A big thanks to those who asked: we are safe from the flooding you've heard reported in Western Washington. Our area had no flooding and minimal power outages. My heart goes out to those who have lost their homes and loved ones. Keep them in your prayers.
I have started a big project for someone very special in my life (hint: she is 2 years old) and will post it when completed, hopefully in time to mail for Christmas.
For those needing some Christmas art inspiration, quickly go to Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas on his blog. Oh my it is fantastic. If the little love of my live didn't have top priority I would be a giant inky mess right now. The techniques can be applied to any season and my brain is getting ideas!
