still here

I know that for me this is a long time without posting - but I am still here.

The birthday gift I 'did' finish for hubby. It consists of seashells, starfish, sand dollars he collected as a child and that recently made their way to our home; images from two of our 2000 calendars; a little sailboat that I quilled, and along the top little ceramic sea creatures that he collected at Sea World (he grew up in San Diego county) over the years.

Some ice luminaries I made to have on the front porch as greeting for hubby's Mom.

K and Grammy.


  1. Oh! I LOOOOOOOVE the birthday present!

    Incredibly cool.

  2. These are all stunning. Love the birthday present--ponders trying to figure out how ta=o make a montage of husband's spiderman and lego collections. Nope. Not happening. The luminaires are beautiful and the picture of your daughter and her grandmother, wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

  3. The luminaries give such a healing welcome, they are really lovely, and so is your husband's gift. Sounds like you've been involved in the important things of life, your family, creating : )

    How very talented you are...and a great with time management! I just don't get how you are able to accomplish all that you set out to amaze me. I love the ice luminaires..and that photo of your daughter with the flowers is just awesome...what beautiful eyes she to the soul. I have not posted in awhile either...too busy playing Dr. Mom ;)

  6. What a fantastic collage - I am sure your husband treasures it. Are the luminaries made of ice? They are bautiful.

    Sending a prayer for peace form Australia - as it sounds like you have had some busy and stressful days.
