Today I'm thankful for you my reader, my friends. You can't imagine how your comments and emails send me over the moon! I love writing, and I absolutely adore hearing from you! I am thankful for the new friends I've made through blogging. So wild that we can geographically be a million miles away and yet be as close as a click of the mouse! I love it! Thank you for supporting my artful journey as well! Creating art fills my soul so completely. I live for time in my studio when the world disappears for just a little while. I love sharing my studio with you! It's so much fun to create with others! Be on the look out for an online workshop with me next year! We can be in the studio together all the time! I love it! I love teaching and creating with you! Thank you to my precious ladies who paint on Monday nights and Tuesday mornings. Y'all inspire me every week to laugh more and paint better! Thank you!
Speaking of my artful journey! Have you started on that Christmas list yet? I've got a couple of shops you have to visit! I have painted angels on pine boards and put them in a few of my favorite places. If you live in or around Montgomery, you can find my angels at Candle Cabin. Candle Cabin is one of my favorite shops. Wendy, one of the owners has done an amazing job of filling her shop with beautiful gifts for any occasion. She carries everything from gorgeous jewelry, artwork, fine accessories, and of course, divine smelling candles. Candle Cabin is one of my "go to " stores for gifts. I never wander around wondering what to buy. On the contrary, there are so many wonderful things to purchase I have to keep going back!
You can also find my angels at Wrapsody in Auburn. If you have never been to Wrapsody you are in for a real treat. It is nestled in the heart of downtown Auburn on college street. Lindsey and her adorable staff have decorated the shop from top to bottom with Christmas trees covered in fabulous ornaments and my personal favorite, twinkling lights. When you enter the shop you are always welcomed with a sweet smile and warm hello. Wrapsody is filled with wonderful surprises on every shelf! So many of you have already found my angels beautifully displayed under the Christmas trees. Thank you for your sweet support! Wrapsody is the perfect place to complete your shopping list. They carry amazing gifts and accessories for your home. I never leave empty handed. There Christmas open house starts today and goes through the weekend. They are opening early and staying late so you can experience Wrapsody Chistmas for yourself!
