It's beautiful but.....

We have been snowed in here in Portland. I love the snow for a couple of days, I love it before Christmas, but this is ridiculous! Being here in Portland, you get used to having small amounts of snow every once in a while not this deluge of snow that we have now. My car is buried right now. I finally took a walk to the grocery store to stock up on food for tomorrow and Christmas day. That was an adventure. The snow came up to my knees. I am not that tall, but tall enough to realize that me trying to drive in this would be a  joke. 

Anyway, for Christmas I receive this very cool ATC carousel. I have started working on ATC's since I have been cooped up in the house. I also have been working on my inspiration book. That is fun. It's great to have eye candy ready when I need it. No painting right now. Not for lack of wanting to, it's just too cold in my studio. If this keeps up after Christmas I will be bringing my paints etc.. into the  house. Right now I just wan tot try to keep it clean until Christmas. 

Above are pictures from my inspiration book.

I'm back...

Ok, so I have been seriously absent. My friend Alea creator of Bone Candy, reminded me that my last post was titled Gloom. Not a good title.

I have been working. Not a lot in my studio since there is no heat. But I have been working on Christmas presents. I can't post pictures now as the recipients might be reading.

I will be back with more, pictures included.

If your in Portland, enjoy the snow!
