It is Christmas Eve and I have had some type of stomach bug for the last few days that is really going nuts! I am on vacation for the next 3 weeks and I am working hard to NOT be sick this vacation. Last year, I spent 2 of my 3 weeks sick with a nasty virus! Not to be undone by my stomach, I have been working hard in my studio, getting it organized and pared down. Thank you to everyone who has shown in an interest in my art, blog, and collage packs this past year! The response has been overwhelming! I still have 3 packs left - 2 Latin and 1 Asian themed collage packs that have a little of everything in them, including a rubber stamp/s, silk ribbons, decorative paper, and colored and black and white images, and other ephemera. For more information, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The camelias above are from my garden. We have 5 camelia bushes and the cool weather is driving them into overtime! The blooms are spectacular! Peonies are my favorite flowers, but camelias look so much like them, that it makes it easier to wait until April when the peonies are back in bloom! This was a nice little break, but it is time to get back to wrapping the last of the gifts! Tomorrow and over the next few days, I will be baking (something I limit myself to once a year!). I am really into the Christmas spirit now!
