The Star Angel

 Hello everyone! It is so lovely to be back--after having computer problems for the last couple of months it is finally fixed and we are up and running again! :)

Above is my latest painting, "The Star Angel," painted on a 7"x7" wooden plaque. I added mica glitter to her wings to add some fun sparkle. She is available in my shop.

Above is "The Gentle Forest," which I never got a chance to show you here. I am happy to say that it is on its way to a good home! I intended to get some Christmas prints and postcards in the shop this year, but with all of my computer problems I couldn't make it in time. Next year for sure!

Daniel and I were very excited to do our first Christmas tree together this year. We had a wonderful time picking out a tree, then putting on some Christmas music and decorating :) I hadn't seen many of my old ornaments for years, so it was a lot of fun to unwrap each one and put it on the tree.

And if you look closely, you can see Rosie relaxing under there :) It is her favorite new spot.

Here are a few more little decorations (my mom made the adorable card on the left for us). We have done a lot of fun Christmas activities this past weekend, including our yearly tradition of going to the Christmas parade, then coming home to watch "Elf."

 It has been nice and chilly and rainy, which makes the perfect backdrop for a cup of hot cocoa and a good book (or two).

I hope that everyone is having a fun and relaxed holiday season! I'll see you soon :)
