I belong to a great group on Yahoo, "Art For The Creative Mind". There are such fun challenges that I just cannot resist. I did over-commit myself recently and had to get all hands on deck to help me meet deadlines, but it was still fun. We have a sassy woman as our leader of this group and she continually comes up with many great swaps for us to participate in. The torso tag was to be a Halloween theme and we needed to create two tags for our partner. I was really pleased with my tags and my partner was too. Yay!
My second favorite torso tag front . . .
They were fun to make.

In my neighborhood, there are many Gardenia bushes. I love the smell of Gardenias and I love walking past these bushes and smelling their sweet aroma. On Friday I noticed yellow "caution" tape surrounding one of the bushes. Upon closer inspection, this is what I found.
What's that? You can't really make out what I'm trying to show you. Here, let me give you a closer look . . .
Or, how about this . . .
When I was a little girl, my next door neighbor used to raise bees. He would look like a martian in his beekeeping garb. I remember getting my share of bee stings as a little girl. All the neighborhood kids did. We learned to stay away when the bees were being tended to. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this, though. Definitely a unique photo opportunity that I had to share. Amazing.

Rachel came home with school pictures. We are pleased with the way they turned out. She selected the purple background. I like the way it looks.

I was pleasantly surprised last Friday with this pretty flower arrangement.

A little over two years ago, I posted about my sister moving right next door to me. It has been an amazing time having my baby sister so close. We shared many dinners together with our children. She talked me into joining the gym. We enjoyed many moments at the glorious beach talking as when we were children sharing our hopes and dreams. But life happens and things change and what we once thought could be so special, so righteous, so endless, actually does come to a close.
