Trying to Decide Isn't Easy

This week I had to say goodbye to hosting Tag Tuesday. I just don't have the energy and once I have used up the allotment for the day, then everything else must be dropped. Hosting a blog challenge took more time and energy than I thought it would and I knew I had to let it go. Because of the cyclical nature of this illness, I never know when I will be drained and how long it lasts. It was not an easy decision for me, and someday perhaps, if I improve enough, maybe I can start it up again.

Meanwhile, I want to focus more on doing art just for myself, and to share. With that thought in mind, I altered a postcard I had received earlier.


...became this.
(click for detail)

I had originally received it from Germany, and I removed the stamp, added papers, scraps and paint and the postage stamp to the front, and attached some cardstock on the back so that a new message can be written. Now, I must send it off to somebody. Actually I made it with my sister Judy in mind. She just had back surgery and I wanted to lift her spirits. 

Hey Judy!! :)

Be sure and see my latest postcards I've received on Postcards Buffet!


  1. I adore the postcard! Very colorful and hope that it is in my box today! Thanks so much, it always makes me smile when I get a card from you! Sorry you had to give up the Tag Tuesday! But I am glad you are listening to what your body says it can handle! Love you bunches Sis!
