This has been on my mind a lot the last few days....
as much as we want November to be totally dedicated to Thanksgiving,
it's not gonna happen.
Retailers can't let it happen, small businesses can't let it happen
and even us teeny tiny artists have to think ahead,
as Christmas seems to arrive more quickly each and every year!!!
But I have a solution.
Let's embrace Christmas and Thanksgiving for both months....
and have a Thankful Christmas!
I find myself always trying to remain thankful throughout the year
but it seems that these last few months of the year
always make me especially grateful and thankful.
So...that's how I'm looking at it all ~
as this precious season will soon be gone in the blink of an eye......
And I've made something new!!!!
and you know how I've loved her gorgeous altered ballet slippers right?
Well, using her wonderful tutorial, I've made my very own pair!!!!!
I used Martha Stewart's new acrylic paint ~
the beautiful pale blue color is called "cloud"
I'm not really a blue girl but this blue is HEAVENLY!!!!
I even painted some of my sweet bottle brush trees with it!!!
I'm still working on them...decorating them and such ~
but progress is being made :)
The crazy work table!
The sweet ballet slippers in progress ~
Considering embellishments ~
My finished pair!!!
Wouldn't these make the most amazing gift EVER???
I am so thankful for each and every person who has served
and is STILL serving our wonderful country ~
we respect, honor and thank you all!!!!
Have a very thankful Friday precious friends,
hugs and love,
