This is a post knob that was cut off of the old deck. I decided to decorate it and display it out in the new sunroom. The old and the new!

Here we go!!!

EVERYONE needs a blog!!! Just talked to my friend who got me started in all this ART about 5 years ago, Fran, and we commiserated over the idea of new computers!!! You have to be able to bend with the wind to survive in business, and that's what I've come realize is true for life in general. SO........ I will finally start this blog I registered for many months ago.

Come along and enjoy the ride!


What has been happening in my life

Since I'm starting this I guess it would be good to show and tell a bit about what's been going on in our household lately. From the pictures I loaded, you can see that we decided to tear off the old deck (didn't look as good as that picture now!) and add a sunroom to the back of the house. Allergies, bugs, the fact it was 10 years old, all played a part in the decision. Long story was a great experience and went much, much better than we could possibly imagine. But, right in the middle of it all, my mom passed away rather suddenly, and the joy of it all seemed lost.

Seven weeks have gone by, and I feel like I was "lost in space" or just in a complete fog all that time. My mind was like mush, and all I wanted to do was sleep. My art projects sat unfinished among all the things I had bought during our CHA convention trip on my desk in the studio. I really didn't care about anything.

But about 4 days ago, the fog seemed to lift a bit. My things got put away in a new set of drawers Wendy and I found at a really neat shop. I bought some new papers (does wonders for the soul, heh?) and LIFE GOES ON.

Here's to mothers everywhere. ASK ALL THOSE QUESTIONS NOW that you've thought about and wondered. Don't never know when they will be gone forever and you will not have the chance. And just do the best you's too short.

And thanks to Wendy, I'm finally getting this blog started that I signed into so long ago. Here's to friends, too! They lift us up, when we need it most.

Have a great day!
