As I continue to wrap things up in the studio, unplug from the tech tools, put some finishing touches on two new lines, things are beginning to feel calmer. Yesterday, I even took time to meander around our property a bit, a favorite, especially as fall approaches. Turtles, toadstools, walking sticks, that’s what I’ve been missing! This little guy was trying to get away from me and the camera among my overgrown garden.

Then, just a while ago, I glanced out the studio window and noticed these two young deer chomping on some clover. I’ve spotted them several times lately, very close to the house! Love that. Oops, they heard me.

All summer, I tend to stay indoors since I struggle in the intense heat and humidity. I’m always uplifted and renewed when I can get out and enjoy some of God’s little woodsy creatures.

Chirp, chirp!
