In One Year and Out the Other
A local event is using that title and I really like it, even though we all know that time is really an illusion. Still, it is a persistent one so we may as well humor it.
Santa and the family were very, very good to me. I received many great gifts, the best of which were time together to laugh and hug and eat good food.
The next post should have some photos in it. I am making this post as I wait for my new camera's battery to charge!
I've finished an art doll that I'll list in the shop and I'm currently working on a Comfort Doll. To learn more about the Comfort Dolls, just click on the icon at the top of my sidebar. It's a wonderful thing and I am happy at the prospect of being a part of it.
I finished a small collage on canvas. I got lots and lots of new canvas board for Christmas, as well as three moleskins and the water-soluble oil pastels I've been wanting. They are just as great as everyone said they were.
I love that my kids both mentioned how peaceful it was here, as we were opening our gifts and enjoying our day. This observation by teen boys made our hearts glow. I was pleased with how well each member of the family seemed to know the other as the gifts all reflected thought and love. It is a good feeling to know that we are truly and deeply known by another.
When my camera has finished charging, I am going to take photos of everything that doesn't move. hehe I am going to work harder on my videos for YouTube, trying to make them more enjoyable and less tedious.
I feel that the year coming is full of exciting changes and challenges and fulfilled dreams. 2008 has its work cut out for it if it is to top 2007!! What a wonderful year of transformation it has been.
Thank you, my friends, for sharing it with me. Thank you for sharing your own stories of love and life and for taking the time to read about mine.
I love you and I wish you all the brightest 2008.
Until the battery charges.....Peace.
The battery charged and I just added the photos at the top. I have a lot to learn about taking pictures but I'm so excited by the prospects! Finally, I will be able to take decent pictures. Yay! Thank you, Santa Patrick. :)
