Sending you all puppy dog kisses for the holidays!
This little precious one has been keeping me busy during the last few months....teaching me what it is like to be a puppy mom, testing my patience, showering me with kisses, and opening my heart to places I didn't know existed. I love my little Miss Olive.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends. Can you believe the holidays are upon us already? This is the first time I can remember having all of my Christmas shopping and decorating complete and it isn't even December 1st yet. I know crazy but I do have my reasons. On Monday, I will have hip surgery and will be a bit laid up during December and hobbling around on crutches for awhile. It is a good thing. I look forward to recovery, rebuilding my strength and being mobile once again. No, I will not be having a hip replacement but repairs done for a labral tear and bone spur that have caused me havoc this year....that's what I get for playing Dance Connect with my grand daughters last Christmas and thinking I was 20 years younger....bodies just don't do what they used to do when we get older. Drat!
I haven't had much time to play in my studio but have developed a new class which will take place in my California home studio May 31, June 1 and 2, 2013. My new love, "bronze clay" will be the focus of this 3-day retreat and will include a shopping day at Remnants of the Past Vintage Show here in San Luis Obispo, Ca. I invite you to visit my "Class" page for details. I would love to have you join me....space is limited.
On another note....have you discovered the great opportunity that awaits you over at Art Is You to help those who have lost so much as a result of Hurricane Sandy? Vivi Magoo Presents, Art Unraveled, An Artful Journey, Artful Gathering, and Adorn Me have all joined together in efforts to raise funds to help Sandy's victims.....hop on over to Art Is You and see the possibilities. Tis the season!
And speaking of giving and the holidays.....I would like to announce a GIVEAWAY and SALE that all of you can take advantage of...... my way of expressing my heartfelt thanks for your continued support of my artful endeavors, kind words, and always giving me opportunities to grow and learn.
GIVEAWAY - I will be giving away 2 of my Twisted Sistah DVD's and 2 of my Heart to Heart tutorials as a Christmas gift to four of you. I will draw the winning names December 22nd. So you have about three weeks to enter the drawing. All you have to do is sign up as a follower to my blog and leave a comment on this post. I would love to hear about one of your favorite holiday traditions. Good luck!
SALE - beginning December 1st, my Twisted Sistah DVD's (available in my Etsy store) and Twisted Sistah on-line workshop through Creative Workshops will go on sale for the entire month of December. For one month only, the enhanced version of Twisted Sistah will be only $99.
Santa's elves will be busy in my studio while I recoup....so not to worry about getting that DVD before Christmas.
Wishing you all a blessed holiday season.....I have so much to be grateful for, so many blessings.....Kiss, Kiss....
