STAPLER EDM CHALLENGE #201

Don't forget to left click on the photo
to see it larger, to read it better
This stapler had not been put back in


the old tool box under the kitchen window...


it sat, silently on the table waiting for it's


portrait to be done. It had been a big help


making the Christmas greens nestle


on the windowsills I look out each


morning with my coffee.


Pencil, Pitt Pen,


watercolor pencils and waterbrush--are


the tools, I'm most comfortable with.

When I was about 8, I wanted to be a cartoonist---or comic book artist---how I loved those! Winna

Too fun, and humorous. I rarely use my big industrial stapler, and it DOES hurt to use. I've stapled greens to the deck railing, but never the windowsill.

Your pages are so full of delightful details... I'm in awe of your talent and creativity.

Lucky you! A great sketch, a stapler and a nap! I can never find mine when I need it and I am sure if I were to find it - it would disappear before I could finish the portrait - Is yours really red? LOVE your pages

Thanks so much for your smiley comments..I once had a red stapler which I can not find, as it developed legs and walked off to have lunch with yours,I guess. So I made this new black one red for the Christmas theme with the green branches--and the dark sky border with snowflakes. Winna

didn't think it was possible to make such a great picture from such a humble object - just lovely!

I love the "finished" graphic art quality of all your work. You make simple everyday objects truly beautiful!

You've sure been going to town on your blog since LTJ. Like the stapler. Wish I had one that colorful. Chrome just doesn't do it. I don't know if you do awards or not, but I put you down for one. Check my blog for details. If not, fine. I'll be keeping up with your blog either way.
