Mr. Cardinal

Sure enough Mr. Cardinal must have been lurking in the nearby trees while Ms. Cardinal had a little treat at our feeder. He finally came over for a treat of his own. He was pretty hard to capture though, very skittish and nervous. I think he was just watching out for his sweetie so she could eat in peace. What a loving partner!

I was lucky to spy this guy yesterday in between running around. Another few busy days of prep and then some down time with the family is in order. I hope things are coming together for your holiday festivities. I'm feeling a little tattered and worn but I think the end is in sight.

Take care and remember to stop and enjoy the beauty along the way.

Ms. Cardinal

It's been busy here getting ready for the holiday season as I'm sure most of you are too. So not much creativity has been happening in the studio. I did take a few moments to enjoy our friendly Ms. Cardinal visitor. She doesn't seem to have a partner with her at the moment but I'm hoping he'll come along later.
She's been coming around to the feeder each day all by herself. As you can see she's very entertaining.
Her visits are usually not too long as the Mourning doves seem to be chasing her away.
What's a lady alone to do!
Take care and don't forget to watch the beauty along the way.

Tim's tag time...

Well it's that time of year again over at Tim Holtz's blog. The twelve tags of Christmas that is. If you haven't checked it out yet it's well worth the look. Lots of tips, tricks and techniques. I don't usually get around to getting all of them done but I like to play along a bit. So here is my variations of tag 2 and 3. Enjoy!

Great week.

I've had a wonderful week and beginning of the holiday season.

We had a great time at my Open House on Sunday. Thanks to all that came out and for all your donations to our local food bank. I brought in a large box of groceries to help them out during the holiday season.

To start off my week I found out that I won a Holiday with Matthew Mead magazine on Monday morning from Jennifer over at Adventures in Mixed Media. She was very prompt at mailing to me since I received it yesterday. I'd never hear of this magazine and am very pleased to be introduced to it. It has many beautiful and inspiring holiday images and ideas. I love trying new decorating ideas for the holiday so this will be very helpful. Thank you Jennifer.
Also this week I received another item that I won from Ten Second Studio. Back in October they did a raffle for Cancer awareness month with the proceeds going to the Susan G. Koman Fund. There were 10 canvas' to chose to win and I won the Suze Weinberg canvas. Isn't it amazing. Thanks Megan and Cheryl from Ten Second Studio and Suze. I love it.
So that was my amazing week so far. Wasn't that a great way to start December! I'm ready to start the holiday season!

Now I'm off to Tai Chi and tea with friends.
