Published in Stampers' Sampler Spring 2014

For Spring break, I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to watch my grandson and his team (Charles Page High School SANDITES) play baseball.  When I arrived home, I found the Spring 2014 Stampers' Sampler lying on my art table.  I had six cards published!  Three of them are in the DPOV (Different Point of View) section.  It is always exciting to me to find that I have anything published in one of Stampington's fine magazines.  I photograph my art work before I send it off and as I look back over the photographs I often find myself thinking that none of them were of a quality to be published.  It is always a very pleasant surprise to see them actually in print!  Thank you, Stampington, for giving so many of us an opportunity for that 15 seconds of fame!  LOL

April 2014 Calendar page

My goodness!  It really is April!!!  When those cold winds were blowing the first part of March, April seemed to be a very faint vision of the future.  ")  But, here we are!  Daffodils are blooming, the blue birds are nesting, and gardens are being plowed.  I love this time of year, a time of renewal.  Our spirits need some encouragement after a loonnngggggg  winter.  My spirit soars when I take my daily walk to the river and see all the green popping out from the trees and tiny woodland flowers.  I find myself singing:  "Praise God from whom all blessings flow!"  How wonderful to be alive in Spring!

March 2014 Finished!

What happened to this month???!!!  Wow, I know I'm getting older and time seems to be whizzing by, but this month just disappeared on me!  The beginning of the month was so cold...... schools even closed.  Yesterday, the last day of March 2014, it was 77 degrees here in Oklahoma!  I've got itchy fingers that want to get outside and dig in the garden and flower beds!  LOL  Loving this sunshine!  Happy Spring everyone!
