A current update

Hello to all my friends!
I am going to slowly ease my way back to my blog & art work.I will briefly explain my absence (with a great deal of difficulty) but I do want to explain a bit.
I lost my husband 2 weeks ago in a fall. We were married for 38 years & together for 42 years. Needless to say....I am devastated but I am getting by. I have a WONDERFUL family & amazing friends that are certainly helping me through. I will be extremely busy as my husband was a lover of life & many hobbies. I'll have many things to go through but my sister insists I take time out for some art & fun. I know my husband would want that too. I thank you all for your kind thoughts & I will try & post some art next week.

Some time away.

I've had a family emergency come up so I will be signing off for
a little while. I hope to be back soon.

New Journal Pages for Gail & Diane

Yesterday Gail & I spent a little time working on our journals. I am posting a pic from each one. I would love for Gail to start a blog but I think she enjoys looking at everyone's work but doesn't necessarily want to maintain her own blog. She's become good friends with all my blogging friends & I am so happy about that. You can see from the pic I posted that my sister is a very talented woman. I love having her back in California so we can have all this fun together.
Today we are heading to the County Fair.
Happy Thursday!

New Journal Class with Minnie

Good morning everyone! Yesterday Gail told me I was "slacking" on my blog...can you imagine? She's right! I need to get with it!
This past weekend Gail & I drove to our friend Minnie's house & she taught us a journal class. She had taken her class with Teesha Moore a few months ago. Anyone that knows Tracy & Teesha knows they are the king & queen of journaling. Minnie's journal was simply over the top! How stupid I didn't photograph it.
Minnie is a wonderful instructor & had all sorts of Teesha collage sheets among other great things for us to use.The class was a blast! I can hardly put my journal down. I want to work on it constantly. One of the best things about it is.............I actually WROTE in the journal! I bought gel pens & went for it. I was terrified to touch the pen to my picture..but I did it! This is my first completed page! It is 8x11 inches. There is more to come!
