Happy New Year

Christmas has come and gone for most people. We'll be celebrating both Christmas (again) and New Years here this weekend with my #2 daughter and her husband and son from New Jersey, who couldn't make it last weekend. We still have mounds of packages to open and lots of cookies, candies, pies, cakes, and other goodies to wade through.......and need I say, pounds to gain!!!
I look forward to getting back to my studio and concentraing on some creative projects in the new year. I have two round robins going, one is almost finished and the other is barely begun so that will give me something to look forward to each month for awhile.
Then I'm planning some new sculpting projects, some new egg decorating, and if I'm v-e-r-y smart, maybe I'll even start some things to make for Christmas 2007.....that would be a first! I'm making an effort to start knitting again and I've about decided that rather than plunging right into making socks right away (which I've never done!), I'll do some leg warmers first. That surely will help get my fingers accustomed to the rhythm again. I find knitting very relaxing, but I've never been very good at it! And leg warmers would make great gifts for grandaughters....and even husbands who complain about cold ankles in the winter!
Whatever I do, I'll share some photos from time to time. I hope you all have a wonderful, happy, healthy, productive, and prosperous new year!!! With love....

Christmas Angel

Woohoo! I made it work this time! This was my first Christmas Angel. Her head, hands and wings are clay and her gown is crinkled paper. She stands about 12" tall. I have two others that hang on the wall but I don't have photos of them yet.

Try again

Okay, I got this one to upload, anyway. This one was given to me by my son and daughter-in-law. She's about 9" tall and 14" wide.

New Look!

Wow, I just changed to Beta. I like the new look, I hope it works as well for me as it has for others.
To see if I can get it right, I'll try uploading a couple of photos.
Here are two Christmas angels made of clay and paper. I bought the tall one years ago and was given the blue one not long after. I use these in my decorations every year and pack them away carefully after the holidays.
Well it seems that the tall angel won't upload at this point. I'll see if I can fix that later.
