    Early New Year resolution: Get back to doing art regularly. I hope to join you more often in 2017 - but I'll start here (now don't you all faint because I'm posting!)

    How do people know when anniversaries are? Happy anniversary to everyone celebrating before the New Year!!!

    I hope that everyone has either started a wonderful Christmas Day or is well into the preparation for it.
    Mine started with an immediate family (ie all my kids, their partners and the grandson) at our place for a Santa hunt and breakfast.
    Now that that is tidied up the kids all spread to their other side's luncheon celebrations before we all get together with my family again, my siblings and THEIR families for evening meal at my Mum's place. Tomorrow is spent with my husband's family - the yearly bocce tournament is hard fought, and we even have a trophy to go with it

    I will be very ready for some serious crafting time come the 27th.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

    My 29th Anniversary will be Jan 16, it falls on Martin Lutheran King day, aka Civil right day. Every year it does fall around this holiday. It is a Federal Holiday so the PO is closed. I cant remember if the schools are closed. We also celebrate in Arizona Cesar Chaves Day in March. and the schools are closed for sure that day. But it is not a federal holiday.


    I wish I had not married in JAN it is so cold to take a trip every year. I wish I had gotten married in the summer when I want to leave Arizona and go somewhere cooler.

    Thanks for the invite! So excited to join in ATART again so soon! Now I don't have anything work related or other distractions and SO is going away for New Year so I can go all out with crafting. 8)
    Don't give up what you want most, for what you want now.

    Yes, I was in Greece for three weeks in October. I was on an 11-day tour in which we saw Athens, Olympia, Delphi, Epidaurus and then cruised to Mykinos, Santorini, Patmos, Crete, Rhodes and Ephasus (Turkey). After that I stayed 11 days in Athens by myself and saw all sorts of things. I definitely will be drawing pictures of Greece.
    Thanks to all the people who said hi - I just got away from drawing for a while as I was preparing for the trip. I took two classes at the local college - Greek philosophy and Greek literature, so that also occupied me for the last few months.
    After I arrived home I spent two weeks in California with family and then I was home for two days and drove to Virginia to see the rest of my family. I have definitely been on-the-go. I have no additional trips planned, but I have lots of ideas of places to go!
    I'll try to get some pictures posted in the next day or two.

    Nice to see so many folks checking in, and a special welcome back from your trips to Jo.on.the.go!

    I just realized it's about starting time. I'm not ready to just yet, but hopefully in the evening. We arrived to our sweet but chilly cottage a couple of hours ago, my parents, sister and her and my children. We're heating up the house and cooked some soup from a can for lunch. I write in bed now having just put our little one to nap. We are tucked under blankets and he's wearing his hat and mittens in bed. My husband is about to arrive and I keep listening to if I heard his voice already. We were not together for Christmas this time since he was working, and we thought it's more fun for the kids to stay at the grandparents' house where also their cousins are. I hope everyone's been enjoying their Christmas (those who celebrate it, or another holiday if that's what you do). And hope to see you soon again!

    Jo - I can't wait to see your Greece inspired creations. The pictures of your holidays always make me envious but I love seeing them.

    Amapola - you were perfectly correct about starting time. I hope that the cottage is starting to heat up now.

    I OFFICIALLY DECLARE THIS ATART STARTED!!

    To get you in the mood for Day 1's themes here are 2 Christmas cards (1 secular, 1 Christian):
    #1 #2

    then we have Christmas colours
    #3 #4 #5
    #3 has green foil words and #4 has red foil words, not the black that they have scanned

    and at the bottom you will see my first card using leftover wrapping paper

    And now to bed as it is almost 1.30am and I am in danger of turning into a pumpkin.

    I look forward to seeing what has been created while I sleep - GOODNIGHT ALL!!
