I hope you had a fabulous Christmas Day and managed to celebrate with those you love in the way you wanted!
Personally I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas. I love it. I love the decorations, the music, the stories, the sentiments. But there are things I hate: the commercialism, the shopping and it is sooooooooooooo much work. (Much of which I put on myself, of course.) I (unfortunately) tend to be a last minute person and am always crazy busy leading up to Christmas, then working all day to make a nice dinner and then spend Boxing Day on all the necessary but postponed things that should have been done but weren't (like laundry) and are now urgent (no clean underwear left for some members of the family). Then Boxing Week becomes more relaxed. Sigh. Do you ever feel like like this?
Blogging and art suffered. I did all my daily creations though I will admit some of them were a day or two late. But they did get done! And here they are:
Wednesday: A skunk? At Christmas? I have no idea why, he just called to be drawn...
Thursday: Carols and Christmas songs on my mind....
Saturday/MERRY CHRISTMAS!!: Christmas Dinner. I tried this yummy pumpkin cornbread dressing/stuffing that Leah had mentioned. Delicious!!
Sunday: A new toy for Yuri for Christmas!! He is like a kitten again!
My goal for this week is to relax, work around the house, finish up my sketchbook project and CED2010, catch up on some of your blog posts I've missed, do a puzzle and think/write about 2010 and 2011. I hope to post my sketchbook pages as I finish them and take and post photos of my extensive nutcracker collection/ Christmas decorations, so please drop by later!
I hope you have a relaxing and creative week!
