These cards are part of a deck I am making for a swap. Still have a long way to go. "Celebration Of Women" is the name.
As usual, I want it to be cross cultural.
I finished the "Found Object charm swap. Need to package them and get them to Belinda.
One more swap to go and I'm done for awhile.
I want to start making trades for Art Unraveled.
The weather here SUCKS. What a change from Phoenix.
My sister Naomi is in from New York. I'm going into the city later to see her. All the siblings will be getting together...
Should be fun...

And that's no lie. Beautiful blue skies, sunny days and lots of greenery and of course, warm weather.
Stayed 5 days more than originally planned.
Couldn't part with the great weather.
Of course it's grey and cold in Chicago today....
I might become a snow bird next year.
Spent alot of time stitching , eating out, shopping and apartment hunting.
We went to the Festival Of Arts in Tempe, drove to Cave Creek, spent time in Old Town Scottsdale, visited with friends , saw two movies,
ate alot of Gelato (That's popular in Phoenix right now) and just plain relaxed for two weeks. Now , I'm back home to reality which really isn't too bad...
