Christmas rush is on

I always say to myself, once Halloween is over, Thanksgiving hurries in, then we blink, and Christmas is here!! And this year proves to be the same. Thanksgiving is now a memory, and Christmas will be here soon. So much to do.. So many things in my mind that need to be created…

I have made a dent into the list, by working on some ornaments this week. I  have the same theme as you can tell… blue!! and of course, my angels… just different kinds but still angels…

This angel is actually a wood canvas, 5×7, ready to hang on the wall with the hooks on the back.


Even though she has some pouty lips, she says JOY on her dress!!



This nativity, is on a long, skinny board, distressed paint, with Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, in white…


This last little angel is on a smaller wood board and simply holds a cross in her hands.

I have many more started and just have to sit down to finish them up.

In the midst of my painting, this week, I was anticipating a party at our house last night. We had dinner with my daughter`s boyfriend several weeks ago, so we knew the plans for yesterday but it was a surprise to her.!! They got engaged!! Yay!! I had to try to get the house ready without putting out any of the engagement things I had made to decorate. Pinterest is a great place for ideas and I am sure I will be going back there often as these next weeks and months turn into planning a wedding!!


I worked on these to hang from the chandelier in the dining room as we had about 30 people over when she got here to show us the ring with Steven… these are just a few of them… and here is the happy couple.


Happy new week to you!!
