Just finished this little tribute to my dog, Alex, who we had to say goodbye to about a month ago. Our family had fifteen wonderful years with this handsome guy, and I can’t ask for much more than that.It’s been a rough couple of months for my family. Almost two weeks ago, we lost my father as well, after a long battle with cancer. Losing these two has been the most difficult thing I’ve ever gone through. But I like to think that Alex went ahead so my dad would have a happy, wagging tail ready and waiting for him on the other side.

Look what came in the mail today! Printed my children’s book through Blurb.com, and they did a phenomenal job!  My framed pieces are almost all set for the show as well. Just a few last minute adjustments and they’ll be good to go! Preview party is only a few weeks away!
