Yippee! I feel like putting on one of my favorite CDs—Handel’s HALLELUJAH Chorus! Brian just sent me an email (I noticed it arrived in my IN Box after 6 pm so that means it was after midnight in Munich when he sent it!)—my Cartabella website just went live! He must have worked on it all day today and now it is officially launched into cyberspace!

Soooo, now, back down to earth. I get to learn how to do The Next Steps, figuring out how to organize and update the pages. It’ll be so much fun to write descriptions and comments as I re-visit my old and recent artworks. And motivating to execute and post some new artwork, as well as some new pages. My mind’s whirling. Thinking about my art quilts, collages, an unfinished altered book (like a never-ending story), scrapbooks, recipe notebooks and so on.

Kinda like the ole saying, “Make new friends but keep the old . . . !” I’m a wealthy woman. I have lots of gold and silver because I have a treasure chest brimming with friends and a collage style home-studio bursting with creativity.

This has been a very good day. Thanks to Brian’s productive creativity. And likewise thanks to his dad’s productive work—Dan finished painting the exterior side of our house which faces the foot path to the pond and pool.

I’ll unwind by making a cup of Earl Grey and reviewing my notes in prep for our book group meeting tomorrow morning (The Book Thief).
