{Texture Tuesday} - Waterfront Give Away 

quote by Kobi Yamada - textured with Waterfront 1

Dear friends,

Welcome to another Free & Easy Texture Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by....and sharing your beautiful textured art!

I've decided to continue the Free & Easy TT theme for a while longer...... Still keeping it simple.

I'm so grateful you all continue to pop by and link up your beautiful textured photos...... THANK YOU. 


Remember the Waterfront Collection? that I was hoping to release last Friday.....Ugh.....

Like I mentioned, it's complete.... I'm afraid there's been a slight delay on the release..... But it will happen..... 'smile'.....

Keep reading for a chance to be the first to receive the new collection.....


In the meantime.....How 'bout 2 New Freebies?

Texture Lovin' Listers.... watch your email later today for the download link.

Not on the list? Simply sign up here....and start receiving freebies right away.


Give Away

The give away I originally had planned......will have to wait for another day.... I ran out of light to photograph the mystery item..... I haven't forgotten.... It's just so lovely......

In the meantime..... like I said... the Waterfront Collection is complete.... but the shoppe page isn't quite ready..... 

So how 'bout a chance to be the first owner of the new Collection? To enter.... please leave a comment below.... and Double your chances by linking up a TT image.

I will announce the winner on Thursday..... 

Good luck!!

Latest on John

Just a quick little update....  

My desk is set up in the bedroom... about 3 feet away from John's sleepy head.... So I best call it a night.....

John's struggling with nasty nausea and a lack of appetite.. side effects from the transplant.... But he's taking one day at a time..... We go back and forth to the hospital every other day..... Some days he's there for most of the day....other days it's shorter.... 

He's hanging in there..... dreaming of better days ahead..... 

As always... thank you for your sweet notes of encouragement.... We are so grateful.


Let's get this TT started.....

with gratitude.....always....

Not much worse than being sick at the stomach to make you feel bad, so sorry for John. I know this isn't a good time for him. I hope this will pass soon. Hope this is a better week.

Yes, better days ahead. Illness is so hard. One foot in front of the other. Someone said that to me yesterday when I wanted to give up. Blessings, and the WF collection is beautiful.

What a lovely pink blossom! So delicate and soft. I so admire you and John's strength during this challenging time. And to share your faith, fears and dreams really gives others who are struggling hope for better days as well. Blessings to you and your family for more wonderful memories to make when he's healed.

Try ginger gum. It helped me with seasick nausea. Seemed to work a little better than ginger ale and my weight could not afford the luxury of ginersnaps. I like them way too much. Sending healing thoughts your way.

These sound like very tough days but this too shall pass. Having been through similar battles, with two close family members, my heart goes out to both you and John and I wish you strength during this period and a rapid transit to better times on the other side of this recovery from the transplant.
