You Are All So Caring!

Thank you all for the sweet comments.
This is a tough time in our lives and your comments
mean more than you'll ever know.
I feel your warmth from Australia, Kuwait City,
the UK, the Netherlands, Canada, and the US.
Boyd sleeps off and on all day and very little at night.
He gets an IV of antibiotics twice a day at home.
He seems to have perked up today and has
been watching some TV.
I'll know he's on the mend when I see him
do his New York Times Crossword puzzle.
7 weeks to go.
My daughter Wendy and husband Darin sent him
this great edible arrangement,
The fruit was all really tasty!!
Thanks guys!
I missed the last 2 weeks of the Photoshop class I was
taking but have caught up when Boyd is sleeping.
I have learned so, so much!
There is one more Photoshop class that I can take from
Jessica Sprague in March and I will definitely take it.
I made this layout tonight as I watched the Academy
Awards. It was my first try at extracting a figure from
a photo. I noticed that I have a piece of my arm missing.
I've actually done a lot of layouts but I don't have the
supply lists for all of them and therefore shouldn't
really put them on my blog. Not a law... a courtesy.
All of the layouts I'm creating are with old photos from my
growing years for my girls, so they will know all
about their mom's life.
Supplies: Paper, Green dot by Jeanelle Page, "Kidden Around" add on; Bird House,
bzb designs, "Maddie's Garden"; Flowers, grass, yellow butterfly, sun, by Dita B,
"Spring Time Elements"; Small blue and orange flowers, large green flower, blue
butterfly by Sara Ellis collab. dje "Spring it On"; Ladybugs, bitty blue flowers by
JM's "French Country" for Little Dreamer Designs.
Thank you again. You are all very important to me!
Keep the people in Australia in your thoughts and prayers.
The fires have done such damage to so many.

Lovely to see you posting again and glad that Boyd is slowly making a recovery. Keeping you both still in our prayers and hope that Boyd continues back to full health. That fruit basket looks fantastic!

So glad to hear from you--I have been worried. Sounds like the slow road to recovery is underway, that's wonderful. Love your scrapbook page. And that gorgeous fruit arrangement! Take care.

I will continue to keep Boyd in my thoughts and prayers, but am glad to hear that progress is being made.

As usual, your journal pages are a delight. One of these days, I'll break down and purchase a copy of PhotoShop as you inspire me with what you're learning with it.

Oh Joni....I am so relieved to hear from you , I have been checking and checking hoping for an update on Boyd. I am glad the crosswords are out again. Great extraction Joni! And first one! There will be no holding you back now. Big (((HUGS))) to you and Boyd. And thanks for the Australia prayers, the trauma and heartache has all just been too much.

Thanks for the update, Joni. I've been thinking and praying -- and watching.

You're getting to be quite the digi scrapper! I'm so proud of you!!!

I was just catching up on back blog reading and learned of Boyd's recent hospitalization and medical emergency. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers as Boyd continues his recovery. Take care of yourself, too!

Good to hear from you Yummers. Boyd will be doing crosswords like never before with you nursing him! The Sprout has 6 teeth now and is just about crawling...ahhhh! We are off to Phoenix and Houston with Daddy this month and trying to re-do the office and order cupboards for my studio. Remember to take care of yourself too! xox Sassy and Sprout

I'm lighting a candle for Boyd and saying a prayer for you both. I am glad you are getting in some practice time for your class. I love your site and miss your daily creative posts. Praying all gets back to normal and soon.
God Speed,
