dec. 1 .... more christmas than art today!


this is my mantle .... all of my art is put away .... and up go the 4 billion nutcrackers and the framed christmas tree that my grandmother, mormor, made .....

i'm afraid that december is going to be slow going for art ... so ... the question then is, do i still do a daily blog, even if i have nothing artsy to blog ... this is meant to be an ART blog .... so, no art = no blog? .....nah ......  i need to keep blogging cause i really love to do it .... and it is a real incentive for me to document my artistic endeavors .... so .... i never touched a paint brush today .... BUT, perhaps these are acceptable contributions: 
1. i used a glue gun .... one decapitated angel was recapitated (i love that i just made up that word!) .... sophie was VERY upset when our automated, rotating, singing nativity crashed to the ground .... MOOOOOMMMMMMMYYYYY .....i'm SOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRYYYYYYYY .... but, it all still works and once the teensy tinsy angel head was found, she was mended in short order ..... you all DO have plug in nativity sets, right? 
2. i told stories at the world storytelling celebration today ....one with drew, one with julia .... andy and sophie said we all did quite well ..... that was definitely an artistic endeavor ....
3. we decorated ... since it is FINALLY december 1, we pulled out all sorts of boxes and fabulousness from the basement ..... and it looks like the ghost of christmas thrift shop threw up all over our house .... but.... we're getting there ... give me another day or two ...or three ..... and we'll be all set and lovely .... we'll do the tree next week ..... 

ho ho ho .... hope you are all happy and artsy and having a happy weekend ....
