Dream: Something wonderfulSomething wonderful landed in my mailbox recently. A dream come true, a Somerset Dream, my contributor copy...And were it not for all you sweet blog friends who suggested and encouraged me to send something in I would not be tucked within these pages, for without your support I would not have had the courage to reach for this dream. Thank you!A special thanks to Christen Olivarez and the staff of Somerset Life for the opportunity to appear within this outstanding publication. It truly is an honor to be in the company of so many wonderful and talented artists and sweet blog friends like Tina, Lisa, Karla, and Monica.Here is a peek at some of the stunning photography featuring my Itinerant Artist Kit and article...While I adore all of the titles that Stampinton & Co publish, Somerset Life is my favorite and it is such a treat to see my art kit in print here. I leave you with this thought, " I would thank you (all) from the bottom of my heart, but for you (all) my heart has no bottom." (Author Unknown) For each of you, my gratitude is fathomless.

Have a blessedly wonderful weekend!
