    I personally don't like it too hot especially after living in the Middle East, but I would like it a little warmer in Bonnie Scotland.
    Today we have a little flurry of snow once again.
    Have a wonderful creative week ahead Alexandra
