Christmas message.....

I'm writing with disbelief that Christmas has arrived.
I remember ,clearly, the beginning of this year and all the goals I had listed on my studio wall.....all the things I wanted to accomplish.  It seems like only yesterday when I posted that list.....and now another year is going to turn on the calendar.
Time goes by so very quickly doesn't it?
When I was a little girl, it took forever for Santa to arrive each year.
Now, he visits in the blink of an eye.



My Christmas tree is decorated, the stockings are hung from the mantle, the gifts are wrapped and the poinsettia has been delivered by a dear friend. Thanks friend! It's the biggest poinsettia I've ever seen.


I must show you my stocking......



My Mommy did cross-stitch.....hundreds and hundreds of stitches counted throughout her lifetime of numerous pieces.  If you've ever been in my home, you'll see lots of framed cross-stitch art.  Each person in our family received a stocking with their own name.  That means she stitched this pattern nine times. Can you imagine? And the stocking is 2.5'...huge!  Gee I don't even paint a piece more than once let alone nine times. I treasure my stocking because it makes me feel that Mom is here with me at Christmas, a very spiritual time of the year for me.  Yes, the other two stockings belong to the fur babies and yes each with their names.

My family will be visiting this holiday season so the anticipation of their arrival has begun. We'll be keeping with tradition by enjoying our Christmas dinner at the Chateau Laurier. They have a buffet to die for.....last year I ate eight plates of food...this year I'm going to try for 9!!!  We'll again drive to Taffy Lane in Orleans to see their street filled with Christmas lights. We'll hang out by the fire, laugh, share and enjoy each other.

So what are your plans for this Christmas season?
Drop me a note....I'd love to hear from you.



Faith makes all things possible,
Hope makes all things work,
Love makes all things beautiful,
May you have all three this Christmas



Merry Christmas
Love
Maer, Miss Lucy & Mozart.
