LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Christmas Past

I completely forgot about the Craft along challenge I issued on Free clip art Monday's two weeks ago !!! Sheesh, I am SO sorry ! I was SO proud of myself too for posting every day too !! :) I will HOPEFULLY add Mr Linky to my blog this Monday in the hopes that you ( and I :) ) have made a cute something to share with the last group of Clip Art I shared :)

I thought I would share with you some of the Painted Roses I did a few years ago for Christmas. I have painted a tiny few this year ( I will share on Pink Saturday this week ) But nothing in the amounts I used to do years past.Thanks for indulging me. I know you have all probably seen these pictures a few times before, but I need to see them. I feel sometimes like who I am as an artist is slipping away as I am able to do less and less. NOT complaining, life IS after all a Journey. I feel not quite ready though to give up certain aspects of who I was Creatively. Although I know to be successful in life we have to go where it leads us and not try and root in somewhere. Here I am sticking my toes in the sand trying to stay put. Shame on me !! :) I hope that this next year I can do MORE artistically than less as Our Lord allows. Do you feel the great Rush of Joy when you are in the midst of creating something new ? I sure do. Beats any chocolate Rush, that's for sure :)

Well, a reflective Wednesday for sure. :)

Happy Hump day :)

Hugs :)

Hi Rhea! I never tire of your sweet creations, no matter if I've seen them before or not! Sorry you had another flare-up.

I haven't put our big tree up yet....may not this year. I'd rather rock a baby than decorate these days....

BTW, I sooo love that candy cane striped snowman birdhouse!!

(Did you see my new header and tribute to you?)

Love,

Hello Rhea, I never saw these beautiful things before I love the snowmen they are so pretty, I love all of your stuff. I am sorry that you are feeling so poorly and I hope things improve after you have rested up. I know what you mean about creating things there is such satisfaction in making something beautiful.
