Here is my Modern canvas. I am really liking all the different sizes of these mini canvases. I went back to Michaels today and picked myself up a variety of both black and white while they were on sale. I layered 3 diff sizes on this one.
Thank you. My Mom will not get better she has alzheimers. Horrible disease! She is content, or as content as she can be, it is just a whole lot of work for me, but she is my Mom and was always there for me. Now it is my turn to be there for her. This is why I haven't been on much lately, and not having a computor didn't help. She is progressing fairly fast and everyday is a challenge because I don't know what to expect, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Dixie, that is a very tough road to go down. My dad died 7 yrs ago from something like alzheimers. My mom took care of him as long as she could and then he spent the last 3 yrs in a care facility two blocks from her house. My prayers and thoughts will be with you.
Dixie, my heart goes out to you. It is so hard caring for a parent but like you said, I wouldn't have it any other way. I treasure every day I have with my mother and I'm sure you feel the same way. You're in my prayers.
I have to say that you have gotten me hooked on altered art, Martica. I have dabbled in mini albums and such in the past but nothing like I've been doing these past couple of months since joining your swaps. thank you for pushing me waaaaaaay outside my comfort zone.
Wow Pam!! Amazing (crossing my fingers one of yours is mine) LOL I am amazed at your strength. When i have a head filled with such sad things going on around me like you do now I wouldnt beable to create for the life of me ... yet your doing some amazing things!!! Kooodos!
Got Vintage done last night - finishing Modern today. I had it planned out until I saw the bird canvas -- now my minds going in more torn open kinda way
Sassie, I started scrapbooking 6 yrs ago and it was a lifeline for me. I lived out in the middle of nowhere and ordered everything off the internet. My daughter had just left home with a guy I detested(whom she later married and is now rid of--YIPPEE) so I buried myself in scrapbooking and it brought me out of a very dark place. Through the years it has been my refuge and my therapy.
Pam, I'm glad to hear Cody and Doug are doing so well.
I've been trying to work on my inspiration canvas and it's just not coming together. I guess I need to put it aside for a couple of days. I've got family coming for dinner tomorrow so I'll be to busy cleaning and cooking to work on it anyway.
All of the canvases are so pretty! I can't decide which one I like the best!!
I am trying to get some ideas for my inspirational canvas! I took off work this Friday and that is my plan - to work on the canvas!
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for our guys.
Doug got to go home last night and take his first shower in a 5 days and sleep in his own bed. He was very happy even though the shower wore him out.
Cody is doing good. Found out that his surgery included taking tumors off his vocal chords and all internal organs in his chest cavity. The doctor says he is now tumor free. Most of the tumors they removed were killed with radiation a couple years ago but if not removed they could reactivate like the one on his heart did. His main concern is regaining his voice.
Pam - I would LOVE to sit a 1 on 1 swap up with you on a 5x7 cavas! I love your art, and would aboslutly cherish a piece to hang. I would want you to do what ever your heart told you to do I have collected a couple piece's of my fav artist's here, but all but they are coming
I hope my work you like some so youd want to swap with me!! I think I could make you something youd admire for sure
PS- My Modern Canvas is up for the taking! I am going to make it over, so if anyone wants her (no easel unles a chip board one would be ok with you, because Im out of them ATM but I do have the Tim Esal die) Just send me a PM Thanks
My daughter and her fiance are planning on getting an apartment in the next couple of months and are going with an Oriental theme. These items would be great for them as a housewarming present. Can't wait to see what Martica's catagories are this time.
Oh ok! So the week of the 24th, not on the 24th exactly - I was going to say, 'erm my health wouldnt let me commit to a mail on date -- unless i could just toss it in the mail box. My health goes from feeling 100% to 0% in minutes :S
I need to check to see which pics I have posted as I have finished all of mine. I need to finish one of the easels. Then I will pack them up, address them so that they are ready to go by the mail date.
