Over the past week I have been gearing up my zazzle store with items for mother’s day.  This variation of this design,  originally intended for use on custom envelopes to match some custom stationery I created, looks great on many Mother’s day gifts, with the slogan “Best Mum EVER!” (and would work equally well as gifts for mothering sunday)

These coasters say you love mom in word and deed (since once she has them,  you’ll be sure to not leave water rings on her furniture 😉 )

These necklaces for mom are also available as round pendants.

these great mother’s day shirts also have cute matching “I’ve got THE Best Mum EVER!” shirts for baby (and older kids too).

This is a bit off the beaten path for me, but I thought it made a cute dog sweater for a mommy dog.

In my new endeavor, combining my artwork with the haiku poetry of Glennis Roper, Glennis has shared some really phenomenal poetry with me. She has a great sense of whit, and a knack for striking at the heart of the subject.

I love this one about how expensive postage has become:

Postage keeps rising!

Pony Express was cheaper!

Good thing planes fly fast.

When I was talking to her earlier this week she said that what prompted her to write this was that although many things have not increased much in price percentage-wise over the years, she remembers a time when it cost as little as 3 cents to mail a letter. That was a little before my time, but I do recall the time when 1st class mail was only 22 cents. Now it is double that, despite a things like a gallon of milk staying in the same approximate $2/gal range over the same approximate 20 year period.

This haiku about postal rate increases by Glennis Roper is illustrated in a style reminiscent of a political cartoon. A little girl turns her piggy bank upside down and shakes it, peering inside for spare change next to a mailbox labeled with a dollar sign, while a pony express rider races a modern day jet plane past mountain ranges like a a graph of the ever increasing prices.

I have this poor rhododendron bush at the end of my driveway. It’s a good thing it’s hardy, since I have run over it a few times.  (The driveway is curved slightly, on a hill, and the short bush is in a bit of a blind spot when backing out.–Luckily I was able to solve that problem by planting a much more visible, taller rose bush a littler higher up the hill that I can see in the mirrors).

Last spring the sun came out after a good spring rain, and I was able to get these lovely photographs. I love how the raindrops make these flowers sparkle in the sunlight.

On the last evening before the beginning of the school year I took the kids to the local park down by the Columbia River for one last evening of carefree fun and frolicking. We stayed so late we were there to enjoy the sunset, and the sky was lit up a pretty shade of pink behind the Lewis and Clark Bridge. As I walked closer to the river to get some good pictures of the sunset, I noticed these little clumps of either light pink or white wildflowers growing in the sand near the banks. It was difficult to get a good  picture of them in the twilight, but these two turned out pretty well.
