Life Is Good
So how is life treating everyone? Well, I hope. The photo is part of the bouquet of flowers I brought to my Mom upon her return home from France, which sadly -was a nightmare! Won't go into all the details but going to and coming from she was not provided the wheelchair service requested. Hence anxiety kicked in. She JUST made her flight leaving from Paris-but minus her carry on suitcase (which she has no recollection of what happened during her frantic search to find her gate get and get help). Only 15 min. from Newark, NJ airport and my brother, sister and Mom sat over 4 hours in a traffic standstill due to a bad accident and a fatality. She is OK but exhausted. I immediately filed with CDG and they found her suitcase (which contained her prescription meds, some souvenirs, makeup, jewelry etc.). And now, we're working with the travel agent to see what the next step is. She has no plans on ever flying to France again-unless I take her. But she made it. She saw her family. And she's OK. Life is good.
I still managed to have some fun time in between! Hubby and I went with son and gf, and friends to Komé Restaurant for the hibachi grill experience and we had a blast! The chef was so entertaining and funny- and everything was excellent. I had enough for three meals all together-so much food!
T Stands For Tuesday with my water and sake:)
For Tag Tuesday I have a mermaid tag (theme is nautical/seaside):
Stampers Anonymous seashell and fish stamps, Magenta bubbles stamp. Sentiment and collage image are from ARTchix Studio. I also used Stickles glitter glues.
I got my Simon Says Stamp August card kit and found a spot of time to at least do a bit of stamping:
Once I have another nice chunk of time I want to color and fussy cut the images and make cards with them and the stamped backgrounds:) Just found out the card kit has SOLD OUT! (sorry)
The theme at the Simon Wednesday Challenge is to "use a die and/or punch" so I made this masculine card:
Products: Lg white notecard and envelope; patterned paper (DCWV); rubber stamp greeting (Hero Arts), houndstooth stamp- on the envelope- (Papertrey Ink); Altenew Moon Rock dye ink; stitched circles dies ( Our Daily Bread Designs); Stickles glitter glue; bronze thread; mini hole punch.
Finally, I have a journal page I literally just finished before writing up this post. And it is meant for Art Journal Journey (Art For art's Sake), and Paint Party Friday:
If you have any questions about anything regarding this page just send me a note. I didn't keep track of all that I used and am just too tired to go look it all up and type it in tonight.
We are experiencing a week of very muggy hot weather with lots of intermittent downpours and thunderstorms so that means I get more time in the art room - at least I hope:)
I will be around to visit but after next week I am taking a blogging break to enjoy some summer fun.
See you soon!
