One year after her diagnosis and 6 months after her surgery, my daughter in law's blood work came back CANCER FREE! I can't tell you what a relief that is to hear.
Life sure does move fast the older I get. Seems days are never long enough to complete what I would like and I am a procrastinator as well, so most days I am reeling not knowing which way to turn.
I am making art at both my studio table and my dining room table when needed as another grandson has taken residence in the studio for a while. I used to paint at night. I am usually most relaxed and inspired at night, but that's hard to do in someone else's temporary bedroom.
I completed two more canvasses over the last couple months.

For about 6 months, I have been consumed with watching videos of a 'new to me' type of art. I am saving my pennies for some basic supplies and I can't wait to try it. More info to come when I try it and see if I am a success or failure ( meaning, whether I enjoy it or not).
In preparation for the holidays, I painted a few Christmas cards:
Baked some cookies:
Used recycled packing paper to wrap gifts and made the tags out of the same... one gift was in an envelope I made out of a piece of scrapbook paper:
On Friday, we had our Southeast Vilello Family Christmas.
I am blessed to live closer to my kids now.
