Here is our card for Mary(all us girls from work--left to right, Julie, Diana, Cathy (Mary's daughter in law), and ME! The pictures are below, but this one is the one I chose for the top! I will send this in a cello envie, so she can see through it and have the fun before she even opens it!
Mary's birthday is Sept. 1st --please keep her in your thoughts! She is suffering from Ovarian Cancer.

These are the sweeties I work with! Julie, Diana, Cathy and myself! I brought my camera today so we could get a couple of pictures, and from these, I will make a card to send Mary......something to brighten her mailbox! She is suffering from Ovarian Cancer and I think this will bring a smile her way! I will try and show the card when I am done! Aren't these girls adorable? Aren't we silly?

My hibiscus are opening, is there anything prettier?? They are amazing! LOVE THEM!

It is the HARLEY DAVIDSON 105th ANNIVERSARY here in Milwaukee! There are bikes everywhere, and the streets are filled with a special rumble! :0) Anyways, here are some bikes I saw this morning on my way to work! The bikes are truly BEAUTIFUL, custom and fun! Love seeing them! WOW!

Finally, Amber graduated in 2007 and I promised her I would collage the matte around her graduation picture with her and her friends I ran the pictures in black and white and collaged with some wording! She loves it and I think it compliments her picture well! It will be a nice memory keeper for her in the future......she can look back at those silly faces......all summed up by one of the quotes on the frame which says......"Life is better when it's fun!"

Here are some Row Houses for a swap of 13! They measure about 5 3/4 inch by 4 1/4 inch. I have used some pretty papers, stamping, quotes (on roof) and chip board swirls that I painted......the image is a transparency over wording paper and a silk flower wiht chip board center and brad. I hope they are well received! When the return comes home, there should be a little village..........what fun! :0) The row houses could be any shape we wanted within a certain size frame! I gave mine a chimney! Thanks for taking a peek!

These are some pins I made for all of us to wear at work, because our sweet Mary (owner of the restaurant where I work) is in a battle with Ovarian Cancer! We will wear these as we work, so customers and most of all, WE can keep Mary near to our hearts throughout the days and night and in our prayers as she fights for her life. Ovarian Cancer awareness month is SEPTEMBER and the color of the ribbons is officially teal! If you are so inclined, any positive thoughts, or prayers for Mary would be appreciated! Thank you in advance, as she has been an angel and inspiration in my life! :0) Hugs,Patti
I got my INSPIRATION banner back from the swap! For now, I have it over my art desk, I could not just put it away until I find the perfect is soooooo gorgeous, I just wanted to see it up immediately! What fun right?? Each artist (a seperate artist did each letter) did a fabulous job! The letters spell out I.N.S.P.I.R.A.T.I.O.N. And we picked a color theme! Artists could do whatever they wanted as long as the letter was visible......and the size was all the same! I love this! I am sure you will see the inspiration it offers as it hangs with all the different styles and touches! FUN! Hugs,Patti

Finally, some actual art for you to view! :0) These are the next pages in the for the fabric book rr that I am in with the hidden pockets! This book has a nature theme and was great fun to play in! The green page below is bases on bird nests and I have eggs hidden in the pockets that say Discover and Dream! The page above with the blue/purple color is based on Friendship but also has eggs, leaves, and bees ,butterflies etc! I hope that Nat likes them! Her book is full of gorgeous art and part of the enjoyment of this rr is seeing the other artists' ammmmmmmazing work! WOW!

Alex and her Dad have a Bernese Mountain Dog and they just had a litter of 7 puppies! I saw them the day they were born, and Amber and I went back to see them today........ohhhhhhhhhh there is NOTHING like puppies! Something so innocent and full of love! Aren't they precious!
I think I want them all! Hehehehe! Except they grow up to be big beautiful dogs that need some attention and exercise for sure! They are a wonderful and smart breed! Enjoy!
