Teal and blue


I have a dear friend who is in love with teal and blues. She is also an artist friend of mine and I knew that she would appreciate and one of a kind art piece for her home. I had so much fun drawing this and perfecting it. it was worth all the time and energy when I watched her reaction when she opened it. 

I am so blessed to have people in my life that not only appreciate my artistic abilities but encourage them as well. This special lady is just one of those memtioned. 

Here is a close up so you can see the detail and shimmer in the finished product.

Marry Christmas!! (and no I did not misspell that)


Oh yes! My boy friend of three and a half years, got down on his knee and asked me if I would marry him. With both of us coming out of horrible divorces, we both had an understanding that we would probably never marry again, but we knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with each other. 

So after we have all unwrapped our gifts on Christmas morning, he walks over on his knees and here I am, bedhead, pajamas, no makeup, preoccupied with posting the events of the morning on facebook. The kids are all playing with their new toys, and he says, “So, will you marry me?” And he hands me the most beautiful ring, 

Of course, I say yes after asking him if he was joking. 

Telling his family and mine over Christmas was amazing because everyone was very happy and thankful that we have taken this next step. 

When is the date?  I say, after we save up, maybe two years. So, this now opens up a wedding planning section of my blog, which I am very happy about. I love this new adventure and I love that I have the opportunity to share this with all my friends and followers. Stay tuned and if you have any suggestions, comments, questions… tips and tricks, I am literally at square one and even though I was married before, we eloped, so I have NEVER had a wedding!

I love him and Merry Christmas to all of you and yours!!
