2016 in Review

Most of 2016 I spent working on the house.  I painted the kitchen cabinets, removed the carpet in the living room and hallway replacing it with a hardwood laminate.  It felt so good to throw out the old carpet.  The dogs were sliding so much on the new flooring that we have added lots of throw rugs for traction.  Here is my favorite home project from last year:

The stairs make me smile now.  I am still undecided about painting the stairs a different color.

2016 Wedding

We started off 2016 with the happiest of occasions.  Paul and Aisha Moritz married and we celebrated the union in NYC.  Alison, Shad, Seth, Vara and I flew in before snowmageden arrived.  Being from Colorado, we took it in stride and had a wonderful time.  Here is the beautiful couple:

We were able to meet all of Aisha's family and are really looking forward to getting to know them as the years unfold.

Garden Post

A dear friend and I have been working on a garden post to put in our yards this spring.  It reminded me that I haven't posted in my blog for a long time.  How could a whole year go by so fast!  This is a garden post I made last year for a good friend and neighbor:  It was my first attept, but I think it came out pretty cool:

Ornament Rabbit Hole

Forgot to document this rabbit hole I went down just before Christmas - Domino ornaments.  As fast as I made them, they were given away.  Unfortunately my drill bit broke and I had to stop making them.  This is the lone survivor.  It was a fun project and a great way to use up my stockpile of jewelry bits.   I hope to make more .......when the spirit moves me.........

2015 Resolution

New Year's Resolution:  PRACTICE.  Draw, paint, screw up - anything, but put in the time......
It feels good to be back in the art studio working.  Although I am very rusty after 6 months of literally doing nothing creative......

Thanksgiving Pic

So good to have everyone home this year.  And so nice my sister can photoshop so we could come out with one pic in which everyone looks good.  Love the age of technology :)
