December Photo Project~Day 1

(Roll Grandma that is!)

I posted this the other day but I think it's perfect for Day 1 of the December Photo Project.

Christmas songs have been galavanting around in my head like reindeer so I decided to do some Christmas song journal pages, and here's the first one.

It happens to Grandma every year!
  (12"x9" ~ Created using mostly colored pencils, Sharpies and acrylic paint.)

My lesson learned:  
Add the text before the 3D glittery snow paint.  
Otherwise, it's one very bumpy (and ugly) writing event.

Which song will I do next?
Even I don't know the answer to that question.

Friday Fill-Ins

It's time for Friday Fill-Ins! 

1. If you catch a falling star, you certainly won’t be able to put it in your pocket because the catch will kill you!
2. I won’t be singing la la la or anything else out loud because I don’t want to scare my hubby or the dogs! 
3. I have to ask you if you think Thanksgiving has rapidly snuck up on us? 
4. As I age, I have fewer vices; More good habits. 
5. I didn't have time to finish turning my painted canvas (with a leaf on it from Daisy State Park in Arkansas) into an art quilt yesterday
6. Cooler weather is something I love beyond all reason.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to getting my two grandsons for a few days, tomorrow my plans include taking them to the movies if that’s what they want to do and Sunday, I want to make Italian goulash and watch football of course!

Caterpillar Cuteness

We just returned from an RV trip to Daisy State Park in Arkansas.  On our last day there, we discovered an excellent little Mexican restaurant in the nearby town of Murfreesboro.  This colorful guy (or gal) was resting on the window sill next to our table.  I just love it!

Wouldn't it make a cute art quilt?
I think so and just might have to pursue it!
