My newest art pieces from my on-line class. I'm Still loving it. It sure is keeping me involved and focused. Not much happening in my social world this week. Staying close to home. The weather hasn't been too inviting. I rather stay in and create art.

I finshed the covers for my book. I'm really having a good time taking the on-line class. It's right up my alley. So far, I've enjoyed all the videos
Mystele has presented. I love her casual, but informative style.

I'm already finding myself less critical of my work. It does come from the gut and represents who I am. Can't wait to do more.
Yesterday was our monthly ATC SWAP Meeting. It was fun as usual, and I really think everyone did a wonderful job creating this month. I believe we are more comfortable with each other.
Today was Miranda's 15th Birthday party for the family.
Keith did a great job of hosting it. This was his first social event since the separation. I'm proud of him!!!! We had KFC and a Portillo's Decadent Chocolate Cake. (YUM)
I'm gearing up to host my first CLOSE TO MY HEART gathering. I need
to focus on it and order supplies and most important of all, invite some people....
