I have been very lazy lately. Actually I lost my mojo, whatever that is. When people can't seem to create, they say they lost their mojo. Well, I have been in a non-creative place for a couple of months now. Since I haven't been here for quite a while, I will fill you in on some things. In March I took a vacation; no housework, no cooking, no kids, no responsibilities except for myself.

We drove down to Galveston, TX twice and spent the better part of both days there. Went shopping along the Strand, visited the exhibit "The Body Revealed" at Moody Gardens and had lunch at a little place called Eatcetra. food was delicious.

I went to Galveston with my camera and took pictures of ab-so-lutely nothing!! Oh, the pictures you see, well I took them a couple of years ago with my phone. That time I didn't take my camera to Galveston and I really should have.
In September 2008, Hurricane Ike roared through Galvestion and left so much devastation. The salt water from the storm surge killed thousands of trees.The pictures on the left are tree sculptures that were carved out of some of the dead trees. My pictures do not do them justice.

The woman in the bottom picture had a note on her requesting donations. I don't remember what the donation request was for..  
 We didn't take time to drive around Galveston this year, so I didn't get any new pictures. I'm putting that on my list of things to do next year.

I hope you enjoy the pictures I took. At the web address below, you can see more of these sculptures, including the three I have posted here. It also gives the addresses of the carvings.

Awesome pics! TFS. I hope you get your craft mojo back soon. We all go thru that from time to time.

Glad to see you back, Joyce! Your pictures are great and I'm glad you enjoyed your break. I'm in a bit of a crafting funk myself and hope to get back to regular posting.
