I have so much to be thankful for this year. In August, this was hard to see, but your lovely cards and messages of many different kinds have been so uplifting and wonderful reminders to stay positive. So, a BIG thank you to all of you for sharing your kindness and taking the time to pass on such needed words of encouragement. They have made me stronger so that I am able to be a more help to my mother. 
When someone is going through cancer, little things seem to make an incredible difference. One of those things has been making chemo caps for my mom out of pretty scarfs and handkerchiefs. I also took the time to make some art-teaching aprons for the coming semester's Studio Art class. Those Frida fabrics were a wonderful surprise.

I am honor to be a sponsor for a podcast on The Little Yellow Couch. Since I discovered the site, I've enjoyed listening to the stories of so many artists, crafters, decorators and many that thrive through creativity. It's since been a wonderful source of inspiration.

Introducing the Honey Label and Celebrating Ribbons

I finally finished the label design for my honey jars. The bees have been busy bringing in the honey. I only harvested a frame to taste and my dad said that "it tastes better than any honey" he's ever tasted. That's a dad for ya.
Now for a bit of a confession. I have a ribbon obsession.. the older the better.. velvet, silk, satin, cotton, plaid.. you name it, I love it. So, to celebrate this wonderful obsession, I painted Chanel ribbon, one of my favorites.

It's so very exciting to see the arts grow in access in Oklahoma. This past week I had the opportunity to see some the artwork of some of my heroes at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. It was such a dream to stand so close to the paintings and take in all those details that are missed when artwork is photographed- the layers of paint, the subtle textures and true colors.
