The Rain in Spain

The boy should be landing in Spain as I am typing this blog. He is off with his school choir singing in the Cathedrals in Spain. It is very exciting. They will even be singing in a Benedictine Monastery/School in Spain. He text me from Germany this morning. He has not slept of course but…

Tea for two

I have a older lady classmate at the college that I have been attending. She just had a birthday and she is going in for surgery in a week so I decided to treat her to a California version of an English High Tea. I spotted a cute tea room in the city that we…

A mother’s love

I am preparing to be parted from my boy for the first time in a long time. This will be the furthest he has been away from us. A different continent. We will be halving the distance because we are going to a US city that is five hours closer to his destination. It is…

I am so thrilled. I am finally done with my final digital painting project. I am so happy with the result. The vignette was of our own design. These items were things I had in my sewing supplies. It took me about 6 weeks to finish it just in time for the final presentation on…

and it goes on and on and on

This is the project that never wants to end. I have been painting this forever but I must say that it is coming along nicely. My professor helped me fix that issue with the paint on the buttons and La Mode logo but I biffed it and forgot to save it as a riff file…

Yikes!

So much for making sure I kept up with a posting daily. I guess this happens often. I have not even been to the blog since Easter. We had a lovely low key family celebration with the old folks and cousins. I love having everyone over but it always seems stressful. I always use my granny’s…
