It is Friday - I think

 We have made it to another Friday - at least I am pretty sure it is Friday. 


We have had an unusual stretch of a couple of warm days which is making it difficult to believe the holidays are right around the corner. 

My husband teaches an in person course at a Community College which has now gone to a virtual online class. So looks like we might be heading out west to spend the winter, sooner rather than later. That has left me with a flurry of shopping as I try to finish buying Christmas gifts for my son and his wife. We decided to celebrate Christmas with them during Thanksgiving. I also have lists of items to be packed, notifications to be made, etc. 

I did manage to complete a project for my friend. Every year, for probably 6 or 7 years,  I have created a mixed media canvas for her for Christmas. This year I changed it up and painted one. I used watercolor gouache and followed a design I saw on Pinterest. I added names to her stockings.



I also played along with a video tutorial and completed this snowman. 

He was a lot of fun. 

Adding this to PaintpartyFriday! Please visit all of the wonderful artists over there. 

As I watch the sun rise and we head up north to the cottage and visit my sister, I am thankful that we have stayed safe and healthy. I hope you are all well and hope you have a wonderful weekend.
