the making/assembling of my cards

2011 has been a super busy year for me and a real good year, too!

on display:  cards made by my {artists} friends. 
Thank you Suzan Kraus, Sara Bowen, Ronnie Ayliffe!
I feel so fortunate to have had reasons to get on the roll for all sorts of tasks, tasting and celebrating some great highlights in my family's growth and my work's development and recognition.

In responding to a multitude of life's demands, I had to travel to well known and also to new places that fascinated and inspired me, I got to know and learn new ways, and most importantly I met new friends and reconnected with people I had lost touch and now I am thrilled to have found again.

Blogging introduced me to kindred spirits in far lands, art and creativity made the distances disappear and precious friendships have been formed that I hope will grow further in the year ahead.

Just before 2011 ends I want to thank all fellow bloggers, artists, followers, friends for the kind comments, the friendship and inspiration you are giving me and to wish good health, joyful times, friendship and love in the new year about to begin. I hope 2012 turns out to be a great good year for everyone!
