Where I've Been and Where I'm Going

Sorry I've been away so long.

As many of you know, my husband of twenty-two years had been diagnosed with Colon Cancer. I tried to keep my blog going but just couldn't do it. We fought the fight for two years but the journey came to an end on June 29, 2014.

Was not able to keep my house with no income so my parents helped me buy a mobile home back in Florida.

So when I am up and going again, you'll see some new work.  I've missed you all.

Vacation - Route 66

The kids are almost finished with school for the summer. It's time to pack up your bags, load up the station wagon, top off the gas tank and go. My husband and I try to go home to visit his folks every June. Along the way we stop at different towns that still carry on the Route 66 traditions. The following sampler is just that - a sample of pictures we took on one of those trips. I really enjoyed making the restaurant table and chairs. It took two days to extract it.

I love doing extractions. It gives me that peaceful place that some find in Yoga. It's probably that puttering nature that I inherited from my father. I hope you enjoy the products of that puttering.

A Walk in the Park 1

Finally, the weather is warming and letting us get outside after a l-o-n-g winter. My husband and I may have pushed it a little by going camping. I loved taking tons of pictures. This kit is a sample from that trip. btw - the raccoon made it's appearance about 2:00 in the morning finishing up the last couple of pizza slices.

So, join me on "A Walk in the Park".

Sweet Treats

Last week I was spending some time with my parents. They live on a lake which normally is very peaceful but with all my parents bird feeders it was crazy with how many birds were on hand. Then in the water I watched as eight baby swans were following their mother.

I live in Michigan so normally the weather is a high temperature one day and totally different on the next. This particular day the thermometer was steady at 100 degrees. (yesterday it was freezing) I was so warm so I decided ice cream would help me cool off - but alas, no ice cream. That's when I came up with this week's gift of sweet treats. Enjoy!

     Just click the blinkie for the link.

    I'm also excited today because I got my old domain back. That will save me from having to remake all my packaging and business cards. It will feel so good to have the back on the net. Happy, happy, happy.
