I have been pondering taking a blog break, and after much debate with myself I have decided to take one. I am going to take a break starting today and take the summer off and come back in September. I find myself saying dull and uninspiring things, I want to be able to concentrate on my art and enjoy the summer without worrying about my blog and posting. I will however continue to check and comment on my favourite blogs I do not plan on not surfing the web, I love it to much, but I do plan to cut back on the amount of time I spend on it. What brought all this on, is my best friend of 40 years is seriously ill and I have been spending time with her and realized how precious time is and you need to take each day and welcome it and make your day worthwhile. I have been retired over a year now and have not really enjoyed my time. I had to adjust to the life of a non working person, had to come up with a different routine. When you work you have a routine, you go to work, you come home, you cook, clean etc. When you are retired you have all day to do it, and if you don't get it done today there is always tomorrow. But I am a person who thrives on routine, and I was not getting anything accomplished. I also have an elderly mother who I am responsible for, and I need to spend more time with her.
So there it is in a nutshell, so for my 5 readers don't worry I wont forget you I will be busy visiting your blogs and making comments. See you in September.

Here is another one on canvas, gosh it looks really yellow here honest there are more colours, there is black purples, orange and white. Well today was a busy day, taking the mother inlaw to the airport, delivering something to my mother, taking the dog to doggy daycare. Went to the Laundromat today because wanted to wash the big comforter on our bed, they have really big machines so got that done, way cheaper than dry cleaning. I am home alone for another hour, so going to make the best of it. Looks like I have dread locks in that picture, I do not. But damn they don't look half bad......(lol)

I have been busy creating for some online courses I am taking, so I have been lax in my posting. Here is an example of one of the online courses I am taking. This course is just a quickie by Alisha Burke - Canvas Collage I am enjoying it. This needs some help, I am not layering the way Julie from Lost Luggage is teaching us, she is doing a great job online as well. Well today was beautiful weather, and I just lazed around am making some more stencils and stamps and trying to get the house cleaned as well. You no what takes the backseat when I am in the mood for creating the House. Talk to you all tomorrow
