Blog on the Run


It isn't you, it's me. Having a lot on my plate just now as I'm sure you do too. Shellie has been coming over every day and hanging out with me. I haven't sent out my holiday cards yet but that's par for the course.  What's unusual this year is the number of projects I'm working on all at one time. I'm spread thin. 


I can't get the ceremony of St. Lucia day our of my imagination so I thought I'd paint the young girl in her crown of lights. The painting probably isn't done but at this point perfection isn't in the cards.


Happy Holidays to all . The solstice has crowned the year and once again we're looking toward a new beginning. I hope you light your candles and have some loved ones nearby to touch and be touched by. It's so good to be alive in 2011. Wishing you a joyous New Year and the gift of grace. May you be touched by the spirit of the season.

Oh Judy I love her! I was working on handmade cards for friends, including you but unexpected events pulled me away this week and I'm not remotely ready for Christmas. I want you to know I'm so thankful for you. You continue to be an inspiration and example. Sending you love and wishing you very Merry. Hope to see you in 2012.♥

It's been such a lovely especially lovingly lovely holiday time for us this year; was at my son's in Portland for five whole days...pouring love into new 4 month old grand daughter...and 18 yr old grand daughter...son and his wonderful wife. Then last night the twins and my daughter and her husband were here for another night of Chanukah. Yes we are lighting candles and the love lights up my life in such big ways. We are incrediably blessed to be alive and well.
Here's to another year of amazing art sharing, making, playing, and living! Hugs to you dear Judy. Your art lights up the pages on my screen and I love it all.

This is so beautiful. I can't wait for your journal workshop in March. Please give advance notice of supplies we need especially what type of journal book paper. Thanks.

Judy I never tire of looking at the beautiful faces you create... Isn't it funny - here in the southern hemishere, where the days are sooo long and getting sooo hot I find joy knowing that as the summer solstice is behind me I can look forward to shorter days and cooler weather! Maybe we should swap sometime :) Peace x Donna
