Dreaming of Better Days

What a week! I am so glad that it is Friday, this has been a very long week. It started with our share of the snow and a snow day for me on Monday. Back to work on Tuesday, but the end got worse, with a break in to my house. Thankfully no one was hurt, my little black shadow - Hugo was unhurt, just scared, the duvet showing evidence of his hurry to hide from the intruders, and only a few possessions gone. Last night was spent contacting the police, waiting for their visit, then securing the door and property and today contacting insurance, getting quotes for repairs, etc.

So For ACF this week using the wonderful image provided I have chosen to direct my energies into believing in better days to come, and created this digital montage - Dreaming of Carefree Days........... Here's hoping! I wish you all a great happy weekend.

Having once had a break-in, I empathize with your feeling of violation. I'm amazed you were able to create such a beautiful piece of art at such an unsettling time! Good work.

Sally, this is a beautiful digital art work. I love how you used the image and added those gorgeous butterflies.

I'm very sorry to hear of the breakin. It does do something to you. We had one years ago and though nothing but a small appliance was taken, I felt violated, especially when I saw the intruder had gone through my dresser drawers. I'm happy your Hugo is safe. Duvet covers can be washed or replaced, a small price to pay for the safety of our beloved pets.
