I love creating art. I love the Creator! And through that love, I find a little slice of heaven on earth and I give Him all the glory! It's a great adventure and I'm excited to see what's around the bend! Come join me, won't you?

I Choose Joy

~~~ I Choose JOY ~~~
I will invite God 
to be the God of circumstance.
I will refuse 
the temptation to be cynical... 
the tool of the lazy thinker.

I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God.  
I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God, and to choose... Him.

  Thank you, Jesus, for choosing to go to the cross 
so we could have joy everlasting.

am EXCITED and privileged to have my quilts, scarves and pins featured at our local GALLERY 16 through the month of March.  I hope you will join us tonight at the Gallery.  The opening is at 5:00 pm.  It's a dream-like state for me.  God give me grace for tonight's event!   I'm so ... incredibly thrilled, and honored to be THERE - "THE Gallery!"
I have so long admired this group of women artists who started this non-profit organization years and years ago.  Through their hard work and commitment, many people have seen beautiful, incredible talent of many artists.  It is where I first discovered Cynthia St. Charles.  If you don't know of her, she is a Billings, MT artist, and her fiber and quilt art was a featured cover on Quilting Arts magazine a few years ago; 2009 I believe.  April.  Visit her website here.  Her blog is also on my sidebar in case you'd like to visit. You won't be disappointed, I promise!

THANK YOU to Gallery 16 for this honor.   I know I am not alone in thanking God for the opportunities, and the doors He opens up for me to be able to pursue this artful passion of mine.  I have had so many people who pray for me daily, who are near and dear in the family of Christ; who support me in so many ways.  My heart fairly leaps outside itself!!

Just a few snapshots of some of the pieces available at the Gallery:
