Exciting News x 2

fall tree 10-9-14Fall is really here!!!

So excited to see this beautiful maple tree (albeit in a parking lot) as I travel to and from work each day. The photo doesn’t do it justice but the leaves are all shades – green, yellow, brilliant orange and red.

 

Take a leaf art class with me!

I will be teaching a one night, two hour class to create a one-of-a-kind card/gift for the upcoming Christmas season through the Maryville Parks & Recreation Department. Learn more and sign up here:

Keep Our Bears Safe!

Remember to maintain a safe distance from the bears (and all wildlife) in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The bears are hungry and are feeding on the abundant fruits available to them.

Purple-y Day

pansiesToday seems like it should be a purple-y kind of day and I have just the right photo to demonstrate it. These bright pansies brighten my mood and encourage me on this chilly spring morning.

Hope you enjoy them, too!
