I Can't Stop Scanning!!!

This is so cool now that I'm able to add images to the blog!! I can't stop!!
The first image is something I did over a year ago when I was reeeeeally feeling sort of "in the zone" and inspired in a very intuitive way. The other 2 are the inside and outside of a birthday card I made for my son last year. It was a take-off on a CD cover from one of his favorite bands called Breathe Carolina. Now....what can I scan next?!?!?!??!

Wow!! This is fun!!

This is the first finished page in my Make Your Mark Journal. Hopefully will have more to come soon!!!


I think it worked!!! This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom and I. I wish I had more pictures of myself with both of my parents but, as my dad was the photography nut in the family, he is rarely in a photo! I'm just experimenting a little with my new pc and printer/scanner!! Can't believe this worked!!

Someone gave me a card recently that said, "There are years that ask questions and there are years that give answers." I love that quote and I have to say that this has been a year of questions. I am thankful for the questions and for the opportunity to find the answers. I am thankful for all the wonderfully creative bloggers who share of themselves so freely and inspire me daily to keep plugging along. And I am thankful for soooooooooo much more!! Family, friends and the chance to be alive and awake and experiencing this life!!!! My heart overflows with gratitude!!

My paternal grandmother was born on 11-11-00. She would have been 110 years old today. Next year, on 11-11-11 she would've turned 111. And I wonder what it means when,so many times during the course of a week or month I glance at a clock and it says 11:11!!! I think Grandma is just saying "Hi!".

Nature at Work

While on the way to my doctor appointment this morning my husband and I saw a large hawk in the middle of the road feasting on something fuzzy. As we approached he flew up into a tree with fur and blood and guts trailing from his mouth. I know that to many people this is just gross and cruel. But I enjoy seeing the circle of life at work---it's the way it's SUPPOSED to be, since the beginning of time and I find comfort in that!!!
