Got this in the mail from my friend Cecile ( no link...she doesn't have a blog) yesterday. This is not the best photo, but I hope you can see how cool it is. Her hubby made the wooden holder for the 8 x 10 canvas. The Santa is done on Stampbord, with alcohol inks as the base coloring.
She made the 3 square metal pieces with 10 Seconds Studio tools, a technique we learned @ CHA. She used other techniques that she learned thru the year to complete the piece. I LOVE this & it will be displayed in my studio all year.
Also in the goodie box were homemade candies & biscotti. I am assuming these would be low cal, but I'm not sure! I think I forgot to ask!

And an update from Rick...He said to tell you the card is coming. He's got quite a few emails from folks wondering where the card is and how much longer they need to wait! This is Hilarious! The pressure is on & I can tell he looks nervous! But...I have faith...

I've got to start the gift wrapping soon. That is my most dreaded Christmas task. Every year I vow to wrap as I buy. Every year, it's the last minute rush to wrap. I think it's because being a paper addict, I find it hard to waste paper! I must think that there will never be more for sale in the stores! NUTS!! Anyway...that's my excuse today!

Not long 'til the guy in red shows up.

I hope all your wishes come true!
Wendy & Rick too!
