On the 10th day of Christmas ...


I just completed my Christmas ornaments for the 12 Days of Christmas swap which Lelainia Lloyd is hosting. I had to make 12 ornaments which I'll mail out tomorrow morning to the US, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. Each one has the basic same design with slight differences (I don't enjoy making "assembly line art"!).

My ornament is for the 10th day. It is made almost entirely of recycled materials because I love to reuse stuff in new ways. Unfortunately, I can't show you what it looks like, but here is a little teaser ... what it looks
like ... wrapped.

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser ...





"Life is the art of drawing without an eraser" is a quote that appears on page 2 of the October calendar I completed for Liz.

This month has been a busy month for me ... my mom is seriously ill and was admitted to hospital on the 14th due to complications of a diabetic foot (she's still there), I've took a 3 week personal development career course and started a new job, so I haven't been blogging very much. However, I have completed some tasks.

Here are some photos of October calendar. I tried to use lush "autumn-y" colours and rich fabrics. For a close up peek at these pages, check out my Picture Trail at: http://picturetrail.com/canada_eh
