Life looks better after you've created a bit of art... try it.
Interests: Art, cooking, drawing, gardening, Zentangle, teaching, friends, mixed media and art... all when I have/make time... my darling husband Dan'l and our sweet himalayan kitty, Toby. Not necessarily in that order. Did I mention art?

It's the worst Kerri. Don't think about though, just enjoy Max as much as you can and give him a hug from me. Thanks much.

Thank for your note Fran. It is tough to lose them and, at the same time, impossible not to love and cherish them too =^..^= Melissa

Dan and I were happy take our friend Kiley for a walk today. She's my favorite neighbor - always ecstatic to see us and no judgement about how much tidier her yard is than ours. In the photo, she is putting on her oh-I'm-so-sad eyes, as she knew we were... Continue reading
