Since I am an "empty nester" I'm at a point in my life where I want to build a new career and direction to go with my life. At first when I was thinking about this, I thought " I never worked in an office or had a "job" so I didn't have a career." But in thinking about it, I realized that I did indeed, have a career and it was the only one that I ever wanted to have, being a mother. Yup, I have a college degree, but having a family and being a mother was all... Continue reading

So.......I haven't posted here in over a year. It's a fact that I am not proud of, but it is what it is and I am not going to beat myself up about it. I'm going to start afresh and just keep putting one foot in front of the other. What are the reasons....oh I don't know....I'm from the generation that did NOT grow up playing on the computer from infancy on. It seems like everything that I try to accomplish on the computer becomes a big stinking deal and never goes smoothly. Then I get frustrated and ignore it... Continue reading

My Lifebook 2014's first lesson centers on our chosen "Word of the Year". We have 2 assignments, the first one is a warm-up to get us comfortable making mixed media backgrounds. It also asks us to think about what we want our heart to say to our heart, what our heart needs to hear. The second lesson asks us to create a painting of our "inner guardian angel" and to use our chosen "word of the year". Here is a picture of my first project. I'm rather happy with it although it is a bit darker than I meant it... Continue reading

It appears that I haven't posted so much as a word here in over 2 years! Embarrasing and awkward! My only excuse is that I have had many changes in my life over this time and have been slowly sorting my way through the ups and downs. I feel ready now to take on a new direction in my life and finally have somewhat of an idea of what I want it to be. I think what has literally paralyzed me these past years has been an overabundance of choices. I have way too many interests and "hobbies"! All of... Continue reading

I love pennants and they are so popular right now!!

Oh my! How can SU! do this to me once again? I know it happens every year and I do understand that they need room in the brand new catalog, but why do they always pick sooooo many of MY favorites to retire!! Well, maybe next year they will consult me first before they release their "Last Chance" list of retirees!! Haha! I somehow doubt that will ever happen! Well, here are my top five "break my heart when they go" stamp sets! *sniffsniff* #1 - All Holidays -this set includes my all-time favorite favorite stamp, the one that reads... Continue reading
