Are we there yet?

The fall arts and crafts season is just a mere memory! Can you believe it? I have more than a dozen projects begun in the basement, and consignment items waiting to be embellished and I haven’t even scrubbed my stock of gourds yet. 2011 is peeking around the corner and a whirl of designs are scribbled on my trustly notepad, and not to mention what it floating in my head. So much to do and definitely not enough time. The holidays are quickly approaching and there iare always oodles to do to get ready there. Since I have been neglecting my home for months, a planned week off before Thanksgiving is required to get everything in order.
I have just completed the an Art doll challenge for Christmas and Santa will be arriving for purchase December 1. At which time his majesty will be added to my gourd repetrior. I have had such fun with this one for Santa resides in a jack-in-a-box along with sculpted gourd head and hands. He is finished in his holiday finery of a red velveteen robe, lambs wool beard and of course, repurposed eyewear. He is a big piece topping off at 20" tall x 8" x 8". I promise to post pictures soon, now to find where I put the camera!

I'm Busy, Busy, Busy - but isn't what what life is all about? Hoping and praying to take some time off in February to visit my gal pals for an extended weekend. Can't wait!

As always thanks for listening to the ramblings of a middle-aged crazy woman and supporting my craft in the process.
