I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

Inspirational Place

I was invited by Cindy Adkins to join this wonderful blog party. Her timing could not have been more perfect. A part of my life has had sadness recently, and some days can be hard to get through. This is a very personal tragedy to someone close to me that I don't have the power to change, so I have put him in God's hands and pray for him everyday. The above bible verse was also my dad's, who passed 8 years ago. I carry this verse in my wallet as he did. I wrote it on a card and gave it to the person close to me in hopes he will read it often so he can find Christ again.

I too have difficulty sometimes remembering 'The Lord won't give you more than your shoulders can bear'.
