It's Christmas! What a glorious day! We attended Christmas Eve services last night and today we have opened presents and enjoyed each others company. Even though my son is in his 20s Christmas is still an exciting day. He still rises early, and can't wait for the gifts to be torn into. My husband is just about as bad. Well, we all are. After presents, while they played with the Wii and watched videos, I have done my regular online visits. I explored the junkmarket site and of course Facebook. It's a day for being together, resting and remembering our blessings and our Lord.

I am posting on junkmarketstyle.com. It is a breath of fresh air!! I think of myself as a visionary or found objects artist and today was a day in heaven for me. I plundered through a wonderful flea market and brought home many treasures, but the creme of the crop was an old architects cabinet!! MY MY what a find for an artist who has soooo many drawings and paintings that they are even stored in the tops of closets...tomorrow I start sending them to their new home!

Today is Friday and I must finish art projects for my masters program...class is next weekend and I have barely started anything. I only have 3 more classes of this wonderful program left. I will miss the gals in my class, but everyone is ready to move on. I am creating a garden totem for one project and a mandala for another...I need some inspiration for that one. I am going in several directions and can't seem to zero in on an idea. One thing is for certain I work better under pressure so this weekend I should get finished.

Today I am leisurely enjoying time alone while my husband attends meetings. I have walked by the pool and the beach, and I also sat while a TV crew filmed the Three Tenors. I have had an enjoyable day. I like things slow paced so all of this is perfect for me. While I have this quite time alone I am planning my next art project. It will be a personal mandala from found objects. I am also completing sketches of a mural I will be painting on my new garden shed. In few months I will have completed my masters degree and these projects are for an Arts and Society course that is the final part of the program, before my thesis. I am attending Lesley University through a cohort program and I am having the most wonderful learning experience.
