Sleepy Sundays: Scales

Scales

Burnt Lilac Sunset

Each week of our life lately has seemed like a series of tests. It’s been happening to everyone in my family.

In my designs, I’ve been working on different palette scales for backgrounds, for later projects.
Synchronicity is a strange & beautiful thing.


Have a pleasant Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: Enchanted Patch

The seasons are changing rapidly around here but somehow this weekend winter managed to hang on. Despite the cold temps these surreal scenes of the entrance of spring managed to creep into my dreams and designs. Spring is very close around here, and you can tell by the trees. You are starting to see little bits of green pop up here and there. Soon even the cold will not be able to stop it. Everything will come into bloom. I’ve always liked the change of seasons around here for that reason, and the beginning of March around here usually signals spring. —Usually.

Have an enchanted Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: Dense

There is so much to tell you it definitely won’t all fit within the limitations of the “short but sweet” design of a SleepySundays post. Such rambling is better suited for a Daydreams Diary—so we plan on squeezing one of those in sometime soon.

While I juggle my folders with life, we’re busy planning for the upcoming 31Nightmares in October. I had to make a few business-related calls this weekend and while pulling some strings with friends, our October event somehow came up. One of my friends was exchanging some ideas with me and I stepped outside to notice a dense fog while we chatted. The subject of the paranormal came up and I’ve got to admit I got a little chill (a good chill) even though it was very hot & humid outside. All of that inspired this wall art design. Someone has already requested it for their living room. My resources are dwindling due to a few recent setbacks, but are slowly on the mend so I’m going to do my best to make that happen.

When was the last time you got caught in a dense fog? (Literal or figurative)

Have a creepy Sunday! 😀

Sleepy Sundays: Brighter Day

A lot has changed in the past few months. Even more is still changing. We are no longer moving our place of residence and this office. (At least not any time in the near future.) A great deal has gone on behind the scenes.

One thing remains constant. My health is still considerably poor. We are doing our best to fix this. Although, I’m not too sure what’s in the cards for me.

We decided to renew CardCastles for another year anyway. Somehow, I still have this strange optimism despite having tea with the reaper lately. There’s so much more to tell you, but we’re going to have to save that for a Daydreams Diary. For now, let’s all just try to look towards brighter days together.

What gives you hope?

Have a peaceful Sunday

Sleepy Sundays: Spaces

There’s been a lot going on in the world of Snapping Turtle recently involving a possible move that is no longer happening. We are trying to remain open anyway due to the changes. We apologize for any rescheduling inconveniences. To hopefully somehow make up for our crazy personal lives there are again two designs being shared this weekend instead of just one.

You’ll have to stay tuned for their stories as we transition into new horizons.

A lot is changing here at CardCastles and in our lives and we are thankful some of you have continued with us and myself during this journey.

Have a peaceful Sunday
