for the love of...

 
 
For the love of my family...
 


And a good time was had by all - well, at least by me. We were lucky enough to have all 3 of my kids, one fiance, one boyfriend and my sister & brother in law spend Christmas Eve with us. We shared a beautiful church service, loads of  fat free food (OK, it was Christmas I can wish), gave and received some great presents, and laughed til we cried playing games. It was awesome!!!

I truly hope that whoever has taken the time to read this is having (or has had) a wonderful holiday season as well, whatever holiday you celebrate.

Now to close out the year I am celebrating one more thing:


For the love of aqua...



 
 
I was lucky enough to have my aqua submission chosen by Stampington to be included in the January/February 2013 issue of Somerset Studio. My aqua project made the Melange section for which I am so grateful. Thank you Christen Olivarez and the entire Stampington group!
 
 
 
 
For the love of new beginnings...
 
With the new year fast approaching I hope for you a new year filled with all the things that make you happy - may they fill your heart and your life.
 
Happy Holidays,
 
Renee

Holiday Greetings

Winter is here in Minnesota full force. Lots of snow on the ground, freezing temps, and a husband happily ice fishing (or so he says yet I've only had fresh fish once so far).

I am trying to get into the Christmas spirit however am finding it difficult this year. I did manage to get the artwork done for our Christmas cards this year. Now let's see if I actually get them printed and in the mail!


 
 
Aside from working on the Christmas spirit I do have a little news to share. My "For the Love of Aqua" submission will be published in the January/February issue of Somerset Studio so I'm pretty excited for that.
 
I guess I will spend a little time this evening doing some online Christmas shopping. Thanks for stopping by...

hooked on faces

Some people get 'hooked on phonics', I am currently 'hooked on faces'. And, I  am still really having fun with aquatones and pan pastels. So here are a few more faces from my composition book journal that I've been working on...



 

 

 
 
Christmas cookie baking will take precedence over art this weekend so I have to play while i can! Also I see The Tin Goat is getting close to 100 followers - I feel a give away coming on...
 
Thanks for stopping by ...
