    all are so beautiful! 3 on the beach is gorgeous and I think I now need a hot dog with ‘kraut for breakfast! Ali, in the last photo….will I find those digital elements with “love” “always” and “wins” at DD?

    My immediate thought to seeing your canvases was yay!, maybe there’s a new book coming out!
    Looks like a wonderful weekend!

    Beautiful!! I was in Oregon this Summer for vacation and I am in love with the Pacific Coast!! I especially loved Cannon Beach where my autistic son took off running free on that big beautiful beach! It brought tears to my eyes he was SO happy! I can’t wait to come back to your state! :)

    These were amazing and beautiful pictures. Looks like you had a fun and creative weekend. The picture with the pencil shavings on the sidewalk does that mean you did a lot of art outside??? All these years I’ve spent teaching my kids to sharpen over the trash, thanks for reminding me it’s ok to have a mess. The hot dog makes me hungry too, good thing that’s what I planned on for dinner today.

    I love all those textures. On the second picture, what did you use to make the pattern that looks like a honeycomb?

    I wish my other half would understand why I have my camera every time we go out. He gets annoyed and some times even angry. It’s hard to explain to someone the love of taking photos and preserving memories when that other person doesn’t feel the same way.

    I love your blog because posts like this one remind me to rejoice in the everyday – even in the midst of unpacking from a cross country move! There truly is beauty all around us, you just have to take a moment to look for it.

    Loving “all” the comments as that is exactly what I see. Creative, love, inspire, take time to smell the roses. This blog is my “feel good” thing for everyday. Thanks Ali.

    Elise, your comment to Ali… was exactly what I was thinking also. Those words were very much needed today.

    I actually thought the background looked like a sketchbook or something :) Which in that case would come in handy to dump the shavings into the thrash!
