So, let me tell you. The madness has begun.
My mother does her Christmas shopping from September to November so that she has all of December for wrapping presents. I would just like to share what our guest bedroom looks like right now. Also you will notice I have added that slightly blurry warm contrasty effect to these pics because, ’tis the season for such things….
And the drafting table is slowly being consumed by gold ribbon.
Please note that I am not posting these images to critique my Mother’s mildly outrageous love of Christmas and sparkly things, as I, in fact, totally plan on giving into the madness in between other activities…
I’ve been doing a lot of watercolor paintings lately and I’m eager to share some.
I just finished this sunflower for my Aunt Rosemary’s birthday present. Her birthday was really in October, at which time I made a cute little certificate redeemable for one painting of any subject of her choice. My Aunt lives in Georgia and has a beauuutiful garden and meticulously landscaped abode, and she picked this flower to paint. I think it came out pretty well.
