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

Serene Scene

A few days ago, I had an eye exam and I'm now ready
to buy new frames.  Luckily, my vision has not changed.
I can hardly see the 'E' without my glasses as it is.
My last set of frames came from the Vision Dept in a local Walmart.
I only paid around $18.00 for my current frames and I have
been really pleased with them.  So I want to go back.  We
have a brand new Walmart nearby now.   I waltz in there
with my new Rx....What?.....this Walmart doesn't have a
Vision Dept.  Well, phooey!!!!!

I made this piece for a swap at 
Oriental 4 x 4
I really struggled getting started with this.  My collection of
Oriental style stamps is very limited.  I did find one that
was all symbols.  Perfect.   The focal image decided the
color scheme.   It is adhered using pop dots for a little
extra dimension.  I love my new Tim Holtz washers.  I
got them at a bargain price here.  The wood frame is
a couple of skewers cut to size and stained using Tea Dye
Distress Inks.  I'm having a real love affair with my Distress Inks.
I love them.  Another bargain buy from here.

I think this piece also fits the following challenges.
