May is such a lovely time of year and perfect for celebrating our dear mothers. Mothers should be loved and honored year round, but this upcoming mother's day is an extra special moment to let her know all she has been to you. This year take time to write a sweet note commemorating your life with her and all she means to you. Send or give it to her along with flowers and a small gift celebrating the day. For those of us whose mother are gone it is a special time of reflection and honoring her memory whether it is cooking her favorite recipe, looking through old photos or lighting a candle for her. However, you celebrate enjoy the day.

This fused art glass I designed using some of my artworkk is a really beautiful piece. It is a special gift for Mother's Day or any time. The Sacred Hearts, lilies and surrounding art are vivid in color and wonderfully lumniscient.
During this time it is so important to tell your mother how wonderful she is and thank her for all she has done. Write a lovely note and express your appreciation and mention things that she has done that have made life even better. Enclose it with this special fused art glass so she has a beautiful symbol of your love and of how wonderful you think she is.

I am inspired by our cityscape in New Orleans and enjoy photographing around the city. Beauty is everywhere. St. Louis Cathedral is especially lovely. I have photographed it so many times over the years and in so many ways. This piece is a detail of one of the spires along with a striking black old lantern standing sentry in front. Bring the wonder of your favorite city into your home with art from my collection. It will brighten your day.

Keep in touch with those you love with more than a phone call or text. Send a card with a lovely sentiment to brighten these long days. Getting a card from someone in the mail is always fun.
These festive Bunny Trail ones are perfect for this time of year. Ringing in Spring
with its oversized rabbit and bright flowers. It is a large 5x7 flat card so great to write on with an envelope big enough to also tuck a bookmark, photo or little memento and send it on its way. You can also use as a postcard if you prefer.
Take a look at these and other cards using my artwork in my online shop. Your support of small business and creatives like me is greatly appreciated.
Hoping these beautiful sunny days find you well. Love to all.

While you get cozy with your coffee and a book be sure you have a beautiful bookmark from theRDBcollection to use. It makes a great little happy or gift with a book too.
The pictured bookmark is the Blessings from Laveau. It is a beautiful bookmark using art from my New Orleans cemetery collection. The brick wall with the famous X-markings is where people make wishes or ask favors of Marie Laveau.
More bookmarks are on the website. Choose from traditional 2x6 bookmarks and petite 2x3 ones with plastic holders.
It's a lovely way to mark the page you're reading.
