The second picture was taken on New Year's Day, when my daughter, Courtney went with me to take my mother to meet my sister, Charlotte and her family (who live in St. Augustine, Florida). Charlotte is the blond on the far right. My daughter is on the left and that's me in the middle holding on to my mother's wheelchair. This was one of the hardest things that I have had to do in a long time; was leaving my mother with my sister because my house is not wheelchair accessible and that I don't have anyone to sit with her while I work. I was about to start crying when my niece took the picture.

The first picture is of my mother, my nephew, my niece, my daughter and my other niece taken on New Year's Eve in my living room. My two niece's and nephew live in Houston, TX. (their mother is my sister Carol Beth)
Now that I have confused everyone. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

This is my first scrapbooking on canvas that I did for a friend/co-worker sixty birthday. I had the best time working on this. I want to do one for my mother, father and my daughter.

Today I have been trying to start a new art journal. But, I look on-line at all these others that are really good I just think why even try I will never be that good.

I did finally find the "Art Journaling" magazine that I have been looking for. The magazine is very informative.

Well, it's off to work tomorrow it doesn't seem like I've had any time off. I guess it's because I drove back and forth from my home to where my mother lived which is 70 miles one way. Oh, by the way I have moved all my mother's stuff out of the apartment. Maybe, now I can get back to my art journal, scrapbooking, making cards and altering something.

Hope everyone has a good week!

Well, I'm almost finish moving my mother's stuff out of her apartment. Tomorrow I'm having a yard sale inside my mother's apartment. This is the second time I've had to move my mother out of her house/apartment. I'm hoping to be able to get back to some fun stuff like scrapbooking, making some kind of art and workin on my blog. I want to put some pitures of things that I have made on my blog. Maybe soon. Well, here is a picture of something I did.

Sorry it's been awhile I've been busy moving my mother out of her apartment. My daugther, Courtney has helped me and my exhusband has helped also, which that has been very special to me. Courtney found some journals that my mother has been writing in that I didn't even know about. Here is a picture of my mother, Courtney and me at the rehab. center on Christmas night. Oh, also Belle is in it too (Courtney's dog and my grand dog).
