Christmas card and pages…

I want to show a beautiful card I got last week.  It’s a wonderfully  handmade card by Lee.  I agreed to exchange Christmas cards with her…in my mind…card=postcard 😀  I made a postcard for her, in fact, it’s the card on my header.  I don’t usually show cards before the receiver gets them (forgive me Lee)  but I needed a Christmas photo.  The other card I made that day ended up in the trash.  Here is Lee’s card…the bears are so-o-o cute!!!

Here are two pages from my Strathmore Journal.  The big flower piece, I started months ago and decided to finish it…it needs something but I didn’t know what…so I moved on from it.  The abstact is about me trying out a new shade of purple 🙂

This the last part of a poem by Joyce Carol Oates, entitled The Time Traveler from a book of poems by the same title:

“I don’t recognize

that person,

you whisper,

who is that person?

A stranger’s face


in a mirror.”

These are my sentiments about getting older…I don’t have many regrets…a few…or I wouldn’t be human….but sometimes I don’t who that old lady is staring back at me in the mirror.   No, I’m not depressed…or going through the holiday blues…just happened that I found the poem last week.

    Lee’s card is so cute. I just love her art. And your Santa card is, too. Of course, you know I like both of the other pieces you showed….they have purple in them! I really like the abstract….love circles.

    I know what you mean about that face in the mirror….I have an old lady at my house. I don’t know who she is or when she first appeared but she’s definitely here!

    I’m so bad about getting out Christmas cards… it’s kind of embarrassing.
    Anyone receiving one of these is clearly very fortunate!

    Thanks for sharing all of this lovely art! Over the weekend, we watched video from right after I had each of my daughters–just three and four years ago. I had this lovely new mother glow. Then we took a photo of ourselves after we got our Christmas tree this weekend, and I looked like this really tired mother of two preschoolers. Where did that glow go? It’s not the same face in the mirror as just a few short years ago!
