And now that it has been 40 years since that 1st “popcorn prayer”, I can clearly see God’s hand in all of it. God used a practical need to get my attention, to a spiritual direction of my life. He moved it all at once, my calling in life’s work and his spiritual calling to me. He has directed my path since then, with the art business and my children. God has been waiting patiently for me to ask for help, before making it obvious that it was his hand that moved the direction needed.
Tucson Happenings is devoted to our local artists and have been publishing monthly artist profiles for years. This page will list many artists that have profiled since we went digital in May of 2015.

This folded-paper booklet is a great way to create useful little notebooks. Some of the many uses for these are Saving data (phone numbers, addresses, etc.) or for miniature collections of poems, stickers, or stamps. Another way to put them to use is to make miniature sketchbooks or coloring books that are easy to keep in a pocket. They can even be used for making mini pamphlets promoting your favorite causes.

Most of us grew up elsewhere, where Fall is an actual season and involves temperatures dropping, leaves turning colors other than green and sweaters and jackets getting used once the sun goes down. Well, this isn’t Kansas anymore, Dorothy! Here in Tucson, Fall is pretty much like Summer, continued. It’s still 100 degrees, the sun is shining, the leaves all look the same as they did last month, and about the only seasonal marker is the ripening of the fruits on our prickly pear cacti!
