That Was Then, This Is Now

Happy New Year 2018! What a difference a year makes! This time last year I was celebrating a brand new studio redo. That Was Then In all honesty, the room really never stayed like this - it's a working studio after all and I tend to make "creative messes."  It was certainly colorful!

(Photo Credit, Eric Overton, Dickinson Texas after Hurricane Harvey) How do I say thanks to the many people who have influenced my life this past year? With tears in my eyes, actually.  This wasn't exactly the post I had planned for today but in going through photos of 2017  I knew this had to be my… Continue reading It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times

I remember seeing "angel trees" in the mall where you took home the name of a family in need and shared of your abundance.
