One of my fav artists!

Mary Engelbreit is just plain wonderful! I went to her website and she has some free things there for us! I picked one of her free backgrounds for my desktop that says:

"The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books"!

That statement is ME! You can find me sequestered away somewhere with a book, or a laptop..learning all of the time.

I hope you will go visit and see if Mary has something free for you also!

Hi Julie
Oh thats a cute desktop and nice tht the words are so suited to you. I really enjoy learning too especially online. Oh my I've learned so much blogging and it makes me look up other things as a result. Fun stuff too.

I will have to go and check it out. Thank you for letting us know. Enjoy your nice weather..:o) I hope your cornplant is doing well.

Judi- Mr. Corn plant is hanging in there right now! I read not to water too ofter...that over watering can be a big problem...and to wait until the soil is dry several right now it is just a matter of 2 weeks I will try a light application of fertilizer.

Isnt it the best thing in the world that we have such a huge vast library of everything on the planet right at our fingertips!

Yes I love her too, all so colorful and happy. I once bought a calender and after the year was over I never trew it away. The illustrations are so wonderful I couldn´t just trow it away!
Thanks for the link!

Cute Julie. I love my little nook too.

It's a very cute desktop... a little too cute for me, but I'm sure that Mary Engelbright isn't neccesarily shooting for the guy market LOL

I tend to think of her and some of the other artists... Holly Hobby, Debbie Mumm, etc... as a little to adorable. Or, to quote Oscar Wilde... "Just so utterly utter" But the sentiment does suit you perfectly.

That quotation reminded me of a quote I read a long time ago on Time magazine: Of all the arts in which the wise excel, nature’s chief masterpiece is writing well.

And here is another family site with lots of hints:
