This ornament from my collection was painted by Lisa Martin Bowman. I am a big fan of Munnys and this one is especially sweet!

Ornaments, and folio

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

I had meant to start posting ornaments from my collection, of all handmade, artist made ornaments but I have bee so sick the past week I did not even get started. So. I’ll post three today to make up for lost time and also one that I designed last year for sale in my etsy shop.
This is one available in my shop:

From my collection this one is made by artist “Dolly Gagging”

This one is by artist Diane Redmore Moore:

and this one is by artist Carla Naron:

I do so enjoy my unique ornaments!

Also I have been working on little collage folios, they are about 4 x 5 inches and can hold atcs or aceos or little photographs or they can be stared at and displayed :D
this is one of them:


I used thick canvas and they fit so nicely in the hand!

I know, thats a bit scroogey.

Its true, that is how I feel about it. Stressed out people on busy roads and germ filled air planes, packed parking lots with peeps carrying debt ridden credit cards, does not equal joy or magic. The magic comes in January when the credit card balances jump from here to there and money needs to be pulled out of some magician’s hat, and lots of it.

We tried to keep it as low key as possible. I do like it to be fun for children.

While I don’t buy into the myth and religious aspects of the holiday I do enjoy having a tree. The smell, the nostalgia. I decorate it with art that people have given to me and that makes the tree meaningful. Its different, and has its own peculiar beauty.

Holidays

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Happy to say that I finished some work yesterday, will post a little later on. This is Carlos and Maria:

I’ll be out all day tomorrow, have some unavoidable business to take care of.  Soon afterwards I will be going into production mode for the holidays.  Need to fill my sad empty etsy shop with holiday greeting cards, ornaments, prints and giclees.
