Reflections of 2010

So as the year comes to an end, I took a little time to reflect on this year's events.
I have much to be grateful for....

  My hard work and creative strides have resulted in some large accomplishments. 

Transitioning my focus from functional ceramics back to art and design has been quite an undertaking. 

And yes, stressful on my family. 

Always a "half full"  kind of girl...I see the light!  And yes, the new year looks bright. 

Finding a focus through my camera again and journaling this year has been a such a gift!  

I have always said my children are my true "masterpieces". 

Capturing their moments this year has been a treasure.

So I celebrate them in every holiday card I create.  I am excited to share this years design!

Thank you to my children, my supportive husband and family. 

It is because of your support that I can be a creative soul and follow my passion.  

Happy Holidays and here's to a bright new year filled with promise and possibilities!
