Focus on Life Week 33: The View of Above

I haven't shared any Arizona photos in awhile and this week brought a special treat to our skies: clouds and rain! Now this might not seem cause for celebration for everyone but when your average annual rainfall is about 8 inches you really start to look forward to those clouds. This week, some parts of Arizona received 3 of those 8 inches so it was a wet one.

Here are some wonderful clouds I captured.


Now let's paint those clouds with some groovy colors.


And just because I haven't posted anything beady for awhile, here's what I finished this week. The necklace strap is a simple bead crochet and the heart is a polymer clay piece that was part of a huge eBay lot I purchased awhile back.


Now let's see "what's up" in our other locations.

lucky you to get rain. We sure need it here in Kansas an hope to get some tomorrow. Those clouds look like cotton balls.

Claire said...

So agree with Alice - looks like someone spilled the bag of cotton balls into the blue sky - great photo!!

Yes - totally cotton balls!! The clouds are so pretty and I love the perspective with the cactus in front!

I love the puffy clouds - that is an awesome shot!! It was beautiful at times this week in the Valley, wasn't it?! Hopefully you guys didn't get too washed out up in your area. And you necklace is just beautiful. Simply bead crochet,....nothing simple about that!! What talent!

It sure was beautiful. The lane to our house looks like a bomb went off though! It feels like an amusement park ride just getting to the house! Thanks for the compliment on the necklace.

I'm trying to teach myself how to bead crochet.. see m to go 2 rows backwards for every couple forwards so not making a lot of progress! Love the cloud picture that is the right colours! Such pretty puffy little clouds!
