**************************************


The blog has been a wonderful journey for me, In the time I have been doing this, about 4 years. I have shared with whoever was looking and listening. The writings , poetry and artwork come from my heart and the experiences I have had in my life. Lots of things, the front porch article, the picnic article, I hope that while this is in it's 400 posts you would take some time to go back and read and look at all this has been to me and hopefully you too. I have tried to share methods for things I have learned on my own. I hope these have been useful to you. I know we don't always have an abundance of money for out art projects so the majority of my methods are inexpensive. I love poetry and have put in my favorites or excerpts from them for your enjoyment. I have met some wonderful artists and seen some art that was mind boggling. I am a novice in comparison to some of these talents. I love what I do and love knowing I can add to this everyday. So my only message on this 400 post day is if and when you have time come and visit -go back and back and back and share this journey with me. Hugs to you all Betty

Hi Betty -

This is such a beautiful piece of art. I love all the details you've added, gorgeous. Congratulations on your 400th blog post. I love visiting your blog. Thank you for your tutorials, your downloads, your poetry. I also want to thank you for your wonderful selection of music.
