I’m back – Je suis de retour

Hello my dear friends! Yes, I am back from my little blog break. The last couple of weeks have been busy and oddly enough, I did not create many things. Actually, that’s a lie. I did my Index cards and I worked on some things for my students but nothing else. The cards will be posted on Monday but I don’t have photos of the other things. Now that work is over for 2 months, though, I will hopefully have time to do more art. I haven’t played in my art journals in months and I really miss it! My mind is bursting with ideas and my fingers are itching to get busy and get dirty!

Yesterday, I saw this lovely rainbow while talking on the phone with my mother (she is officially retired as of yesterday evening!) And later on, I received a sweet email from a dear friend. What a beautiful way to end a great day and to start a fun-filled summer vacation…  What made you smile yesterday?

Bonjour chères amies (chers amis!) Et oui, je suis de retour de ma petite pause de blogue. Les deux dernières semaines ont été bien remplies et assez étrangement, je n’ai pas créé beaucoup de choses. En fait, c’est un mensonge. J’ai fait mes cartes Index et j’ai travaillé sur des choses pour mes élèves mais rien d’autre. Les cartes seront affichées lundi prochain mais je n’ai pas de photos des autres choses. Maintenant que le travail est terminé pour 2 mois, j’espère avoir le temps de créer plus d’art. Je n’ai pas joué dans mes journaux artistiques depuis des mois et ça me manque! J’ai la tête remplie d’idées et mes doigts ont hâte d’être occupés et de se salir!

Hier, j’ai vu ce magnifique arc-en-ciel pendant que je parlais au téléphone avec ma mère (elle est officiellement retraitée depuis hier soir!) Et plus tard, j’ai reçu un courriel sympathique d’une bonne amie. Quelle belle façon de terminer une bonne journée et de commencer des vacances estivales amusantes… Qu’est-ce qui vous a fait sourire hier?

Bonne St-Jean-Baptiste à mes lecteurs et lectrices du Québec!!!

    And congratulations to your mother!

    The hug between a husband and wife who have six small children under the age of nine – the smiles on their faces give truth to the reason for so many little ones.

    A rainbow always makes me smile. I am feeling an itchy feeling too – it has been too long since I just played and lost myself in painting and creating. Hopefully there will be more time this next week.
    Enjoy your vacation !Happy Summer!
