The winter holidays were extra special for me this year because four very generous online friends were willing to share their own stories of Winter Holiday celebrations and traditions in Japan, Poland, Estonia and Italy.

I completely understand how much work and thought and time went into the pictures and words that made up each story. I am grateful beyond words.

A Valentine to My Daughter


Happy Valentines Day to my beautiful daughter Diane and my handsome Grandkitty, Pushkin!

In giving me the this little blog-ship so that I could venture out into internet space - specifically the crafty blogiverse, Diane has given me two most excellent gifts: connections with amazing, brilliant, talented friends, and opportunities for learning and exploring new ways to express myself artistically.

I have never kept my appreciation a secret!
