Farewell 12 days of Textures

We made it!! We have reached the final day of our 12 day texture party. It was truly an amazing gift for me!! I have felt so connected to you all throughout this.

Today's texture is called Friday. Click HERE to download it.

Thank you for stopping by, saying hi...sharing yourself... reading my story... sending love... and oh my gosh... signing up for the Beyond Layers class!! I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I am with the response. It's going to be completely inspired! 

When I was making notes for the course, I wrote... 'the perfect people will sign up for this class.' I truly believe that with all my heart. As your registrations pop into my email, each name makes me smile and sigh... a happy, happy sigh.

I just had to use this quote brush with Cather's wise words....... It's so true and powerful..... Don't you think?

Thank you...... I am most grateful for all of you!

And so, for now, I will long, my friends.... I will be back after Christmas..... 

I hope you find joy this season.... 

If you are struggling right now... if things are hard... I send this thought to you...with love... 
Don't lose faith... Please... dig deep and find a little morsel of hope to hang onto.... one day at a time.... 



I am sharing thoughts on happiness at Shutter Sisters today. I'd love to see you there.


TK Members, did you grab your brushes and textures?

Thank you for this pre-xmas time.
It's been a gift. day at a time..
reminded me of what you wrote somewhere:
"one drawer at a time",
which has become a much quoted household word in our home :-)

It's still Christmas here at the coast so had to wish you a Merry Christmas one more time before it's tomorrow.

Thank you for these wonderful Christmas presents .. these textures are sweet!
Thank you for sharing you, your heart, your life, your talent. You are of great value.

May your new year be filled with your dreams!

Sorry, I wanted to be here earlier but we had a power failure today so it threw a wrench into getting online.
I was hoping to get in on your offers so I'm still going to try.

Be well and enjoy your holidays with your wonderful family.

Thank you.xoxo
