I chose Inspired by Joy because I am inspired by the beauty in simple creations. Most everything I create I find in God’s magnificent Creation.  All nature speaks a language of beauty and truth. I live in a beautiful part of WNC and the mountain landscape is different every day.  I have seen days where fog looked like it was napping in the arms of the mountain and another day where double rainbows wrapped their arms around those same mountains. I especially love children and animals. I love horses and rabbits and birds and try to bring that joy to my creations. I love Light and candleLight. I especially love flowers and often have fresh flowers in our home. My wonderful Mother passed away in 2015 and this blog is my tribute to her and the life she help to inspire.
