thanks for popping by! my name is linda, i live in canada with my husband, my best friend, of 40 years. we are bereaved parents, having lost our son in june 2009 to brain cancer; i started this blog in june 2010 to motivate me to continue creating while i travel along my grief journey. we also have a daughter and two grandbunnies that she rescued.
i’ve had some kind of creative outlet since i can remember, but when i was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis i had to give up all of my hobbies. in 2007, i attended a card making class and was happy to discover it was something i could do; watercolouring is my favourite technique and one that i can easily manage, so i watercolour almost all images. i love the CAS (clean and simple) style, but i also love challenges that take me out of my comfort zone. my daughter created my pink snail avatar for me in 2008.
october 2010 – last month i had four surgeries on my left wrist and hand to alleviate pain, but i lost some function in the process, so i’m a slower snail now.
november 2015 – sadly, one of my little grand bunnies passed away on november 10, 2015.
december 2016 i had a knee replaced, which means a bit less time to play while i focus on rehab.
june 2017 I had a hip replaced so rehab is once again my focus but I create when I can.
