This holiday season, I've been on a non-stop quest for filling my days with all of the holiday fun I could find and I've been pretty successful at it. Parties, luncheons, play dates, cocoa parties, and more.
Last Tuesday, I had plans for a full craft day and lunch party with a few friends. Sadly, no one could make it after all, and I thought I should probably get busy and do some Christmas shopping while I had a free day. But instead. I decided to have a solo party. I got myself a candy cane and headed to the studio to make some stuff. I've missed creating, there has been a very small amount of it lately.
It was a good day, even though I missed my buddies. Whipping up this shadow box (made from the backside of a wood framed canvas, lined with a Christmas card and filled with bottle brush trees and a putz house) sure made me happy.
I even treated myself to a second candy cane while I worked.
Then, I painted this pup for a friend (the glue under the glitter is still a bit wet, the glitter will dry clear, not white.)
Earlier, I'd started this snow gal head. I took advantage of my solo craft day to finish her.
Her body is a Victorian cruet bottle filled with fake snow.
Yep, a good day. Of course, I missed my friends, but sometimes it is good for the heart and soul to have a day just to piddle around with supplies and make something.
