Fat Joey

I just received a Paula Best Christmas craft stamp ordered from Jill Holland of Fat Joey Knitwear.  I love the stamp but really love the sentiment written in the thank you card.  "A portion from each sale goes directly to charity in the honor of the late, Great Fat Joey".  Fat Joey must have been a very loved kitty!

Switzerland and Italy

Just back from my first trip to Europe - so exciting! My daughter Paige, her boyfriend Parris and I joined my husband Storm in Switzerland.  Storm was on a 3 week cycling tour and we were lucky to join him for the last week of the tour then the 4 of us traveled on to Italy.  After working non-stop for 5 days on my photo journal, it's almost complete.

Gruyeres, Switzerland - I was able to watercolor one tiny piece, my only art finished on the trip
Solothurn, Switzerland - a beautiful town on the Aare River, right outside our hotel room
Florence, Italy - we were so lucky to be able to rent an apartment from neighbors in San Diego
Pienza, Italy - a quiet village in the Tuscany area
Rome, Italy - a whirlwind tour of ancient ruins before our journey home
I hope you enjoy looking at a few of the pages from my journal - it was a fantastic vacation!
