JoDee – Blossom & New Website


If you think that starting a new website is daunting –
Imagine having to rebuild an established site from the ground up!

That’s the challenge that artist JoDee Luna is currently facing.
She’s meeting that challenge head on, however, by
Launching her new site with this beautiful piece, Blossom!

The blossoms on the painting reminds me of God’s grace in our lives
That causes us to blossom, even in the most trying of circumstances.

Be sure to stop by and show JoDee your support by following her new blog!

Ramona – Flowers Whisper Card

Flowers Whisper Card

Have you ever needed to send a card
But found yourself unable to find the words
That expressed what was in your heart?

That was what inspired me to create Flowers Whisper.

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
