E-News – December, 2022

Welcome to December 2022 edition!

I’m feeling blessed to have a cool end to the year, it’s great to have had a little more time to get the garden and house ready for the heat that is sure to come. Hope you’ve collected some seed for next year.

Turning our thoughts to sprucing up this enews, how does some new topics sound? Elements, Techniques and Design? Send me some Feedback please.

It would be wonderful to see all WA content so send me some words and a photo for the next edition, on the new topics or about Principles.

This little Christmas angel is made from Recycled coffee pods. Wishing all our readers a creative, happy holiday season. Enjoy!
