Last minute cards for friends

 I decided to make a few last minute cards for online friends. Each one is different and I had fun with them. 






I should be packing as we leave Sunday to head out west for the winter. Maybe I will get to that later today. 

Wishing you all a happy and healthy weekend! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind words! They mean the world to me.

All Caught Up?

 The barn sale where I have my cards and ornaments starts today. She hosted a preview party Wednesday. I was there and enjoyed seeing a few people buying my cards and ornaments! I am hoping to do well today and tomorrow. 

I have cleaned the house and addressed all of my cards. The annual Christmas letter is almost done. I only need to buy gifts for my son. He has not given me a list so he may just get gift cards:):) 

All of this means, I am caught up:):) 

So why not get out some paints and make a new mess on the desk. I had an idea in my head, something I have seen in a lot of watercolors. I have lots of acrylic paints I never use, so I got them out. I put a generous coat of greens on the background and then used a cut off fan brush to paint the trees. While it isn't a masterpiece, I had fun. I am trying to explore and see what else I can do:) 



I might just get out more paints this weekend and keep playing! 

Wishing you a healthy and happy weekend! 
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words!
