Thank you all for your gracious and generous comments on my last post. You have NO IDEA how they have helped and how much I appreciate them. Today was a good day and my son was feeling more normal. The power of prayer . . . sigh. I will keep you posted.
I finished reorganizing and cleaning out over 4000 digital files today - started that project earlier this week. Feels good to have my image files nice and tidy.
Here's two more little pieces done . . .

4 x 8 hand cut skinny mixed media collage. Image credits: mouth and cheeks are from Crowabout StudioB at Deviantscrap.com; eyes and nose from Sherrie JD's Body Farm and little star from Holliewood Studios also at Deviantscrap.com; lower gold border is from Lorie Davison of Studio Lorie at Scrapbookgraphics.com; small inner top border from cemerony.etsy.com; all other pieces are from my own stash. Lots of hand tinting.
Below is a digital ATC that I made in honor of my friend Trudi of Two Dresses Studio also known as Two. We both feel a little guilty that our friendship is so strong having not ever met in person. But, I guess if marriages can start that way these days so can friendship. Well, she has been a great source of reason and calm for me for quite some time now and so generous with her spirit and positive outlook on life. I have needed that more than ever and feel myself growing more positive and hopeful everyday. Mushy I am so I will leave it at that. Except, that I printed and hand cut a version of this ATC for Trudi and another friend I recently made who has also been great fun to get to know recently.

This is just one of the million reasons I love my husband. He reads my blog at some point almost everyday and doesn't always mention it to me but . . . tonight he said, I know you've been sad this week because the wings on your fairies were pointed down and they're supposed to be up. He's so cute and I love him so much. I hate seeing pictures of myself but here's a picture of us from a couple of years ago . . .
