she is free

A 5x7 collage I made for a challenge on ARTchix Studio's facebook page -
my entry for the Challenge of BIRDS, EGGS, NESTS and/or CHARTREUSE!!

I did not win, but I love playing in Helga's challenges, anytime. 
I'm inspired by ARTchix's supplies and have been for years and years!

Tomorrow, I will be more free myself, hmmmmmm.   :  ( 

My boys are heading back to Boston in the very early morning hours. We have been lucky to have both of my sons and their wives/partners here with us for 5 full wonderful days. Nothing like having some youngsters around! They range from 26 to 30 years old. Click on any photo for a larger one.

Dallas on my Dad's old John Deere tractor. It's now at Lucas Boatworks and still used
by my husband. My dad used to tow my boys around in an attached cart when they were small.

Liz, Steve, Tina and Decklin checking out a Lucas Boatworks Boat (handbuilt)

Decklin and Liz climbed inside the boat Dave Lucas is finishing!

we went kayaking on the river : )

Then the kids cooked dinner for us!! I'd say miss Asia looks quite interested : ))

Had to cap off the evening with toasting marshmellows : ))
Decklin, Tina and Dallas

I will miss them . . . . even though our house is small for 6 adults and we needed lots more food in the house!!

Love them all, so glad to spend time together. A wonderful birthday present!! xo


  1. Love the ARTchix piece, Lenna. The green background just makes everything pop. So great to have your family together - nothing like having the kids home for a visit to lift ones spirits. hugs, Donna

  2. The imagination you have...your collage looks gorgeous!
    Hope you had the most wonderful Monday and wishing you a terrific Tuesday!


  3. Great to see your lovely piece again, Lenna! It's stunning. And it looks like you had a wonderful time together. It will feel a bit quiet in the house now that they're gone again!

  4. Oh, love that ATC Lenna. It looks like you had a great visit with the kids. Very nice.


  5. Great artwork for Artchix - I love the zing of that green/yellow!

    You made me smile about needing more food when your boys are around! Looks like you had a wonderful and happy few days together. What a treat.

    Now back to your arting.... :o)


  6. Looks like everyone had a great time! Love the card you made, the bird on body is such a cool combination!

  7. Looks like you and your family had a great time. It is wonderful to have them visit. I have two boys of my own and love the time that I get to spend with them.

    Your ARTchix piece is awesome. Love your work.
