ALREADY...this year is slipping...

thru our fingers...

...thus you have my first post of 2009...goodness it is late late late...

Kevin left today...for the first leg of his Iraq journey...last message he texted was about an hour ago..that he was passing thru kentucky..(they are heading to florida by bus...)

he will be coming home in feb...for about a week...then off to texas and then straight to iraq...

i did get a bit of art done....

this is the cover to a book...that was sent as a get well card...



...and here is a necklace i made..using fresh water pearls and a dichronic cross and vintage bright pink crystals...





Maxx got his hair cut today...and i have pictures to share..but need to download them...

tommorrow he turns TWO!!!!! having a family party here...chili and cake..(maddy made a banana cake..)

seems such a short time ago that he was born!!!! (heck the same with maddy!!!)

time DOES fly!

I got my art table totally cleaned and organized...!!!! MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT! and now this week they are forcasting way below zero temps...so go figure i won't be working down there..as it is unheated...positive note...it WILL STAY CLEAN AND ORGANIZED!

hugz til tomorrow!
