Giving Hope

Are you feeling lucky?

A drawing to celebrate her 100th post! Great blog!

I am thinking I need to start planning for something for my 100th! What shall I do???

I keep seeing arches everywhere, so I ran over to Belinda Schneider's blog and grabbed the Gothic Arch template: . I noted this week there were several with pets, so I went with that theme. This was fun!

Sweetest Song

I only get to work in my studio sporadically. Today, I cleaned a bit, grabbed a few images, and then just sat down with paper, paint, and stamps and just had a wonderful time. I need to try and bring home less work in the evenings and get in there and just keep creating.

Home ATC

For a swap-house shaped with at least one face was required.

Tag for Heather's Book

This is the last book I worked on and I will be sending it home, soon. The theme is school and I decided to focus on teachers. It was a very fun round-I had not worked on tags in such a long time!

Stand Out in the Crowd

I went upstairs to clean-saw some images and paper and began to cut, paste, and stamp. Now, I really need to clean!

Saturday Collage

If anyone can tell me who shared this image via her blog, I would be most appreciative! I wrote it down, and now I can not figure out where! Arghhh! Love the image-fun to use and thank you!

Iowa Caucus Night

It was crowded! Our caucus had 66% of eligible registered voters show. That is a high % as I live next to a Drake University which has a law school. Although the University is closed, many students came back at their own expense to participate, so my precinct is a bit high on the number attending. These photos are to celebrate my daughter's first chance to participate. She will be old enough to vote in November, so that made her eligible to caucus. One of the photos is of my caucus-and the others are of my daughter and her friend in their off color shirts. One is a Democrat, and one is a Republican. They fought, argued, and just were downright self righteous about their choices. My daughter's candidate won, her boyfriend's finished in a not so good place.

My daughter and I will both be delegates to the County conventions, and have both been elected to serve on committees. I first started working for candidates when I was very young, and am so proud that she cares enough about our country to continue to work for candidates and her beliefs!

New Years Day Collage

I miss collage. I miss doing art. My resolution this year is to do more. So I decided I should really start today. My friend Laura sent me the image today-loved her and decided to use her!

But about that losing weight resolution-I will start that tomorrow, or not!!!!

New Years Day

We live in Iowa and Iowa Caucus Day (Thursday) is almost here. The political scene is heating up something fierce. Depending on which poll you trust, either Clinton, Obama, or Edwards is leading the pack for the Democrats; and either Huckabee or Romney for the Republicans. Today we went to see Obama as he was at my daughter's school, and it is close to home. These are just a few photos that Alex snapped as she was 5 feet from him in the front of the stage, while I was about five feet behind him (sitting rather than standing, as I am neither young, nor stupid).
