Happy Holidays everyone...and see you soon!

I want to wish you all a joyous, love-filled, healthy holiday season and New Year. You have all been a huge part of my world, this past year. I had re-surfaced with this blog and it has been a great outlet for creativity and
self-expression. Your feedback has always been supportive and loving. I love this community and how we back each other up and share, and I have met so many kindred-spirits. That is what blogging is all about. It is a wonderfully supportive place to be. Thank you all!  ~ I wrote this and more originally knowing that I was planning on taking a break between Xmas and New Year's. I want to spend time with my kids while they are on winter break and want to recharge, renew and otherwise work on special projects, gearing up for the new year...then ...life happens
I had prepared this post early this morning and it took me all day to get it posted, as my children have caught a stomach virus and have been ill for hours now. I am praying I am able to escape it as Moms can't get sick when needing to take care of their kids.  
f i n g e r s    c r o s s e d ...

I had hoped to make my rounds to all of your blogs and return emails but it seems I may not be able to before the holiday. Please know I send you the very best of wishes for a perfect holiday! 

Merry Christmas! ~ Happy New Year!
much love & peace

See you soon!

Happy Holidays to you and your family, Calli! I hope the kids are over their stomach virus now....such a rotten time of year to get sick, poor things. I hope you also escape the virus yourself so that you can all enjoy some quality time together.

Oh Dear Calli-Girl, I hear about you now and then, and want to say--I received a most treasured gift today.

Recently you gifted me with RED, and also a water-color print of a farm scene. Anna surprised me with a frame and I just hung it right over the top of my monitor.

I'll send you a photo, or maybe I'll blog it, like it IS a gift, given twice...

It made me a happy camper.

I LOVE your work these days. Enjoy some "family" time, in peace
and I'll be waiting with everyone else for your return.
