Christmas is over

and things can finally calm down. We have things to return. I got a Nook which I didn't ask for but an delighted to get. It is the black and white one so I am going to return it and pay the extra for a color one but B&N is out of them so we are on a waiting list. I think everyone was happy with their presents.
Am now making turkey soup with the remains. I only made a turkey breast this time but did it in the crockpot and that is definitely the way to go. Less mess, more meat.
I have decided to enter a piece of feltwork in the Hampton Gallery. I haven't sold anything there yet but the owner is so supportive of my work, it is only a matter of time till I enter the right piece. Tomorrow I am going to play with my embellisher and my sewing machine, well, maybe. We have to get JT to his hockey game at noon tomorrow and the game starts at 7pm. This was supposed to be a vacation week but so far, no art has been done.
I hope you all had a great Christmas and got what you wanted. Also hope you will be sharing new artwork with me soon, I could use some inspiration!

Christmas time

I can hardly believe Christmas is almost here and I am close to being ready. Usually I am still working on the tree on Christmas eve but it is up now and beautiful. I tried a new mantel display this year with my Mark Robert's Santa faeries and it looks great. I love these Santa dolls and add more to my collection each year. I am about to run out of room.

My art work is almost at a standstill but 2 of my friends that I don't get to see very often are setting up play days for the week I have off. I am excited about that. Still too cold to felt but I can always bring bags of stuff and my embellisher. Can make lots of new wall pieces. Everyone loves them but I have to figure a way to come down in my price. Could also make some bodies for wall art fairies. What a joy it will be to just play for no reason.

I have no shows signed up for spring yet and after the first of the year, I will start sending out applications. Still only local shows this year but I am seriously looking at one in Big Hole Wy. That would be a great show but we would have to drive to get the tent and displays out there so it really isn't practical. I can dream big though.

Hope all of you have wonderful holidays with lots of laughter, fun and a few naps thrown in!

I had a nice thing happen to me yesterday. I got a call from a lady a couple of towns over who wanted to learn to felt. Someone had referred her to me. She had just returned from Mongolia and wanted to felt like them. Told her I only knew of 2 people in the US who teach that though I am sure there are others. She still wanted to learn so we are starting next week and we are going to make scraves. An easy enough project and enough elbow grease needed to felt well. Will be interesting to see if she wants more lessons LOL.
