PCW/CWC Tuesday Challenge - Texture Sept. 18th


Oh was excited about this
Textures I love to feel dimensions
rough, smooth, highs and lows on
a flat object
texture gives your eyes
a natural stimulation to want know
what is next.

I recycled an industrial toilet roll core
It is the perfect holder
for wine or a candle
cover the bottom and it can become a pen holder
sky is the limit
My co-workers knows better than to throw
these babies away lol

Think everyone in my family
 will get this as a gift for Thanksgiving.

CWC/PCW - Color Combo September 4th

Memorial Day is an American federal holiday observed annually on the last Monday of May.[1] Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

This past weekend I have shared moments of joy and sadness

I take the time to look into the eyes of my three children and tell them
I love them very much regardless of what they do
Remind them daily that they should
lean on each other
be of encouragement to each other
to love and comfort each other
be supportive of each other
make time for each other
communicate with each other
Try not to get angry at each other
Try not to point fingers at each other
Try to resolve problems …. TOGETHER!

An old friend
died at a very young age of cancer Monday
leaving a husband and daughter

Another friend lost her mother Monday
and her sister just had another stroke
and is back in the hospital

As an only child I THURST for family closeness
I appreciating my husband, my children, my family,
my close friends, my cyber friends

I created this colorful  card
sending my support and condolences
those who served our country
those that have passed
those that are going through
