HAPPY BIRTHDAY...

To me!!!

Holy Canoli ~ 60?!?!?!

Really?

I don't know what 60 is supposed to feel like, but I sure don't feel 60!

A NEW PRINTER'S TRAY

I had ordered some KaiserCraft "Beach Shack" papers and embellies. Once they came, I sat down to make some cards... I got 3 made, and then, as author Stephen King would say, "My muses shat upon my head"!
I no longer wanted to make cards, but instead, some kind of display piece! I went through my stash, and came up with a very old 7Gypsies printers tray. I knew immediately that I wanted something simple yet inspiring.
With a sea sponge, I dabbled some sand and grey paint around the tray edges, then got to work gluing in the papers and a few 'live' embellies.
It turned out just the way I had envisioned it ~ and in only a few days!!
Nota Bene ~ the paper in the middle of the porthole {right center} is actually bright white reflective paper that throws a rainbow when tilted.



As always, click to biggify ~
And learn to listen to your inner voices/muses! You never know where they will lead you. I had never EVEN dreamed of doing a tray with this line, but I am SO glad I did!

THE SOFT RAIN ~

We've had the most perfect day today ~ the kind of day I dream about! Woke up to soft grey skies, and lovely gentle rains. Had no particular plans. Lounged about with the Sunday paper and my beloved 'Jumbles' I thought about getting lost into a great British movie, but then decided to go upstairs and do a wee bit of straightening up in the studio...
The soft rain continued ~
Got a wee bit of straightening up done, and then relaxed into reading some SARK books ~
The soft rain continued ~
Read some more, then enjoyed a bit more substantial downpour, and around 3 PM, the rain finally ended. But our skies stayed a lovely soft grey ~ no glaring sunlight! We are due for more showers later, and I'm looking forward to falling asleep to their sounds.
Dear hubby fixed us a marvelous dinner of mahi-mahi with orange marmalade sauce ~
Now I'm up in the Nest, waiting to see what kind of creative inspiration strikes me. I want to work on something 'small', so we will see what happens!
Wishing you ALL perfect days!

Love a nurse, P.R.N.! {as needed}

To all the brilliant nurses I've had the honor of working with over the years ~

To all the doctors I've dealt with over the years who respected nurses and their input ~

To all the delightful nurses I've met on-line over the years ~

It has been an honor and a privilege to work with and know you.

To Mary & Carole & Marc & Bruce & Cheryl & Lisa & Kerry & Peter & Ofelia & Marina & O.F. & Jo and all the others who taught me so much, and made me laugh ~
