A Happy New Year to all who visit the creative lenna blog! I am so glad to have you with me on my journey. If you follow my work here regularily, you know it's been quite a while since I posted . . . I must say I have enjoyed my time away with my family. Steven and I are having great fun discovering the charms of simple pleasures like playing one of our favorite childhood games, Monopoly! Because of our vacation & the time we enjoyed together, we have also proposed to take 2 days off a month, as a "vacation date". No computer for Steven or I, no work; just time spent together however we choose! Yesterday was the first of these "vacation dates" and we visited the New Britain Museum of American Art. Wonderful! I saw one of my great Uncle's paintings there, always a thrill. We watched Forest Gump on TV, played Monopoly, read books (I'm reading Elinor Lipman), cooked dinner and talked. I am looking forward to this!

I did want to drop by though and say hi, and also share a photo I took while Steven & I were in St. John, US Virgin Islands. As you can see, it is quite beautiful there. If you click on the photo, it will take you to my flickr photo sharing account where you can view many more pictures as a slideshow or singly, as you choose. Steven & I took probably 200-300 photos between us, but don't worry - I did not upload them all! We hope to use many of them in artwork in the months to come. I also kept a diary of sorts while we were there and I may choose some photos and upload them along with my entries in the weeks to come.

I have recently updated my creative swaps blog and I welcome you to visit: http://creativeswaps.blogspot.com/

We wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year! Yours creatively, Lenna
