Actually I thought of Winter Wonderland so that the 'art' could last through until Spring! What were you thinking Michal??

Nutcracker came to mind but I like yours better Dianna- there is
More room for interpretation and creativity- and you are right- its relevant for longer.

I do love the nutcracker theme Michal and I also thought about Folk art but then I really wanted everyone's art to 'last' a while, I do so enjoy the amazing talent here, so thus the winter theme! Thanks!!!

I'm definitely in!
Dianna, I love your theme "Winter Wonderland"! It will indeed last a couple of weeks... who am I kidding... a couple of MONTHS to be look at! :)
We already had a first shed of snow! Nothing stayed, fortunately but still, I had hoped to enjoy the crisp and colors of Fall a bit longer! *snif*

Me too! Please sign me up!

I'm with you, Marilou! Fall is so fleeting, and yet so beautiful to look at, much like a newborn baby! We have neither knock out colors nor white out winters, but Fall is always gentle after the hot summer, generous after the long wait of the growing season, and rewarding as we reap the rewards of a season's hard work. Then along comes gray, cold, damp winter to steal autumn away all too soon!

Great choice Dianna! And plenty of time for all of us to chew on it. I'm excited!

Yes! Hi dear art friends! So happy to be here again with you all! Thank you so much Meg! I love the amount of time we have. I can create better when I have a little time!
Marilou and Sara I adore fall but we haven't had much 'fall' weather yet. I was out in shorts and flip flops the other day MOWING and WEEDEATING again! Hopefully I won't have to mow for a month or so! ;) Would love some of the 'S' word here!

Wow! What a LOVELY surprise I got in the mail today!!
A beautiful winter wonderland arrangement hand-painted by Sara, it is gorgeous and is now in the place of honor at the window seat in my kitchen. Not only that, but I got some baby alpaca fiber from Sara's very own farm, some bamboo roving (!), Holiday gift tags (hand-stamped) and a piece of original artwork Christmas tree card.
I am overwhelmed!
Thank-you Sara so MUCH!
Happy winter all,

Bleeni

Hooray for our postal service which can move a box from my house on the west coast to yours on the east coast in just three days! That always amazes me!
Aimee I hope you have a cozy Maine Christmas!
