I just can't quite get into things...I'm trying to create, but my sister's cat, Chagall is very ill and we're heading to the vet this afternoon to put him to sleep. Another animal leaving us this year...I wish we didn't get so attached to those 4 legged fur balls...but it's not gonna happen in the house. Since I've been in this home (2003) I've lost 5 animals...2 dogs, 3 cats, actually I don't like the word 'lost'...they died, no other way to say it. Life is so short with these little companions...I treasure every moment. I'm now down to 2 cats & Daddy's dog...a home is just not quite right without a lot of little pitter-patters...and meows. Take care of your fellow creatures...they are counting on you.

TUTU one of my cats that died last year.

It is a cold & blustery day here in Portland...almost all the leaves are off the BIG maple tree...
never have I seen so many leaves! But the COLORS of this FALL have been gorgeous! The
reds are so brilliant that they almost hurt your eyes, and the yellows are just plain shocking. COLOR...I LOVE it!
Colors for 2012... Below is PANTONE'S prediction for the coming year...the word for the year is "PRESERVATION" is a reflection of our current economic & social climate. The overall desire to connect with our past.

Here is my entry for PINK SATURDAY & for the word PRESERVATION...
get an old pair of tennies & dye them HOT PINK & then go dance in a pile of leaves!

It's PINK SATURDAY...and I'm back.
Missed you all...think I've finally found my muse.
The last 2 weeks I've been busy designing
a Store Identity package for a client...
from a Logo to packaging.
Fun to get back into that kind of designing...
haven't worked on a logo in years.
The store is coming to downtown BEND, OR
...a hot little village in eastern Oregon.
The name of the shop is..."What Lola wants"...
Check it out around the end of November!
Here is a SNEEK PEEK at the Logo...
