This is my latest pixie, and her name is "Snowfall". Hope to get her on ebay tonight or Wed. night. Want to get a garland done too. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was very quiet and very nice. Did some shopping too, although I do most of it on ebay and amazon. It's raining, thundering and lightening here today! Not normal for Minnesota this close to December! But it will probably turn to snow tomorrow. Then it will finally look like Christmas around here! Bye for now! Laurie:)

Whew! Finally got some things done to show everyone! It is just a couple of things for today, but have more coming! The top piece is an art squared (4" x 4") in cream and blue with silver glass glitter. The bottom one is art card size 2" x 3". It is also cream and blue with silver. I am pretty happy with these, had lots of fun with them! I did something new on these collages, by adding a little fake snow coated with clear glass glitter to the edges to add dimension and texture. Will probably put these on ebay this Sunday night. And, I'm working on a cute cream and blue pixie and more collages using pink and cream. So, stay tuned!

Wow! What a crazy week last week was! Had lots of school events and was trying to get some more work done on my Christmas items for Ebay. Will be taking some pix of finished items in the next day or two. This weekend we went to the Christmas display on the 8th floor of the downtown Macy's. It used to be Marshall Fields, and before that it was Daytons. Thankfully, through all the changes they have continued to do the Christmas display. This year the theme was Mary Poppins, and they did a great job as usual. The top pic is of Mary flying up the bannister of the staircase. The second is of the chalk drawings and the third is of the old woman feeding the birds. The last is of me and Sabrina at the show, as usual with one of her silly grins. We have gone to this display every year since I met my husband, and now it is even more fun with Sabrina along. I usually buy an ornament too, and then date it, so we can remember which year we got it. Will try and get a pic of that too, to post. Well, better get back to my ornies, so I can get the pix on here soon. Laurie:)

Halloween finally arrived, and Princess Sabrina was able to pull out her pumpkin candy tote and take it door to door. And I even got out the makeup and painted my face ala "Cats". We had a ball, even though it was very cold. But we definitely got our exercise, and brought home lots of candy! I pretty much took off the last week to really get ready and enjoy Halloween. Now I can start working on Christmas items for Ebay. Will post them here as soon as I get something done. Hope you all had a great Halloween! Laurie:)
