THANK YOU (see you in January)!!!!

If I were my own best friend I would say…

“THANK YOU and Happy Holidays!” to all the wonderful people who have supported this fledgling blog.

***Thank you to every one of you who has subscribed or stops by on a regular basis to see what I am up to. I appreciate you so very much. This blog started in May as an experiment and it has brought me great joy each day to sit down and draw a little, write a little, and receive and respond to your fabulous comments a little. I hope you have found something in these posts that has made you smile, or think, or find a moment of happiness in your day. 

I wish each of you a very happy holiday season, regardless of how or what you celebrate. If I could wrap up peace, hope, and good health in a box or bag I would do just that and send it your way. 

Some of you may have noticed the slightly sporadic posting over the last few weeks. Life is getting very busy right now, with some major changes on the horizon and because of that I am going to take a short “posting-break” until the new year. 

I will be back in January with new drawings, new thoughts and new advice for myself (and anyone else who wants to tune-in). I also have a couple of fun giveaways in the works, so I do hope you will stick around! Again, THANK YOU for being a part of this blog. It means so much to me. And finally, wishing you a very happy holiday season. Cheers!


Fill your home.

If I were my own best friend I would try to live my life with a quote from William Morris in mind…

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

— William Morris

***I like this quote. It makes me think. What do I want my home to be filled with? I always come back to the same answer – the people I love and care about. I think they are the most beautiful (and useful) parts of my life. 

Obviously this answer will be different for each person. For some people it will be their pet (I really wish I could have a dog, a big, happy, slobbery, loves-me-like-no-other, dog, but our apartment doesn’t allow it…). For others it will be their friends or spouse or significant other. For some it will be their kids. For some it will be their books or their collection of artwork or memorabilia. For some it is flowers and colors and fabrics and rugs. That’s the beauty of it all! Your home should be a place that highlights what is most beautiful and useful to you. 

As you look at your home and think about what it is filled with, do you see the things that mean the most to you?
