I suppose many of you have turkeys thawing in your refrigerators about now-
and maybe one or two of you just read that and shrieked-
"Oh nooooo... I forgot to take the bird out!"
It happens doesn't it? There has been a time or two that come Wednesday night;
our bird would take periodic baths in the sink trying to thaw out
in time. lol I think they tell ya not to do that but when you still
have a 28 pound turkey ice cube in your fridge, sometimes
desperate measures are called for.
It's hard to believe come Friday begins the Christmas rush.
And while I say that; ... who am I kidding?
My inbox is already full of black friday starting early sales.
I still love looking through all those colorful ads in the newspaper though.
I have fond memories too of that big thick Sears Roebuck Christmas wish book.
Now those were some good ole days!
With the new year around the corner,
I've been getting my books ready for the
and faith projects.
Several years ago I bought a huge ... I mean HUGE ledger from the foundry
during Bargains Galore yard sales. Who knew back then how much
I'd be using and enjoying all those papers today?
Several were added to ...
these art journals for the new year.
This is a moleskine Planner I've readied for Documented Faith.
My friend made the torn muslin ribbon and
stamped my name on it- so I stitched it onto one of the pages.
I'm so excited for it all to start!
- Recently learned how to add watercolor papers and tags, ledger paper...
gelli papers... all kinds of things to the pages with washi tape.
Took some time but it was worth it!
This one is the large Dylusions journal that I painted for
May add to it as the year goes on... but it's enough for now.
The white feather on the bottom is waiting to have my one
word for 2015 added to it and anchor verse...--That is;
when I know what they are.
No clue yet.
My art journal pages have been changing alot.
More than I ever imagined they would.
There's much joy...
in the play.
Before I sign off tonight, may I share this sweet thing
She's a new addition to our family.
--An Australian shepherd puppy.
We still haven't decided on a name but there's still time-
We won't be picking her up until closer to Christmas.
It's gonna be somethin having a tiny puppy in the house again!
Hope our other two handle it okay.
Well I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.
I'm giving thanks for all my family and friends.
Til we meet again,
