First Snow

December 13, 2010 The First  official Snow Day of the season. This was a welcome relief after yesterdays weather. The sun was shining and my backyard was a "Winter Wonderland". No school today! I have the whole day to work the things I love to do. Camera in hand, out to the yard. It's so peaceful after a snow, and then the sun comes out and all the activity begins. Even Squirrelo comes out to see whats going on. This was absolutely the most perfect day off!

The Holiday Season is officially here. My house is decorated inside and out, and Christmas shopping has begun. I've also been quite busy creating hand stamped ornaments.
I emboss the design on colored card stock thed hand color them with Pearlescent and Metallic watercolors. A few crystals and a gold ribbon. Makes for a very festive ornament for your tree!

Our Backyard Friends

It's December, and it's COLD!!!! Thom and I have been taking good care of our friends in the back yard. We have cardinals, finches, and chickadees, occasionally there is a hawk that comes to visit. I think he's really checking out the fish in the pond, luckily right now they're hiding, and the pond is freezing over.  We quickly found out that when you feed the birds, you also get the squirrels and yes they are our squirrely friends. The little boy that lives next door calls him squirrelo, and he loves to pose for pictures. He is quite the character and now all his friends know where we live, try to keep them out of the bird feeders! That's Ok we take care of all our little critters!
