Super Star

With all the support I've  received this year from so many people, I feel like a Super Star.
Thank you, a big Thank you

This was my busiest year as an artist.
I hung my art in two different locations, I bravely set up a tent at a summer art festival & ended the year with two craft shows. 
I find it interesting that most of my sales are to people that know me or have rated with me. When strangers come up, I think they feel unsure of all that on my table. I think its a little similar to how people have reacted to me all my life, unsure, that is until they spend some time with me  :  )
Maybe that's how it is for you too.
I have had endless computer problems for well over a year now and because of my sweet man Mike and wonderful in laws, I am now the owner on a mac desk top with a 17" screen :  )
I'm so looking forward to learning all that I can about using this to help me along the way with my art.

I was also treated to a pair of Uggs  :  ) For a girl that has always been cold...they are the best for warmth!
Thanks to my friend DiNunzio, a year ago I started keeping my heat at 64 during the day, 62 at night and when guests were over 66. Over last winter I saw our heating bill go from near $300. down to $80.
Put a sweater on.

I'm off to Texas this week to see my sister Hillary graduate with her masters. I'm looking forward to seeing her new home along with spending some time with Hill and Paul. While I'm there I will be doing a painting for their bedroom :  )

I'm pretty much done with holiday shopping, I do my best to keep it simple.

Most of the photos from above are from years ago  

Have a great day!
