This year has been the most amazing yet. We've had tragedy and sorrow, but, in the midst of it all, I stop and think of all those people with whom I have become acquainted just in the past 12 months. I am grateful for all of them , for all the experiences we 've shared, the new things we've all tried, and the fun we've had. Age makes no difference in the quality of those new relationships - it may even make things better. To my family, my children, my husband, and all my new friends, happy holidays, keep an eye on my blog and my shops - the New Year will bring some amazing inspiration and more artwork than in the past.
