I'm Back!!!!

Wow - it feels as if I have finally stepped out of the fog.  For those of you who don't know (and may not care) I have been going to school for the last year and also working on my teacher certification for the last three months.  Well I am more than happy to say that I AM THROUGH!!!!!!  Finally after more years than I care to admit, I have graduated from college.  I am also through with my certification exams so now all I need is a job!

This weekend was the first in a very long time that I didn't have to study and I enjoyed it immensely.  I cleaned and organized my bedroom and my art loft (which still needs a name - any suggestions).  During this mad cleaning dash I enjoyed my pandora radio listening to Pink, Mozart, and the Beatles.  HA!  Don't even try to put me into a category!

I have tons of projects to work on this summer - remember all of that STUFF that I bought on Meschebbie's Magical Mystery Tour?  If not see my earlier posts!

Plans for the summer:

Frame and hang old family photos
Meschebbie's Magical Mystery Tour Scrapbook
Birthday cards for the whole year
Find something creative to do with all of my antique lace and linens
Paint my kitchen cabinets
Paint my un-named art loft
Find out more history on my house
Redecorate my upstairs bathroom
Teach VBS
Go to youth camp in New Mexico
Visit Mattie

Ok, so you get the idea!  Debbie and I are also wanting to start a business!  Oh, and I also plan to make tons of altered art!

Something I've been thinking about this weekend - Dreams.  Not the kind you have at night.  My dreams are:

To have an effective ministry
To become a mixed media artist
To be a teacher
To write

One final thing - please pray for my dad - he was recently diagnosed with lung cancer.  Miraculously it has not spread.  He will have surgery to remove part of his lung as well as insert a stint and possibly a bypass.  The date is May 25th.  

Thank you and have a great week!
