Today I will be going to my brother's house whom I have not seen in two years for a Christmas Party for the family.  We usually each give some small trinket for presents, nothing expensive but a gesture of love and so I made these snowman mixed media collages for each of my siblings.  I hope they like them.

This will be my first Christmas without  my Gary here and I'm trying to keep it together and enjoy the holiday as much as possible since it is my favorite.  I like to think he is here with me in spirit even though he never wanted to partake in any of the "decorating" for the season.  He always enjoyed it when it was done though.
A guy thing I think.

I feel a sense that my art is going to be big this year as I find myself getting back to wanting to do more and more and my blogging friends that I follow have truly inspired me to work on projects by posting their creations.  When I go to your blogs I say "Wow" all the time and just wish I was that creative, and so now you have all inspired me to "be" just that. 

Thank you all for that.  It's the best gift I could get this year.  Merry Christmas straight from my heart.

  6. Your snowmen are wonderful! Best wishes for the coming year! I hope your Christmas has been good. I too lost dear family in the past few years ---both my parents and a special friend---and it makes the holidays both poignant and ad. I guess we will miss these people always, but I try to take joy in the present, keep busy, plan for a fun, productive future. You'll be in my thoughts, dear Peggy!
