I know I disappeared for awhile. Let me tell you do NOT
start a project for Christmas gifts that is unfamiliar to you.
I decided to make watercolor flower glass ornaments. I painted on these fragile
glass pieces for 5 1/2 weeks. There was some ink involved and I used a "positively
permanent ink".... I finally reached the glazing point, tired but excited... I lined them all
up and began spraying. They were shiny and bright and then, are you sitting down...
they all started to run where the ink was. It was like watching everything melt and moosh together!
You do NOT want to know what I said ... no you don't. It was not nice or lady like in the
least. DH can attest to this.... It has taken me days to come to terms with this disaster.
But I picked myself up, dusted myself off and have gone with a much more familiar project.
Needless to say I have had to burn the candle at both ends to meet the deadline. But I did it.
So here I am to wish you all a jolly happy joyous holiday.
Enjoy family and friends, put your feet up and maybe read a good book.
It is time to remember what the holiday is really all about.
That is what I plan to do, plus take Teddy for fun nature hikes. He has been so good waiting for me to finish everything.
Take care and I'll be back after my short winters nap.
Ho ho ho and all that good stuff.
