Hello friends of my blog...I just wanted to post a note of thanks and appreciation for all the thoughtful prayers and good intentions sent out to my Mom and family. As some of you know my Mom had a stroke Wednesday and is somewhat better but still is in the hospital and I am sure rehab after this. It has been a trying time and I feel blessed to have you all cheering her on. I really don't know that she will fully recover from this one but I have hope from your kindness and prayers sent our way...thanks again.

Morning! I hope everyone is thawing out and I am certainly wishing we have seen the last of snow for awhile, how about you? I meant to post the other day when we got over 8" of snow with drifts of 11, yikes! For Chattanooga that is not the norm well I am sure this has been an abnormal winter for lots of people. So here are some of the beautiful pictures I took during our snowfall...

Well I am catching up a little and maybe even a week ahead of time. Imagine that, finally! I am in a monthly Art jourmal page exchange and each month is just what that month means to us. This is my page for February and I did add crystals but you really cannot see them that well. I love the look of pink and brown together so I just added lace, trim, crystals, a few words and of course chocolate...Judy I hope you like it..

Morning! I finished my February ATCs for the Fiberantics group that I am in. Our theme this month was "transparency" which I was trying to think of something different for this month with keeping it simple. Because as you all know I can go over the edge and just keep adding and adding...since my word for this year is "simplify" this is what I came up with...not that it was hard just time consuming but I am satisfied with the results. Now I have one more thing to complete which is my February journal page and I can finish my grandson's quilt....
Old Fashion Screen Door:
Old Fashion Screen Door:
What I did was use gesso on each card then ink stamped the background and used a flower stamp in achieval black so there was something to see other than color. I cut and glued the no-seum screen down and used thin pieces of wood cut to size and ink glazed to make the old fashion frame...added the bead for a door knob and called it done....I hope you enjoy taking a peek and I thank you!

First let me wish everyone a very Happy Valentines Day and I really hope you get to enjoy the day with your loved ones! It has been a very busy month so far between doctors and taking my m-i-l to the er for falls that could have been prevented if she would use her walker, I am already exhausted. That being said I will be going to my Modern guild this morning and that is always a pleasure to spend time with our group here in Chattanooga. I am still missing my DF Linda it is like everywhere I go she should be there but hopefully I will see her in April and we will get a chance to catch up.
Anyway I am in a mixed media group and the theme this year is what each month means to me: so here is my month of January...take care and have fun.....
I used gesso, watercolor; glitter; white marker; black archival ink and washi tape...I hope the lady that receives it really enjoys it. It was allot of fun to do.
