Hi! Well the turkey is done, most of the packages are wrapped,and of course you've seen the pink tree! ha ha. Here is my Piggies. This original is in the Red Queen Gallery! They have 3 new Eastern Shore Mini Landscapes. Today J. took them up for me. I'm still drinking lots of gatorade and coffee for the headache. It's almost better. Ok I went grocery shopping yesterday and that almost did me in! So today I've sent the men to do my errands and crashed on the couch. Can you believe it is Christmas Eve tomorrow! I finished my commissions this week and they were picked up!!I hope to show you soon what they were.
Have a wonderful Christmas. Eat Lots of cookies, and be merry. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas! love to you all,Diana

HI, Well I've been working on the commissions this morning. Wish I could show you but I can't, maybe after Christmas! I also painted a Christmas card for an art lesson gift certificate. Another surprise.
Here is our Christmas tree. I usually go to a farm myself and get one but this year with the blasted... headache-yes it's still here.(I'm trying not to grumble about the pain too much--well now anyway) My husband brought me this beauty from Walmart ! I love it. I told him I wanted a pink one if we couldn't get a real one!! Definitely brings smiles.
My cookies aren't going to get cooked so I've opened a bag of chocolate bars.. But we have so much to be thankful for. Isn't my manger scene beautiful on Gran's cupboard!I always put this out first in my Christmas decorating,because Jesus is why we celebrate. Enjoy the season,enjoy and remember your blessings. Talk to you soon,Diana

HI, I haven't been blogging as much and miss it. I miss hearing from everyone and commenting on your lovely blogs. I'm still here. See the pillow with dear Rudy(the cat) on it, usually my head is right there next to her. I'm laying down still as much as I can because I still have this post lumbar puncture headache... I have a hole that will heal but it's allowing fluid from my brain to drip down and causes this horrendous headache.so far 3 weeks tomorrow..! Here is a photo of my sketchbook from last Christmas..an ornament I drew. One of my favorite movies of all times is Christmas Vacation.. so funny! We must watch it each year!! I did get to the show yesterday. I had help.. John set me up,all the racks,paintings,... and he and my mother hung everything. Then Mama stayed for a few hours, I went late and stayed until the end. It was a lovely show,so Christmasy and warm. Don and Donna Drew are wonderful people, stop by the Copper Creations soon and see their work or look them up on the web. Ed and Pat Kuhn were there with his wonderful fish carvings, Jim and Mary Ann with Jewelry and Soaps, and Dianne with ornaments and me too! I will be working on finishing my commissions this week. I hope you are doing well and my best to each of you! talk to you soon, Diana

Spinal headache continues. I can't get much done. I have to lay flat as much as possible to get rid of it. Hope it heals soon.. Pain pills help but still can't paint like I want. I will get my commissions done. Just a tiny painting I worked on in 15 minute increments. Talk to you soon, I hope. Diana
