Life...



Karen's stencil from our "art camp" reflects my feelings right now. We've been in upheaval around here since my father-in-law went into the hospital the day before Mother's Day. We were very afraid that we were going to lose him and are so very joyful that he rallied through. We are also very grateful for my DH's step family that have been by our side through it all. We ended up having to move my FIL and his wife to assisted living over the Memorial Day weekend along with our stepbrothers' mother-in-law (by coincidence).
Needless to say we have been quite busy. The Lord does work in mysterious ways though .....
My DH was off work for 2 weeks and my hours have been cut for the summer, which in turn gave us the time we needed to devote to getting them moved, settled and to be able to spend a lot of time with them during this transition. We continue to pray that my FIL will respond to continued therapy and get stronger and healthier.

I hope to get back to keeping up my blog on a more regular basis, we'll see how that goes... in the meantime...... here are the last few pictures from our Saturday "art camp" .....


This was a piece that Marti did using Shiva paintstiks and textured rubbing plates..... I'd like to do more of this.

This is a piece Karen painted using watered down fabric paints. It will be a background for future playing. I also painted a background....


Here is my palette plate and the table after our day of "art camp"




Looks a bit different from the start....
