T Stands for Tuesday ♥

Hello my Tuesday friends! 
It's Christmas Time for sure here in the country :) I've been streaming Christmas music on Amazon and pulling out all of my Christmas CD's ♥
But mostly I've been wrapping gifts and finishing up those last few cards . 
Just when I think I've made them all I think of one more I want to make :) Here's  what I have done so far...
Which isn't a lot but it takes me much longer to make them this year than ever before so I should have started much sooner on these. 
Yesterday the cats and I wrapped gifts and I think they did a better job than me  :) 
They definitely enjoyed it more. 
Too bad no one was filming us :) 
So  since I"m down to the wire here on getting things done and still have to work today and tomorrow. I had better get busy .

Paint Party Christmas & Twisted Sister - Silver Bells

It's Friday and it's rapidly approaching "PANIC TIME !" 
So to get all of these last minute projects done it's time for me to PUMP UP the Christmas Music and get busy. 
Here's a song from one of my favorite non-traditional Christmas albums that really gets me moving fast. 

I pop the cd in and turn the volume HIGH and get busy. 
Today I'm finishing the last of the hand painted Christmas cards that go to very special people  :) 
Then I have to finish up the other projects that in various stages of "UN-PROGRESS :/
and we don't even want to talk bout wrapping :( 
But I'm COOL :0) it will always come together somehow .

T Stands for Tuesday

It's beginning to look a lot like 
Hello my Tuesday Friends
I have finally mustered up a wee bit of the Christmas Spirit and did a small amount of decorating here. 
The big tree is out of reach right now so instead we have a grouping of 3 small trees in an old wood crate. No ornaments :(  I may try to see if I can get to some tomorrow or the next day. 
I did rewire the reindeer and they are outside now  but no picture yet. 
Now I'm frantically trying to finish up the few cards I want to get in the mail this week .
Here are a couple of WIP's along with my big cup of coffee. 
I finished one today...
I think I am done shopping. I need to take an inventory to make sure I haven't forgotten anyone. Christmas is going to be here before we know it and I'm never ready. 
So that is what is happening here today.

Paint Party Friday

Ok I know it's Saturday already :( 
I work retail's Christmas.
Need I say more?
Last week totally got away from me and I didn't get in here to post so this week is a showing of what I've done art wise in the past two weeks.
First I got out the Gelli Plate and here are some of the results. 
Every flat space in the kitchen was cover with drying Gelli Prints :) 
I've used a couple of them already... 
This one is a 5"X7" blank note card.

Now I'm covering some mini composition books with them (and other things) for pocket journals. 
I watched a free art video by Tamara Laporte this week. I signed up for her Lifebook series a couple of years ago and loved it. I've followed her every since but just can't haven't been able to do the Lifebook again YET. 
She does a lot of Art Journal video's on Youtube 
This card was made while watching the video...
