Snow And Mo’

Luck was on our side. Roads were clear, and my brother and his wife were able to spend Thanksgiving with us. The snow started early on Friday, and by noon, it was sunny and calm. Perfect weather for a snowball fight before they headed back to Phoenix. I watched it from inside the warm!

We had about 4 inches, Prescott had double that.

These hills are almost back to green now. I love how the snow reveals hidden details. Mingus is still covered. The roads are dry, and the yard is half melted. It doesn’t last long, usually. My kind of snow!

Now for the Mo’

I am having a fabulous kick-off to December! I was featured in last week’s ALL ABOUT YOU. Janine Vangool’s weekly newsletter. It is always chock full of creative inspiration. Color me happy. 🙂 Click on the link if you would like to sign up. She has open calls for submissions.

Friday I opened an awesome surprise email. My good friend Chandra Lynn honored me with a feature on her blog, Pics And Posts. Along with my piece of art, she shared her own, and also one by my good friend Christine Brooks! Tres Amigas! Chandra’s posts are always heartwarming, inspirational and often gorgeous. I have learned so much from her and sometimes find myself in tears. The GOOD kind. Thank you, Chandra, for sharing your JOY!

Last week I took part in Louise Gale’s “heART Exchange“. I sent out three handmade postcards and will receive 3 in return. I was having so much fun, I made a couple of extras for friends.

I am so in love with these colors right now. I kept playing, and a have a handful in the works. Haha. I also spent a couple of days on a small tree. Just some creative late-night play. I am almost out of Green Gold. Haha.

      It is very NEON at times isn’t it Sea? LOL 🙂 I learned about that color from Angela Fehr. So glad you enjoyed the photos 🙂

    Sheila, WAY AWESOME START TO DECEMBER, my friend! I am buoyed by your current color palette—it’s the perfect antidote to a long run of barely interrupted gray here in my neck of the woods. I’m further nourished by the looseness of your landscape postcards and their related 4×4’s!

      I am elated and elevated by your generous evaluations! Thank you, Dotty 🙂 It is grey and dark here today. Thought it might snow, but it is just cold and damp. Not raining, just damp. LOL. Wishing you sunny days!
