We had a White Christmas

We celebrated Christ's Birthday with our family over 3 days.  Sunday our daughter, Lisa came with her family and share'd gifts and food with us for a change.  It's usually at Lisa's home.....Then Monday afternoon Dewey and I drove to April's where we were supposed to meet up with Missy and Skip.  It didn't turn out that way however cuz it started snowing so we had to start home earlier than we'd planned.  It's a shame Missy and Skip didn't get there till after we left...Next year I'm just going to have everyone at our house so we won't miss being with everyone!  I'm hoping to have Missy and Skip over in the next's snowed more since last Monday...beautiful fluffy white snow covered the grounds on Christmas day, and again yesterday!  We got about 5 inches so I haven't been out today!  This is what I did with my day,
Old snow covered barn
8x10 acrylic on canvasboard

Another snow covered barn with fence on 16x20 canvasboard

Wrinkles laying on the floor with Sadieblue

Napoleon on the sofa!
The day after Christmas I got out all the great art
supplies Dewey gave me for Christmas and painted these
two paintings...he gave me new paints, brushes, and canvasboards.."smile"

Wishing everyone a very Happy and Safe New Years!!!

Doing a little decorating

I was sitting here at the computer reading msgs, while I was thinking about all the things I need to do today. Who said I couldn't multi-task..eheheh!!! Yesterday I spent much of yesterday creating some new Christmas decorations using things I had in my storage building. We have to cut corners where we can, right? Here is a photo of the tree I created using different shaped wreaths. I'm really happy with the results, what do you think?

I took the old gold with clear lights apart and created this little gem...I love all the colors, do you?

Santa's created by Joanne years ago

Last but not least is the awesome Nativity Set
give to us many years ago, but Dewey's sister
Betty Hodge!
We do all this decorating as an outward show to our Lord how much we praise HIM for all that He has done for us.   Celebrating Jesus Christ's Birth was the beginning of a whole new understanding of what and who God is to the World...without Jesus there would be no hope!  Just think about that...
Blessings to all who stop by, God loves you and so do I....


Mary's awesome blog

A little about me!

My photo

Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren.  My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry.  On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs.  Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
