Hello World!

Long time, no see . . . .

We've had some health issues going on with my 17 year old daughter that had me way, way, way sidetracked for the last couple of weeks. Mono for one thing but more than that going on . . . prayers are appreciated but I think we are getting things lined out finally. She had some pretty bad infections going on in her body but she is getting better.

So, meanwhile . . . I did get a few things done, slow as molasses, but finally done. Here's my latest collage work . . . one of my new favorites. I'm not selling prints for awhile on Etsy, not until life settles down and I can commit to regular trips to the post office. Maybe next week. This piece is inspired by my real live chats with my neighbor Cindy.

Be Awesome Instead . . .

In the words of Barney Stinson, my motto for this week is "When I get sad I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story." I've probably told you all that before but it's one of my favorite quotes.

I've taken some unexpected breaks from working this last week and kind of the week before. Got bogged down. Ya know that feeling? Gonna work AND play and focus on the bright side of life this week. Too much going on around here to update you, so I'll just jump right in . . . started this week by goofing off this morning between preparing new images for collage sheets.

I get bored in the organizing and scanning and restoring and extracting. Sometimes just need to goof off. The before and after of The Predicament . . .

Needed to rework an old piece this last week for an upcoming project. It's linked to my flickr where you can find a link to the original too.
