Hello again!

Hello All ~ It has been a while since my last post but I have been quite busy in the meantime! I have fulfilled a dream I have had of designing my own line of note cards. I have created two that are in print and I am in the process of drawing and designing more.

My artist friends and I constantly joke about how cool it would be to have clones of ourselves and then we could accomplish all that we want to get done LOL! I have so much on my plate with my own art and then custom work that I recieve it is hard to get everything done. I am anxious to get all of my work done so when spring arrives I can be outside gardening, which is my second love to painting and creating. I am hoping that waiting for spring won't be as painful as it has been in the past because I have so much more to work on in my studio than in years past.

Below are the new note cards that I have created. They are available for purchase on my site.

The top one is a drawing of my daughter and my friend's son. They were a little younger and have grown too much since! The card below is a drawing of my sister who passed away at the age of 19 from an illness she was born with. I love to draw her and it has been a healing process and wonderful memorial to her.

All of my drawings and paintings mean so much to me. I am afraid I may spend too much time on them, and they are invaluable to me. That is why am so lucky to be able to offer them in prints and note cards.

I will try and keep up on my posts and keep you informed on all of my projects. Soon I will be able to share my photos of my gardens again!

Have a wonderful blessed day! ~ Nichole
