Painted Snippet

I was cleaning out a draw yesterday and came across a snippet. Snippets for me are little scraps of watercolor paper that I doodle on in watercolors. Sometimes it could be as simple as paint shades spread across or in this case a small Hammy. Occasionally I may send them off to a friend. But I decided to place her back into her hiding place, so the next time I am cleaning out the draw; I have a delightful surprise waiting for me!

Acorns Dropping, The Feel Of Cold floors

Beneath Your Feet Leaves Swirling In The Fall Air


Acorns on stump

Ahhh The Inspiration


Acorns 2 on Stump

They Were Shouting Paint Me,

Paint Me!



It’s the simple things, the glow of candles flickering while the smell of oranges, cloves and cinnamon simmers on the stove fill the home with welcoming warmth. Flannel sheets that make me want to stay in a warm cozy bed just a little longer in the early mornings. But…best of all is sitting around our wood stove listening to the crackle and sizzle of the fire while being curled up on the couch creating happy memories with friends and family?

I wonder what are your memories of fall?

Warmly, Cheri

A Finished Story

Good-Bye Wonderful Summer…


Sorry I have been so out of touch, life seems to happen sometimes! The story is done, but not without many rewrites, yes there were revisions after revisions. There wasn’t a day that the story wasn’t entwined in every activity I did and every thought I had. Then one day I glanced down and realized there was nothing else to be done… it was finished! There is still much work to be done…sketching, painting oh my that is the fun part. All the illustrations!!!

I had the opportunity to visit Cape Cod on business, oh poor me! Only kidding! I couldn’t pack my bag fast enough. It was beautiful and the time I was there the weather was just as nice. I even had time to squeeze in a little sight seeing. Everything was in bloom, there were flowers cascading over the fences, names of past sea captains decorated the front door entrances, rose filled trellises were everywhere and the salt air breeze filled the town with nostalgia of years ago. Everything looked as if it were a picture postcard ready to be sent off.

I spent the last week packing up my beach basket filled with yummy dinners and with chair in tow, I traveled the sandy walk to say good-bye to summer!
