"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Paddling Up Stream, But I'm Still Alive!

 Thought I should check in 
so you all would know I am still alive!
I've just been so busy creating some art orders
for others before Christmas. 
I'm really tired but it's a good kind of  tired.
  I know things will slow down soon.
Then I will be back to see you all  and 
get some new posts back up on this blog.

I've been in to personalizing 
many art pendants for others lately.
At first, I was a bit afraid
 to say I would put names on them,
but I'm so glad I took the plunge and did it.

They are really quite fun to create.
There is just something about putting a name 
with what you are creating. 
Somehow when I'm painting the picture,
 I look at the name and think about
 how special this piece will be 
because I'm making it for
 that someone special.

These were made to give to four sisters.
 Their grandma ordered them for Christmas presents.

So as I prop my eyes open,
( that is why they look scary big here)
 I tell you this, I promise I have not deserted
you, my special blogging friends!  

I'll be back soon!
I'll be leaving the day after
 Thanksgiving to spend a few days with 
my Pennsylvania family- daughter, son-in-law
 and the oh so special grandchildren of ours!
 (hubby has to work! I sure wish he could go too!)

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving
 with all of the trimmings,
but especially, may you be blessed
with friends and family all around Y♥U.

Love from me,

        Wow!  Bless that hospital God! Who does that nowadays?
