Here is a piece I made in the past when I was going through a very heartbreaking time. On the top you'll see the piece by itself and on the bottom you'll see how it looks after being matted and framed. I thought of this piece today because I am very, very sad. Tomorrow will be the anniversary of the last time I saw my dad alive and well (or so we thought) when he dropped us off at the airport. Thank goodness I hugged him and told him that I loved him that day. The next time I saw him he was in a coma and died 3 days later. Today would have been my parents 42nd wedding anniversary. Lots of emotions going on right now and the next few weeks are going to be really hard too. Thank goodness for chocolate...

It's been awhile since I've been able to post anything since we were on vacation. We spent a week on Whidbey Island (Washington) and had a wonderful time! We just got back last night and I am so behind with everything, but I wanted to pop in here to post a couple pics. I haven't even seen all of our pics yet, but these two I wanted to share now. The first pic is a sign we saw as we were waiting to take the ferry over to Whidbey right at the beginning of our vacation. The second pic is of the fabulous house we stayed in that is owned by hubby's cousin's. I'll post more soon. Hope you have been having fun too :)

Didn't get any art done this weekend. Saturday we went to a memorial service for my aunt who passed away a week ago today. Sunday a friend and I went to lunch at The Crab Pot in the Alamitos Bay area of Long Beach. Doesn't look promising for getting art done here in the near future either...

I have had no time for art this past week, but I wanted to post something here. Here are two pieces from the past that made it into some Somerset Studio publications. I have a few others that made it into some Stampington publications also, but these two are my favorites of them all. I'm hoping to have some art time this weekend, so I'll be sure to post if I make anything :) Hope you have a great weekend!

Have had a very nice past few days. Have had two very nice relaxing lunches (which means no babies obviously!) at two of my favorite restaurants (www.waltswharf.com and www.originalfishcompany.com). Hubby and I each got an hour long massage (http://www.wellspringsbodywork.com) yesterday. Hey, you gotta treat yourself sometimes! :)

Here are some ornaments I've made in the past. With the holidays not that far away, I need to start thinking of making more. Most of these had some kind of theme that I had to follow for a one for one swap with my very talented art friend Martha (http://m-is-for-martha.blogspot.com/). We did it throughout the year for a lot of the holidays. My life just got too hectic to continue doing it. I sure miss getting my ornies from her! Some of these were made for Secret Sister gifts and one was made for an art friend going through a very hard time. Have a great weekend!
