Color 101

Okay!  I am all hot to trot.  I have missed the last two Alpha challenges at The Craft Barn.  But I am ready to go here and now! I can't get into  my craft room yet but there are some things I can work with at the dining room table.

The letter is 'O' and I have chosen the word orbicular.  You can find this challenge here 

Do you think that the word orbicular has anything to do with a circle!  I used Faber Castell Gelatos on my dictionary pages.  Izzy at the Craft Barn has a good tutorial about using this fun product.

I want to thank y'all for trying to help me with Bloglovin'.  As it turns out I am still learning about this feed.  To my surprise, the first of  July came and went and my computer did not blow up.  I was equally surprised to learn that a lot of the people I follow did not switch to anything but continued on with the Google feed. Live and learn I guess.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a little love if you have the chance.  And thank you too for all the comments on my granddaughter Nicole's post.  She was thrilled!!

When the Cats /away

My thirteen old granddaughter had my craft room all to herself for a little over a week.  At present, she has at least three art journals going and made several canvases.

This is a small sampling of what she was up to in Nanny's craft room.  I mean to tell you, this young lady had a ball!!!!!

Not only will you make this Grandmother very happy, but you will tickle Nicole pink by visiting my blog and leaving a little love.  Thanks a bunch!!

The Good News and The Bad News

The Good News ---
 My husband and I took our eleven year old granddaughter, Caroline, out west for a little whirl wind adventure to  Old Faithful  and other interesting points west.   This is one of my favorite pictures and unfortunately it did not come out as well  as I had hoped.
 Caroline had her own digital camera and took loads of pictures.
 This was our last day at Yellowstone and we took about a mile hike around the most beautiful hot springs I have ever seen.  They were absolutely gorgeous.
 The bad news - right before we left, I took a very bad fall but I got up and walked around.  My right leg hurt a little but off we went.  At the end of the mile hike around the hot springs, my leg started hurting something fierce and  I heard a pop. I could not go another step. As a lot of you know, I had a hairline fracture to my right hip.  No wonder it hurt!

I want you to know that my amazing granddaughter never complained one bit.  You see we had a lot more trip to go.  She had hoped to see some wolves and we were going to Mount Rushmore.  But no, we had to make our way home.  So while I lolly gagged in the motel room during our stay in Jackson Hole,  Art and Caroline went out and found fun!
 Oh my, did she love this hat and never (and I mean never) took it off.  She is the happiest kid and so funny.  I loved  laughing and traveling with her.  What a good sport!

.Instead of skiing down these slopes (you know this is where all the rich and famous people ski) Caroline went on an Alpine ride.  I know you can't see her but heck, I can't either!
So  that's the good and the bad of it.  Actually it is more good than bad.  I look forward to getting back to my craft room and having at it!

A big thanks to all my followers and to those of you who leave a comment.  I am not shy -I love it!!!!!
