after i finished my san miguel de allende blurb book, i decided to make a budapest blurb. and then a san cristobal blurb. i’m trying to go back and catch up on past trips… it sure is nice to have a hard copy of past travels. makes a nice companion to a travel journal.
the idea was to get caught up with past books before starting my sweden blurb. but i’m pretty sure my enthusiasm for the process will wane soon, so sweden might have to wait for a bit.
don’t be impressed with the 3 i’ve cranked out. i use the automatic feature to place the photos on their respective pages by date. zip zang zap (!) it’s fast and then it takes about an hour to go rearrange/delete some of them. i don’t add text either. if i need a blah blah blah fix i have the travel journal for that.
i’m practicing drawing & painting bougainvillea. i expect to encounter a lot in guatemala and i must be prepared! i find it one of the more difficult plants to capture. i think it works better when i paint it without drawing first. further study is needed.
lisa sent me some stickers she made of some of her watercolor sketches.
come on! i think they’re terribly clever. she’s using them on mailart.
since she sent me my very own set i think i will follow suit and find some unsuspecting person to surprise.
this is what the sky has been doing lately in the city of angels.
i watch it change while i sit out on my porch in the evenings.
it’s been positively sultry here ever since i mentioned the divine coolness we were having. see how that works?
and last in my string of unrelated topics & tangents…
that’s all she wrote!
