Ok so summer is here.  School is out.  And I thought I didn't have time to be creative before.  I don't know why I think Ill be able to do it  now,  But I really want to try! Ive got projects lined up everywhere.  In the garden, scrapbooking, painting and drawing.  I still cant seem to get started.  Although I did get started with a chair I did for an author visit at my sons school.  So I did do something and it felt really good.  So maybe that opened the door for me!!! Have to wait and…

Spring is here?

Birthday party was a great success!  Thanks for all the great posts!  I now move on to another project.  I have been asked by my sons librarian to work on some pics for a author visit they are having at his school..

Ready to go

Wow, Im  so excited. Ive already met some really nice people on here.  It is so nice to meet up with people like me, or at least sortof.  After I got off here the other day, I finished some design work in my bedroom, just hanging some pics that I hadnt got around to lately.  As it turns out Ive spent a lot of time in there, because Ive gotten the flu or something and have been in bed for a few days off and on.  So it…

getting creative

Hello my artsy friends.  Im trying very hard to get creative again.
