JUNE ~ No Gloom Here!

Timing is everything and timing was with me on June 1st.  Having dropped my iPhone one too many times, it took a major dump!  Yet, I was in and out of the Sprint store with my new iPhone 7+ in under an hour...a record, I'm sure!  



The best news is that I can upgrade in 12 months...the "8" will be just months old and hopefully the "bugs" will be worked out by then.  I'm only interested in that I use the camera almost exclusively for all my photos, so I'm always looking for the next best one.

Always the optimist, three days later I nearly sliced off my finger tip!

Remember...I said optimist...because I only took off a quarter of the fingernail, and it was my left hand.  Well, within 4 days I was out of the bulbous white bandage and sporting a nice fabric Band-Aid.  I'll spare you the gory details, but if it's something you just gotta see, head over to my Facebook page...there's a nice one there! 
(Some of you might remember the lovely job I did on my finger on Easter Sunday a few years back...I captured it in a blog post.)

 A BIG highlight this month was a  Coronado Island getaway for Art Retreat at the Beach



...an "Artist in Residence" workshop with the extremely talented Robert Lopez!  Thank you Barb and Erin and the vivi magoo productions team for making this possible!

This was an amazing learning experience for me, and the topping on the cake was the group of new friends I made!

It's 100+ degrees here in Tucson and we've been breaking all kinds of temperature records.  So, that being said, I will take my leave AND I'm....

Have a safe and wonderful summer, and see you in September!
