Photos...Arting...Now, I Am Un-Abilified and FIT Images...

Hello Sweet Friends.  These are photos that I FINALLY downloaded out of my camera:) 

The first is a wonderful sunset from a few months ago.  When I was looking at the downloaded images I could not believe I got the sun shining out of the break in the clouds like that.  Fabulous!!!

This flower and all my flower shots are from the gardens at Debbie's (my therapist) office.  I love to walk around there after we talk and just be.  I always see something wonderful.

These bunnies come out early in the morning and eat the birdseed that has fallen on the ground from the bird feeder.  And the bread I put out there too:)  Aren't they the CUTEST?!!!!

Once again I am overwhelmed at the kindness, love and generosity you all have shown me.  It helps so very much to know I am not alone.  Hearing your experiences lets me know I am not alone.  Your Sweet wonderful words let me know I am not alone.  I am so grateful I can come here and be myself.  Thank You All So Much!!

On the meds front I have been un-Abilifed.  I started having horrible edema (swelling) in my legs and feet.  The doctor put me on Lasix and from Friday until Monday when I went back I had lost 15 pounds of water weight.  Holy Crap!!  I only wish you could pee real pounds out like that too!  LOL!!!  I really hate that i can't take it because it made me feel so much better.  So I have to wait three weeks before we can stir up another cocktail.  Until then I am hoping I continue to feel productive.  I am arting like mad and I LOVE it.

I am sending hugs to you all!  I have answered all the wonderful comments and emails.  Thank you so very much:)  Love, Jamie

These three sisters are so sweet.  I always love those gigantic bows!!!!!  Their names are

Alice, Addie and Jeannette:)

Look at this Sweet Monkey!!!  My favorite part is the perfect dimples on the back of his hands.  Baby hand dimples are precious!!!!

The back of this card is really pretty.  I cleaned it up and erased the photographer's name for you here:

What can you do with this? Anything you want! I used it for my blog name and address:)

Thankyou for all your dear comments,- and the wonderfull free images.Blessings, and feel good.

Hi Jamie,
Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit, and for sending your friend over as well! I'm sorry to hear you had side effects with Abilify, my son takes it and it's made such a difference in his life. Mine too, since he's much nicer to be around! I hope they can find something else that will work for you.
Your art is so beautiful, it's always a treat to stop over here and see what you come up with!

Sweet Jamie,
Love your photo's. When I saw the sun breaking thru the clouds I hoped it was symbolic to how your feeling these days. I hope they find a new cocktail with not so many side effects. Love the new work. Your amazing girl. I look at my collage sheet I bought from you & I can't bring myself to touch it, so perfect. I guess I'll copy it so I can cut one up. Hope to see you soon. Lisa

Hey sweet girl!!!! I'm so, SO glad that you're feeling good!!! We must relish these times and create like mad women! You are so incredibly talented girl, I just want you to know that....and the treasures that Lisa gave me that she got from you are kept in a precious box that Lisa gave me too. I will probably never use the originals as they are truly precious to me! I hope all is well and the babes are doing wonderful too ~ sending you love and hugs dear friend, Dawn
