Recycling


I can't stop doing faces so I am making a few Christmas cards with yes of course . . . faces



I decided I would like a new art table but found one close to home and the price was right. FREE! This is the isle of my dad's barn and if you open this door you go into the feed room. In the feed room is a table that was my mom and dad's first kitchen table . I am not sure exactly what year they bought it, but it has been used well its entire life. I decided to give it a higher purpose and cleaned it up and brought it into my art studio. So this is what it looked like before and I will take some more pictures to show you the after.

And here it is in a previous life with me in 1962 with my best friend Pogo. He is obviously tasked with holding onto some very important paper. LOL!



And here is one more Christmas card. They were both done with watercolours and a white gel pen. Ho Ho Ho

oh these are beautiful! i especially like the second card. how the eyes glitter almost like they are snow flakes and that adds to the christmas card effect.

finding "free" stuff is always awesome, especially when it has memories attatched.
