2009: A Year of Color.

Even if 2009 has been for me the toughest year since I can remember, it was also filled with colors, and I learned how to fly! ... Also thanks to your presence, your friendship, your support, your prayers. A heartfelt thank you!
I am saying goodbye to the old year sharing my colors with you. Hope you'll enjoy having a look again at some of the creations I made over the last twelve months... in no particular order, just a rainbow of hues down the page.

















































Happy New Year, filled with Abundance!

All is Calm.

... Santa's finally sleeping now that Christmas is over!

Not that much remains at our home of all the (few) Christmas decorations! A pinecone wreath on the cherub in the garden...


I've been making this kind of wreath (any color) for almost 20 years!! I like being sorrounded by things I made (and my family loves that too) so kept some for Mom and our home as well. They can be hung or used as simple ready-made centerpiece with a candle in the middle when you have no time to arrange fresh flowers!

The carved angel my dad gave me is still gracing the hallway!


Now it's time for me to just relax, enjoy calm and my beloved ones, write a few letters, meditate on the important things in life and the year that's almost gone, and think about the New Year's resolutions !
Hope you are enjoying this quiet time too...
Monica.
