November note from Dianna

I am very busy planning a memorial for my husband and will also be hosting Thanksgiving for my family.  We are having a community memorial gathering on the Saturday evening following Thanksgiving.  I am working on the photo display, videos and music every day to make sure I don't get too stressed as the time gets closer. This is cutting into my painting time and slowed progress with orders.  I am over half way through  working on the many orders from May 2013.  After May there are fewer orders each month so I hope to catch up rapidly.  I have nothing on my schedule after the memorial until April when I am supposed to go to Australia to teach at a doll making convention.  I expect to get caught up during that time.

  • Dearest Dianna,
    I would also like to add my prayers for you and your family during this "family-get-togethers time of the year" and ask that the Lord hold you very close in His arms during these next few months. You have such strength and courage and are so filled with love for your customers, even when you probably don't feel like it. May the Lord give you all that you are lacking each new day when you rise up.
    Blessings, Jeanne in IL
