Fred..I really like your Santas. You and Geri ought to get together.

Geri...I like your sketch of your hand. One of these days I'm going to give colored paper a try. I thought about making my own by putting a wash over mixed media paper and drawing on that.

 

Marsha... I wasn't trying to lesson the effort and talent you've put into your latest painting in the memory of the children and teachers. I've had a tough time with the level of violence and the loss of so many innocent little lives.  I know we all are heartbroken. You did a very very good job on that memorial painting.  The colors are perfect.

Fred, your Santas are great. They are the kind of ornaments I like on the tree childproof and whimsical. I fear Geri is right!! Well guys I am off to the grands so hope you all have a great Chritsmas or other holiday season ,don't eat too much and hug all your loved ones and enjoy life. If we are still here after the 21st I will see you in the New Year! Oh yes Catherine I got your snowy card too. Not sure if I said so with all the e-mail going crazy. Ho, ho, ho!!

Jen C & C's always welcome

Fred, your wooden Santas have the shapes of old-fashioned glass ornaments. Unique and clever!

Marsha, this drawing of a child's hand and an adult's hand is beautiful and heart-rending.

FRED,   It was Marsha  (me) that asked you for that information.   I am familiar with the Colwood items.  I have a dremel, with no temperature control.  I was wondering about a temperature control unit and the razortips but they are very expensive.  My stuff has been packed away in the garage for years.  I used to make a lot of jigsaw puzzles with my dremel saw and painted and decorated with the woodburning,   but when we moved here I never set it up again.  My grandkids still have all the puzzles.  My Ex-husband has a shop in Oregon where he does mega amounts of woodworking and sells it.

FRED:  I hope you had a good time and that your gift was well received just as that cup of warm spirits was given to Sarah.  What a nice memory...  I bet that is you bringing her a cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate or hmmmmmm.   Let us know.
