New Banner

My daughter came up with this new banner for my Etsy shop.
I had been working on one for months, finally I gave up. 
She had it done in ten minutes...what is wrong with this picture?
She was trying to show me how she did it and was ever so patient teaching me.
But in the end I told her to do what she wanted.
Can I be taught?
She made it look so easy.
I thought at this age I would be dealing out loads of advise and would know a whole lot more then I do.
I guess she can teach me somethings and hopefully I will be able to teach her somethings.
The balance on the internet is totally uneven!
I am hoping to learn......
Wishing you all a learning curve type of day!

Happy Pioneer Day!

Many of my ancestors came across the plains and settled in Utah looking for religious freedom.
I am grateful to them and the hardships they endured looking for freedom.
I am also thankful I did not have to do this...I love air conditioning!
Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Time is one of those things were if something bad is happening you cannot get to a good place fast enough and time seems to drag.
Time also goes so fast when things are going well or you are having fun.
Time seems to be an allusive thing for me.
One minute you have your time mapped out and in an instant of a blink you do not know where the time went!
Any one ever feel this way?
I remember as a kid not being able to wait to go swimming in the 7th grade as part of the gym requirement.
Wishing it would come faster--being in 5th grade and all.
I remember saying this to my dad who replied, "Don't wish your life away."
Being in the art business I have to think ahead so at this time I am painting Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I am trying to enjoy the heat of the summer and the chaos summer brings,
but that allusive time keeps speeding by!
I am hoping your time is not getting away from you as fast as it is for me!
Enjoy your day,
