Art is the window to the soul

"Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible."

That fits every artist, no matter what medium or tools they use!

Have a splendid day!


New year, new work!  I've been so very busy reworking my kids alphabet book.  My publisher just disappeared and left all their authors in the lurch!!

So, I've got a great illustrator, Eloise Art, and I have been spending lots of hours re-creating my work.  If everything goes as planned, I will be offering this book as a Kindle e-book.  It is for toddlers and pre-schoolers...encouraging the love of reading and helping them learn letters and letter sounds.  It is written to address all learning styles and ESE.  My hope is that our little people will have their grown-ups take them out in their yards or to a park to read together, play with the letter sounds and find stuff in their own environment that start with the alphabet letters.  

I have created a Facebook page for my books...Judy Hall-Folde, Author  I hope you will take the time to give the page a like and follow me...there will be more to come!


New year brings new visions, new hopes and new dreams.  This artist is working on becoming more creative and diving into writing!  There is a fantastic artist working on illustrations for the new version of "My Alphabet Garden Tour."  Once it is all put together, my plan is to release it as a kindle e-book.

On the back burner has been my English/Spanish pre-school numbers book...I am using graphics and some of my own sketches and working to make this 1 through 0 learning experience fun and exciting for all learning styles as well as our exceptional little people!  My children's books are all written so parents/guardians can use them to reinforce learning.  We all need to gift our children with the love of reading and learning so they grow and flourish in all their educatonal careers.

Always keep your dreams in prayer.

Magnificent Monday!

"You either get bitter or you get better. It's that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down."


Hope your Monday is going well.  It is almost Christmas, so I really hope you are all prepared for the holidays.

Frank and I will be helping distribute Christmas meals to seniors who cannot get out.  This, I think, will actually be a gift for us!!  Then we plan on walking around Bush Gardens and treating ourselves to a meal there.  We are hoping it is not crowded on Christmas day!


Serious Sunday Words...

"No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind."
Don't hate, don't be vindictive, try your best not to judge...don't slant your stories to make yourself look bigger or better...Honesty is always the best!
So, here's working on making a "timeless" Sunday dinner...pot roast with potatoes, carrots, onions and peppers.  Ah, good food for a cool, rainy Florida day!
Have a blessed day....I'll be back!

Thursday Thoughts!

"Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it's who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment."

Wishing all of you an amazing Thursday!

Wednesday's Words

"One day you'll realize that material things mean nothing. All that really matters is your well-being and that of the people in your life."

I've got a new product and it is listed in my Etsy Shop...Ellie the Elephant (drawn and painted by me) can now be put onshirts and reusable totes.



"The more authentic you become, the more genuine in your expression, particularly regarding personal experiences and even self-doubts, the more people can relate to your expression and the safer it makes them feel to express themselves."

Back from camping...and never took out my shirts to they all came home!  Was a rainy weekend, but we camp with the best group of buddies, so our spirits were not dampened!

The only photos I took were those of our Christmas party :(  

Now on to getting our gifts in the mail and making our plans to enjoy the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior!

Wishing you all a spectacular Monday!


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!
