Share and Tell

This is another page I did on our trip, that I wanted to share. I wasn’t sure where this one would go at all, but liked the subtle colors and phrenoloy images. I do feel like I had time to collect my thoughts a bit. We did a lot of activities both on and off the ship, but I was able to enjoy two days on board, with lots of pool time. I used to kind of freak out if my words didn’t end up fitting into the space I allowed, but as you can see here they didn’t, and I was still pleased with the page. That is the fun thing about journals, they don’t have to be ‘perfect’, just perfectly fun.
Here is a picture of us as we walked onto the ship. They snag pictures of you all the time. I still need to upload the pictures from my camera, but I’m too pooped tonight. The one picture I didn’t get, was one of my 17 year old in the hot tub full of girls! He was one of two young men on board, with a whole host of teen aged girls. Needless to say, he had a great cruise-lol!
I did catch up on laundry, and got the house all decorated for Christmas today! It really puts me in the mood. Dug out all of the Christmas CD’s too. Dashing through the snow…

Home Sweet Home

We are home! It seemed like we were gone forever and over so fast if that makes any sense. It was a wonderful break from everyday life. I met an artists selling prints of his work on the island of Tortola. What a life! Painting in lush, tropical surroundings and meandering down to the beach when the cruise ships come in.
I, of course, took my journal and my travel art kit, and by starting several pages at home, was able to complete them while I was away. Can’t be away from art for too long:-) I will share more later, but here is a page for now. Glad to hear you had lovely Thanksgivings, shared with family and friends.
Just for Christmas, I am offering free shipping in the US and Canada the first week in December, on any purchase of an original piece of artwork from my etsy shop.
