Tuesday 9/23

Shari, Sandy and I decided to take advantage of the wonderful weather we were having and went to Cantigny Park in Winfield. Of course, we stopped to eat lunch first.
The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. We had a great afternoon,walking, talking,and taking photos of the beautiful plants and flowers.

Today is Bob's birthday! Can't believe he's 66. He's doing what he loves best, Golfing 18 holes.

Wednesday 9/24
I started a new canvas today. I guess I was in the flow. The whole day flew by. Still have alot to do before it's finished.
My friend Kay came over to visit in the evening. We've known each other more than 3o years. It's fun to reminisce and have a few good laughs
over some of the goofy things we did when we were younger.

The last few weeks have been a big blur. Now that my abscessed tooth is healed, I can think clearly again.

The only thing I did was sit in front of the TV and bead. There was no motivation to get out and do things. I felt numb and sorry for myself.

Now that I'm back in the swing of things, I'm looking forward to
creating and participating in the outside world again..
Above are the two bracelets I beaded...
Some of my artwork is being displayed at Gallery 200 in West Chicago
along with other members of WOMENS WISDOM from the Peoples Resource Center. I went to visit the gallery on Saturday. I was very impressed with the display and every one's art work. Most of the projects were taught by Shari. GREAT JOB AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED.
I even sold a piece. The details for the sale are being made.
I wasn't planning to sell. I just wanted to participate and be part of Womens Wisdom. This is an added bonus.
Maybe this will motivate me to do more collage work. I really enjoy it.
The sun is shining the weather is warm and it's the first day of fall.
Time to go out and play!!!!!
