A lot has happened since the last time I posted something here. This year my youngest child graduated from High School. We did so many things differently with her than we did with her brothers. There is 6 years difference between her and he next brother. Since she was the only child left at home, it gave us time to concentrate on helping her achieve her goals and achieve she did!
So now I am officially an "empty nester". It is a new beginning for me, as I try to figure out how I want to spend my time and what I want to do with the rest of my life. I've been playing a lot since my daughter graduated in June. Kind of an adult celebration of freedom. With Fall on it's way, I'm having pangs of needing to be creative. Money is so tight for me right now and even though I inherited my daughter's "newer" laptop, I am still lacking a good printer/scanner so make my cards easier to make and more professional looking. Martha Stewart is running a contest for entrepreneur to win $10k to help jump start a business. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm feeling almost...well, normal. I've been doing more and more and more things and taking a few chances. This weekend I got a second chance with someone that I treated poorly while I wasn't feeling well. A few hours of putting the past aside. I feel truly blessed by the gift of a couple of hours that I got. Think of the people in your life that are gifts. Their face would be awesome on a Heartifacts Card. Share the love....I love you!!!

I love to dance. I love to dance almost as much as I love to make cards. I love to dance because I feel the music and I can express how it makes me feel with my movements. For me making a card is sometimes like writing a love song or poem. I love to make cards because even though I seem to be quite a talkative individual, there are some things I have a hard time expressing....like how I feel about people. That's the reason I make cards. Those deep feelings, especially those of love, are the hardest for me to express. I make excuses for why I can't express love and I've hurt some special people, alienated others and broken my own heart more times than I can count. This last time, is the time I regret the most. As as in many artist's lives, even with great success with our craft, the deep feelings never find their way out, never to be heard.
Do you sometimes find it hard to find the words to express how you feel? Do you know someone who might be lonely or sad today? Don't let this moment pass to brighten up someone's day with a Heartifacts Card. (805)296-8671.
