Art Cards – Week 49 – Tis the Season

Tis the season to be jolly!

To put up the Christmas tree.

To make new ornaments and exchange them with friends.

To put up holiday lights, illuminating the night.

To hang the stockings and fill them with treats.

To bake Christmas cookies.

To go to holiday parties and spread good cheer.

Tis the season to chill out and enjoy life!

Stop by our Flickr group to see the last few sets of art cards we are creating.

A Little At A Time

I’m excited for the holiday season. But I’m not quite ready yet to deck the house in all the fa la la la la.

So I’m just setting out a little at a time.

It’s wonderful to be able to set out so many handmade holiday decorations this time of year.

I am enjoying the peace and quiet, and time to work on projects, including catching up and planning ahead.

Have you set out your holiday decorations yet? Finished your shopping or gift-making already too?

Winding Down

After a weekend full of entertaining, my brother, my niece and I decided to go skiing today. It was a fun, exhilarating, and relaxing way to spend a winter day outside.

Did I ever tell you that my all-time favorite thing to do is ski? I LOVE to ski! I learn how when I was about five years old, so it’s in my blood.

I didn’t take any pictures over the holiday weekend because we hosted a Christmas Eve dinner and a Christmas Day dinner. Things were quite busy in our kitchen! After all those guests and meals, I can’t believe we don’t have many leftovers. Just enough for one meal.

I have a lot to catch up on, so I’m happy to have a quiet week ahead of me. Hope everyone had a wonderfully festive holiday weekend too!
