The Time Of The Lilly

Fast and fleeting they appear.  Standing in the sun, heads nodding to every breeze; they are always part of every mid-summer's color story.  They appear where they will amd maybe where the birdies carry them. You'll see lillies in old established gardens beside stately homes and in the same glory along ditches on back country roads.  Dressed for the day in full bloom, their lives exist only in the moment, just like ours. Yet the power of their existence lives on long after they fade.  The cycle of life continually creates new wonders.
   "Lillies" title page illustration from the book, 'Earth Friendly Fabric Design'  by Juli Sibley, to be released later this year on Amazon.  The book is about direct dye, line resist, and line media, all with Createx Colors.  I am pleased to announce that Createx is the sponsor of this book. Look for it and Earth Friendly Design Sets by Createx out in stores and online later this year.

  1. Hello Juli! It's Mary Ellen (yesterday's yoga at the Kroc)...I love your site!!! I love your thoughts...I love your art!!! I especially found the lilies inspiring. Are there lily note cards? I would love to order some. My search for Thieves oil began at Earth Fare and will have to continue until I find it. I loved the spray and recipe and I most especially loved meeting YOU!
