So what have you done lately

all to often I get asked this and tend to dismiss my day, but now I am embracing my day, my life.
I went to the funeral of my mate Lorraine's dad last Friday. I have to see it was so moving and such a wonderful send off for her dad. Times like that make you take stock and be Thankful, and I am Thankful.
I had been putting off going for a mammogram, I was terrified of the thought of it, so I ignored every letter that dropped on the mat...but I did it, on Monday I went and had it done - just have to wait for the results now, but at least I did it.
I received some wonderful Betty Boop goodies in the post, put the biggest smile on my face I can tell you. Thank you Linda (aka Mom) I used 2 of the items to create a new blog banner xxx

I created this canvas today 8x8. Acrylic paint and decorated with swarovski crystals... enjoyed seeing her develop on the canvas, and now she is hanging on the wall in my room.


Family are arriving home now, so dinner to serve, till next time THANKS for dropping by big hugs and embrace life xxxx

Hi Dawn,

I love reading your blog - not just for your lovely drawings, but your style of writing. I feel like you are "talking" to me.

Now that you've had one, it will be easier to have another mammogram. Thanks for reminding me that it's time for ME to go too!

I love these paintings of women that you do! Such lovely dreamy faces!
