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!
