Mama Needs a New Studio

Peace on Earth

Christmas morning and all is cozy. Warm cinnamon buns, hot coffee, a peruse through my new knitting magazine, the crackling of the Holiday Yule Log on channel 4. Ahhh, the joy of simple things.

Here Comes Santa Claus

Here comes Santa Claus,
Here comes Santa Claus, 
Right down Santa Claus Lane...

I can't believe another year has almost come and gone. Time for a resolution or two. First, I think I shall resolve to believe in myself they way I used to believe in Santa Claus. Yes, I shall be Santa Claus to me everyday! Done! Well, that was easy, although it could get a little pricey.

I have to say this past year has been one of the most exciting times of my life. I've completed a business course, met many wonderful new friends and mentors, come out of my shell (that's a biggy) and started a fun creative business. I'm not sure where it's going, but I think I'll let it take me as far as I can go. Resolution two, get out of my own way! Huh! I'm getting good at this. 

Here's wishing you all a fabulous Christmas and a happy and bright New Year!

Christmas Time Again

I went to the Langley Writer's Christmas gathering yesterday at the beautiful Michaud Heritage House in Langley and saw all my new friends. It was really nice. I haven't been to the group in months because I've been so busy with school and setting up my business. There's been no time for any fun at all--oh wait, I guess I can't say that. Starting up my little business has been way fun! 

Another exciting thing was getting my hands on the Valley Voices Chap Book which just so happens to house a piece of mine. I'm so proud. I've included it further down in this post. Loreena Lee, a fabulous local artist did all the artwork for the book. I was thrilled to see the beautiful line drawing she included under my contribution. 

Here's the front entry at Michaud House.

 I couldn't resist getting a shot of the wall paper. So William Morris. I love William Morris. 

I also couldn't resist this little guy. 

Here's the published piece.
