Paint Party Friday #42 and Sunday Scribblings " New, with recap of Old"

I'm Sneaking in My Digital art for  Paint Party #42 late this week!
Sunday Scribblings 300th prompt is "New"
To get the full affect of this post you  can click on the photos to read
more stories about events and completed projects

In January 
I created this  " Mountains of Courage in Bloom"  Bustier 
In Honor of my friend Helen who proudly fought Breast Cancer!
i

In February My daughter turned quarter of a  century old!

And My Dear Friend Gypsy Goddess turned half a century old! 
We celebrated at my friend Violette's Art Studio! So much fun!
In March my blog turned five years old and in April
my HANDSOME baby brother turned 50!
For a funny story about him click the photo below!
  
 In May I turned 55, 
June I completed a guitar " Covenant of Color" 
to be auctioned for Childrens Hospital Music program

In July and August I worked on these four chairs,
which weren't a quick process!
September  I opted to paint my wood kitchen table rather than 
buying a new rectangle black one like I originally planned!
 This old side table was my test piece, it was originally going
look more whimsical, but I was convinced not to make our home
look like " The Cat in the Hat House"


      October I  conservatively painted my oak rocking chair silver!

       November I completed a  large whimsical canvas that I have no home for yet!
  December was spent preparing for Christmas, doing art, visiting with family and friends! Instead of exchanging gifts this year we donated  two huge boxes of sundries that daughter collected all year from Coupon clipping.

              My New word for 2012 will be Nourish! Body, mind, and creativity!

2012 will be dedicated to  finishing off projects, gathering my art and poetry to focus on something marketable, entering some poetry contests, finding a way to make my bedroom more loveable and completing another Art Guitar!  I am dreaming of big things in the New Year! How about you?

Looks like you are on a good path into the new year. I'm looking forward to more boating and then after that perhaps some more boating.

Have a terrific day and a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year. :)

Wow, you sure covered a lot of your world with paint...bright, wonderful paint. It must make you smile all day long.

And just for the record, I see nothing wrong with living in a Cat in Hat house.
