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!!!

I have an on going new EVENT on my FACE BOOK..... called "ART EVERYDAY JOURNALING" .  You are welcome to join in if you like..... it has been fun with a few friends who aren't even artists, they thought!,  to do some doodling and sketching and writing thoughts. Some are surprised I think at how good they are and we have just had fun overall!!  It is a challenge to me mostly to do some doodling or sketching every day for one year!!  Especially since I have had my art supplies packed away for almost a year trying to get moved!! So I am doing it to get me back to some drawing and playing with my simple tools of pencil, ball point pen, and cheap water colors and some color pencils..... someone seems to post at least EVERYDAY and it has become a way to communicate with each other and have something fun to look forward to!  No telling what God is going to do with this!!  I think after a year in 2013 in September we will actually have a get together EVENT!!  Anyway, stay tuned to see...also click on my FACE BOOK to the left to go to the EVENT and join or say you are "going"....which means going everyday to see what we are up to or to post your own fun doodling!!  I will post a bunch of the doodles done so far from me..... enjoy and BLESSINGS TO YOU!!!

Again, very creative. I can't believe you have had your art supplies packed away for this long... I can see that you have kept yourself busy with this Art Journaling...so glad you are able to still paint.

I loved the peacock feather... and the other feathers that your drew. Looks like you are still 'dreaming' of the time when you will be moved into you new home..

such a process, isn't it?

hugs to you, my friend
