Slowing down

I'm slowing down in doing any new art or blog challenges. I need to work on Christmas cards and other bits and pieces. It's a busy time of year. I've already put up 1 tree out of 3. I've also spent Saturday de-cluttering and downsizing my Christmas ornaments and other display items. I've given away all my Halloween things. I don't think I will be decorating that much anymore. I'm getting too old to fuss taking things out, unpacking and pack up again and put them away. In the new year I will spend more time working on new art, challenges and my journal. I've always wanted to make an art journal but time just seems to get in the way. The only thing I've created was a house for a Home For the Holidays swap which I will post here now. This was a challenge for me and I lost patience with it. I will try to post now and then to let you all know I'm still alive and well.
Hope you have enjoyed my blog and don't be shy and become a follower. We all love to hear your comments too. Stay in touch.


  1. I think this house project is super! Lots of detail. I'm with you on the decorating! We're down to a mini tree that I keep decorated all year round; store it like that and all I have to do is bring it up from the basement! :) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours......Marilyn

  2. I really wanted to host a swap making Christmas Houses in the 4 x 4 size. I love working in this size. Your house book is fantastic. I must be alittle ahead of you in the down-sizing. I don't even put up much for Christmas. I have so much fu fu hanging around my head at work that unless we are expecting the grandkids I don't decorate. Guess what I am fixing for Thanksgiving???? Frozen Enchalatas. sp.....Have to work Friday and we usually go to my sister-in-laws for Turkey but not this year. Change is good. And if you don't have enought time......always let something else slide............and do art...Happy Thanksgiving..Diane

  3. I can only imagine the amount of work you have put into these exquisite Christmas houses. Superb creations, houses bursting with good cheer. Stunning.
