Happy Monday and a Call for Artists!

Good morning...how was your weekend? If you're a MOM, I hope your Mother's Day was extra special. :)

This photo of my Mom and me was taken yesterday at a local Rhododendron garden. We had such a nice time! My husband was in one of his really goofy moods and I treasured the time with my Mom. My Mom is seriously the most positive and upbeat lady you will ever meet. Her life has not been easy and yet she continues to inspire me to look on the positive side of things, to keep my faith strong in the tough times, and to persevere. She is young at heart and I think she always will be! It's funny...when we were at the gardens she asked me if I ever "skip" anymore. As I demonstrated my fine skipping skills (lol) she proceeded to try it as well. She's so cute.

Anyways, welcome to a new week of ARTIST SPOTLIGHTS!!! By the way, this week we will be finishing off a month-long series of artist spotlights and, as of today, I'm putting out a call for more artists. Thankyou so much for your contributions this month, Artists! What an honor it's been for me to feature you. :)

Have a great new week! See you here tomorrow with an "I Create Interview" with Irena Sophia. Oh, and please leave comments for the artists to win this beautiful print from Lynda Naranjo! I'll announce the winner this Wednesday.
