It's been a year since I brought home my beautiful blue and white motorhome from Florida.  It was heartbreaking to trade in my Class C Freedom Express but I felt that I needed to downsize - however, I do still miss it.

I haven't done much camping in the new motorhome this year.  Starting a new business has kept me home a lot as well as some health issues.  I'm hoping that I will be able to get out on the road much more in 2015.

I am enjoying providing my K-Nine Sitting Services in my home and have cared for some beautiful dogs in the last 8 months.  It's an easy job that allows me time to also continue creating my art in my studio.  I never dreamed I'd ever have a place and time in the day to creat art.  It would have been wonderful to have started this trend when I was young.  Who knows where that would have led on my career path.  Creating is my one true passion and I look forward to it every day.

As this year comes to an end, I'm looking forward to a better year ahead.  I am hopeful that my artwork will receive some recognition in my community in the near future.  I will have my first showing in a museum this coming April.  Folk Art is not welcome at our local Art Guild and have had no luck in promoting it at other venues.  However, it is coming into it's own and I may receive more recognition this coming year. 

I have found several local Facebook pages that provide a place for a person to sell whatever they want and it is free.  You have to become a member and they are monitored closely.  One site has close to 40,000 members and others have between 2,000 and 5,000.  I have started posting some of my artwork and have had some interest shown. 

 As for my health, I'm holding my own but have some days when I really feel my age and my various illnesses.  I keep pushing on and am determined to improve my condition more so in the coming new year.

My little Shih Tzus are my constant companions and bring me much joy in life.  I'd be lost without them.   

Gotta go now.  Taking the Tzus for a ride in the RV.  We're going to get gas ($2.29 a gallon) for our trip next week to the Grand Isle State Park.


  1. Time has a way of flying right past us. I hope your health issues fade away and you have a wonderful year of travel.
    I love your art and will go check out the FB posts. I also am wishing you the best in your art world.
    Happy Holiday and a very Prosperous New Year
