Little French Postcard in Color

I finally finished this one.  It was fun!

It’s countdown to Kansas City for me, so I’m going to be pretty busy the next few days.  Thursday morning, I head north for my six hour drive to Overland Park, KS.  I made the trip two years ago to visit my step-mom,  and it was a pleasant drive.  I’ll be spending a little time with her on Friday.   Fun!

Dodinsky is the author of the upcoming inspirational and reflective gift book IN THE GARDEN OF THOUGHTS, scheduled to be released Spring of 2013 by Sourcebooks Publishing(It’s out.  Get your copy here.)

His intent was simply to share his reflections about life in order to help heal the wounds inflicted by life’s troubles. At the time, the man known by his readers as Dodinsky had no idea that within months of starting his blog In The Garden of Thoughts, thousands of readers would find healing through the modest words he planted.  More at

I’m so excited!  My pre-ordered copy of In The Garden of Thoughts arrived Friday.  It’s wonderfully illustrated by Amanda Cass and it’s just beautiful!

    Best wishes on your KC show! I have been following your house series and love all of them. They would make great puzzles. I will be checking in to read your KC report. Have a wonderful trip!

      Thanks so much, Vickie! I hope everything is going good for you. I think of you often, wondering if you’re still pursuing art licensing. I haven’t given up, just took a brief detour. ((hugs))

    I wish I lived there. The purple road and sidewalks would rock my world.

    I love it! Will you make prints? Maybe we can trade postcard for postcard if you like one from my shop. 😀

    Have a nice drive! Don’t forget to check your oil! ;D

      Thanks, Cindy. Let’s “talk” when I get back. We can probably do some trading. My new jeep only has 14000 miles, so I’m feeling good about the oil. It’s my first road trip in it and I’m so thankful for all the space in the back, with the seat laid down. WoooHooo! Here I go! 🙂
