Happy Holidays!

I did a little decorating to my garden area for the winter season. All of the boughs I cut from greens on the property. My sister had given me a small evergreen plant years ago and now I decorated it with some more greenery. I had some fun then taking photos of the current state of my garden and making mini greeting cards.
Have a Happy Holiday!

Making my own clothes

Lately I have been feeling guilty because my creative energy has been going towards making garments. For years, painting is what I did to work out my artistic needs. This past year, I have been teaching myself how to create garments and it has been challenging and rewarding. I have enjoyed the process. I love getting compliments about my dress and saying that I made it. I get really excited by this. I want to say to people, "You can do this too!" It does take some time and I do already have an art background so it may be a little different for me. Just like drawing, I feel that with dedication anyone can do this.
Here are some images of some of the pieces that I have created.
