Life has kept me away from blogging the last couple weeks though I've been trying to keep up with reading and commenting on yours (but I'm not totally managing that either).  But now, my son came through his jaw surgery with flying colors and is definitely on the mend, the big 6-0 birthday party is over and my out of town guests are gone.  I have my life back! :)

I have received such supportive and encouraging comments from many of you about my son - thanks again....every one of them has warmed my heart!  I've received some outstanding mail art that I'll be sharing soon - I can't wait to get busy and make some return mail....I have some ideas I can't wait to try.

The weather has been outstanding this week.  It was sunny, warm and beautiful for my party on Saturday and has now hit sunny and 80!  Summer in Seattle!  Maybe some of my outgoing art will reflect how much I love having warm and sunny days.

So, I'll be back on track soon ---


  1. Glad to hear you are enjoying this lovely weather? Will you be going to the Bellevue Arts Fair? Sounds like fun, we're going!

  2. Glad your son is on the mend, and that you have crossed the big divide in style! Valerie

    We miss you but we understand, so glas your son is doing well. You'll be back color blazing. xo

  11. Glad things are settling down and he is doing well- life has a way of keeping us all on our toes. You are up to 80? We're thinking that 80 is like winter - okay- I think 80 is like winter- I am hiding inside with the 100 degrees and high humidity season upon us...I need to think about moving!

  12. So good to know this! That is great your son is doing better. You must be very happy. Looking forward to what you'll be up to next:)


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
