it's the holiday season

i hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, i know we did, we actually were lucky enough to have 2 Thanksgiving meals, one on Thursday and one on Saturday, so much good food and company.   the kids had so much fun with all of their cousins and probably wore themselves out, for  today started with Amelia throwing up and then followed shortly there after with Fischer,so i guess our extended weekend continues.    amelia's feeling better, hopefully fischer will be soon.


now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas countdown begins.  i'm still hoping my Christmas spirit will kick in.  this coming weekend there are all sorts of fun Christmas activities to go to so that should help.   here's another Christmas painting i did.  i think my favorite part of it is the background.  i used watercolor pencils on the paper and then covered it with tissue paper. i really like how it gave it  a vintage look.
i sold my first ever  painting!  i had taken some paintings  into Tulips  here in town and  "Tattered Wings" sold the day after i took it in!  pretty exciting.  it was really hard for me to take that first step to get my paintings out there.  it took lots of encouragement and support from a wonderful friend who pretty much had to "hold my hand"  as we took them to the store last week.  a big THANK YOU to her.
