my new grandson

once in a while my blog diverts from art in paper form and shines its light on a different kind of art. meet my new grandson, lukas john nicholas. he weighed in at a whopping 8 pounds 9 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. he has the most beautiful little round face. what a gift from god.

workshop photos

here are some photos from the big journal class i taught at she scrapbooks in the villages, florida, in the beginning of february. the girls that signed up for the class were all so wonderful - all true treasures. they worked hard all day long to finish their books and each one interpreted the way to put them together so differently. i was so proud of them and admired their artistic talents. i can't wait until they show me how they are filling them up and any new ones they might have made since the class!

here is michelle hard at work:

here is lori ann and lisa. they are best friends and such a riot. they had me laughing all day long.

here are sharon and nancie. they were delightful and made wonderful journals, too.

here we all are holding up our finished journals. what an amazing day full of terrific memories for me.

and the winner is.......

no one?
could it be that people didn't find the scavenger hunt to be enticing enough to enter? only one person entered a guess, although it was not the correct answer. there were 17 elements that came from my new rubber stamp line, but for the impressive effort, joanne, i'm going to send you a stamp of my choosing anyway! so send me an email with your address by the end of the week. thanks for playing!
