With restrictions and staffing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, my rural Post Office is struggling to maintain service. They are working hard, with small town postmasters sharing and keeping open three different offices 40 to 60 miles apart.

Wishing you good health and hoping you stay safe in these unprecedented circumstances.

New Items at Pebbles At My Feet

As an artist, my mind is always full of color and design ideas, and my hands are usually busy to bring those to fruition. This often leads to what I call my “listing backlog”. I have a box next to my computer of pieces I’ve made and photographed, that are waiting for copywriting inspiration. I think I know why: 

Color Inspirations: The First Spring Wildflowers

A month before the aspen trees began to leaf and show their bright green colors against blue skies, the first wildflowers of spring emerged through gravel along roadsides and Ponderosa pine forests in South Park, Colorado.
