Simples and Up for "Lost" Time

This past weekend we moved the henhouse and run to its winter location, on the south side of our little hut in the main vegetable garden. Well, The Boy did most of the moving, but I did help! So now The Ladies are positioned for the coming of winter.

I invested creative time in my studio to get moving on some new mini journals. And some larger ones. And some canvas preparation for some intuitive paint play, too. Not to mention planning and plotting for 2014 workshops in creative expression and holistic herbal wellness.

And today, with the help of a lovely apprentice, thirty-three bottles of simples were prepared for the mini apothecary that will soon be making manifest in my studio at Whiting Mills.

That's what I made today … and then some.

Yup. We got the girls all settled in for their long winter's sleep.

You were busy! Love those journals, but I've found I can't make myself write in pretty little books. I feel like I'm spoiling them.

Oh, Sharkbytes, that's so charming, and apparently not that unusual. My mom was the same way, as is my spouse. Not me, though! :)

So much work but you make it all look awesome and fun. I LOVE your set of art journals! So many! Do you fill them all yourself?

I have no idea how you multi-taskers accomplish all that you do. But I will keep checking on you and taking mental notes. ;)
