Alcohol Ink Coasters…

I stepped down from my Admin position to go back to being a full time REALTOR (Yes this is in all caps…I pay for the use of the title, swore an oath…and proud to be a REALTOR although I am a little disappointed that there was no secret handshake)

Anyway, I digress…

When I stepped down, I realized that there were so many people that I appreciated while I was Admin, people who have shown me so much kindness while I was working as an employee and support in my transition back.  There was no better time to show my appreciation than the Christmas season.  Granted, the dollar amount isn’t much, but I spent  A LOT of hours on these and was very excited how they all came together.

I was so nervous but these little gifts were well received and everyone loved them and I think sometimes the best gift you and give is your time.

Did you give any handmade gifts this year?

I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year!

Be Well and Happy!

Life is just Beachy!

“Blue Waters”
Copic Various Ink on Yupo

A BIG event happened in the Ottaway household recently… Our daughter graduated college!

I can’t tell you how good it feels to have my little chickie home and how proud we are!

                                                      Look at that happy face ❤️

After graduation was our yearly trip to Hatteras. (Thank you Chris and Vicki!). It was so much fun to get together with the family.

              We spotted this Raccoon carving on a nature walk on Ocracoke Island!

I guess it’s fitting that I am posting “Beach Waters”. I want to do another piece like the one above, but since each piece is unique and has a mind of its own so we will see how close I can get!

What have you been working on lately?
