TUESDAY, JANUARY 6, 2009

It's such a good feeling
to put closure to a project.
And my December Daily album is done!
I just organized the workroom... once again.
All the Christmas papers & embellishments are
tucked away until next year.
~~~~~~
If you've never scrapped before then this is a perfect
project to try it out. My pages are only 6x6 inches...
how wrong can you go?
Try a Peppermint Hot Chocolate at Starbucks.
I really liked it!
I had a Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate on a different day
and I wasn't crazy about that one.

My resolutions are tucked in the little envelope.
And for my eyes only!!

A card made by Syko in Finland.
She photographs her applique work.
I'm a fan!!
And on to 2009!


My daughter Kristin
is a fan of artist Dale Chihuly.
This was an exhibit Kristin, Darin, and Wendy went to it last Saturday
in Phoenix!
It's there until May so if you're in the Phoenix area before that
you might want to go to the The Desert Botanical Garden
to see it... experience it.
Dale Chihuly is known for his innovative glass sculptures,
and his work is recognized for its grand scale and vibrant colors.
His spectacular creations are found in more than 200 museums worldwide
including the Metropolitan Museum of Art,
London's Victoria and Albert Museum
and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
But, this is his first exhibition in an outdoor desert environment

ENJOY!!












The rest of my photos just disappeared
and I have no clue how to fix it without starting
over.
I'm going to put them on a second post...
SORRY!
I leaned on something

They had some of his glass sculptures here in Knoxville a few years ago. I so wanted to visit, but I believe that may have been around the time when Caroline arrived and life was. .. .well, crazy.

These are great pics. I am so proud of you for completing that album. What a wonderful treasure!!!

We've been lucky enough to see two of his exhibits, one in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, and one in San Francisco this summer. I have mini-albums for both exhibits. Since one was outside and one was in, they were quite different, but both were fabulous.

It does feel good to finish that December Journal! Yours is such a nice record of your holiday season. I decided I wanted one closing page, but I put away all the Christmas scrapping stuff, and have to wait until Matt gets up to find what I want.
