I'm sorry I'm late posting our weekly chat.
The dog ate my homework. Umm? I ate too much at the Thanksgiving feast and I've been comatose for days. No. Hmm?? I was cleaning out my art studio so C.S.Farmer could finish the drywall. My, my! The other answers were much more interesting.
I want to thank Wendell for visiting with my friends until I could join the group. He told me that he got refreshments for everyone. He said that you didn't enjoy the hay, so he ate it. He remarked that you might have enjoyed carrots more, but he couldn't get the refrigerator door open.
I would like to have a little card/gift exchange with anyone who has ever joined in on the "Chat". I will match people up and take a name for myself. Please e-mail me and let me know that you are interested. Please specify if you wish to exchange just cards, or a small gift of some type. If you are not interested, you need not do anything. (email: email@example.com) This is only open to those who have been part of the "Chats" up to this point (either linked or answered in comments). Thanks! No, Wendell. They won't be sending you carrots. No apples either.
- What's your favorite day of the week? Why?
- What's your favorite Christmas movie?
- Is there a Christmas Carol that's special to you?
- Is there an art or craft that you'd love to be able to do?
- Do you have a live Christmas tree or an artificial one?
- I have always liked Thursday. I'm not really sure why. I guess it's a bit more relaxed than earlier in the week, but not as busy as the weekend. When I was a school girl, I liked Friday because I knew I would have a few days off. When I worked, it never really mattered, because I've rarely worked jobs with a normal week.
- I liked the Polar Express. The music is wonderful!
- I love Silent Night. We have a beautiful stained glass window with Jesus on it in our church. Christmas Eve, the lights in the church are dim and the light behind the window makes its colors illuminate the room, while we sing Silent Night softly. It's really quite lovely. D2 has learned In the Bleak Mid-Winter on the harp. She sings it too. I really enjoy that one too.
- I used to be a potter, but I cannot afford the equipment to get back into it and I can't make it to the shared studio I used to use. It's to costly to travel there. One day!
- We have an artificial tree because of allergies. I love the real ones, but they can be messy when the needles drop all over the floor. We have a huge Spruce Tree outside that I want to decorate one year. I'd like to make bird friendly ornaments, like peanut butter pine cones rolled in seed. As much as I'd like to do that, we have way to many farm cats who would spoil the idea.
I wanted to show you the art that I've been busy with. I've made many of these ornaments. They are hand made and each take a boatload of time. Each ornament starts with the seed I plant in the greenhouse. After the pods are harvested, I dry them out and sculpt the face with clay. (These are copyrighted- for all of you guys in factories around the world who haven't an original idea .) So, Patrice- Tell us what you really think.
Have a great week, my friends.
