More Kindergarten Antics

Good Sunday Afternoon Everyone,

Hope all of you are enjoying a labor free weekend (yes, I know what the holiday’s for). For me, I’m sitting in the Apple store learning, again, how to edit videos.  I look like a wet dog because I raced out of the shower to make my early appointment.  It was worth the rush because I’m starting to remember what I knew before my summer break.  I’m not alone, most kids who took a summer break are feeling the pain of reviewing what they knew three months ago – Boring!

This video was made for me to work with today. But, like the previous water color video it’s worth sharing. I’ll get real about water color techniques soon.

Why do it? Making our own background paper helps our color and shape awareness expand. But, I do it just for the FUN! You?

Watercolor Hugs, Sonja

Sonja Returns to Kindergarten and Stampin’ Up

3 Sep

Hello Everyone,

This summer’s free concerts, vacations and gardening are winding down so I’m happily returning to my indoor creative life.  I wonder if your stamping slows down in the summer too?  Probably not, most of you have a habit that must be seen to so.  I hope you had a creative and fun summer.

Today, I feel like I’m returning to kindergarten.  After you see this video you’ll agree.  Well, there’s no place but UP from here so stay tuned to this blog.  We’re going to have some FUN!

Kindergarten hugs around your knees,


Are you free tomorrow, Sunday August 30th, noonish?

Hugs All, Sonja

This is me, newly shaved because I couldn’t stand watching hair clumps fall out. I came up with PGT because shopping for thank you cards after chemo treatments was just too much for me. I spent those months feeling bad because I wasn’t sending thank you cards to the wonderful people who were supporting me.  Who needs guilt on top of cancer treatments?  Nobody!  That’s why beautiful, free cards are available in the RMCC chemo room.  That’s Project Give Thanks!   2010

Thank you Marla!

Thanks to Marla, and a few other card artists, Easter cards are now available in the Rocky Mountain Cancer Center’s chemo infusion room.  These beautiful handmade cards are free and available for cancer survivors to use during their treatment time or to take home for when a cheerful card is needed.

Marla, you’re as sweet as a bright yellow chicken peep! Thank you.

Rainbow hugs from me to all of you! Sonja
