HOLIDAYS !


My goodness it's been awhile since I've posted on here.  I can't believe we're all talking about turkeys and glitter and presents!  Our extremely beautiful fall is over and now it's looking like winter. I know we're all going to be busy for the next few weeks.  My thoughts are turning to family and friends, presents, decorating and of course ART!! Enjoy the hustle and bustle and the warm glow of the season.
 I just finished Judy Wise's online encaustic class and it was wonderful. There were days that I was sure I wasn't going to do anything right but it's starting to come together. I'm still behind but I've learned a lot.Thank you Judy!

  I've also been busy making some ornaments for the tree in my studio and making some Christmas cards.  Manon Visser was so generous!! She had a free online class for her adorable little Popjes girlies and I made a couple of Popjes ornaments!  I posted a photo of one Popje that I made.  Thank you so much Manon!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Very Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.
Much love and happiness are my wishes for you for 2012 and every year....

Hi Star, It's so nice to meet you. I'm glad you took time to visit my blog. I guess I need to get rid of Christmas Glitter and start a New Year! :-) And thank you so much for liking my art too...I have a long ways to go but this is the year to practice, practice, practice!!
