Camping in our new Grand Design 5th wheel and loving it!  We are with some of our camping group and missing the ones who could not be with us!

This weekend, I brought some of my unique shirts to sell.  Think I'll bring them to the clubhouse this afternoon to see if there is any interest...I will leave some business cards there, also.

Today we will have our Christmas Feast and our gift exchange.  I found a new exchange game on Facebook and hope it is as much fun as it looks!

Wishing you all a great day.  I'll be back in my studio tomorrow so hopefully I'll be able to post more new work soon!

Thank you for following me!  If you have any suggestions or requests...just leave a comment...oh, and don't forget to sign my guestbook on the first page of the website!


Words for Wednesday!

" Our personal trials have taught us the value of unmerited suffering. As our sufferings mounted we soon realize that there are two ways that we could respond to the situation: either to react with bitterness or to transform the suffering into a creative force."

Hoping you have a safe, happy and productive day!

Tuesday's Wise Words

"Coming to understand that we aren’t responsible for the actions of anybody but ourselves feels like a vacation when appreciated from the right perspective."


Hoping your Tuesday is happy, peaceful and productive!

Monday's Wise Words!

"Failure is just an illusion. A failure is a clue that says another step is needed.

So, don't stop.. You're almost there."



"Laughter heals all wounds, and that's one thing that everybody shares. No matter what you're going through, it makes you forget about your problems."
Find the time to laugh today...even if you have to laugh at yourself!! Godspeed!

Just wanted to share

A friend sends me the most uplifting messages each day and I wanted to share this with you today!

"Every thought that we have has an energy that will either strengthen or weaken you. So think positive thoughts! "

I've been hard at work getting ready to "glamp" with our friends. We are hosts this month and will have a Christmas feast. Our gift exchange will be a new game this have to throw a die and follow the instructions for the number of dots you get. I'm hoping this turns out to be lots of fun.

Meantime, I'm working on regenerating my children's book, MY ALPHABET GARDEN TOUR, which is being illustrated by Art by Eloise. I will first publish as an e-book on Kindle. Once that is completed, my plan is to move ahead with my second book...a fun numbers book for pre-schoolers! Watch for updates.

Hope you all are ready for the holidays. We celebrate Christmas, so we always wish a Merry Christmas. Hope that does not offend anyone...because...we also wish you a happy or merry your holiday as well! Sending you love and hugs!!

A day to be Thankful!

On this 28th Day of November, 2019, I stop what I am doing to give thanks for all the wonderful blessings I've received. over the course of the last year.  I am thankful for:

1.  My family and especially my "energizer bunny" husband who kindly does all the "heavy" stuff for me

2. My friends...including all those I haven't met face-to-face yet

3. All the wonderful people who support my art and have purchased my art

4. My camping buddies...who continually inspire me and love me despite my faults

5. And...for all you who will stay with me over the coming year!

Love you all lots

Thank you!


Here's a wonderful thought that was sent to me and it is too good not to share!  "Create a ripple effect today. Be kind to everyone, wherever you go. Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end."


Yup!  I'm back already!  

Sadly, I've had to change back to an older version of my guestbook.  I love my fans, followers, friends, family, guests SO much.  I have asked, politely I thought, to please not use my guestbook to market another site and/or service.  There was a field to add a URL and that was too much temptation for many.  I am a great advocate of sharing the sites and work of other artists.  My only request was if you wanted to share that with me, send it to me in an e-mail.  Surprisingly, if anyone would have done that, they would have found themselves shared on my Facebook page where it could be seen by about 3000 people.

As you can see, my plea did not work so I have changed the guestbook to a format that doesn't include a URL can still send me your website in an e-mail and I will still love to share it!  One has to be family friendly stuff, okay?

I will cordially invite you to go to the home page and sign my guestbook.  You are all important to me!
