This is the last drawing in the 5th of 6 journals Nancy filled in June 2012

5 134 2 erased

This is how it looks in stitch,
shown here with the delectables at City Cafe in Fayetteville, GA
where we went after Alison’s show tonight:


And here’s the sweet (and talented) one called Alison,
my daughter/Nancy’s niece,
also standing near the sweets.


It’s been a really sweet weekend so far.


She is my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Nancy,
and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.
Go here to start at the beginning.


  1. Bsain

    I LOVE this!
    Thank you.

  2. Lalizlatina

    I love you.

    • whollyjeanne

      and you know i love you to a crisp.

  3. angelakelsey

    No note? Please? xoxo

  4. Square-Peg Karen

    Oh, Jeanne – oh Wholly and wonderfully Jeanne – I love you! This “my wand’s a wastin’” made me guffaw – sooooo glad I had already swallowed that gulp of coffee.

    • whollyjeanne

      karen, you are such a great addition to crew with your effervescence and supportive nature. i just love you to pieces.

  5. nakedjen ❦

    i heart you. in mad ways. and i’ve never told you that until just now, but i just need to let you know.

    • whollyjeanne

      well, feel free to tell me again and again and again, okay? (btw, the feeling is mutual.)

  6. Christine Bougie

    This is a great spin on the prompt. Love it.

  7. Erica OGrady

    Hahahahahaha 😉

    I think at the end you should record these tips as a short Video Blog. Priceless.

  8. DR. Dolly

    made me smile. not that i’m one to give a rip if people unfriend me on FB or unfollow me, but if I *did* care, yeah—total attitude!

    Awesome! Maybe I’ll quit reading the emails from Twunfollow! I love the way you write…reminds me of some of Bette Midler’s bits in her show. But so much better…love you!

  11. Linda

    agree with ericagrady – would be a wonderful video blog demonstration!
    the sting of the unfollowing/defriending! I think with facebook sometimes I don’t realize I’ve been defriended unless I’m on their profile and there’s an option to “add as friend.”

    Wah!? I thought we WERE friends. 🙂

  12. Sally G.

    You KNOW ABOUT the cool girls in the convertible. Gosh, they get around.

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one targetted for Unfollow and Unfriending. What a mini-heart shatter those realizations can be.

    I have found – that of all the things I have let go, I miss my mind the most. Given the opportunity, I’d love to have it back. Or at least, parts of it …

  13. ms. xj

    I’m a day late, but I love this tip. Being let go does not make you less of a person. You’re one smart fairy!!

  14. Guinevere

    My therapist has been telling me I need a coach-voice in my head, but maybe what I really need is a fairy godmother. 🙂 thanks –G
