June 2014 Newsletter
Summer is upon us.
I had polio as a child and they fixed me with exercises in the pool. As I grow older and my mobility is again
challenged, I find that exercise in a pool is working again. Love this pool up here in the trees and surrounded by
What is special about summer?
- What a joy it is to take photos on my cellphone, better than any camera I have ever owned before. Did you know that
you can email us the photos right from your phone and with Photo-to-Artwork we can put them together as a virtual
painting or a
collage. You approve the basic design and the frame. You pay
only for the framing, and the
ArTex which makes your picture look like an oil painting.
the photo work is free. We can personalize your gift for Dad, or Nanna and Poppa.
Father’s Day is June 15th. Men are sometimes hard to
please, for they have everything. Many settle for a generic gift, but that would be a disservice. You want to get your
special gift, a gift that cements the special relationship
you have with him. Photo-to-Artwork if a great gift for Dad, but an even better gift for Nanna and Poppa. Grandparents
Day is on Sunday, September 7th
- In the summer kids often visit with the grandparents, especially up here on the hill. Have they outgrown Mickey
Mouse and Cinderella? Suggestion: Decorate your kid’s room with animals and this will last throughout the teenage
years. We carry unusually warm animal pictures by
Remember, you choose the image and we can frame in any
frame of your choosing.
- In the summer one wants one’s skin to be soft and smooth. When I go to the pool my skin gets dry and my feet
crack. There is an outstanding solution that works for me that comes from Africa. I always have
Shea Butter on hand in the summertime.
During the summer months we display our Art Gallery at the Flying J Truck stop in Lebec. You can find us there outside
Denny’s on the weekend before Father’s Day, and on the Labor Day weekend. We may even be there on the Fourth of July
They have great restrooms at this Truck Stop.
I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying:
"Hi, how are you?"
I'm not the type to start a conversation in the restroom and I don't know what got into me, But I answered,
"Doin' just fine!"
And the other person says:
"So what are you up to?"
What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say,
At this point I want to get out as fast as I can before I hear another question.
"Can I come over?"
Ok, this question is just too weird for me, so time to end the conversation. I say,
"No, I'm a little busy right now!!!"
Then I hear the other person say nervously,
"Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all
Cell phones, don't you just love them!

through the eyes of a child,
we'd find magic.

Here is a testimonial from a
Single Dad for Father’s Day.
"As a single parent it has been important for me to be a stable Dad. A part of this has been to make an
aesthetic place that my children can come home to and be proud of. Picture Lady helped me do this.
"Recently I brought out the pictures I bought more than a decade ago. I like the images but some pictures were
damaged and the frames were just no longer fashionable. The new pictures I had recently bought with the textured finish
were so, so much better.
"So, with the help of the Picture Lady, I engaged in a project to resurrect my old artwork. I trusted her to
choose new frames and treat the images with a textured finish. The result has been just short of phenomenal! I am so
very happy with the enhancement to my favorite pictures.
"Picture Lady you are appreciated!"
