still here...

OK... So I have been MIA for a bit but what can I say... my family comes first and sometimes my life is not my own.  The rest of July is packed and August is impossible... I hope to see myself more in my studio in September.  Anyway... We just got back from a camping trip in the UP (upper peninsula).  I am originally from Michigan so it is fun to take the kids back to see the places I remember as a kid.  Being outside, unplugged and in nature really got my creative juices going.  Colors, textures, negative spaces, random groupings.... aaahhhhh.... I can't wait to get back to work.  Here are some pics... hope they inspire you too.

Ooooh ..... that shell of an old stone building is so cool! My imagination can really get going with that .... oops .....I better stop or those spooky thoughts will keep me from sleeping! HA!

Just got my package but I haven't had the chance to open it. That is next on my list .... YAY!

Hey, when were you at Teq. Falls? If you ever come to the area again, let us know, k? I'd love to get our families together.
