Holiday Greetings

Happy Holidays

Hello ya'll,

I hope there is still some time to use these graphics.  Christmas draws close, as does the beginning of a new year.  I pray this is the best new year for all, and I hope it opens a whole new world for me.  I will hopefully be vending at Comi-Con in May, and I hope to hear soon about a teaching position for August.  There will also be lots of physical roadblocks to overcome with my hands and arms, with surgery being some of the roadblocks.  However, with surgery comes hope that limitations are lifted, or as with my knees, just more crap happening......we will see.

I'm very excited for my grandson's first Christmas, although he won't be close to an age to enjoy all the wrappings, etc.  He's the hope in my heart for a brighter future.

I pray you all have the warmest, best Christmas and that blessings surround you all.

Have a great one!

Love and hugs,

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Hello all,

Another year is coming to an end soon, is it just me or are they screaming by?  My life has been enriched beyond belief with the birth of my first grandchild, Maxwell.  I had the best "playday" with him last week as I got to read him a story, watch some Micky Mouse on TV, feed him and watch him nap.  He's precious beyond belief and I'm just soaking the experience in like a sponge.

I have a lot of creative challenges coming up soon, as well as physical ones, but I'm looking forward to them.  I shall be serving around 24 for Thanksgiving dinner, and it will be a little sad as it's possibly the last Thanksgiving that I can host the whole family as we will be trying to sell our home in the coming months.  Yes, I'll be ridding myself of my amazing studio and trying to downsize, but I will never give up on creating.

There will always be challenges of some sort in my life, whether personal or physical, and sadness that friendships have to end for childish reasons, yet knowing I will make other friends that might last the rest of my life which is the promise I strive for.

I wish all my friends, whether by blog, by FaceBook, by Instagram, or in person, the happiest of Thanksgivings and I pray you are all in good health and surrounded by loved ones for this holiday season.

God Bless,

Halloween swap goodies

Hellooo all!

Just thought I'd stop in and let you all see the goodies I got this year from my good friend Lynn Stevens of "Trash to Treasure art."  Lynn and I have been swapping goodies on and off for almost 7 years now and I have to tell you..........she's amazingly generous!  Look at all this Halloween fun!

2 charms she made plus various goodies to create with.

Look at this charming tag

Isn't this the cutest little shrine?

She made me three lovely pieces to hang on my wall, too.

I don't know about you all, but I surely do treasure the many friends I've made through blogging and now through FaceBook, which is where I'm spending most of my time right now.

I wish you all the happiest of Halloweens, and may you all revel in the day when little kiddies wearing costumes come begging for candy.
