1. I am very excited about your year off of teaching! BUT (and a big but) I cannot imagine not seeing you for an entire year.

2. Cannot wait for the big tall book class in May!

3. You will have a fabulous weekend with three amazing friends, I'm a wee bit envious.

4. I decided that you're not a grandma... you're a GLAMra since you're so damn cute and glamorous!

Katie gentle soul dear heart:)It has been too long since I settled into your blog, resplendent with creativity and authentic stories from the heart. Since I can't invite you to tea, it is the next best thing. I am so happy for you regarding your decision to take a year off from teaching. I look forward to seeing the beauty that your year will hold. Sending you a big hug and a thank you for sharing your special spirit and your art.


Hello, Katie. Long time ;) Every time I visit, Violette has grown some more (I think her baby picture is stuck in my mind).

I'm struck by how much Lilyann resembles you!!

So many lovely reasons to give yourself a year.

You deserve the time off from teaching...besides, you wll come up with new and wondrous art in the meantime! Have fun creating with your friends.


I missed bumping into your at Artfest this year...hopefully I'll see you in Portland.

Lovely photos of the grandkids...especially the newest one.
