I can genuinely say my love for the holiday season is dwindling as I age. I can start to feel this lump of stress begin about October and a quick release come January. After some contemplations over the subject I've decided to get all Christmas shopping done now when the sales are hot and the stress is not. My stress management strategy has already proved successful and budget friendly.
Now that I've shaken off the holidays I'm left with loads of time, energy, and pictures to blog. And a few videos! Yea! I've dreamed of owning a camcorder with my quirky toddler on the loose. So expect some pretty funny stuff. Logan has a happy Momma with a new art medium!
Speaking of art, I have been working on a few things these past few months. Some are done and gone sans documentation (shame on me) while others are in the middle of the process. I have a portrait who is screaming to be finished (little Jenny) and a mess of small paintings who are eager to be born. I'm also in the middle of decorating my living room and kitchen and believe it or not it isn't always "...so awesome" to decorate your home with your own art. Any little uncaught mistake becomes a twitch in my eye. Anyway, here are some of the works.
This was a impulse painting. More of a bored afternoon painting session. There are two but the other is very similar so I didn't post it. I put one on each side of a mirror that used to hang where the new family masterpiece photo now hangs. A little Christmas inspiration.
And, again, isn't my little helper so darling?
So, therein lies some of my holiday projects. Kind of fun.
