Where You At????

Hey Gang,
Under a freakin' rock!! AGHHHHHHHHH!
I know I've been missing in action, but I have been
getting your messages and comments in between
breathing, working and unpacking. It's been a crazy busy
relocation to Charlotte. DRAMA! I miss each of you. I really do.
Thanks so much for you comments and while I am not
able to response right now to them, I so appreciate you
stopping by to leave a word or two. I owe
all of you fabulous people BIG TIME!!!! I am almost
done with a big job and I will be back soon to play.
Right now I have to find out where stuff is you know??
he he he he he!! My very best to ALL of you.

Vee, I know you must be inside one of your moving boxes trying to get out. We miss you but take your time. Turn your new home into a refuge so you can keep on creating marvels and gems like this one! I love you sweetly! Tsup!

Marsha said...

I just moved too, and man is it taxing! I am truly impressed with your ability to continue to work while your life is in boxes. I love this latest painting. Just wonderful!

michele said...

I was just wondering if I needed to send the search and rescue squad! Glad you were able to surface and share some of your charming kids here! Wouldn't it be nice to drift away in one of those bubbles, even just for a little while? Just so long as the landing's a gentle one! Hope you've landed in one, at your new place! :o)

Oooooooooooooh! It's SOOOOO good to see you again! I miss you miss you miss you! And these little boys -- looks like all the gumballs have escaped their little bubble masks! Teeeheeeheeheee! Love 'em!

It's such a good thing I did now stow away in one of your moving boxes! Eeek, you'd never be able to find me!

Is it beautiful there??? Do you just love it??? Is little Z having a blast????? I hope so!

Love love LOVE!

My dearest Vanessa, I have been of the Computer myselfe and i missed so much. I read all your posts and <i can´t believe what happend to Al. You see that in Movies but Al is a real persn, your brother in Law and that makes him real for me too. This must have been so unbelievable horrible for him and your family.
When you can do nothing, and authoritiesdo not belive you.
He must be a very strong and special person, when he managed to come out sane and whole and not bitter.
I bet i would be bitter.
20 Years, great god!
It´s wonderful that your Baby and Al have that special relationship.
Wonderfull for both of them.
And I think it is wonderfull, that you are going to tell their story.
And I love the cover of the other book to. That´s brilliant, you are a demanded illustrator and right so!!!!
Copycat is sooo funny. I tell you what, the hat suits hger much more than stupid princess B.
Kittycat has surely style. You see that when you look at the glasses that match so perfectly to that hilarious hat.
I hope your work with your relocation will be done soon and you enjoy your new home.
Have a great week

Hey, missing you doesn't convey it! I can't believe NJ let you go! Now, I've got to go all the way to Charlotte to see you!!!! Now you know you're wrong!!!! Anyhow, I'm glad I have family and friends there, so I can sneak up on ya, any time! Lol! Just missing you!!! Wait until Charlotte realizes what they have!!! :) Remember, to breathe...take your time, it's too hot there to move fast anyway! Ciao, Bella!!!

Shirley said...
