Holidays........

This time of the year tends to make us work harder, play harder and eventually hit the wall-I ran out of steam two weeks ago and got sick. I felt better after a few days but phase II hit me and I am still on the mend.
I am excited to do more experimenting with different products-I will let you know how it goes! I don't know if this happens to everyone but when I see certain textures or colors or bits of random items I can see them in my art-I love finding a common item and making it special somehow. I have dozens of yarns, just one ball because I liked the texture or colors then I figure out how to use them in jewelry or art-------more on this later........I have decided that unlimited possibilities us much more fun than a bunch of rules to follow for art.
Have fun, enjoy and don't try to hard!

Okay here are more pics of the rocking chair

I am getting the hand of it all in the cyber world , I know I have two of the same photo.

another page of the journal, we had pretty soft colors of aqua, peach, brown, silver on a flocked tree, it seemed to all work! I know in the sea of red and green we stood out.

Christmas tree jubilee charity

Well the tree is done and sold!

we made a journal with pics of some working on the tree and notes of encouragement, it took many hours but was worth it! all the ornaments were handmade by sewing, soldering, gluing, painting.......fun!

antique books and doll on our painted, aged rocking chair with a gorgeous quilt made by Kelli, and her mom sewed the tree skirt..........hard to let go.........we hope it helps a disabled child receive help!!!Happy Holidays....
