Thawing Out

I haven't posted in a few days. I am up in Maryland with Kali. I didn't bring very much artsy stuff with me, just little bits of bright colors, a few pens, and some colorful backgrounds I made a couple weeks ago.  I have 106 ATCs to make, as well as 25 or so bookmarks, 4 postcards, 2 sets of prestrung tiles to complete (18 tiles total), and 15 other ATCs that I had forgotten about until now. Whoa! I have fallen way behind! It's been freezing and has snowed three times since I've been here. Today started a bit of upward rising in the temps. Yay!!!

I was headed home Wednesday, but Kali was in a traffic accident. So now my days are filled with insurance agents, body shops, medical files, and now car dealerships. The decision was made today to total her car. Not a fun day. So, once again I am in Maryland until we find another car. Posts are probably going to be few and far between for awhile. 

Above is an 11" x 14" colorful background that I tangled here at Kali's. I tried to use a bunch of tangles that I had not used lately. Trying to refresh my memory. I still run into those times when I just stare at the paper and tell myself I can not remember a single tangle that I know. Does that ever stop? Hahahaha! I'm sure it never happens to you :)

Background colors brought to you from Dylusions Ink Sprays and Wink of Stella Zig glittery markers.

  1. Beautiful art--in stark contrast to the scary news of Kali's accident. I hope she heals quickly. Cars are replaceable if not always reparable, but I am sorry that you are having to deal with all of that. Sending hugs from TN!

  2. As I was reading the number on the items you must finish, I found myself singing "and a partridge in a pear tree!" It's a very happy piece that you did complete. However, then I was sorry to read about Kali's accident and hope things are straightening out for you all very soon. Good luck on finishing all on your list.

  3. Thanks for the post...I was starting to go through withdrawal! Hope Kali is okay. She's lucky to have someone special to take care of her!

  4. I am sorry for Kali, for the nice car..
    . I hope she is ok... Kisses and hug and pray

  5. Oh goodness Alice - not again. I do hope that Kali recovers quickly & you take care of yourself as well.
    Prayerfully & much love to you both
