December 20, 2011

Well, we are fast approaching Christmas and the end of the year.  This month I really haven't been good at painting every day so will probably get coal in my stocking.  The one painting I did get done was a Christmas card for a PF friend Amelia and then used it as my family Christmas card.  Usually I try to get a painting done just for the family card and a different one for the exchange butr this year just got behind.  Here is the painting I did and sent so Amelia has the original and I just have a copy.  Plan to paint this again so I can frame it as I have done in years past and I bring all the paintings I did for each year out and hang them and that is part of our decoration. 

I really was thrilled how this turned out.  Will redo this is a larger size. 

I didn't get my YOP painting done even though I love to paint roses but.......  Hope to work on it after Christmas and still post it before the end of the year.

Have done loads of baking and went to a  Christmas cookie exchange.  The two crystal platters in the front of the table were some of the cookies that I baked this month.

And then my DH and I celebrated our 47th anniversary yesterday the 19th.  Here are a couple of photos from those ancient days.

So there you have it.  Now have to concentrate on shopping, wrapping, more cooking AND PAINTING.
