I Feel Blessed....

As this year draws near to a close, I feel so grateful that I have chosen a path that allows me to share my talents and spread smiles via my art to so many others. Beyond that, I feel blessed that so many of you anticipate my art sales and are willing to add and collect my one of kind creations! Yet, only a few years ago, that goal was but a dream, and now those dreams have manifested.... It brings me great joy to create, knowing that each piece of art will find a home and that my holiday folk art will become a family tradition for generations to come. Thank you all for your loving support and for allowing me to do what I was meant to do :)

Before I say goodbye to my last collection of holiday characters for this year, I spent the day taking their portraits in various locations within our home.... Here are a few of the photos... ENJOY!

Hi Johanna, I just LOVE looking at all of your beautiful creations! One of these days when I become rich and famous (uh-huh...) I'd like to own one of your originals.

Anyway, I know you've been tagged already, but I just had to tag you, too, for the MeMe tag game.

Hello Johanna. I met your mother via email the other day. She purchased a DVD from me. Anyway, I wanted to tell you that she is a very proud mom, and gave me your website to look at. She's right, you are talented. Your creations are just wonderful. Just thought I would pop in and say hi!
