Summer's challenge...

2011 marks the 50th anniversary of CCNS. A challenge booklet has been created and I am definitely in the game! Obtaining the answers requires lots of walking, reading and visits to various locations. Paul, Garett and Joe joined me on this hike at Bearberry Hill in Truro recently...beautiful scenery enjoyed and many questions answered.

Wine tasting...

During a recent visit from my dear friends Lorna and Judy, we enjoyed the "aroma and bouquet" of a wine-tasting session at Truro Vineyards. Great fun and yet another glass for my collection!

The gang's all here....

The Nest is always filled for the Fourth of July holiday...and here we all are, including the pups (though they weren't cooperating with the photographer very well). I present my wonderful family, left to right....Chris & Tam, Tracy & Matt, Garett, Arthur & me, Jillian & Drew.

Beautiful results from messy beginnings...

A recent class at Colorful Creations in Hyannis led to the creation of these three cards. Using an "elegant mess" technique, we transformed two sheets of paper, watercolor and rice, using a variety of inks and paints. Shapes were cut from each piece and arranged on blank white cards ... such surprising results from what really was "a mess!"
