My FIVE children....I now have proof

I have not been online very much this month and I have been pretty uninspired (creatively and blogwise). BUT, today I have something to share and I am feeling a bit inspired! These are my FIVE children (Dan, Elliot, Mike, Jenni and Laura). This is the first time in many years that they have all been together. I took advantage of the event and we took a trip to the mall photographer to have a portrait taken (something I have desired for years!). This is a wonderful way to end the old year and an even better way to begin the new one! I hope all of you have a happy and safe New Year. One of my resolutions for the new year is to break out of this creative block---it's been going on way too long. I am also planning on being more regular with updating my blog. So again, Happy New Year!!! Talk to you soon in 2006!

It is snowing (really hard) and it is very, very cold!!

I just took this photo---it is the view out the sliding glass door in my kitchen (right next to my desk) into the park behind my house. The snow is falling really hard and I feel like hybernating tonight!! Actually, I can't hybernate tonight because I am co-teaching an art class at a group I belong to called Women's Wisdom. I began teaching at the beginning of the summer. I am having fun and enjoying bringing collage, altered art and mixed media to the group.

Here is a picture of my Christmas tree ---a much warmer feel!!!
