We are family of women, we love each other unconditionally. We three sisters have had our ups and downs as in any family of women. In January our sister suddenly passed away. The loss resounded through our lives like a bullet and the grieve is endless, but as a family we handle it. We each handle our grieve in different ways, I started to write poetry again, not happy stuff mind you, but it helps me. I wanted to share with you one of my poems that I wrote at the airport on my way home after the funeral

Sister Love
I miss you more each passing day
You've changed my life is so many ways
The sadness still seeps through my veins
My heart is breaking and I feel such pain

One day you were alive,well and strong
The next day came and something went wrong
Our hope for you was you felt no pain
Without you how can we ever be the same
My tears overflow like a river of rain

Your an angel now its time to go
I will always look to heaven and find your soft glow

I will never forget you
A daughter,sister, wife and mother
You can never be replaced by another

Dont know what to with a canvas make it a gift

I had a bunch of small hard canvas that I got at the dollar store, you know you look at it and say I could use that, and you dont have any idea what you would use it for once you get home. Well I had a gift to make for a really good friend, she was leaving where we work for many years and taking on a new experience. I envy her as she was ready to take on a completly new job and leave her comfort zone. Well I decided that I should make a little goodbye gift from her friends and this is what I came up with, she loved it and I was happy that I made it for her, after all we have been friends for 33 years.

The Studio

First off whoever commented on my pictures and art thank you very much for the nice comments. At least someone is reading. Now here are a couple pictures of my studio, you cant see the whole room as I have to take different angles, more coming. I love it, its all cupboards and counters and space, even though it is my basement, my basement is finished so I dont feel that it is a basement. I'll will get out my handy digital and take some of the basement to give you an idea. I do lots in the studio, sometimes I just go down and do nothing, just to get away and get a little peace and quiet, you know ladies sometimes you just need it. Its all my space and I can leave it messy if I want, as you can see by the pictures, actually that pretty clean. Well another day tomorrow and its 11:00 better get to bed soon, i usually dont make it till 12:00, i like the quiet in the house to get some things done.

Did you know a coaster can be ART....

I posted a coaster that I created the other night, I had these coaster from a restuant (Chillis) which I just spelled wrong, and thought I could do something with those but what so I made a little tag to hang on a door in my studio with my initials on it. I then proceeded to make a book for my friend for her birthday with pictures and journalling, it turned out really nice, but I did not take any pictures.
Today I did alot of nothing the weather was cloudy , I decided to do some shopping, went to Michales (bought nothing), went to the Bay (bought a Tommy Tshirt) went to winners, , some shirts for my husband and then came home. Pretty interesting stuff eh!!! Oh well best get going got to work tommorow.

Is a Shoe art ......

I have posted a picture that I created yesterday in my studio and decided to post it, not to many people read this blog or leave comments so I fear my art will not be highly critized because the people who do read it or either friends or family.
Well today as been a crappy day at work and at home, the weather is cloudy and quite chilly, and work is work. We are going to watch a movie in a few minutes the Detantor, sounds like my kind of movie (ha ha) and then I will go down to the studio to clean it up. I am going to post some pictures of the studio starting tommorw, I have done some new things.

Things go better with .........

Diet Coke - could not find any diet coke paper and had to settle for coke , but its all in the family. You might wonder why is talking about diet coke, because I love it. I drink it for breakfast, lunch, supper, coffee break, you might say a bit obsessive then you would all agree with the doctor. I have been cut back to three a day, how do I live, it is very hard. I have to ration them, water on the way to work, diet coke when I get to work, water all day and a diet coke for dinner. I think it was the doctors plan to get me drinking more water and less coke. I even made the ultimate sacrifice and switched to Caffeinne free diet coke.

Leaving on a Jet Plane.

Well today was the day my mother went home, its not like i dislike my mother I love her dearly. But there are a few things that get to me, she loves TV but cant hear, refuses hearing aids and plays the TV so loud that I am sure the whole neighbourhood can hear it, so we bought headphones for her, they work like a charm and gave me my sanity back. Since she cant hear well, you ask her for instanace have you seen the clock, she says there are no rocks here! But I quess we all get old and our kids will say the same things about us, if I follow in my mothers footsetps it wont matter anyway because I wont be able to hear them'

Beach Blues

I have been thinking of the beach today, its hot here and we are far away from any beach, but the blue water has a calming affect on me and I wish I was there. I spent a few days last year at the beach with my family and we had the best time, if i had known that one us would not be here this year to do it again, I would have savoured the moment more.

grad mayhem

Well I made it, got through the grad and the commencement with very little wear and tear but not much left in my wallet. Did you ever think that high school grad's could be so much money. What happens if you dont have any money, does your grad not get to go, do they get ignored by their fellow classmates because they dont have a designer dress, limo, have hair makeup and nails done. Do they have to get mom and dad to let them off at the corner and sneak into the banquet. I think that all this hooploa for one night is a waste of money, and does nothing to promote heathly self esteem in teenagers today. It certanly does not promote individuality.
