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.

On this thanksgiving...a prayer

“Come Lord Jesus, Be our guest,
And let Thy gifts to us be blessed,
And may our souls by Thee be fed,
Ever on the Living Bread. Amen.”

This meal prayer is considered the "Lutheran prayer". My grandparents said it at every meal, while my parents had a bit different version. A very old prayer that is was brought from Europe and spoke in German, and all of the Scandinavan languages too.

Hi, Debbi! Just wanted to come by and say hello before life gets too busy! I can't wait to hang up my stocking you made! I even have goodies to put in it this year!

Hope your Thansgiving wasn't as stressful as mine! Ha-ha! ♥
