Holy cow Michelle! I don't know how you made and packaged 50 of those!!!???? LOL no wonder you're tired!! I think packaging is often more time consuming than the actual creating process! :)
Love your journal pages! One of these days I am going to show up on your doorstep for one of your classes and commit to jumping into yet another artform!! LOL!! I'm sure my husband will be just thrilled with that!! LOL
HOpe you have a WONDERFUL Christmas!! God bless you!!

Hi Michelle! I hope you and the family are having a wonderfully blessed holiday season! We are watching the snow reports on the news and missing the PNC this time of year... then we head outside and remember why we live in AZ-lol.. Your art is as fun,whimsical and beautiful as ever! Give those Hummingbirds a whirl, they might surprise you! Wishing you the best in 09!

Wow, its been forever since I've browsed my favorite blogs, but I'm back and wanted to pop in. I can relate to hand made ornaments, since we added those to our line this year. They are very time consuming, but great for the sales! Can't wait to catch up on what you have been up to. Merry Christmas!

I love your journal pages! The colors are amazing...I can't believe you cut out 50 snowmen out of MDF like that...WOW what an undertaking, but I am sure they were cherished by the recipients...Beautiful work as always....
