I'm back.....I think

WOW! It's been a very long time since I've posted anything on this blog...I think Facebook has gotten the best of me! With a new year well underway now, I hope to get back to doing some regular updates.
During 2012 I challenged myself to create an inchie every day...and using them to create a calendar in my art journal. It was an easy and fun activity, so I am continuing into 2013. Other artistic goals for this year are a monthly ATC swap with my friend Judy, finishing the scrapbooks I've started for my sons, finishing my Legacy Book and working continuously in my art journal. As appropriate, I will include photos along the way.
So....Happy New Year and Happy Groundhogs Day!

The calendar has turned to a new month and here we are at the end of 2011...hard to believe that the year has passed so quickly. The Christmas spirit is alive and well with us...the Canton house is decorated and my feather tree adorns the dining table at the Nest. These days leading up to Christmas are filling up with family and church activities; and tasks at work are a pleasant reminder of this season of Advent - what better place to work during this time of year!

Another week gone...

It's been a very busy week.
With the beautiful weather we've been having, Garett and I have been walking every day and enjoying this last bit of November warmth. The gardens have been cleaned up, the window boxes are decorated for Thanksgiving, the house is tidy and numerous computer related tasks are finally done....such a good feeling to have all this behind me. Most importantly though, a family issue, which has been weighing heavy on my mind, is resolving in a very good way, for which I am grateful and thankful to God.
We look forward this weekend to the wedding of a very special couple...we wish them all of life's best as they finally "tie the knot" and venture into the future as Mr. & Mrs!

Snowtober...

As I sit here at home, with no power inside and seeing snow outside, it's hard to believe that only a week ago I was enjoying the warmth and Red Rocks of Sedona. How can winter come on us when we are only 5 weeks into autumn? Oh well, this is New England after all, and things will change soon enough. Speaking of New England, the Patriots are doing miserably today...another dark cloud...hopefully that will turn around, too.
We have great memories of the trip...everything went well and we left the Southwest wanting more. As a matter of fact, just for fun, we were looking up property for sale in Sedona...that's what snow and cold will do!!!

Enjoying Sedona...

The last days of our trip have been spent enjoying much of what Sedona has to offer...Beautiful landscape, learning the names of the red rock formations, exploring ancient ruins, visiting special sites, experiencing a local winery, dining, shopping, meeting the residents and chatting...oh, and ballooning!!! So much to do in so little time...

Sedona...a "sweet spot"...

"You are in your sweet spot when you are energized, not depleted...."
With its red rocks, vortexes, hot air balloons and welcoming people, Sedona is surely a sweet spot for me. A close-up tour of the rocks by jeep and a bird's eye view from the balloon have given me a never-to-be-forgotten experience...this is such beautiful country!
