Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

T. G. I. F.

T.G.I.F. doesn't matter that much to me
since I've been retired. In fact, most of the time
I don't even know what day it is.
I just get lost in the pleasures of each day.
But, Happy T.G.I.F to all that need one.

Remember this?

Now it is this...

"I sliced, I diced, I arranged, I re-arranged....again and again and again. Went back to the tutorial. Re-arranged again but used pop dots between layers this time. It's now starting to come together. It still needs something. Edged with silver metallic marker. It still needs more. I took a couple of layers off and added silver sparkly thread. Ahhhh, we're getting there. It is looking sort of Americana to me so I grab my small star punch and punch a few stars. The center star is layered with a tiny square of foam tape and the others are just glued in place. My little bit of "Americana" is finally finished."

That is an excerpt from the email that I sent to Charlotte at ggdesigns.
And, the above is what I sent to her for her challenge. I was determined
to do 2 projects using this technique but using the tiles was really
giving me problems. Then I had a thought "this looks Americana to me".
From then on it was clear sailing because I now had
a creative path to follow.. My folk artish Americana project is finished.
