Design and Things

I usually buy a wreath when we buy our tree (last year it was made of dozens of rosehips and so pretty.) But this year, since we live in the shadows of firs & cedars, and I couldn't stop thinking about Amy's beautifully disheveled wreaths , I thought I'd gather things and attempt my own. I made it in the midst of the the busiest time of year for us - a span of a few weeks in which nothing remotely festive will happen if you don't fight for it, tooth & nail (I know lots of you can relate.) I laid down some kraft paper, hauled in my branches & berries, made some hot chocolate (gifted from one of my favorite girls) , put on the Charlie Brown Christmas album, and wreathed myself into oblivion.
I took a Zentangle class last weekend. Lots of fun and I find myself doing some of these doodles every night. It's a good way to unwind after dinner and before I knit! The bottom one was done in class, and the top one I did the next night. I find that I have to slow down and be more careful in my drawing else I end up with a mess! The doll I was working on?
Good morning! It's "Cards on Thursday" over at the Bella Blog , and I have a couple of cards that are being shared! The theme this week is Easter/Spring cards. Bella products are perfect for the bright, springy colors that I was going for! :-)
