|I just wanna play, experiment, try new things!!|
I decided to glean my old pieces of art into a very short flipagram called "Best foot forward!" I think this is a wonderful quick way for artists to present their work in an interesting way! Unlike youtube it's quick and simple to prepare, upload and add music to! Make sure you check it out at the beginning of this blog!!
Something New for the New Year!! How fun is that?
Is there something new you want to try this year?
|And so I did!!|
This is my Contribution for Paint Party Friday!
Here is a recap of our Christmas season with our beautiful family!
My 52 year old brother, my Niece and Nephew.
We had a wonderful celebration at his house!
We provided two of their favourite desserts!
At lot of laughs were had by all!
Cupcake with her Cousins!
Mom wished for tall grandchildren
that she never got to see. Cupcake in the middle
stands only a three inches
taller than moms five foot frame!
Here is Beardo at his moms with a Totem of his four
out of six brothers all 6'3" and taller!
They are a quirky fun bunch
that you can't help but adore!
With a family of ten children, spouses and grandchildren Beardos family picks names and they gather Christmas eve with eight of the ten children and their families to celebrate! I opt to stay home and make the deserts and breakfast for the morning!
It was a lovely season but we really enjoyed the few months leading up to Christmas with the carols and decor! Which was less hectic and demanding than the week of! We were able to give more to those in need than normal, unexpectedly everything came back ten fold! We drove purely by accident past a grocery store where a radio station was collecting for the food bank. We quickly all but threw forty dollars at them, immediately Cupcake was unexpectedly given concert tickets worth well over one hundred dollars!! The kids were given 4 tickets worth almost two hundred to another concert from Beardos customer and they also got Tickets to the singing Christmas tree which is booked months in advance, plus they were treated to high end steak house absolutely free!
We don't exchange gifts amongst each other and yet all our needs are wonderfully met! I was given a gift certificate that will pay for lamps I had planned on buying for my bedroom! It has truly been a season of love, giving and surprise! We are blessed to have such loving family and friends!
Now I look forward to purging, playing and producing art in 2014......!!!
