The Poet's Keepsakes


The Poet’s Keepsakes will be in my store around midnight Monday morning MST. This is a collection I have wanted to do for a long time - it is a portrait kit. In it you will find elegant frames and curious treasures designed for the portrait artist inside every scrapbooker. It will be on sale discounted 20% the first 48 hours. (The Painter’s Faeries will be finished in a few weeks.)

Here btw is the official haiku for The Poet’s Keepsakes:

The poet's keepsakes
will remind her quietly
when it's time to write.

If you are the first to make a comment here with a haiku I will happily send you a coupon for a free kit. (Even if you aren't the first please let me read your haikus.) Hugs, Lorie

Ooook ooook!

The Painter's Faeries is warping and woofing its way into an altogether different place and it is dragging me into some new realms I really like but are taking a while to learn.

I'm still working on it all day every day, except I did backpack into the Seven Devils wilderness area last week for two days. We camped in the trees on the shore of a nameless lake that might have been part of a volcano crater a million years ago. My friend Amy baby-backpacked her little booper Ben in with us. Amy did not pack a tent but when it started looking like a mountain storm was sneaking up on us we decided to build her a cozy mini-cabin using Tim's rubber poncho and a bunch of tree pieces the winds had blown over. There was no blizzard that night but the smaller lakes were iced over that morning. Amy and her husband Nick and baby Ben snuggled through the chilly starry night toasty and warm.



BTW Ooook Ooooook is a quote from one of my favorite fantasy characters (hint: he has red hair.) If you are the first to name him (trick question) I'll send you a coupon for Painter when its done. Hugs.
