Thawing Out


I haven’t posted in a few days. I am up in Maryland with Kali. I didn’t bring very much artsy stuff with me, just little bits of bright colors, a few pens, and some colorful backgrounds I made a couple weeks ago.  I have 106 ATCs to make, as well as 25 or so bookmarks, 4 postcards, 2 sets of prestrung tiles to complete (18 tiles total), and 15 other ATCs that I had forgotten about until now. Whoa! I have fallen way behind! It’s been freezing and has snowed three times since I’ve been here. Today started a bit of upward rising in the temps. Yay!!!

I was headed home Wednesday, but Kali was in a traffic accident. So now my days are filled with insurance agents, body shops, medical files, and now car dealerships. The decision was made today to total her car. Not a fun day. So, once again I am in Maryland until we find another car. Posts are probably going to be few and far between for awhile. 

Above is an 11″ x 14″ colorful background that I tangled here at Kali’s. I tried to use a bunch of tangles that I had not used lately. Trying to refresh my memory. I still run into those times when I just stare at the paper and tell myself I can not remember a single tangle that I know. Does that ever stop? Hahahaha! I’m sure it never happens to you 🙂

Background colors brought to you from Dylusions Ink Sprays and Wink of Stella Zig glittery markers.

  1. Beautiful art–in stark contrast to the scary news of Kali's accident. I hope she heals quickly. Cars are replaceable if not always reparable, but I am sorry that you are having to deal with all of that. Sending hugs from TN!

  2. As I was reading the number on the items you must finish, I found myself singing "and a partridge in a pear tree!" It's a very happy piece that you did complete. However, then I was sorry to read about Kali's accident and hope things are straightening out for you all very soon. Good luck on finishing all on your list.

  3. Oh goodness Alice – not again. I do hope that Kali recovers quickly & you take care of yourself as well.Prayerfully & much love to you bothPaula (PEP)
