~ Back into business! ~

Hello Dear friends,

Before anything, I want to say a big THANK YOU for all of you who's been leaving me comments even though knowing I'm absent. I really appreciate all of them and now that I'm back, I'll do my best to catch up with all of you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Well, where should I start?
The Summer was wonderful. No rush for anything, just enjoying the kids, going to the Lakes around, being more outdoors then ever!
Then came Back to School, where all of my kids were challenging a new school for them. Now, they are all settle and life goes on smoothly here.
But, yes, I did lots of projects during the summer as well!!! I had also to do something for myself, and as I love summer I also had the chance to paint in the garage with the door open, so I could feel the warm wind coming inside and see the gorgeous blue sky. Just perfect, hum?
Two weeks ago I also was part of a Art Show in the city where many artists from all kind were showing their work. It was a very interesting experience for me, since I still don't call myself "Artist" at all. But anyway, most of the friends I invited came over (some couldn't attend) and it was so nice to see them there, supporting my work and also it was lovely to meet new people.
I had to rush to prepare a portfolio for the exhibition but it turned out really well.
Now I'll show you all the pieces I did and pictures from the event. Have fun looking at them!

Hope everybody is doing fine and having lots of fun in your lives!
I'll come soon again with a new post!

Here are some pieces I did during Summer. I hope you guys like it!

 That's a nice friend of mine and Me!

Thanks all for stopping by and until next time!
Have a lovely week,
Li :-)

Dearest Li,

You've been quite active during summer; wow!
Back into business is exactly what I'm trying to do right now. HAVE to, my husband is on the mend from his quadruple bypass surgery and I am doing far better than the end of last year, health wise. That resulted into being totally paralyzed in January so for now I have to give it my very best for the Christmas season. It is knocking at our doors; too soon after summer...

Sunny greetings from Georgia,

Welcome back have been missed. Sometimes I wonder where people go but then am just thankful that their fragrance blew by me even if it was for a short time. But now you've blown back! It is good to take a break isn't it? Good to just be with your family. I am always trying to take a break, but am unable to. tee hee...blogging is a beauty retreat for me.
