losing time, or is it summer?

as the days have grown longer, i seem to be misplacing's been nearly a month since my last blog and i have a list that is growing longer and longer about whats going on in the studio, in the appalachian mountains, in my life as a mom and wife...artists to feature, photos to share....

summer i guess has just slowed me down from my 'normal' order of schedule is here and there...and 'playtime' has been stealing me away from my little world of art....there is truly something unforgettable about making s'mores with friends over the fire pit; having a potluck on the 4th and viewing fireworks from the yard with friends; children playing with sparklers while the older ones light fireworks (snuck across the border) with hubby...these will be the days that they will remember for many years to come...there is truly nothing more beautiful than summer in the mountains, it makes you forget your have responsibilities altogether...and i'm loving that!

a birthday has come and gone....phew, hard to believe i'm 52 i felt the need to paint my toenails cotton candy?

here are some photos of your collections; i just love it when you send these to me, i can feel part of your home and life:

(that's my room above, yep i do love purple and pink!)

it amazes me that we have so many different styles; yet game boards look so beautiful in each and every makes our homes 'us'....when my friend comes over she always says that walking through my house is so fun for her; every corner has someones art, it is what makes our home 'us and unique...

ok, that's my first step into the blogging waters again....i have much more to share; next week though...

Thanks so much for the beautiful game boards. They are absolutely

couldn't be happier!!!!

I cannot thank you enough for getting the boards completed and shipping them to me. They were awesome! My sister and brother-in-law loved them! I am sure you have just gained a future customer. They love ASU (2 of their daughters have gone there), the mountains, and local artists. The family chose the perfect gift for them.

I hope you have a busy and productive summer...and some lazy days with family as well. If you do not mind visitors, I would love to visit you if I get up that way.

Stay cool...

Best regards,
