Off to Convention

I have been busy getting ready for convention. I also took time out for my dad's 66th birthday. I went home on Thursday and drove back on Friday. Pictured is my dad, niece, and nephew. They have been with Mom and Dad all month. There are 3 all together. The3 yr old was sleeping.

Close To My Heart's Consultant Convention will be Wednesday - Saturday. I am going down a few days early to play. Not sure what I will do tomorrow afternoon after I get there, but on Tuesday I am meeting up with some other consultants to play. Maybe I will be my picture with a character!!!

Here are some cards that I made for swapping. I hope you like. Will probably not be posting again until after my return.

Busy, Busy, Busy


I didn't realize how long it has been since I last posted. I have overdid it with the surgery recovery and had to take it easy.

Last week was very busy. I had Professional Development( Summer School for Teachers) and my family was up helping me build a deck. When the doctor said regular activity I am not sure he meant building a deck. I have been very sore the last few days.

Here is a picture of some of my family and the finished deck. I had a brain malfuntion and forgot to take pictures while we were building. It was tough, I was gone in the mornings and when I got home I got right to work.

It was a very busy week. At the end of each day everyone was ready to sleep. My nieces and nephew came up with my parents. The following are some pictures I got of everyone in the evening. The kids were exhausted, but didn't sleep well in a new place.

Thanks for looking

Summer Fun

Saw the sketch for this card on CPS It is a version of #72

This is a close up of the bucket and sand. The picture isn't very good. I need to learn how to take better pictures. The colors aren't true to the card.

Surgery Went Well

Surgery went well. The recovery has not been as easy as the doctors said it would be. I have had a lot of abdominal pain. The Gallbladder surgery was an outpatient surgery, so I was home on Monday but still out of it. My parents stayed until Thursday morning. I have slept for the last few days, and am starting to feel more like myself. Hopefully I will have some artwork to post soon. Thanks to everyone that called to check on me and to those that sent thinking of you cards.
