HAPPY, HEALTHY AND SAFE NEW YEAR 2021!

Hope you all have great, but safe plans to ring in the New Year.  We will be at home, just the two of us and the two fur babies...probably won't make it to midnight!

As 2020 draws to a close, I want to thank all my collectors and followers for being there for me, supporting my efforts and purchasing my creations!  This might be the best year I've had yet...so...thank you so very much!

I am hoping to get into a more creative frame of mind in 2021... so if you are so inclined, give me some suggestions for products or images you'd like to see.  

Please share my children's books with friends and family...sales have been very slow...

I'm considering creating a calendar for 2022... using my photography images.  I would love feedback from you so I can gauge the interest in that product.  

So, ya'll, be safe and stay warm and cozy and surrounding yourself with love this year...sprinkle it all over the place!

God Bless!

GREETINGS!

Christmas is only about a week away.  I've been hearing horror stories about slow shipping so I am hoping you all have completed all your gift buying!

I have one more Etsy order to complete and ship.  My customary process for these is to quickly send a proof of the wording to the buyer for approval (spelling and such) and a request for them to confirm the address they provided. I am usually able to get these orders out in a day or two if the buyer cooperates....most do!  This last order, however, has not responded to numerous e-mails and Etsy messages for the past 3 days....Yikes...I hope she doesn't need this by Christmas!  I have made an "executive" decision to complete the order without approval/confirmation of this buyer so she hopefully receives it in time.  My shop does not refund or accept returns so I really don't like to do this, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

My "this is how we roll" w/fifth wheel painting had two sales to a buyer in California...on sweatshirts!  How cool is that!  I will be creating more camping stuff with graphics of different camper styles in the upcoming year.  I do have the capability of putting a picture of YOUR camper on a shirt.  The Etsy shop will soon have a Camping section...check back for updates!

SOMETHING NEW...

GUEST BOOK...

CAN I ASK A FAVOR OF MY FOLLOWERS?  IT WOULD BE A WONDERFUL THING IF YOU WOULD SIGN THE GUEST BOOK ON MY WEBSITE...and leave a comment...hopefully a nice once...I WOULD ALSO BE APPRECIATIVE IF YOU WOULD SHARE MY BLOG PAGE WITH YOUR ART LOVING FRIENDS AND CRAFT BUYERS.

THANK YOU!

WOW...Christmas is getting close!

Are you done with your gift buying yet?  Have you shopped in your home country?  I hope you have shopped small business locally, too!

You can gift your friends and loved ones with art...either for decorating a room, or on clothes and stuff...check out my Etsy shop, Society 6, Redbubble, Zazzle and Fine Art America to see if there is anything that appeals to you!

Meantime, be happy, healthy and active during the month...oh, and pray that 2021 is a huge improvement in the health arena and that all the progress made to our economy, etc. doesn't slip backward!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Well, it's thanksgiving day and I am sure many are busy preparing delicious meals.  Please observe the protocol for health safety for your family and friends.

I am thankful today for my faith in a God that never fails and for family and friends that love and support each other.  I am thankful for tolerant and considerate people.  You are who will help our country and our world survive.

Now, being a day of thanks, please leave a comment on what you are thankful for...despite the state of the world, search deep...we all have an abundance of things we can be thankful for...God Bless!

THANKFUL!

As we approach Thanksgiving Day here in the states, I wanted to let all of my followers and subscribers know how much I appreciate you.  I am thankful that you like my art.  You are what and who keep me creating. Please keep on sharing my websites and work.

We are entering yet another surge of this dreaded virus and my prayer is that each and every one of you...your friends and your families stay safe and healthy.  Please distance yourself and wear a mask...if we all do this, it won't last much longer.  I truly believe that!

I will be working in my studio over the holidays...maybe a new painting will emerge (I hope).  Meantime, I wish each one of you a Very Happy Thanksgiving...May God Bless you Abundantly!

FALL IN NORTH CAROLINA WAS AN ADVENTURE!

We left Florida the last week of October and headed for the mountains of North Carolina!  We discovered that we missed the peak of the fall color by two weeks ~ dang!  Good news is that there was still plenty of color to capture.  

Our happy little group thought by leaving Florida we would be away from "hurricane" season which we all know is in full swing in October.  Much to our surprise a sneaky little storm once again hit along the upper gulf coast and traveled right up over Cherokee, NC, where we were camped.  Fortunately, we were tucked into a little valley, surrounded by mountains so we were sheltered from the worst of it.  A flash flood warning was in place and the river at our campground was running high and fast.  The photographer in me was secretly loving this because it made the rivers and falls look great!

So my update is that while I am still busy editing my photos, I have uploaded several to Fine Art America and Photo4Me.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

Once everything is edited, I'll be adding some to my Etsy shop so you can purchase prints if you like!

Okay, time to get back to the photos...ya'll have an awesome day!

MORE PHOTOGRAPHY ADVENTURES COMING!

Soon we'll be doing some traveling around Florida hoping to find some great landscapes, wildlife and maybe, just maybe, some fall colors.

We will also be heading to the mountains of North Carolina to get some of that wonderful fall foliage color and hoping to find more awesome waterfalls!

Stayed tuned for more news!  Celebrate life safely!!
