“Good Morning”! in Red

Good day, friends, and welcome to Leisure Lane…

Get your cup of tea or coffee ready, and relax while you visit.  Today I’m joining Rednesday with Melody at Brown Gingham Creation.  To celebrate her first Rednesday hosting, Melody is having a giveaway.  So if you like red, stop by and have some fun.  I’m having some fun lately using my art and photos for creating some wonderful card ideas.  Let me know if you have a favorite as I post them.  I always appreciate feedback.

Thank you for all of your support in my endeavors.  I appreciate your friendships and visits.  It’s always good to see you.  May your day be filled with sunshine no matter the weather.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Tea and Friends

Teapot - good friendsHello friends,

You are invited to join me for a cup of tea while we visit Terri at Artful Affirmations for Teacup Tuesday.  Terri was one of the very first lovely ladies to welcome me in blogland.  Thank you, Terri.  And while you’re there, pop over to say hello to Martha, Terri’s tea-time partner.


I’ve been working on a couple of projects…sketching out the illustrations for the first of the Penelope Pumperschnook story book and paper doll series, and I recently recreated the cover for my second novella, “The Heart of Annie…The Strength of God.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Merry Christmas, Friends

This past year I have been most blessed to become more intimately acquainted with some beautiful and creative women bloggers.  So to all of my ‘old’ and ‘new’ friends, I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a most happy New Year.  May this season shower you with God’s greatest joy, peace, abundance, and Love now and forever more.


Beautiful towels, hand embroidered by my paternal grandmother, and given to me with love when I was a young girl.


Thank you all for sharing a part of yourself with me.  Your love, enthusiasm, support, encouragement, and friendship has made my heart glad, and has given me a chance to expand my capacity to see, hear, and love with more clarity.

God bless you all…and until next time, may happy days abound!
