EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

JUST FUN.....

Finished ...... It can be easy ..... Growing instructions ..... planting seeds.....love these ....good advice...plenty of room apart so they can grow tall...... Guaranteed to grow ..... What a joy to just get to spend a day in the studio. No plans.... I just played and they came to me. As I told a friend ... "it is expressing my soul to paint".....good or bad .... all to Him. I've been called a "goody-two-shoes" for sharing my faith ..... truth is.... I'm as big a sinner as there is with things in my past I would be ashamed to share. So there, I'm not so good ..... just forgiven and full of joy because He loves me, gave me a second chance, helps renew me each day, helps to heal me, helps me love the unlovable .... even myself. Maybe you don't believe in Him, that's your choice, but I do believe in Him, and I'm not ashamed of it, because He gives me worth, I am eternally grateful. He says.... "You are worth it,......what I did." So much that I try to say sometimes is mis understood, .... I hope this is not.

i love these!!! i'm so glad you had time to play and what you wrote is so true of me, too. if people could see my ugliest secrets and my present heart sometimes, they would maybe understand more about grace and why i choose Jesus.

Your art boxes are beautiful! It seems like the timing was just right for creating them - time alone, and an open mind to listen to where the Spirit is calling you!

From a fellow "Goody Two Shoes!"
(but I'd prefer being called that to the alternative!!)

All blessings!
