Oh dear ... at it again ... 4 months since the last time I posted?!

I am a blog slacker.  No doubt about it.  I get worse all the time with lapses in posts.  I've been super busy helping my husband with clerical type work as he has left his business career and has been consulting.  He would like to get back in to the business world, so I've been helping him with resumes, as well.  Each day brings a new and exciting adventure with him at home!  lol!  In the past four months, we've celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary (where does the time go?!) and I've celebrated my 10th year of being cancer free!   Those are two milestones I am very proud of and grateful for.   I do miss making my bears and hope to get back to them on a regular basis, soon.  In the meantime, I have been creating paper art (it doesn't take long to put together a card or shadow box) and it allows me the creative outlet that I so desperately need to keep my sanity!  Here are a few photos of what I've been up to in the past four months.  Once there is a new bear or puppy or bunny to show, I promise I'll post it here first!
The card above was sent to my childhood friend for her 61st Birthday.  I hope she likes it!

The canvas above was placed in a shadow box for my Sister-in-law.  I hope she likes it!

This shadow box was created for my Sister-in-law's friend.  Her friend allowed her to stay in her home for a week here in Arizona and my Sister-in-law wanted a thank you gift with Arizona colors.The shadow box is filled with AZ wildflower colors, a sunshine and a little hummingbird!
The card above was created for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  She suffers from Alzheimer's and I thought the bright colors would cheer her.  I think my own Mom would have loved the flowers, too!
I hope you have a beautiful weekend filled with all the joys that God has for you.
Lots of hugs & blessings, Janice
