Do you still mail holiday cards to friends and family?
But I must confess, I struggle with throwing out the ones I receive…
The cards are so beautiful and I enjoy the family photos…
It is a sentimental season for me. How about you?
What do you do with all the cards and photos at the end of the season?
I look forward to your creative ideas!
Happy Holidays! 🙂
My neighbor grows beautiful flowers in her yard. She recently brought me this fresh bouquet that brightened my day!
I decided to sit outside and paint it in watercolor.
I had an unexpected visitor who was buzzing with happiness!
I am pleased how this painting turned out and plan to give it to my neighbor as a thank you for her kindness.
Whose day can you brighten with a little unexpected kindness?

My husband and I had to travel to Detroit, Michigan recently.
I messaged my blogging friend, Patty Anne who I knew lived in the area for suggestions on good restaurants.
Not only did Patty Anne have some great food ideas, she rearranged her schedule so we could meet in person! I was thrilled!!
We met for dinner and each of us brought an art journal or two to share. We had a blast! I so LOVE Patty Anne’s art!! Seeing her creativity in person was an extra special treat!
And speaking of treats, she made me this sweet little birdy in watercolor:
She even tied it with a bow and added a couple of her special flowers!
I am so touched by her kindness.
We were having so much fun that we forgot to take a photo of us together which just means we have to get together again!
I have been practicing art in “Patty Anne’s style” so I can make her a little gift.
Thanks Patty Anne for such an enjoyable evening. Your friendship across the miles was the highlight of my trip!
Cheers to Blogging Friendships! 🙂
PS. I do hope you check out Patty Anne’s art if you aren’t familiar with it! She paints with JOY!
