Good morning,

Let's ease into Monday with some soft tones, biscotti, and inspiring artists, shall we?

Sunday afternoon I made chocolate almond biscotti for the first time and really I don't know why I've never made it before. Perhaps the double baking eschewed me but it was really rather fun.

The images above have me thinking about light, white, and softness and I want to explore these nuances on my own this week. Since we began the Noticing Project in January 2008 we've had numerous people tell us how they are noticing moments in their own days and even sharing the idea with their children. We love hearing your stories so please feel free to join us all through the month of March {and be entered into a little drawing}.

} Browsing around the Paulson Press site I found inspiration as I work on new mixed media pieces:
} One of my favorite artists is Squeak Carnwath. This one captures my sentiment exactly.
} Martin Puryear. This piece and this one called "three holes".

} Check out Shari's new project, everyone needs a rock. It's gonna be good; it already is.

Since we're easing into Monday, would you care to join me for some biscotti & coffee?
