Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!


RedOrb, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

It's holiday time. Time to eat too much, drink a bit, relax, enjoy the season. I've been home but away from the computer, and loving it actually. I've enjoyed (a bit) my time off this week. I hope you're getting some downtime this holiday season as well-sit back, enjoy a warm drink by the fire or maybe even just an extended afternoon nap.

This image is thanks to the new Lensbaby lens-I'm loving the Composer, though I have yet to try out the new "hot swap" optics system. I've also been in studio painting-mostly earlier this week, I'll post more about that after the holiday has passed (for now, let's just say, I've created a new "masterpiece" I like to call "Fiasco in Plum" and leave it at that. :~) Chase is enjoying having me home-he's played ball a bit, but today is very windy and he's afraid of the rustling sound the trees make when the wind comes, so he's cozy and curled up by my side (for now.) I'm sure the "ball playing" time will sneak its way in again, at some point.

We even had a bit of snow today-some snow flurries, which is unusual for Texas at this time of year. I was able to enjoy them though, thanks to being home and relaxing, catching up on things around the house, and enjoying my downtime.

I hope everybody out in bloggy land is having a great holiday season, gets to spend some time with family and friends, and enjoys some downtime as well. I'm sure 2010 will find us all busy enough, so please enjoy the holiday season and spread some cheer around you're little "world," wherever that might be.

I've posted some of my encaustics work up to Flickr if you are highly curious and I'll probably post some more either this weekend or early next week, as time (and my napping schedule!) permits.

Until next time...

Merry Christmas to you too, Carol. It has been windy all day here too, and not a snowflake in sight No matter, feeling happy!

Mmmmm! I love plum (the color). Can't wait.

I hope you are all missing the great blizzard, as this one looks to be scary.

Peruby, normally I like plum (the color) a lot too but this, ahem, "fine" work of art actually looks a bit more like purple-ish colored mud. Not really a pretty thing, though I think I might still be able to doctor it a bit and save it with some wax (maybe. We'll have to wait and see on that one.) Wish me luck though, as I believe I'm going to need a bit of it to get myself out of this "purple mud" jam.
