I’m so happy that my new book, Love Blooms in a Mother’s Heart: A Celebration of Motherhood, will be available in time for Mother’s Day.  While I wrote it to honor the memory of my own mother, who will be forever in my heart, it really speaks to all moms of every generation. For this book, I selected my favorite quotations and sayings about mothers, and surrounded each one with my watercolor art inspired by the garden. I hope this book will touch your heart and bring joy to the special mom – or moms – in your life!

Now you can win an autographed copy! We will be accepting entries now thru May 5th. A winner will be chosen at random and sent an autographed copy of the book, just in time for Mother’s Day. CLICK HERE to enter!


 

 

 


We had a great day volunteering at the Jarrett Nature Center in Horsham, PA yesterday! It was a perfect day to be outside helping out and celebrating Earth Day. We mulched, we dug out weeds, and organized supplies. It was a feel good day!

Join us on Friday for our “Going Green” Eco-Art Show. 15% of the proceeds from all retail sales will be donated to the Jarrett Nature Center. Click here for more details.


April is here, with its promising signs of renewal! And this year, both Easter and Earth Day happen in April, so there’s plenty to celebrate. After the bitterly cold and grey winter we’re emerging from here in Pennsylvania, it’s fun to see all the wonderful sights that accompany springtime, Easter and Earth Day. Bunnies and chicks. Pastel Easter eggs. Graceful tulips and fragrant hyacinths. In fact, just the sight of new leaves on trees and grass turning green again is enough to lift my spirits!  

Here in our Scatter Joy Gallery, we’re celebrating Earth Day with a special show called “Going Green,” which will feature our Studio designers’ own works of eco-conscious art.  The show is all about art that’s inspired by – and at the same time, respectful of – the earth, and I can’t wait to see what our people will come up with.

Easter is also a time to renew our connections – with family and friends we care about. To help you do just that, our collection of Easter cards features uplifting messages and art.  Our Easter palette is especially joyful and expressive – from the soft lavender, aqua, pink and green of decorated Easter eggs to the exuberance of sunny orange and yellow daffodils and daisies, from the delicate beauty of whisper pale butterfly wings to pristine pink and white apple blossoms. You’ll find our cards in any store that carries American Greetings cards and our local retail gallery.

Why not pick up a few greeting cards to let those special people know you’re thinking about them? Sharing the joys of the springtime season is a wonderful way to brighten someone’s day!
