It's about time...


It's about time I checked in on my blog and gave an account about my whereabouts in the last Month!...a lot has been happenning...


**I got some scary news about my health that made me stop in my tracks... I was just diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer but caught it early enough that it hasn't spread...read more about it here : TheARTofhealing Care Page...
**My husband and I had been toying around with the idea of me returning to the work-force, but thankfully it was agreed upon that I would continue to stay home and sell my Art for extra income! So I am going to look into selling for the first time on Etsy...stay tuned as I hope to get a site up and running soon!

**I was asked to become a co-moderator in one of my very favorite Yahoo groups; PaperWhimsy The group is not only a showcase for using Gale Blaire's fabulous images but it is a gathering of some of the most talented artists (I feel) on the web...so I am very excited to begin this fun new adventure!

**I am getting ready to send off several pieces of art to a New Gallery in Gresham, Oregon called RAGING TORCH...it is a glass blowing gallery with featured local artists...I will update you as soon as I can get some photos uploaded...

And if that's not enough...

**My oldest ( DD) has flown the nest and is settled in a Private Christian Liberal Arts University about 3 hrs. away...I really miss her...This will be the first time in 15 years that I haven't had at least one of my three kids at home.

I think you can see that I won't be sitting around wondering what to do with all my free time LOL!

I'm a little late, but big Congrats on the new Mod position on PW. So sorry to hear about health issue. Don't like the "c" word. Please take care of yourself, and let us know how you are doing. Rande
