U-Pull Card

These are fun and inspiring to make. Isn't she elegant? Now that is a Victorian dress and all she needs is a mask with a long handle to match her dress.

Everyone Has Asked

I have been asked many times what the little symbol on my artwork is--well- it is a mask. A mask you ask? The kind that is worn in all the old Victorian movies-I am old but not that old to have really seen them at that time- also they are worn a lot at Mardi Gras. Actually, I bought one in New Orleans a few years ago just for fun. And no I don't wear it. LOL! After I won prizes in New York for my artwork while a senior in high school, I felt that just my name was entirely to boring. I do sign all my artwork on the back, I put my mask on the front so that everyone knows it was made by me upon viewing the piece. Now you know the whole story.

The Countdown has Started

Monday my blood test said I was strong enough to start my radiation therapy. Well, out of 33 treatments I have had 3. Yippee!. 5 days a week for 6 1/2 weeks. The time will fly (I hope). Thank you for all your prayers. Some days my attitude is up and some days it is a little down. I can feel your prayers so I have more up days than down days. This is how I am marking my daytimer to keep track of the treatments left.
3/33. Good formula don't you think?

Thanks to you all!

Travel with Giraffes

Use a piece of textured paper towel and cover with black acrylic paint completely. Then using Pearl Ex powders to add blotches of color to create an exciting background. Set aside to dry Cut to desired size and embellish.

Not This Week

I was supposed to start Radiation Therapy yesterday. Oh Pooh! I want to get this overwith so I can get back to my life. I had a blood test first to see if I was ready and -NGO- that's what we called it in the financial industry when I worked-before retirement. NGO- means Not in Good Order. It appears that I am not strong enough for radiation. Sooooo next Monday I will have another blood test to see if all systems are go.

Have a Blessed week all.
