Our Environments

I used to work in coal mining, creating environmental designs for coal removal and reclaimation.   With all the spills and containing pond failures in recent news, it has me thinking about all that has been done to the area where I used to live.  I left long ago when all the rules changed and you could see that the environment was not going to be an important part of the region.

My life has been through many changes both location and my work, since those years working in Van Lear, KY.    Whenever I go back, now it is sad to see how much damage has been done, and all the people have been hurt physically and economically.  I don’t know how it all went so wrong, and when money became more important then human life and the natural resources.  I think it has not been good for us, and hope we can change our way of thinking, so we can help everyone, including mother nature.  We are all in this together after all

Winter Garden Color

Angelia Armstrong

Even though it is winter I still love the soft, muted colors of the yard and garden.  We have been talking and planning for some changes in the outdoor space for next year, slways on the look out for ways to make it more sustainable and add more food to the household.  Looking forward to a the new year with many ideas.  Hope you all have a fun New Years Eve!  See you next year.

New Fabric Designs for Spring 2014

Angelia Armstrong

It has been a learning fall for me.  I am trying to convert my hand drawn design ideas to the computer on Adobe Illustrator.  In my past career I did a lot of Autocad technical work, it is one thing to make straight lines and measurements and all that using a computer and mouse, it is so tricky for me to make my hand drawings look the way I want on the computer.  The boys did buy me a Wacom tablet that lets you draw directly on the screen.  I am finally feeling a little more comfortable using it.  It is still not quite the same, but if I want to have my designs printed on fabric,in large quantities, I will continue on, it is never too late to learn something new, anyway.Mod-Tear-Drop-grey-1 Tiny-Layered-Circles
