RUBBISH: Papers flying everywhere!!

Ethan and I did some random playing and sketching yesterday.....I have so many paper scraps scattered "here and there".  Ethan enjoys drawing for about a minute then it's off for some other fun!  Well, after the new year, I will get down to the studio and do some painting!  

Today was spent moving most of my stuff out of the family room so Ethan has more room to play.  I am moving my digital piano up here over the weekend to start layin down some tracks for some compositions in the works and with a bit a magic from my mac and "garage band",  my "song sketches" will find their way to a recording.... and maybe my paper sketches will find their way to a canvas!:)  BIG DREAMS this year!

Wishing for Snow......

I love the holiday season, especially when it is sprinkled with sweet, white glitter!  Where is the snow here in western PA?  I am aching to get in my studio and hunker down to create some winter, magic fun!!  Here are some shots from years  past......  I have a whole book of sketches that I am trying to "bring to life".   :)

Radishes: Belated Holiday Post

I am still enjoying Christmas Vacation but I only wish for just a little snow!  This post of some of my vintage displays, is so "thrown together" this year and I am a little embarrassed.  I just don't have the "flair" of so many talented bloggers out there.   Now, I am still enjoying them, but I think it is partially because of the sentiments attached.  The snowman book my Dad (who passed away in July)  found for me at a thrift shop, the vintage snow couple Tim found in the basement of a rental property, the flocked ornaments from  my dear friend (and adopted cousin) Lani that belonged to her grandparents,  Tim's adopted great grandmother's vintage tabletop tree with bubble lights, the four foot goose feather tree from my mum......Ryan and Ellory's hand painted ornaments, Tim's paper chain he made in Kindergarden and the first snowman Tim ever gifted me when we were dating... and all the Christmas memories I hold dear in my heart.....this is what makes Christmas special to me. ...  And baby Ethan in his santa suit......watching him play with the train under our tree.....being thankful for all my heavenly Father provides us with....and the little things I can share with others......Blessed Christmas wishes and Happy Hanukkah to all my family treasured friends...and new family out here in "Bloggerland."
