My painting friend Jim is having surgery to remove a portion of his kidney because of cancer.

A few years ago, he had one kidney completely removed due to cancer. Now it's back - in the only kidney remaining.

He remains positive, because the doctors said they felt sure it was contained to a small area.

All the same, this isn't a fun surgery. It's quite invasive, because they must cut through the abdominal muscles. The cut is pretty big. I saw his other scar. They have to do something similar to him.


I've been thinking about him, because I want to call and find out how things went, but I also don't want to bother them....he might not be "up" to talking. And Bonnie, his wife, might be tired and stressed from worry and tending to him.

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!
