It seems like only yesterday...
...that I was chatting with my dear friend Kimber almost every day through email. It's so hard to believe that it's now been a year since she died very suddenly. The postcard above is one of her creations...Kimber loved sending art postcards. The honu was one of her favorites...the image on this postcard is one she carved. When I got out over the weekend, we were in a store & I saw quite a few things with sea turtles on them...I take it as a sign that she's around in spirit...and sending me a message.
Today would have been her birthday. It seemed strange not to send her a fun package of goodies that I had created or gathered for her.
Here's to you, Kimber...I know you're still painting & art journaling somewhere in the great beyond. I miss you.
I've always been an artist...from as far back as I can remember, I loved to create and share my art. My current passions include quilting, altered art, paper arts and making charms for jewelry.
I'm a CA girl at heart, having lived in San Diego & Corona, CA for most of my adult life, but now find myself in NE Ohio & not thrilled with that! You'll hear a LOT of whining about OH here...it's a nasty place to live.
I currently live in the 1954 bungalow that I grew up in with my sweetie & love of my life, Phil, and our very spoiled kitty, Sunny Cat. We miss our dear sweet Sophie Cat, but Sunny has brought new love into our lives. Now we've rescued 3 kittens that were born in our backyard, so Fluffer, Gracie & Peanut are also part of our family...and they're as cute as can be. More cats = more love! We're hanging in here & doing the best we can.
