Virtual Coffee Tuesday - Hello again...

I've been trying to create a VC logo with this image... and I've made it, but I can't upload it here!! *ggrrrr* I so wish I were more techo-savvy...

But, I've invited you here to have a coffee and a catch-up, not to hear me moan...

So, how are you?
How has the past week been?
Seven days just evaporate, don't they??

Thankfully, it's been a largely good week energy-wise, so I've got a lot done! I've finished all five of my postcards for the IA Postcard Swap...


I tried to use all different media - there's collage, watercolour, acrylics - but I really like drawing, so there's two drawings :)

Here's the back of the envelopes...


... and they're now winging their way to the US, South Africa and the Netherlands!
I will show any of the cards I receive in the new few weeks.

This is my first art swap since the stroke - can you believe tomorrow is the fifth anniversary???? - so I'm a tad nervous about the finished quality of my efforts, but I have enjoyed making them, which is the whole point, I know :)

Tomorrow is not only 5 years to the day that my life turned upside down in an instant, but I go for laser surgery to cauterize a bleed in my left eye... I had it done 3 years ago, so I know what to expect - which is both a good and a bad thing... It doesn't hurt at the time, but your feel like your eye's swelling in your head for a few hours after, which is a not pleasant...

So, if you can spare a thought, I'd really appreciate it :)

Apparently today is the Feast of Lady Julian of Norwich. She is one of my favourite medieval mystics, and I wear a bangle with her words 'All shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well'...


Sometimes that is all we can do... believe and hope that this is the case...

So I hope however your week has been, you're able to find glimmerings of beauty, hope and inspiration to carry you through the next week...


With love xxx

There is always hope. Sometimes it doesn't seem like it but it's there, tucked away in a little corner waiting to be noticed. Good luck with your eye thingy, it doesn't sound pleasant!
Your artwork is lovely, keep anjoying it. I can't draw so I express my art in other ways; photos and jewellery making x
