I was able to find out who they were when they ordered a pack of my “I Give My Tears” note cards and I was able to also send them a “Lizzy the Leatherback” book to have in their facility. Please consider supporting them.

When Lizzy gets a mysterious illness, she turns to her pals for help and comfort. But they only make things worse! Discouraged and alone, Lizzy wants to give up . . . until Danny shows her the healing power of true friendship.
This 48-page picture book has a great message for children and adults alike on the meaning of friendship and loyalty. But the book also has a special purpose. The author, Mike Hamel, is a cancer survivor and wrote Lizzy to help kids battling with disease or disabilities better understand the relational side of what they’re going through.
Peaking at our house through the fall colors. I am not use to waiting so long into the season for the Fall colors to start showing up. This past week we noticed more of the Fall season breaking through with beautiful colors.
Here is a small portion of my art table with a beautiful view out the window. I am very excited about settling in and becoming productive. Working on the illustrations for the new book.
I would have never thought I would end up in Arkansas – ever! But here we are settling into a beautiful home South/West corner of Arkansas. Our home sets out in the country with 23 acres of trees, fields, and plenty of quietness and I have plenty of room for an Art Studio. We are almost finished with unpacking our belongings that have been in storage for four and a half years. I am finding many treasures that once graced our Colorado Mountain home and also many things we may never have to use again like, sleds, boots, and lots and lots of blankets, etc. We made it through our first summer in hot, humid weather now and surprised at how long it takes to have winter come around here. It is very sad that we won’t enjoy good snow as Winter comes around. In fact it is depressing and joked about being snow birds traveling to the snow instead of away from the snow. We are still enjoying flowers and green grass, this is really strange after living 27 years in Colorado. So, as I continue to find a place for all the things in our boxes including my art studio set up items, I will be settling in to paint, sculpt and create.
We are so very thankful for the year we spent in New Hampshire experiencing the New England states and atmosphere before moving here. That was a real treat! We will also really miss that part of the country.
I have spent the last five months working on new illustration for another children’s book while also unpacking and trying to settle in. The book is “Lizzy the Leatherback” by Mike Hamel and should be released very soon.
