You can dance if you want to

 I have to share a bit . . . It's been a while. I've been a little busy and not here as much, but it's because lots of good things are going on. Yesterday was my birthday and my mom got me the greatest card.

I just laughed!! It so sums up all the support my mom and dad have given me artistically over the years. They used to share driving me to many, many dance classes for years! The other day I told my mom the only exercise I did that day was "dance around in my studio" as a break from writing lessons. She smiled, and now I know why!

I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. Steven took me to the Warm Mineral Springs in North Port and to the Historic Spanish Point in Osprey, Florida. Both places were interesting and fun and it was great to go on a "date" with my husband! I created a photo collage yesterday and uploaded it to blipfoto, my daily photo journal -click there to see it. Below are a few more favorite photos of the day.

Warm Mineral Springs
I am sure this looks excellent for those of you battling snow & cold!

The water is salty! It's very easy to float & relax in.

we enjoyed!!

Thanks for your visits and comments! I am wrapping up my Vintage Note card swap at the end of this week, so check the blog for some wonderful eye candy. I received a beautiful package from Sharon Walworth today which I should get uploaded tomorrow and there are a few more still coming in!

Have a creative day!

  4. What a beautiful day you had with your sweet Steven, you're so lucky having that gorgeous weather.

    The card your Mum gave you is so sweet.

  6. It looks like you had a wonderful, happy birthday, Lenna, and so many beautiful places to visit too!
    And such a really appropriate card your mother managed to find for you!!

  7. Happy belated birthdy Lenna. I love the card you mother gave you. I used to be a ballerina when I was about that age. Isn't it wonderful to dance around your studio and remember all the fun from your childhood and then be able to go out and be spoiled by your husband. Many wonderful wishes for you for this year.

  8. Thank you all!
    yes, I am pretty spoiled. ;^ ) My philosophy is to try to really appreciate all the good things in my life as a way to strengthen me up for any hard times that we all have. You know, "accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative. . ."
    sending love,
    in appreciation for your kind wishes-

  9. Happy belated birthday Lenna! What a glorious day you had. I love the card your mom gave you...have fun dancing!

  11. Hello, this is my first visit to your blog.I'm always looking out for new art journal round robins I can get involved with.Most people do swaps,me too.Years ago I heard about a round robin where at the end you each had the same pages-the same book.Do you know anyone who does that?I think it would be lovely for women in the same family.Please drop by any time if you like.

  12. Happy belated birthday, Lenna! I'm sorry I missed it! I guess I've been preoccupied with this cool online quilt book workshop :)
    I'm glad you had a relaxing day with your hubby! Hugs, Terri
