Christmas went off without a hitch and was laid back as they come. I won’t bore you with all the details, except to say it was nice visiting with the family and getting David and Alana all to myself for a week.
For the past couple of months I haven’t been drawing as much as I should. I haven’t forgotten my beloved pencils and paints, but I was on a mission. This year I wanted to make everyone a little something for Christmas to go along with their gift. I had a lot going at one time. Their were quite a few things that I tried to complete that didn’t quite work out. One, was two colored pencil pieces with fishing lures that I didn’t finish on time. I tried to make a clock out of wood and that was a disaster! and the last one was a celtic letter in beads on silk like material that fell apart while I was matting it. So here is some of my handiwork:
These are some note cards that I made for my dad’s girlfriend. I also made the notecards holder too.
These note cards were made for neice. These were really quick and didn’t take long to make. I also made another noteholder.
I also made her this jewelry set.
This is a watch that I made for my mom. The picture is out of focus (sorry)
These are stone earrings that I made as stocking stuffers.
I made alot of rice bags. I think I will have one more to make. Because I made one that was confascated .
Acrylic on canvas
The boys really loved these. I didn’t think they would go over as good as they did.
These are T-shirts that were also for the boys. I bought the T-shirts and tie dyed them in a clorox solution for about 20 minutes. I think I am going to make me one next as well as a tank top for summer.
Another out of focus picture. This is the book that I made for Alana. I gave it to her on Christmas morning. I think she liked it, but it’s hard to compete with an electric guitar and a amp.
This is one that tanked. I spent a week on it, stuck my finger a thousand times so daggonit I’m posting this. This was suppose to be for my sister-in-law Vicki. When I get the energy I will take the beads off and start over.
Well, I think that’s about it. I hope everyone liked their presents.
