We are almost through the hurricane…

A tornado, an earthquake and a hurricane this year.

Not so good for my nerves.

Here are my pages for Kathy’s

My computer is finally fixed!

Everything is new and different…

learning new technology was not

on my agenda…

I have a lot of new things to share…

And catch up with everyone…

I feel like I’ve been behind forever.

I hope you all are well

and counting your blessings.

I will make another post super soon-ly.

Look at the willow dance!


  1. That car is WILD! I wish my ride was that awesome. Fun project. :)

  2. Glad you and Mia are doing good. The car is looking great and the beautiful Willow tree is just totally awesome. Take care of yourself. I've been off and on too, Very busy lately. Take care.

  3. Wow what a car - I wondered what this was going to be. Now this is taking the IA challenge to an extreme - wonder what paint job you'll be giving your vehicles next week!!

  4. I have missed you SO much. It's wonderful that you are back. Also glad you checked in as the storm grows more intense.

    It's hard when so many things need updating. I was content to watch you update and change your studio. Now you have a lot of newness in your life.

    Gotta LOVE what you have done with that car. Very stylish and fresh.

  5. Wow! Lovin' Mia's car! Flower power!
    Can not believe all of the natural disasters lately. What is up? It's 117 degrees here. argh!

    Sweet Lisa, Thank You So Much For Your Kind Words The Other Day At My Place! It's Been Absolutely Crazy Around My House of Late And Each Time I Sat Down To Write You ~ Something New Blew In. But Please Know Your Generous Words Meant The World To Me! They Always Do!

    Lisa, I'm Truly Not Myself These Days. Mama Is Not Doing Real Well And I Don't Talk About It Much Primarily Because It Wouldn't Change A Darn Thing. It Is What It Is And That's All There Is To It. I Just Walk Through Each Day Handed To Me And Try To Distract Myself Whenever Possible With An Occasional Painting Project.

    Art Has And Always Has Been, My Salvation Of Sorts. Hey ~ I Know You Review Your Incoming Comments (like I Do) Before Posting Them, So You May Not Want To Post This One. Sweet Girl, I'm Rather A Bleak Blogger These Days, But If I Didn't Have My Online Friends Like You, I'd For Sure Fade Into Oblivion. Please Know I Love U My Dear Friend..Terri


Thank you for taking the time to comment ♥
