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...

hello Monday...looking back at a wonderful summer...

hello Monday... the kids are back in school and the season are rolling forward.

I love having a good summer to look back on. 
Sweet memories to take out as the schedule speeds up and rolls along to sports, and homework and the school year daily chores.  

Hello Utah and Bryce and Zion...Hello Arizona and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We loved visiting the National Parks with the kids.We Love the American West...We'd been there 17 years ago camping as newlyweds...
but bringing the kids back was something we've wanted to do for some time.

Here are my fave pics from the trip.  
They are also some of the very few I have...my camera broke mid-trip. Sigh.

 Hello slickrock in Zion...
 Hello 8.5 mile hike up the Narrows in Zion...
 Hello to the cowboys who took us down the North Rim on mules...

Hello to doing the silly vacation-y things you do when you travel...

Hello Cedar Breaks and 1,600 year old Bristlecone Pine...

Hello hoodoos & Bryce...maybe my fave of them all...

And hello Dawn...you know I love you...what a sweet treat to be with you and your family at the end of the vacation... hope to see you soon xoxox

Hello Monday...hope it's a good week for all of you...

I know I will see some of you in OHIO!!!

I cannot believe the FAIR IS THIS WEEK!!

take note...Nancy Wiley's painting again...

 Nancy Wiley is incredibly talented...
I am so thrilled she is painting again, and we have some incredible original oils  to share with you....

More are coming in late September...so stay tuned...
and do hope you love them as much as I do....


 I am grateful to Nancy for the opportunity to work with her to share them with you...here are some of my very faves among all the wonderful works...
This oil features a sweet girl in a crown...so ethereal and sweet...
 This Red Riding Hood just sends me...I love the drenched colors and expression..
 ...this one was done in her garden....

 And the farm boy is just fabulous...

Nancy has also added some cards to her current offerings...these feature some of her most renowned works, and a peek at her Wonderland book too.
 






 These are available in very, very limited quantities 
and start at just $5 for a box of 6 cards...
 Thanks to all of you for your support of Nancy and her artistry...as many of you know, I know Nancy for more than 15 years as a friend and colleague in the doll world, but it's only in the past year that we have been able to work together via Earth Angels Studios, and for this I am so very grateful...
xxoo Jen
