4 Days of Rest & Creativeness

OK while I wanted to post two pics of what I have been up to this weekend, alas I cannot because of dumb computer problems. This pic is just some doodles I have been messing with. Remember the orange monkey, cause he may be seen again.

I can tell you that I did actually get some rest these 4 days, though.

Thanxgiving was good being that we stayed home and didn't venture out because the husband was sick with a cold and cough. I made spaghetti, worked on my art journal, watched a few Ustreams and we were good.

On Friday, I caught up with some work email and worked in my journal some more. I bought gold and silver leafing paint pens and deli paper and did some backgrounds with them. You take the gold or silver pen and make a puddle of paint on the deli paper and blow it with the heat gun and it splatters around and looks very cool. And if my dumb computer would not be a jerk, I would share the pic I took of that back ground. I got the idea from Roc on her blog, She and her friend Terri make some great videos.

Last night I went to the Hand Born craft fair downtown and only spent 45.00, not too bad. I won't say what I bought cause one thing is a special gift for a special friend, but I met some great folks as always, and it didn't rain, Yeaaaa!

As a family we had a very bad tragedy. On Friday, my BIL fell about 100 feet down concrete steps and an embankment at his lake house. He broke his back in 3 places. He had to be air lifted to 2 hospitals before they could do surgery. Today they told him he had a year to get back to walking and if he could not by then, he would probably never walk again completely. Unfortunately, his age, (71) is against him. Please pray for a miracle for him. He had polio when he was a kid and he has no upper body strength for crutches, walkers, etc. My SIL is a very strong lady and she is determined that he will walk and she will make him believe he will.

That is about all of the news from my side of the universe. Hope everyone had a great Thanxgiving and got to be creative this weekend.

I love your faces. I love the quote with the faces. What was the background page? It looks like an elementary school book. I love your art, my friend. I will miss you. Hurry up and take a vacation so you can visit me.

I do love your orange monkey...
I hope that your BIL has good news out of his accident. That sounds really horrible.
