I have a lot of catching up to do

Hello everyone,
Can you believe it is December.  I was just posting about how hot it was and having to stick my head in

the freezer at the supermarket.  Now Christmas is knocking at the door.  November was a crazy weather month here in the foothills of central Ca.  We had SNOW!!!!!
Now the weather is warmer.  I'm trying to enjoy the sun while we have it.  I, also have been making a
mini album.  I have become addicted to youtube.  Did you know you can type in any kind of art work and

find tutorials on how to do it?  Here is the front of my book and some flowers that I made.  There are some wonderful talented ladies out there that so generously share their knowledge.  I'm half tempted to try it myself.

I participated in a vintage art supply swap with a young girl from the Neitherlands.  I met her on Flickr.

Here are some pics of what she sent me.  Some of the pictures didn't come out.  Sorry!
There were some vintage papers, train tickets, receipts, old tatting, material.  I will have alot of
fun using this stash.
I have also been exploring some of Tim Holtz distressing ideas and doing some tags.  I will post pictures when I get them finished.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas Season.
Thank you so much to the ladies that responded to Samantha's post.  Isn't she a sweet kitty.

Here are some recent pics I took.  Note,  No toads were hurt in the taking of these pictures!  LOL.
Have a great evening.

Diana, so glad to see you back in action. Wasn't the snow crazy??? And now the rain!!!! Youtube is VERY addictive. I have been watching fiber arts videos for days. The rain makes it easy to slack off and veg out. I just wish I could turn the kids loose on youtube but there's also some scary stuff on there! We have been knitting and making Christmas ornaments for gifts. Keep up the good work.

Oh, a toad. I lived most of my life in Mississippi, but have been in Oregon since 1986, and not once have I ever seen a toad here in the Willamette Valley. I miss them.
