I was creatively occupied by making these vintage-themed row houses before and after the holidays. I spent a relaxing two weeks in Florida with my son, Adam, and his fiance, Robyn. The day after Christmas they went on a 5-day cruise to Cozumel and the Cayman Islands while I doggy-sat their two beastie-babies. They entrusted me with their Garmin GPS unit and their cars and I had a great time shopping for after-Christmas sales at the local craft and hobby stores while they were cruising. I came home with a stash of new holiday stamps, embellishments and ideas to add to my row houses.
