So, let's see if I can get ALL my news from the weekend out today.....maybe!!!

And of course, if I am done, it is time to start something else, right??? Well, here is what I am putting out now.....
Today's featured artist is: CabinHollow. For over 20 years this great artist has been creating with metal. From wall art to yard art is it very easy to see that each piece is created by hand and with the care of an artist. There are so many great items in this studio, it was hard to choose, but for some reason, this one caught my eye. Please go check out this amazing studio and look at all the great creations. Remember, always support handmade artists if you can, they create because they love to!!
Today I want to leave you with this thought;
Remember that just the moment you say; "I give up," someone else is seeing the same situation is saying, "My, what a great opportunity."
