On the Sixth Day After Christmas…I cooked sticky rice and Chinese food for lunch and began organizing my studio for the new year!

On the Seventh Day After Christmas…I cooked the Lucky Lunch and made bean sauce!

On the Eight Day After Christmas…I  picked up books from the library and mailed off art

On the Ninth Day After Christmas…they took down the Christmas Tree and undecked the halls while I made crispy fried Chicken, home made potato salad, corn on the cob and rose and baked yeast rolls.

On the Tenth Day After Christmas…I will did indeed make art all day long! I also took a nap and made peanut brittle and walked Molly and got a great massage from Wayne! It was a rainy day, really beautiful and just perfect for coffee and ginger snap cookies…it was a ginger snap cookie kind of day!

On the Eleventh Day After Christmas…(today) we’ll go pay the electric bill and possibly mail off art I sold yesterday but isn’t scheduled to ship until tomorrow so I may not rush to get it together this morning and when I do I’ll also stop by the market for

coffee…Buttery Caramel!

2 cartons of half and half for oyster stew this week

Just thought…I want to mail Sara’s package tomorrow so I’ll be making the post office trek tomorrow and going by the store too….so only the electric today…more time for coffee and art and walking…so yay!

Yesterday, I finished another panel for my big big big peace flag/quilt that I may enter in the fall fair! I also made the first in a series of kitchen mini flags that I’ll quilt today. I love love love quilting now!! I always knew I would! Ooh, today I’ll take pics of my studio since it’s redo on Saturday! For now, my laundry is ready for the dryer and I’m ready for more coffee and to make some art. I slept well past four am today! It’s already 6:38 am but I feel good about the time. It’s not going to get away from me today just like it didn’t get away from me yesterday! I wonder if my glasses will come in this week? Today starts the Thriving Artist Summit I’m signed up for too!!! I’m so excited! 2015 is the year I come into my own!! I just know it and now Wayne is on board with my art too and together there’s nothing we can’t accomplish!

I hope y’all have a great day!! A brand new week in a brand new year!! Did y’all see Cosmo’s moon this morning? It was huge out here in my neck of the woods! Really magical! I had to talk to the man on the moon, you know I did! Meet me back here tomorrow ok? Peace Love Art ~DSCN1532
