Okay!  My Alphabet Garden Tour is published and available as a Kindle e-book!

I have spent the last few days working on the soft-cover edition of this.  Wow...not an easy task.  Amazon does provide resources to make this easier...but EVEN with that help, I've had to edit my set up and copy at least 4 times!  Today, I uploaded the file and this one should be acceptable for printing.  I'm just waiting for their review and notification that the paper edition is available!

Still working on the next am wanting many of the illustrations to be by my own hand, so the going is slow!  I can't wait to get my Ellie in print in a book.  She is so stinkin' cute!

Appreciate it if all my followers would share my work.  My goal is to have our little people loving to read and learn!


I've been a bit under the weather with some kind of virus (now healing).  My studio is turned topsy-turvey while a new tile floor is being installed, so I have been kind of out of commission.

But, I'm back!  Today, my kids book, My alphabet garden tour, is now live and available for purchase on Amazon as a kindle book.  It will soon be offered as a soft cover book, as well.  please check it out!

i am working on book number 2 for kids, too.  hopefully this will be completed soon.  it will feature my charming friend, ellie the elephant!  It will be bi-lingual!  Keep an eye out for it!

hope you are looking forward to the next season...whatever it is for wherever you are...

Are you ready for the weekend yet?

We sure will not be too fine tonight and early tomorrow morning, but the rest of the weekend is looking awesome.  Perfect weather for getting some great photos in a forest and at a lake!

Stay tuned for previews!

Meantime, you all have a wonderful rest of the week!


So today we've got two quotes.  Thank you to Vickie Benjaminson for sharing these with us every day.  


"When we live as our authentic selves, decisions become easier because we aren't concerned with what others think of us--rather, we're concerned that we're doing right or wrong, and we know in our spirits what the difference is."


"One of the miracles of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see."


"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."


Yes!  And don't you forget it!  Starting today, let it go and let it flow...every day can be a brand new chapter of a better life!


"If you have the chance to make people happy, just do it. Sometimes people are struggling silently. Maybe, your act of kindness can make their day."

Hoping you have a great day and spectacular weekend!


"The mindless junk of your past crowds out opportunities and sets pointless limitations. Move out the junk, and you create room for the rest of your life. Ultimately, it's not just a question of tidying your house; it's a question of liberating your heart."

My Alphabet Garden Tour is now available in my Etsy shop as a digital download!


I now have a presence on Amazon!  My Alphabet Garden Tour is not published up there yet...but soon, I hope.  Meantime some of my art is available and I will be adding some other products!




"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!
