An Inchie and Time for another challenge!

    This past week I have enjoyed being out of school.  Love my time off!  I got several Christmas presents made and several cards done!  Lots of things going on.  I even had time for another Diva challenge.  I haven't done one of those in ages and I really missed it.  Perhaps after the first of the year things will settle down.  School has been really hectic this year.  I guess it always is, but somehow with a new grading program to learn and get settled into, it seems worse.
Diva Challenge #294

      I also have been working on my coloring book.  I hope to have it ready to publish by the first of the year.  We shall see.  That is a lot of work.  Of course, it is extremely fun work, but still work.
      Missed last week's inchie - "wormhole".  I decided to do a wormhole in an apple instead of the spacey one.  My odd sense of humor.

      This week's inchie word was lighting.  I drew the bulb, now you must imagine the lone chair underneath and the guy being questioned! 

      And last but not least, here are a few of my Christmas projects.  I hope next year to be able to attend a few craft shows and sell some of my things. 

      See you next week!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Let's see, I am doing this inchie from memory.  Clouds are in the sky and usually bring rainRight?  I can't remember what rain clouds are like.  We don't see them around here anymore.  So if I got this wrong, forgive me.  Seriously, we haven't had rain in several months, putting us in a 20" drought and the severest this area has ever known.  We have fires blazing out of control on mountains near us.  The air quality is "red" and it is hard to be outside.  I have known bouts of dry weather, but nothing this long.  And the weatherman says no significant chance of moisture is in our future. 
     Great day to stay inside and work on my coloring book.  As I may have said - because I cannot keep it a secret - I am working on a coloring book to sell.  I hope to have it ready to publish by Christmas, not for Christmas perhaps, but close.  I am mainly doing it for my school, but it will be sold on Amazon for anyone else who might be interested.  I am super excited and hope I at least sell one or two!  I will post the link when I get that far along.
     Take care and have a wonderful weekend!  (and if you know anyone who does a rain dance please send them to Tennessee, okay?).

Coast line

   This is ridiculous.  I did the inchie for this last weekend.  It has set on my desk for a week.  But I haven't put it up.  Oh well, why waste a perfect record of being late?! 
     We had a very busy week.  And throw in Halloween which sends my class into spasms . . .  Why can't they have that holiday on the last Friday of October?  A Monday?  Really? 
     Here is another drawing I did last weekend. 

No real challenges, just for fun.  Does it bother anyone else when you look at your followers number and see you have lost 2 followers?   What happened?   Makes me curious. 
     Thank you for dropping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
