18 canvases going on at once ..... can you say multitask?

... these are the six canvases i started on wednesday ..... and thursday, once the food timeline had been established and i didn't have anything to do ..... i stenciled letters onto them ... and then one of them i made into a clock ... my mom is going to give it to a pal for christmas .... and the other five? one will be a clock for drew....and one for julia .... and i have another notion of the clock i'm doing for my third child, sophie .... so that leaves three well developed backgrounds .... to do something with .... not sure if it will be before christmas or after.......

.... these are TWELVE canvases ... that's a load ... but they are small.... tiny for me .... six inches square ... i papered them and glazed them with the intention of making them christmas gifts .... like for neighbors or girlfriends or gift exchanges ...i've done a couple and they are cute ... sweet....nice ... but maybe not as special as i want them to be .... so i'm still working them out .... trying to give them that extra zinggggg ..... the problem with that, if they are really groovy, i'll want to keep some .... and then what to do with all the pals that i usually give a small gift too ...... i can't bake them cookies .... since we've already established that i'm not one to relish kitchen chores .....

all the while that i was working on the 18 canvases that i've been doing for the last three days, my mom and my three kids have all been working on art projects too .... mom has done quite a few canvases .... sophie and julia have done canvases .... GREAT sweet christmas pictures that i'm so happy to hang up for the holidays ..... all three kids and mom have worked on some wooden pieces i'd bought....santas and nutcrackers ...... sophie and julia both worked on painting boxes ..... that's a phase we are in .... i guess when i'm out of boxes that artistic phase will end ...... and then also .... we all worked on some christmas ornaments ..... dots and fuzz on glass ball ornaments ..... i'll show pics of those tomorrow ... some should be done and ready to snap .....

.... and this is my andy ..... grand husband and turkey chef .... i am SO lucky .....

i LOVE turkey on friday ..... a nice fat sandwich .... i had one for lunch ... and one for dinner!!! did you eat leftovers today? were they grand? did you art? did you shop? hope you had a happy day .......
