As you have probably figured out by now, one of my greatest passions is to drag as many of you as possible along on my art quilting journey 😂 I have lots of plans for this year, here are a few of them:
As I work on next year’s plans, I’m trying to be mindful to not overpack the schedule. (Photo of one of my favorite gifts below, to remind me to slow down 😂 The branch in my studio is perfect!) I hope you are also leaving space for taking care of yourself and your families. And of course, to be creative! I heard someone this week who is a full time artist say they decided at one point to prioritize painting for at least 25 minutes per day. Now, wouldn’t you expect someone who is a full time painter to automatically do far more than that? But I totally got it, if I’m not careful, I can go weeks without making anything! So I hope you will carve out creative space for yourself this year too. Put it on the schedule or it won’t happen! (Preaching to myself… 😅)
Happy New Year, and let the card making begin! Beret

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!

They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
