Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Once again it is time to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Your visits throughout the year have meant so much.  I just want to thank everyone for all the lovely comments as well as encouraging words.    May each of you be blessed with the joy of this special season. Hope to see you all in the New Year.

Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail.   My friend Debra Smith at  surprised me with this lovely handmade watercolor journal. She had wrote a little note that this book was for me to paint in...I will certainly do so. Debra creates so many wonderful works of art.   Very multi-talented and has been featured in Stampington and  Company's publications.   If you have never visited her at  I Paint   I hope you stop over and check out her lovely blog.  She has some gorgeous photos too that you won't want to miss. Speaking of an Unexpected surprise " And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born


Wishing everyone a lovely start to December and the blessed Christmas season.  Have a wonderful day.

The Lord is with you."  Luke 1:26-28 (NIV)
