Oct 1st 2008

That is the day the new project starts. The photo project. You can link to it from here. I haven't dedicated as much time as I should to A single Picture. I will be getting all my ducks in a row soon.

Anyway, I haven't had much time to do other things either. I really do need to work on my time management better.

For now please enjoy the picture of geese that I took at a wine tasting I went to last night. The winery was on a private lake. We go up there about once a year. But some how I always manage to forget how pretty it is up there.

Some catching up to do

First, at the beginning of last week I told you about my little nephew. That picture at the top of this entry, that is him. He is wonderful, completely darling. And while we don't have a complete diagnosis, I will just tell you that he is going to be fine. The diagnosis that his parents have now is much better then we thought. Baby Micah will grow big and strong and will have the faily tradition of pudgy little legs!

We spent the weekend in Washington state. We attended Matt's Grandfather's funeral. And while it was certainly a sad time, it was also a time of connecting and bringing together. Grandpa was ready to be with Grandma. And I know that they are happy together.

Matt's mom had been going through Grandpa's stuff for a while now. She had been setting aside things that she knew a specific family member would be interested in. She had a little box for me. It is a pretty box, but what on earth could be inside?

Grandma Lloydenes wax seal set. Complete with her signature pink, and a rose seal. I didn't have a chance to get to know Grandma. I think I only met her a couple of times. But I remember the pink.

I will be sharing more bits and pieces as time goes on.
Be Well

blessings to all

Healing Thoughts

This blog entry is for my nephew. I do not know many details at all. But my little nephew, who is just months old is in the hospital with a mass on his eye. My families thoughts are with him and I am sending him healing thoughts. Please feel free to add him to your thoughts and prayers (if that is what you do).

Be well and whole soon little Micah!

Who would be interested

In a year long project I am thinking about? I am looking for two or three people, preferably from differnt parts of the world, but I won't be that picky.

Leave me a comment here if you are interested in getting more details.

OMG, I am posting

This is Sissy munchkin. I love the rainbow eyes. And this is why I have been so busy all summer!

I know, I know... it has been forever since I posted anything. But, in my defense, summer got crazy there in August. We had to finish up the Wizard of Oz, hubby took the kids camping, and then we had to get ready to go back to school.

School... with all it's new logistics. I have one in High School, one in Middle School, and one in Elemetary School. Thank goodness they all have an independent streak. They all walk to and from school (at least while the weather is nice).

And since school has started, I will have two days a week of me time. I just changed my work schedule so that I have almost all of Thursday and Friday off. What I hope this means is that I will have time to work in an uninterupted manner. Then I can have things to post.

With all of that said, check out the back to school card I made:

Frankly, I think it is darling.

Let's see, upcoming projects. Lots of stuff to scrap. I am helping a friend with Halloween costumes. This will be a great change for me, as they will be darker than my usual work. But I am so excited about working on them that I nearly ran out today (free time, no kids) and bought fabric to start her skirt. I may do that anyway. Already looking to Halloween cards, and Christmas cards. Had a super fun idea for those.

That is it for now. Much much more later.
