Onward with my first page of the new year, which is a bit of a celebration for myself and the very talented Terri Kahrs of Pringle Hill Studio. I first saw Terri's work in 2011 when I joined the Calendar Art group. I loved her lively and colorful calendar pages, so I wandered over to her blog where I found more wonderful pages! She certainly had style. Then something awful happened and Terri's husband had major heart surgery. For much of the year Terri did very little art until her husband was nursed back to health. It was a blessing to read her messages about her husband's improvement and to see her begin her art again. But the one thing she never did, in all that time of caring for him and leaving her art behind, was wallow in self pity. Her gratitude was obvious in every post. She was grateful to God and grateful to her friends, and to her family. I think she's downright amazing and I'm so happy that her husband has healed and Terri is creating once again!
I wouldn't have attempted this a year ago, but I like Terri's style so much that I had to try it for myself. This was a fun page to do using flowered napkins and a free graphic from Terri's site. A sad imitation at best, but definitely made with love.
