Happy President's Day!



What a difference a day makes! We had terrible storms roll through - a tornadoes hit just 15 minutes north of us and the wind and rain was unbelieveable. Out with the storm though went my terrible headache that had been around for 4 days. I woke up feeling full of energy and ready to get this house cleaned and ready for my boys to return home - 3 of them anyway. My DH and 2 older boys went to the farm to visit Oma & Opa and hang out with their cousin Dillon. DH went up not feeling so great and brought two sick boys home with him. I also got a call from the lead chaperone on the D.C. trip and asked if she could give my son cough medicine as he was coughing uncontrollably. She was there were about 6 students that weren't feeling so great and were going back to the hotel with a chaperone for a rest after lunch. He called me last night to let me know the medicine helped and they were about to have open mike night. He told me he was going to sing SLOW RIDE. OMgoodness, never thought my boys would be singing 80's rock songs - Lovin' guitar hero and listening to the oldies and so are the boys.




I did manage to be a bit creative this weekend with CLAY.

I painted a slate heart for Barb last week and decided to replicate it with Studio Clay.

Then, when we were at certification we SAW how to create an iris and although I took notes I couldn't understand them. I should have written down everything but was watching, trying to write down the important parts and when I tried to follow the steps I had written it just didn't make sense. So, I went on what I think an iris looks like and came up with this.


Thanks for all the comments, emails and especially prayers for me and this flu. I am feeling better today and so appreciate knowing you were thinking about me!!



Gotta go and take care of my boys and put rooms back together after moving furniture and washing floors.


Have a wonderful week!


Smiles,

Sandy

Hey girl,
glad to hear you are feeling so much better. When I read your blog about the iris I remember that I hadn't sent the pictures that I took of Donna doing the Iris, but I've got to tell you, your Iris is sooooooo......much better. really. and I love the leaf. It is beautiful. Did you add the yellow the same way that she did? and you made the iris leaf my hand, right? It is beautiful. I'm so proud.

Charlie

I didn't realize you had the flu. Take care :)
Your slate heart & clay iris are beautiful! The heart looks really cool with the clay. I wouldn't have thought of doing that.

Get better soon
