Chunkies for a swap

See here 4 Chunkies for a swap with a friend in the States.
The themes we picked were:
1 "My Muse" - 2 " Fairy Tale character"
3 "Antler people" - 4 "Mermaid"
They made it there before Christmas, which was nice for both of us.
Little Christmas present for JoAnn
and peace of mind for me
with all the busy postal activities around this time of year
....and....she loved them :-)

Merry Christmas ~ a Red Robin

Well I've had 5 afternoons of Art Workshops
with a group of kids.
Pre Christmas Workshop.It was FUN !
But now I am ready for Christmas, to put my feet up and have a bit of quiet Art time for myself....hopefully......

♫ Ho Ho Ho ♪

I saw this great cartoon by Garrick Tremain in a Magazine this week,
I just had to save it somehow
so I made a page in my altered-diary-journal

(which is basically a beautiful diary from last year where I want to alter pages, make some completely of my own
and sometimes try to incorporate the existing photographs)

So here: for a good laugh

Counting down to Christmas

This year it has taken me some time
to get that Christmas feeling....
It's been such a weird year here
Well anyway, last Friday we had rain (Yeah !)
and it was chilly and I had the lights on in the tree
and Xmas songs playing all day
The kids were already home -school broke up on Thursday-
and finally.....
there was that Christmas feeling I was longing for......
So now, I'll be counting down...
...6 more sleeps...
and here are some Xmassy things I have been making lately

some cards I made for a group of crafty friends....

A try out of some sort, that I want to use for cards still

and some fabric balls I made today with the kids.
from an idea by my Brazilian/Swiss friend S☼l Santiago
(meet her here at
Borealis Shine)
