A quick hello and a nice surprise!

My week has been insane- again! I spent 2 days visiting my 90 y.o. grandmother bracketed by 2 days of 12 hour drives to get there and home again. I barely spent any time at my hotel and wireless was nonexistent or pathetically slow everywhere else plus I was trying to work in-between visiting time. Anyway, I have been catching up with my family (my in-laws were here visiting and got deserted) and job. No crafting or even blog reading has occurred :(  Hoped to get to do both this weekend but watching the vids for my online class was about it  (I am taking Tim H's class at

But, while I was gone, I got such an awesome surprise from Norma at Lil Honey Bee Studios. She does beautiful layouts and very collagey mixed media pieces. Her art is just beautiful! I'm totally honored that she sent this my way :)  Thank you so much, Norma - you made my day! :)
