    Farewell, it's been a blast!

    As many of you know, my Rik has cancer. I am cutting back to care for him and have decided to resign as contest moderator after six wonderful years. I will still be participating in the site in a limited way. Pam, ohhappyday, has volunteered to take over and we are transitioning over this month. I will help as needed, but from now on for contest questions and donations, PM ohhappyday.

    The contest entry email remains the same, as do entry instructions. I hope you all will continue to send in your best ATC art for the monthly contest and check out the work and vote!

    Thank you all and best wishes. Deb

    Thanks for all you've done. Thoughts are with you and your husband.
    One can only dream of what never was
    and as for what "really is,"
    remember:
    it doesn't exist.

    DEBS! You're the greatest! Thank you for all the years you've served on this site. Take good care of yourself while you nurse your husband. I'm sure you are giving him only the best of tender loving care. Blessings ...
