TypePad HTML Email Ooh, cinnabon! Now that brings back memories! I think it would be like we had never been apart. Wish we could do it in person but will have to settle for virtual coffee for the foreseeable future.

TypePad HTML Email I think it will be. I am just hoping I can keep it up all year. Last year I tried to do a picture every day for 365 days and that was TOO MUCH!!!! One piece of mail a week seems like it should be doable. My fingers are crossed!

TypePad HTML Email Christmas was good. We were all very calm and relaxed and enjoyed our time together. Dad would have enjoyed the day very much. I really felt like he was there with us. Hope your 2011 is wonderful.

If these are the kinds of things that you create after an evening of tequila, I say...drink more often!!!! The Madonna quilt is amazing. I have just been browsing through your site and I have to say that when I finally make it to Australia (currently planned for 2016) I want to come and stay at your house!!!!

TypePad HTML Email I am going to leave it as is. I have another female form from a department store that is undergoing a transformation. But this one is just so lovely as is.

I hope that I can get the knack of doing nothing in stillness. It would add another dimension to my doing nothing.

Yes, it is fabulous! I love these groups because not only do I get to learn more about me but I get to meet such interesting people from all over the world. I did my first day of doing nothing today and, boy, was it ever hard! I think that she is right when she says that this might just be the toughest week.

Yes, my mother is a pretty amazing woman. If I can be only half as great I will consider it a job well done! I printed out this post and framed it for her for Mother's Day and she really loved it. We had such a nice time thinking back and telling my daughter about each thing on my list.

I am glad that you found me, too! Thank you for the kind words about my blog. I sometimes wonder if anyone out there even knows it exists and bothers to read it (the thinkings of a paranoid artist type I guess) and I am glad to hear that you enjoy it. Cheers!

Pamela, I am so glad that you had fun! I have been experimenting more over there with the different effects. It is really easy to get lost in doing it and discover that an hour has gone by just like that! Olwyn

That is too funny! My mom is a physiologist who specializes on birds and her favourite saying is die, adjust or migrate! I heard it so often in reference to personal issues or problems I would have as a teenager!!! I use it all the time in all areas of my life to help me figure out what to do. It is simple yet effective and helps me keep things in perspective. I have never met anyone else who has even heard of the concept - so great to hear your story!
