Thirdly, that I am able to continue to grow as a scholar, so that I may in turn be a better teacher.
God willing, my wishes will continue to come true.

In closing, I want to thank everyone that left a comment on my post last week regarding Lisa's and my wedding anniversary.  It was truly heartwarming and we felt VERY blessed.  Vaya con Dios - Go with God!


...a richly diverse posting the textures on Rozlyns card and the delicate detail in your micron pen artwork and your aged photo is beautiful, the smiles of your daughters captured for eternity (don't you just love technolgy) indeed a timeless portal within that moment and I love the story book effect on your Tag Tuesday tag...
Thank you for dropping by me your warm wishes were greatly received...Mel :)

I am glad your wishes are becoming fulfilled. I know you will continue to keep striving as that is the kind of man you are. I know you have been teaching me so much when I visit and I leave better than when I arrive. I love the piece you made for your daughter's b-day. It will be a treasured keepsake for sure. Your postcard had me amazed as I just adore tea and that cup with all your fine hand done detail grabbed me. I love following Anel's journey in her book. She is so precious.

Hey Arnold - loving your tag Tuesday alphabet series with the lovely Anel. I haven't been able to play for a few weeks and was lacking inspiration as I know I wouldn't have much spare time this year but I saw your lovely zentangle card via Simon Says Stamp and you gave me inspiration so I am going to try to catch up with the tags and post next week - Thank you team mate Helen x

Blessing Arnoldo to you and your lovely family. I too can't believe that January has gone and left us already until next year. But it's good to take stock at the end of each appreciate the gifts we were given.
Your teacup is wonderful ~ my favourite I think. But your other artwork and beautiful photograph are stunning too.
Happy Belated Anniversary...sorry I missed sending my best wishes earlier.
Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a wonderful week whatever you get up to. :D

Oh Arnoldo, you live life with such joy and faith - I am inspired! Your art is a natural extension of your heart and it is beautiful. The Opus Gluei project is perfect with just the amount of bling you've used. Your other projects make my mouth drop open. I would love a hint of this talent you have in such abundance. AMAZING!
