Cactus Monday

Lest Senita and Joe forget their love since the honeymoon is over I thought I would kick-off my December project with a special ornament for them to hang on their Christmas tree. I am planning to paint one of my ornaments every day and post it this month. Sort of an advent exercise. If anyone would like to join me I would be delighted. Happy Cactus Monday to all of you Cacuteers.

I think Senita and Joe are going thru a prickly time - so this would be good for them!

Soulbrush, you can see my email on my profile and email me your address. I would be delighted to send Senita this little sketch...no charge...a gift from a friend. You should tell her it is about the size of an ATC.

How sweet! I like this idea of doing an ornament painting each day...but, phew...don't know if I could keep up! :)

Lisa, it would be great if you do some ornaments with me. I can't imagine what you will do. Something outstanding no doubt.

I figure this will be a good exercise for me.

Come on Julie, you don't have to do one every day. I am just going to try. After reading about all these people doing some art every day for sport, heck I thought even I could do ornaments. tee hee... Tis the season ya know.

The best holiday gifts are the handcrafted ones. They also take the most pre-planning. You can't last minute shop those!
