It feels so good to be in blogland. I hope that the Holidays and this special time of the year has been good to all. I have enjoyed my family and friends so much this year. However, with the crazy job and all the other parts of life, I have drifted away from my personal love of blogging. I sneak in and out every now and again by checking other sites and leaving a few comments when I can but I miss creating and writing in my own spot. I also see that my book for 2011 is smaller than my first book 2010. Well there are a few days left of this year and I plan to make the best of the end and will look forward to the beginning of the next. Wishing all a good New Years!

This is a busy time of year and there was lots to do this weekend and then I added one more thing. I purchased this desk from a coworker and we picked it up yesterday. I am so happy because not only is it a lot bigger than the one I was using, it is a beautiful piece of furniture. It was made in the early 1900's by her uncle. A simple design made of solid oak. I have not figured everything out yet but I just love it.
1. Room to create
2. Beautiful winter days
3. Putting up Christmas decorations
4. Spending time with the family remembering old memories
5. Looking forward to more opportunities to grow into my art
Have a wonderful week.

Paper Trader Group to have an Anniversary project. This year it was to make a shrine to swap with the other members who participated. I have never made one before so thought I would try it. The only guidelines were the size and to have something tie to six (years for the group). I added the six domino for that. I used an ocean theme. I found the mermaid on Graphic Fairy. She is the perfect fit. The base of the shrine is a piece of drift wood I found on a trip to the lake. A fun project project.
