my room is so chock full of wedding stuff. I can't decide whether i like that or not. I will hopefully put up the details later on, but for now, why spoil it?

Christmas morning lacks sleep, so I paint trees instead.

Here is the start of a huge painting...the stretched canvas is actually a little this one won't be going anywhere.....My gesso was a little chunky, so i think it might have been a little dried out in places. None the less it did the job, but there was more sanding to do than I would have liked. I drew on the trees with charcoal and then just went at it. I didn't have a picture in mind, but I want something to sit on the fireplace at the wedding and our colors are green and black. The "bokeh" looking blobs will eventually be the light coming in throught the branches.

Goodbye, pretty girly room....

I'll miss you


Candles are great for so many things....staring at for ideas and for clearing the gas in the bathroom. Charley and I scrubbed the grout in the kitchen with a cleaner that smelled like old socks. Candles to the rescue.


So the invitations eventually got sent out, with few days to spare. Their major flaw was that on opening the recipient usually didn't notice the response card. Only 60 people have RSVP'd so far...we are counting this a blessing, unless more people decide to show up after all. We'll cross our fingers and find out when we get there.
