Hi, everyone! I've begun a new blog to focus on my new path in life.....I will still be faux finishing, but very little. Teaching is a huge commitment and I intend to give it my all, so any painting I do will be on holidays and over summer break. Miss P Productions, www.misspproductions.blogspot.com, will focus on my art and my family. I'd love to have you come by!
My daughter, Stephanie Scarcella, an opera studies student at The Boston Conservatory, has a paid (well, a tiny amount, anyway) gig performing opera at The Merc in Temecula, California on August 6! I am so proud of her! If you are nearby and want to hear her beautiful mezzo-soprano voice, please give her a hug and tell her you know about her from my blog.....and wish her success with her upcoming graduate degree program! If anyone out there wants to tell me how to load a recording of her singing, I'd love to add one to this post.
We made it through the graduation and celebration without tears! Yes, I did get a little watery eyed a couple of times, but mostly with pride. Everyone was so gracious and helpful, and we had enough food to have three parties! Here is Natalie with her grandmothers at the inspiration celebration (what is now done instead of a baccalaureate).
What a wild ride we're on. Last weekend my youngest daughter and I attended my oldest daughter's college graduation in Boston. In two short weeks Stephanie and I will be attending my youngest's graduation! Family is coming in and festivities must be prepared for. I will be using ideas gathered on many websites, including Heather's and Suze's.
Unfortunately, we must also face a challenge - my mother in law, a beautiful 69 year old woman, suffered a stroke. She is currently doing well with therapy, but the cause of the stroke brings some scary decisions and much uncertainty.
So we keep living our rollercoaster ride of a life, and are grateful for friends and loved ones who are there for us to share the joys, sorrows, challenges, and triumphs!
What a lazy, lovely Mother's Day! I did whatever I darn well pleased! :) Here are a couple of pictures from my trip to the beach early yesterday. The heron on the pier rail let me get within two feet of him to take photos, although this one was from across the walkway. A young boy walked up to look at him, and after about 10 seconds he flew off - poor kid may have thought he was a statue, he jumped so! Click on the image if you 'd like to see it up close and personal (the way we did!). And if you would like to leave me a comment, just click the blue word comments directly beneath this post to send me a little message.
I try to check in on baby Bella to see how she is growing - you might want to visit this blog, http://daisyrockerjenn.blogspot.com, to see her photos, video, and pictures of her progress. It truly is a miracle.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! My purpose is to share my passion for and knowledge about faux finishing with you. Now and then I might just add a little personal information and pieces of my art!
