It's Been So Long

I can't believe I have not posted since January of 2015!  Since then I have moved from the mountains of North Carolina to an island in the Atlantic  known as Amelia Island on the northeastern coast of Florida.  I love it here!
We have also had an adventure in Peru with our grandson Joe, Jr. 

The beauty of Machu Picchu!

My husband, me and our grandson Joe.

I loved the children in the Andes - talk about beautiful. 

I made a card -- I even surprised myself!!

In the South, we have a tradition which I am sure they follow all over the world.  Any time we can help a friend we usually take food.  I made this for my friend Alie.
Alie is having surgery in September.  I don't think I am telling tales out of school as she has posted it on her blog.   Such a talented lady and so very nice.  Check out her blog!

One more post for today!  A mixed media make that I will paste in my art journal.  I call it 'What Lies Beneath".

What fun - I have experimented with Lindy's Stamp Gang Star Burst sprays, Brushos, Micro Beads Pollen, Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste Midnight and Designs by Ryn Rising Bubbles.  I really had fun and want to do more!!!!!!

I know this has been a little picture heavy and I sure hope you haven't forgotten me!
Lots of well wishes for all of you out there in Blogland!

A New Year - A New Beginning

This promises to be an exciting year.  I promised myself that I was going to start an art journal and work in it as much as possible.  A great way to try new techniques and follow my heart's desire.  Here is a look at the first pages.  It is dedicated to my grandmother who more or less raised me and gave me unconditional love.  I do miss her but she is always in my heart.  I called her Nanny and my grandchildren call me Nanny.  On the left side of the journal is a picture of Leoda Martin Fisher - my Nanny.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring but I have to say - I am excited about my new journey!

I  am entering my first journal pages in the following challenge:

Inspiration Journal - Fresh Start -  The sky is the limit.

 Thank you so much for your visit and comments.  My blog has been all screwed up and I am afraid I lost a lot of information but I will slowly but surely get everything back in shape!  Thanks Anne for all of your help.
