Not to everyone's taste

 I've done a few cards and some gel printing experiments that I'd like to share with you!

First, two mother's day cards--both of our moms are still with us (mine is 93, Tim's is 98). 

Second, I found an image for a Tlingit Raven (the tlingit are one of the First Nations people in Western Canada).  We have two pieces of Tlingit art that we attained in Canada when we were there a decade or so ago (more than that actually--we had two entirely different dogs!).  So I did a stencil of the raven and did a few prints.  

I also tried this technique with a stencil of a howling wolf with not great results.


In other news:

-I made a loaf of semolina bread which was NOT GOOD but then a good loaf of orange chocolate chip breakfast bread so there's that

-we're watching "This is a Robbery" on Netflix--a four part series on the robberies at the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum in Boston which is good in a very "Unsolved Mysteries" kind of way

-I couldn't sleep last night, argh.

I made some orange bread this weekend, too. Next time, chocolate chips will go in.

Sorry you're disappointed with the wolves. The ravens are gorgeous.
