Here is my 2019 Christmas Card.
Here is my 2019 Christmas Card.
On Thanksgiving, I asked my husband if he had any preferences for when I put up the Christmas tree. He said “No.”
On Black Friday, late in the afternoon, a brought the Christmas tree and the tree skirt up from the basement. My husband told me “You are suppose to do that while I am at work.” I think he just wanted me to cook supper and watch TV with him.
This is how my tree looked on Friday.
On Saturday, I added decorations.
My husband told me “You can put up the tree. It looks like you really want to.” I told him “No, I will put it up on Tuesday when I bake cookies.”
Sunday, I added lights to the tree.
Husband shakes head.
Monday, I put an angel on top of the tree.
Husband roll eyes.
I did get a letter from Santa.
Tuesday, I took the tree out of the box.
Husband comes home at lunch and asks what I did with the nicely decorated tree box.
Husband gets a look from me.
Here’s the decorated tree. Can a tree have too many ornaments?
I have come to realize, if I just left the tree in the box, I wont have to wrap presents because all the Amazon boxes would have match the tree.
Here are my latest vases done with polymer clay. I took some blue and mixed in a little black to get the dark blue color. I wrapped the glass vases with the dark blue and added the flowers. I wanted the vases to have an oriental feel to them.
Here is my latest mandala. It was done on 16″ x 20″ Black Art Board using Sakura Moonlight pens.
It glows under a black light.
Here is my Inktober Drawing for 2019. It was done on a 20×16 Bristol Board. I used the Zentangle method for the drawing. I marked the four corner, drew wavy lines and circles. I made sure there was 31 sections and use the 2019 Zentangle Inktober list to fill one section a day. On October 31, I shaded all section of the drawing. Below is the results.
I also did mini (3.5″ x 3.5″) drawings for Inktober. I used the list provided by Pattern-Collection website. Those drawings are on the Drawings page.
Here are a few pictures of Fall. Leaves are turning. Branches are becoming bare. There a cool, blistering breeze in the air. The kind that can blow you down and there is not enough clothing that you can put on the protect you from the cold wind.
It’s time again for my audio books recommendations. However, this time I doing something a little different. Since my last recommendations, I have primarily listened to books published by Mountaindale Press. With a few exceptions.
Why have I concentrated on books published by Mountaindale Press? Well, I have trouble finding good books. I really enjoyed Dakota Krout’s Divine Dungeon Book Series, so I decided that I would give other books by Mountaindale Press a listen. So, far I all of their books have been enjoyable and entertaining. Below is the list of books, I have completed. They are all awesome in their own way.
Into the Light: Axe Druid, Book 1 – Christopher Johns
Advent, Red Mage, Book 1 – Xander Boyce
Party Hard, Pixel Dust, Book 1 – David Petrie
Books I have enjoyed from other publishers:
I would like say I am ready from the next books in these series, but I have at least four books waiting for a listen. However, when the next books in these series are published, they will probably be moved to the top of the list.
Thanks, Mountaindale Press @_Mountaindale, for making my 1100 miles road trips entertaining.
Shading makes all the difference. I did not create this drawing for Inktober. It was just something I though of while I was traveling. It was done on 16″x20″ Bristol Board with Micron Pens and #2 pencil for shading. My drawing for Inktober is locate on my Drawing Page using the recommendation of the Pattern-collection group:
The Gathering Place is a 100 acres park on the banks of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It’s a park that anyone, of any age, can find something to do. Every thing, except food and drinks, are free in the park.
Some people stay at a hotel until it is time to check out. Me I wake up and get going. One of benefit is I get to see a lot of sunrises. Here are the pictures I took from the hotel parking lot. I saw a bunch more sunrises. No pictures because I was driving.
