Early morning thoughts.

My son turned 25 yesterday.  Weird to think he is already a quarter of a century old.  I hope that 25 is a turning point for him and he starts really taking his life seriously.  I know he would like to find "the one" and settle down but right now he is not in a good place to attract the best girl.  He has a good heart and is kind but can not manage his money what so ever and is still to into partying (which is probably the reason he has no money in the first place). 

It's just hard as a mother because you want the best for your children and sometime that is more than they even want for themselves.  I woke up this morning with him on my mind and just had to journal some thoughts.  If there can be a magic number, let 25 be it. :)

On another note- my grandson is having his 1st birthday party today (his actual birthday will not be until Wednesday).  1 is always a grand number, it has to be magical. 

Prayers and request for God's blessings for them all, it's the best I can do.

Collaged project

Here is my newest art work.  My friend asked me to make her something, anything, anysize for her grand daughter.  She wanted it to say "I love you to the moon and back".  Her grand daughter is eleven so I thought she would like something sparkly so I created this for her to hang on her wall.

I had purchased this black framed print of fruit at the $1 store.  I put sticky back canvas over the fruit print and began to paint.  The jewels are all vintage peices that have been repurposed here.  The charms are from my collection of odds and ends.

Grandparents Day at the Kansas City Zoo

Colton is almost a year old!  Can you believe it?!
We both loved the polar bear exhibit.  He swam circles and got right up to the glass.  He was adorable.

Me (Grandma) and Colton at the mercat exhibit. 
One of the Elephants.   They did look miserable.  I felt sorry for a lot of the animals.  I don't know how many were ever in the wild but they sure have to miss it now after being in captivity.
