New Card Design and Ramblings

I did it!

I finished my new Christmas card design. Here's a sneak peak:


Now it's off to the printers and I wait....I'm hoping I will have them next week.

I've been cleaning and getting ready for Thanksgiving and planning my Wintery, Christmas tablescape. I hope you'll check back next week for that. I'm excited to decorate for Christmas this year. Last year was a bust as I was dealing with my broken knee and unable to do much. As a matter of fact, I will be decorating the farmhouse this weekend. Hurray! I can't wait!!

I'm also trying to finish up the painting of my niece's horse. It is by far the best painting I've ever done. I'm so excited about how it's turning out. Here's how it looked when I started and then about 2 weeks ago:



It always amazes me how much tweaking it takes...just when you think it could be done, you see something else to work on. I do hope to have it done before Christmas.

I'm also working on Christmas ornaments. Cutting them out, painting, embellishing. And then a couple of Christmas signs. Yikes, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed...can I just put everything on hold until I'm all done with these things? :o) I never seem to start early enough and then I'm dashing around trying to get finished. I admire people who can work on their holiday decor way in advance. Somehow, that never works for me.

Speaking of, I'd better go and get the next thing done. Have a wonderful weekend!
