April... : )

It's a gorgeous day over here in California..I cannot complain one bit as this is one of those fine Spring days that you just can't help but reflect upon. This morning, there was an amazing pattern of airplane trails in the bright blue reminded me of the crisscross of an apple pie. : )
If you have a moment, check out my group blog's wonderful April post..
the ladies (Julissa, Nina, Cally, Bee and Jennifer) over at have created a fantastic range of FREE downloadable Easter fun! Here is my contribution:

Also, I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Martina of and she has graciously posted it on her blog. Please visit her blog for fantastic interviews of artists from around the world. Thanks Martina!

Back to work I go...thanks for taking the time to pop on by. Have a lovely April ahead!
