A Piper's tune - holiday card

A Piper's tune - holiday card

A Piper's Tune

Come and make some music,
Come and join the dance,
Set aside your daily toil,
And leave the rest to chance.

Life's too short a journey
To waste the hours away.
Leave behind your worry
And take some time to play.

My annual holiday card. I always alternate a boy or a girl of a specific traditional culture - this year Greece - charming a dragon - a hydra - with a traditional musical instrument - pan pipes.

To my friends and followers, I'm so sorry it's been so long since I posted, It's been an intense year. The Animalphabet is done and I will be uploading the rest gradually over the next few weeks. I am also starting and insectabet for my new cousin Tatum, and am starting an endangered animal collection for Cynthia, so if you do like to stop around, I will be posting more regularly from now on.

Happy Holidays! - Llyn

It ate the sofa's stuffing,
  And left the house a mess.
After chewing up the carpet,
  It tore up my best dress.
It ate the kitchen table,
  the mower, and a tire;
Then hacked out a giant hair ball
  filled with chicken wire.
When it wallowed in the horse poop,
  It's feathers really stank
(Boy I'm glad I caught it
  Before it ate the propane tank).
It was being very naughty,
 And you may think it maligned,
But I for one am happy,
  Now that it's confined.

Another entry to Illustration Friday. If you haven't joined the group - you should. A new word to illustrate each Friday, and you get a week to complete the assignment. It really is a fun thing to do.

Everything has more than one purpose.
Some have many.
It is just a matter of thought
And imagination;
Creativity comes
From using both.

What you do with that 'ol " brain bucket" when the styrofoam just won't protect the noggin any more.

I'm going to try to be better about posting in the new year. Most of it concerning the publishing company my books and the life of an animation artist trying to get her work out there. All the best to everyone in this new year!
