Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

Banner Month - week 5:

This week: the "M" pennant
and
The COMPLETED Banners!
(Are you as excited as I am?)

The optional directive for this Week 5
Incorporate either a clock or a key into your design.

And now.........


My completed DREAM Banner!

I can hardly wait to see all of yours! Anticipation has been building since Week 1!

I really hope everyone had as much fun with this challenge as I did! I am truly honored that all of you played along. Based on your comments and emails in response to the hints I've dropped, I think we should do it again! Let's take a couple of weeks off and begin a SPRING banner on Wednesday, February 20.

I hope to see all of the January participants return. We would also love to encourage some new players to join us!

4 x 4 Friday - Open Theme

CHAIRS

I like chairs, so that is my theme. Actually, my theme started out as I-have-to-make-something-now. Still incarcerated staying at
Ronald McDonald House, I had to resort to whatever I had on hand. That included a pair of scissors, a glue stick, and a couple of old magazines. Come to think of it, that is much the way I started my first altered book over 5 years ago. Nothing fancy, just juxtaposing pleasing pictures and phrases, letting serendipity have her way.
More 4 x 4 contributors here.

Just to update..........

**Updated 1/18/08** Alan was dismissed to Ronald McDonald House today as we must stay close to the hospital since he will be closely monitored in frequent lab and clinic visits until at least the first of February.

My grandson is still in ICU, recovering from a liver transplant on Dec.30. He is struggling with pneumonia and some infection.

My husband and I are still at the hospital with Alan and his parents.

Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes in your comments.

I miss creating for the challenges--hope to be back soon, because that will mean Alan is better!

I will be here for Banner Month--I'm all set to post it on Wednesday. See you then! In the meantime, I'll be enjoying all of your beautiful creations! (Thank goodness for ICU wireless--great sanity-saver)
