Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

"Since changes are going on anyway, the great thing is to learn enough about them so that we will be able to lay hold of them and turn them in the direction of our desires. Conditions and events are neither to be fled from nor passively acquiesced in; they are to be utilized and directed."

STILL STAYING HOME...STAYING SAFE!

"It is wisest and best to fix our attention on the beautiful and the good, and dwell as little as possible on the evil and the false."

Took some flower macros in the yard today.  Thinking I'll do a little watercolor painting and then some photo editing!

HOW YOU DOIN'?

SO...REALLY, HOW ARE YOU DOING?  ARE YOU ALL FOLLOWING THE RULES FOR THE DREADED VIRUS? I SURELY HOPE SO...WE DON'T NEED TO LOSE A SINGLE ONE OF YOU.

MY HOUSE IS FOLLOWING THE RULES, SO WE ARE GETTING LOTS DONE. I'M WORKING ON MY NEXT KIDS BOOK.  SLOWLY CREATING ART TO GO WITH IT.  IT WILL BE LAUNCHED AS A KINDLE E-BOOK FIRST, THEN IN A SOFT COVER. 

I AM HOPING MY FOLLOWERS ARE SHARING MY WORK BECAUSE I COULD SURE USE MORE SALES.  NOT MUCH PHOTOGRAPHY IS HAPPENING BECAUSE I'M STUCK AT HOME.  I MAY HAVE TO START POSING COAL AND HOLLY FOR FUNNY DOG PORTRAITS.  IF YOU KNOW OUR COAL, THAT COULD BE SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS!!

MEANTIME FOLKS, PLEASE DON'T HOARD STUFF, STAY HOME, WASH YOUR HANDS, HELP YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS IF YOU CAN.  JUST PLEASE STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY! 

GOOD THURSDAY MESSAGE!

"Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live."

HARD WORK PAYS OFF!!

I am so excited! My Alphabet Garden Tour is now available as a soft-cover book. Check it out! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085HHJ357/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=my+alphabet+garden+tour&qid=1583411747&sr=8-3

Just want to take a moment here to thank each and every one of you that continue to support my art.  You are all awesome!

FRIDAY'S WORDS

"We are never without the solutions to our problems. Its just that sometimes we have to remain peaceful and patient while we are waiting for the solution to become clear."

PUBLISHING IS LABOR INTENSIVE HARD WORK!

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 book...bi-lingual...I 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!

DID YOU MISS ME?

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...

THURSDAY!

"All of us are born for a reason, but all of us don't discover why. Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for others."

Are you ready for the weekend yet?

We sure are...weather 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!

IT'S SATURDAY! HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!

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."
