Well, here we go.


Saturday will be our last full day in California. We're almost done packing and we leave Northern California on Saturday morning.  We'll be on the road all day and spend the night in Needles. By Sunday morning we'll leave the great state of California (and I do mean that sincerely) and head to our new home and new life in NM.

It's hard to believe it's already time to go and, at the same time, it's taken a long time to get here.  I've made my peace with the notion that we are moving and, in fact, I'm really looking forward to it. Excited you might even say.  I have plans.... big plans. They involve children, grandchildren, reaching out to family and friends, a new art studio, hiking, biking and more.... My head is spinning just thinking about it.

Needless to say I haven't created much art lately, well, not unless you call lettering "Studio" on packed boxes art. No, I don't either.

Good news, my guy got a job offer in New Mexico on Thursday and he starts October 11th. They are giving us a lot of time to get there and get settled before he starts. The timing couldn't be better. It's such a relief. He's been looking a long time. So I guess it's all meant to be.

It's late, got to pack some more so I'll say goodbye from California.  Talk to you again from New Mexico.  Wish us luck. Waves Bye

New Journal Pages

You can tell when I have visited Teesha Moore’s blog because I add borders around my journal pages.

Day Dream


The week I created this page I was having an obsession with paper flowers. I actually made a few to put on the kitchen table.  I’ll probably leave them in my studio for the new owner to find.

Bloom Where You're Planted

Did I tell you I found the Sharpie poster paint markers at Micheal’s?  Yeah, they come in all sorts of colors and I love them.

Saying our goodbyes to our favorite beach

As you may have read, we are moving to NM soon and in these last few weeks that remain, we are visiting some of the places and restaurants we have loved in Northern California. Saturday, my guy and I went to say our goodbyes to Stinson Beach.  We’ve celebrated our anniversary there a few times and spent many a weekend walking the long stretch of beach over the last 23 years both with and without our daughter and her assorted friends. There were a lot of great memories created there.

Here is my guy looking out at the ocean after a long walk.


My feet in the water. It felt so good.


Do you see where the hill tapers off into the water?  That’s where we started our walk. There’s hardly any one that walks out this far unless they live there. (There are houses to the left of where we were standing.) It was our “3 hour tour” but, alas, we didn’t get stranded on a lovely island.


Here is my tribute to our lovely weekend.
