Grateful maple leaf

Although I’ve seen several of examples of this tree-as-leaf image, my friend Cindy Elam stamped the very first one I saw!  This is my October camp version. The base of that leaf is a piece of Thick Whisper White that’s been … Continue reading

Christmas Joy

A flourishing note

We’re in the middle of several sweltering, miserable days.  The humidity is 99% but we needed rain badly until a storm roared through last night.  You’d think after living my whole life in the same state and pretty much the same … Continue reading
