Let it snow......

Well I hope everyone is coping ok with the snow...wherever you are in the world (ok; so not my friends in Australia!) I thought we were having a snowy time in England until I saw Patty's photos here - all I can say is WOW!!!! Too deep to even make snow angels!
Talking of which....my current favourite album is Tori Amos's 'Midwinter graces' - have a listen to 'Snow Angel', then search for 'Pink and Glitter', 'A Silent Night With You' and 'What Child, Nowell'......just wonderful. What a voice she has......

There are so many art projects I want to get started on - but for the past couple of weeks I've only managed to make felt flowers .......
.....but after Christmas I will be doing DJ Pettitt's digital art/Photoshop workshop and I CAN'T WAIT!! Click on the picture if you want to take a look.
And I have also subscribed to Suzi Blu's Angel Workshop...so excited about that as well. Again, you can click on the picture to find out more.
Hopefully I can get back to regular posts in January. Mum is getting stronger and will soon be able to manage on her own (thanks for all your good wishes BTW).
So till then.........

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

to all my wonderful blogging friends.
I wish you love, peace and joy..........

Ahh next you'll be wowing us with your digital art dear Linda, I can hardly wait ... I was tempted by those classes!
Your flowers are splendid!!! Felting is in my future to try too!
We certainly DID have a dozzie of a snowstorm, it's still a winter wonderland, good thing it fell on the weekend, the school children did get to begin their winter break several days early, now all the last minute shoppers are scrambling! Ho Ho Snow!
I really want Tori's CD, thanks for the listen dear one!
Have a very Merry!!!
Blessings to you and yours!

Merry Christmas Linda!!! Its very hot here today so I've been enjoying seeing all those snow photos. I am very tempted to do DJ's class too - all the graphics look amazing, I would love to be able to do that. It might just have to be a Christmas present to myself. I love your felted flowers, the colours are beautiful. I also enjoyed listening to Tori Amos - I haven't heard that song before, I'll go and check out her other songs on YouTube. Hope you and your family have a wonderful time at Christmas and all the best for the New Year! Hugs - Barb

Hi Linda.... Merry Christmas to you too!
Your photoshop classes will be wonderful. I wish I had photoshop (had it on the old computer, and never used it much). But, dont have it on the new one.
Your felt flowers look gorgeous. Love that extra stitching.
Wishing you and your family the best Christmas ever!

Linda - I think you'll really enjoy the workshops. I found them exciting, daunting, liberating... and eventually, I became fearless. All thanks to learning to paint!!
