#37 and #38

During all of the unpacking, rearranging, cleaning, organizing, and nail breaking, I just am so thankful that *e*'s Deck of Me pulled me away to do paper therapy! Just had to take a break to play!
Here are #37---DRAW something! I have never liked drawing, but I took a painting class 2 years ago at Balmoral and my wonderful instructor said, "You have to draw, and I will help you!" And she did! And now I love it! This is not much of a card, but it was a fun one! I drew the Pirate Parrot on page 42 of Ed Emberly's Purple Drawing Book.

#38--- I wonder...what Heaven is like. I blobbed paint dots on one card and then squished other cards on to it and pulled them off already decorated! Then stamped the acetate and put alittle silver paint around the edge and then attached it to the card with silver eyelets. Might add ribbon later.

#27 and #36

Really enjoyed doing these two prompts.

#27 Ali's prompt of *using junk mail* not much junk mail, but a lot of scraps , leftovers and bits of newspaper. Started weaving and then sewing, painting, stamping and so on. It was a blast!

#36 Loved all of e's wee pics and found an index sheet of my own. Her prompt was *life is beautiful*. I don't like that the ribbon covers the "life is", but you can still see the "enjoy it"!

#16 & #35

#35 Strength---I was brain dead and so asked my girls what they thought. Chelsi said "GOD" and good ol' "Arnold S.". Kelli replied with "power" and her brother, "Ryan". I came up with the "inner" strength part. Played with this for awhile & wasn't happy with it, but then remembered this sheet of acetate and added it. Now, I like it better.

#16 others contribute--- This took about 5 months to finish. Bonnie and Anna started it in Scotland at a Scrap&Flap and then Kelli and Chelsi finished it last night!

Still have to do Ali's and the goal of the week.

Isn't this the cutest?




Recently saw "...Chuck and Larry" and I thought it was hilarious! I love getting the giggles and usually it is with my mom or my girls. And usually it is when we are supposed to be quiet like in church. I love reading a book that makes you laugh out loud. Janet and her "tee-hee" in her emails. Calvin and Hobbs was always good for a laugh too! And doesn't this cute llama just make you LOL? There is also a funny bus stop story about Ryan announcing he was a psycopath. That had the whole neighborhood laughing for over a week!


Quiet...*mist is quiet*... Aberdeen Beach stamped with Aberlemno Seahorses.

If I could define would be in nature, a plant, a flower, a rose. And this one is from my front garden!


Just trying to count all of my many, many blessings!


Hey! How can Smokey the Bear not be important to me?
#25 Actually all of those faces in this picture mean something to me. I wish I could help them with the wear and tear of life. My 3 beautiful children...where have they been and where are they going?
