I LOVE color and red is the favorite. Since childhood BIG RED BARNS have been a favorite thing. When we started the bathroom redo RED came to the be the color of choice. It is the second favorite room in the house. I have waited four long years to have the old DEEP tub to fill up with hot water and soaking in it. Of course while I am in there my mind is creating or making to do list. There are many of times that is my bed. Of course over the last few weeks the list making have been about getting the house back together. This weekit has been getting the studio togerher. It has been like Christmas I keep finding things that I FORGOT that I had. Well maybe that could be old AGE. Off to bed because tomorrow is going to be a LONG day since the therpy room must be put together before I get to sleep.

Yesterday was a GREAT one. Even tho I started at the office at 6 am and worked for a couple of hours. Then it was off to Stamper's Day Out. This a day of fun with my friends from my stamp club ROTR. We had a wonderful spot to work. The room was large and had wonderful natural light. We had great projects and awesome teachers. I really must say I had a great day hanging out with my friends. I needed the day of creating. It seems like it has been forever to just play for the day. The really great news is that my friend Robyn that just started her own stamp company asked me to be on her design team. She has a really great line of stamps. And I can't wait to start on projects to submit using them. I have been thinking of ways to use her stamps my mind had been racing.

Then it was off to the Depot Harvest Festival. The weather was great and there was a lot to do for fun. The live music was great and just hanging out with friends was fun.

So here is to a GREAT DAY.

PS I got all the furniture ready for the studio today.

Okay here is a look at my new studio! As you can see it is a long way from ready to create in. It will be the last room to be put together. But I think that it should have been the first. As I am beginning to believe that therapy is going to be expense. Since I have not been able to do anything for about 3 months and I am needing to get lost in a project. I am really looking forward to this Saturday as I have a big girl play date with my stamp club all day. Hopefully in about a week I will be able to post the finished room. I have a ton of projects racing thru my head. And just waiting to have the tools and materials unpacked. I have been planining this room for 3 years and been collecting the pieces to do what I want to in it. Since it is the formal living room.(Like I need a formal living room) I have decided to do things in stations and with this way I am going to use some furniture pieces. I do want the room to reflect ME.

Okay keep watch for the unveiling of the new THERAPY ROOM!!

Bitter Sweet

Well, today was one of those bitter sweet days. We got up went out to breakfast with Mark and Susan. Then did the grocery shopping and Sam's thing. Then back home to work on getting the house together. Which is actually starting to look like home again.

Then all of a sudden I hear that familar voice and there was Michael and his friend Brittany. It was so good to see him. As he doesn't come home often. I just wish that someone could tell me how to get use to that sad empty nest feeeling when I see him. I get to wondering if I did things right in his childhood. It is still so hard to believe that he is almost 19 and been away from home for over a year. My heart still aches at times and I feel so emotional about it at times that I get upset with myself. I just feel that I don't know that wonderful guy anymore. I look at him and still see that wonderful little baby in a man's body. Then I hear him talking and it seems like it is a stranger in his body. Okay enough. I just had to get it off my chest. So if any of you wonderfull friends out have any words of wisdom please share. Because as I said it was a bitter sweet moment. The picture above was taken on Mother's Day and I like of us.

I have just finished down loading pictures for the IA trip and the house projects and will share them over the next week.

This is the place for all of you that would like to know what I am up to keep up with it.
