The start of that Christmas Season

Last night was our final art journal meetup for the year.  Back again in January.  We had a fabulous time, went to R house (the leader of the group) and we exchanged presents, lightly used and wrapped.  I got the book the Artists way, I cant believe that I have not read that book.  We had fabulous food and desserts, all supplied by our kind hostess, and we did some art, and listened to Christmas tunes.  All in all it was great and got me in the Christmas Mood.

Today its last minute stocking stuff and then its wrapping and I am
done for presents.  That's always a great relief when its done.

My friend Gayle is ridding her house of 100 items she doesn't need for the month of December.  I have decided I am going to do that in January.  Stay tuned.

My plan for the rest of the year is to say merry Christmas in different languages see if you can guess which language it is
I am starting out easy for you.     Joyeux Noël

baby its cold outside

It seems all I do is complain about the weather.  But it has its perks,
got a new coat.  I have been looking and looking and finally found
the one I had pictured in my mind, its red.  I think when I wear 
red I feel powerful.(lol).

All morning I have been working on my Pinterest board.  What did we do before Pinterest.  Its eyecandy for anything and everything that would interest a person.

Today I am taking pictures for my ETSY shop.  I am in no way
a photographer, I will take a picture of my set up, very minimal.

I was reading 17 ways to bring more traffic to your blog, and one
of the ways is short paragraphs and short blog posts.  So I am
ending this now.  Do you have have any tricks to get more blog
traffic to your site?

Cry me a river

happy I am out with the shopper (aka the daughter), doing a little of this and that, then grabbing lunch and catching up.  

I got the email yesterday that I did not make the final cut for the museum gift shop. But you know what I am ok with that because hey I made the short list of over 1000 people so who am I to complain.  Ok I complained a little bit to the hubster but were just
keeping that in the family.

This is a selfie, but it no way resembles me, artist privilege to make myself look like anything I want right.  I have been working on getting the shop updated, and taking pictures for it.I missed out on the Christmas buying season this year, but I have all year to get ready for next year.  I am a newbie at this and have been trying to read up on all the ins and outs of etsy, and I am getting there slowly.

over and out and talk to you all soon
