Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all. Come, let us worship Him.

Merry Christmas

It is now Christmas Eve and I have been reflecting on the busy year and how I got to this time in the year. This has been a year full of very special blessings from our wonderful God. There have been opportunities for painting lessons with great teachers from around the world. My husband and I have been blessed to be able to spend a lot of quality time with our family.
The greatest blessing and gift is our Savior, Christ Jesus whose birthday we now celebrate. Remember to worship Him and to give Him thanks and praise.
Mat 2:2 ... Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Here are 4 of the Christmas ornaments that I painted this year.

Busy Schedules

Schedules for this time of the year can become very cluttered. For the past 2 weeks, I have had one day each week to stay home. The same is true for this week. The week after Christmas, we can sigh and relax.
Monday is the day that my china painting friends come to my house to paint together. We critique, ask for help or suggestions, and offer the same. Maybe it is taken or maybe not but we just enjoy painting together. Sometimes we work on a special thing together and other times we each work on something different.
Tomorrow we will not paint. We will have our Christmas luncheon and then play Bingo. The gifts can be anything - frivilous, china painting related or otherwise. We have fun doing this.
This is a watercolor I did in my first workshop.

2 weeks till Christmas

I cannot believe that Christmas is only two weeks from today! How did that time get here so rapidly? With an opening like that - no, I am not ready!
There are still many ornaments to be painted. The Christmas cards must be made and posted. I guess I had better get back to one of those tasks.
Below is a sunflower plate about 10 inches that I painted. It has been given as a gift to a very special person.
