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

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!

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!!!!
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).
