big and wonderful and so very Meseroll

 
 ...had to share a peek at these amazing, huge and just arrived 
mixed-media folk art paintings from Laurie Meseroll. 

They are large and truly wonderful...
we had to get the whole crew involved to photo them!

This is the largest collection of large pieces I have had to date...
in all the time I have worked with Laurie...
and only two times before have I had such grandly scaled pieces...

I am smitten and had to share.












Thanks Laurie for these beauties...cannot wait to share them with the folks who can see them in person at the Atlanta Country Living Fair....
they are so much more exceptional in person!

hello Monday and HELLO BUSINESS STAR!!

I am so tickled...

Hello Monday...and what a wonderful week you will be. 
I am so very proud to share this news...

Letty Worley...my wonderful friend and uber talented soft sculpture artist of EarthAngelsStudios.com is featured in the  
10 PAGES!!!
Total wow...here's just a peek...you need to get the mag for the complete story on how Letty...how she started, failed, started again and how with determination and effort, she has persevered and 
truly come into her own with her art and inimitable style.




It all happened because Jo Packham, Letty and myself had a quiet breakfast in Texas this spring when we were guests of Holly Kuhn at the grand opening of her new "Old Glory" store in Burton during Round Top's Spring Antiques Week.

Letty had a chance to tell Jo her story, and Jo knew that this was a story that had to be told to her readers.

Hello happy timing and networking and wonderful women who share.

Hello to imagination and style...Letty you have got them both!


Hello to celebrating the small joys of the everyday...Letty you have taught so many of us that a cupcake can keep you going 
even when the going gets pretty darn tough!

Hello to hard work and late nights, long hours and much effort...
it's so wonderful when these are rewarded.

Hello week...you are going to be a busy one...hope you're rootin' for me...
the list of to-dos is about a mile long.

Hello to 8th grader's history project all over the table.

Hello pumpkin spice EVERYTHING!
 
Hello to all of you and what are you up to this week...
leave some hellos in the comments section...

xxoo Jen
