Stamp carving...

 
Learning to carve stamps.
This is what I've done so far.
This is a bit challenging for me due to my vision issues however
it's so rewarding and helps me practice patience.
Enjoy!

Beach memories...

While at the beach we began having computer problems and upon our return home learned that it contained a major virus. Got it fixed however my Photoshop and a few other things were gone. After weeks of searching, I finally found my Photoshop disc and I was able to reinstall. Needless to say, I got way behind on editing my photos and am still catching up.
Here are a few of the grandkids enjoying the water and sunshine...

What fun they had.
