Brand New Set

Here's my newest set of word art for you to consider (for a donation of $2.00US, please). In this PROMISES set, there are 15 pieces, 300ppi. In addition, almost all have a reversed version as well. For instance, if you see the text in black below, there's also a white-text version in the set I'll send you -- and vice versa.

Thanks for all the very kind comments you leave me. I appreciate them immensely!!!
All the best,

Forever in my garden

The dimensions of this are 2" x 8" ... fyi.

Here's my contribution for the March Color Challenge at Digi-Scrap Obsession. I know it may be a bit corny, combining "March" with "Metropolis" but I thought the color palette Kim selected worked well for a cityscape.

All the best,

Amnesia Vu

I've reached another new phase in my life and it's driving me crazy. That phase when you start forgetting things ... well, that's inevitable. The past couple of years, since being diagnosed with diabetes, I've noticed a significant increase in the number of instances where I use the wrong word, and it's nonsensical. Like, "please hand me that sofa," instead of "please hand me my cola." Or "do you know where the birdhouses are?" instead of "do you know where the car keys are?"

So, now, this new phase is where I'm forgetting how to PRONOUNCE words. The debate in my head as I try to remember how to pronounce a word would be comical if it wasn't so frustrating!! The other day, I got bogged down with trying to remember whether or not to pronounce the "h" in "herbs." Aaaaaargghhhh!!!

Hope you have a pleasingly memorable Monday!

Hope your weekend has had a terrific start and that you enjoy it. It's very windy here in my part of Texas, but the temperatures are nice. Flowering trees are beginning to display their finery, which is always a treat for the eyes. I'll probably spend part of the weekend on a photo safari to capture new images for my stockpile.

I had a request for this next image, so if you can use it in addition to LEE, help yourself. I had planned a series of WA using it but can revamp it for those purposes later.

I have to admit that I've indulged in quite a few bubblebaths the past few days to help me de-stress since I joined the ranks of the unemployed. The aromatic scent of my favorite bubblebath gel, along with a cup of hot tea, lifts my spirits. It also makes my hand feel better to soak in the warmth.

Do it for yourself, if you haven't taken the time for one in awhile.

Blessings on your day,

Cherish friends

Today is the first day of a new workweek. For the first time in 27 years, I'm not going to be making the drive downtown to my job. I had to turn in my resignation on Thursday because I could not make the commitment to the new schedule they wanted to impose on me.

But somehow, I feel free, as scary as it is to be unemployed. The black cloud that was hovering over me is dissipating. My husband and I have been discussing alternatives, and although there are no quick fixes, it feels positive. My prayers continue for the future.

Hope you can use today's his/her word art:

Thanks for listening,

Delight in happiness

Shamelessly plugging my special little word art set, I would appreciate your considering ordering it for the low, low donation request of $2. A few of you have ordered it, for which I'm quite grateful.

Here's a new piece of word art which I hope you can enjoy as you work on your layouts:

Blessings on your day,


keep dreaming
