A journal page where I rejoiced in the use of colour and line.


  1. Patti-

    I was delighted to read your daughter's post. It gives me a lot of HOPE, as you know of my tangles and snarls in these teenage years with my own babes.

    I love your creative style - and this fish is beautiful - color, color, color!!!

    It's so cool getting to know you ... and it's heartwarming that Lauren is getting to know you and appreciating you for the woman you are ... beyond just holding the title of her "Mum."

  2. ok, i really want this fish. can it happen?

  3. Hi Patti, I tried to leave your sister Cate a message but I think she has her site set up so that it will only accept messages from Blogger. What wonderful feedback from Lauren (and I love her name too!) It must feel great to be connected in this way, to so many in your family. I think the members of my family who don't live close by, think they're either too busy or blogging is just a little too "out there" for them!

  4. omg...tears!!
    It is awesome to read your daughter's comments here!
    She sounds like she's grown into a fabulous young woman. Be proud mama!
    I especially like this part that made me laugh out loud....
    ("All of a sudden you realise she's not just your mum but a person")
    Sounds like you have a wonderful, close and loving family!
    AND the fish is AMAZING!!!

  5. hey there-
    i just left a message on your daughter's blog. she is as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the outside - and that's SO where it's at!


please share a thought......
