Wishing You A MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."  ~Norman Vincent Peale

"Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance.  It may weave a spell of nostalgia.  Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved."
~ Augusta E. Rundell

Wishing you peace and joy this Christmas holiday season!

May the holidays and the coming year hold many joys for you...
good health, good friends and happiness...
and may all you wishes come true!

& Santa's little helper!

As 2012 comes to a close, I wish to thank all of you for your many comments of support and encouragement, and your shared enthusiasm, friendship and knowledge.  

I am taking the next two weeks off from blogging
 I look forward to our renewed friendships in 2013.  

"Here's to the bright New Year 
And a fond farewell to the old; 
Here's to the things that are yet to come 
And to the memories that we hold.


SEE YOU IN 2013!!


Artfully Yours, Laura Leeder

A Few Images From The November Art Show and Sale

"The one big gift each artist gives to the world is his or her uniqueness. We are all existentially alone, yet we try to reach out to others through our art, our writing or our music."   Brian Knowles

I had hoped to showcase a panel of each of the participating artists work, sadly, my photo taking skills were less than satisfactory and I was only able to rescue the few photos I have posted here.   

It was an enjoyable weekend, thank's to everyone who came out to see the show!  Many people commented on the wonderful variety of work on display and I have to agree.  Each artists work was unique and distinct.    

A very special "thank you" to the Images Art Group for inviting me to participate.

When the weekend was over, I picked up a viral infection and have been fighting it ever since.  This one is quite stubborn and while I am still struggling with it, I am finally feeling better today, hopefully, the worst is over!!  

Have a great weekend everyone, I will be back in the studio next week,
Artfully Yours,
