Not much to say today

Another origami card made by my friend C. several years ago.

An old non-family photo labeled "Xmas morn 1923". The child is Hellen. I think this was one of the old photos Cris sent me to use in collages.

Not much happening around here either. We didn't get the two inches of snow; only a light dusting, which pleases me much.
I like those origami cards you have. I want to maybe work more with some paper folding. I've done one, which I am saving for a sketchbook page so I can't show it yet. I like the antique Christmas photo, too.

Well I just put some chicken pieces and veggies in the slow cooker, cut up three beets and each time I cut one in sections a quarter of it fell to the floor, so mopped up red beet juice over and over again...but food is being made so NOW I can go create! Do I need to get out of my pjs first? Why? It's Sunday.

I like your folded Santa and the photo makes me wonder if that child, Helen, had a happy time on Christmas morning opening gifts that delighted her?

Enjoy your lazy day too.

KJ have fun w/paper folding. glad you just got a light dusting.

Lynn, beets are a trip arent they? You know that little girl looks so sad doesnt she. And I spelled her name the way it was spelled on the back Hellen. I wonder about that.

Did you get lots of snow?
I have no clue who that little girl is. I found lots of old photos that were my Grandmothers that had no date or names I knew on them. Nice to see these old photos getting used for something. They once meant something to someone.

Hi Suki,
I don't have much to say today either. I'm skipping around blogs catching up.

I noticed what you were eating today is one of my husband's favorite combos.

Well, I'm fully indoctrinated now. Nearly 2 feet of snow! The bonus is I found my portable heater and now the studio is toasty warm. I did an illustration for IF, printed cards and labels and just plain hung out in my grubby clothes.
mmmm, Bliss ;)

I agree Hellen looks forlorned :(

Love the funky folded Santa!

Sometimes it is good that not much is going on....

Enjoy your day!

Like the contrast of the two objects, the origami Santa Claus and the photo of the little girl. The thing they have in common is Christmas...So interesting, makes us wonder what the child, Helen, h as become...
Send you greetings from weet Paris, snow has gone,
love
Andrea

hi suki - sorry you are feeling overwhelmed by life at the moment. it has happened to me too and it does pass. so think of yourself as a mountain and the storm clouds surrounding you will soon blow away. the sun will shine again.

i know you are probably missing your mom today, so it must be hard to have the 'happy christmas' everyone wishes for you.

still, 2010 is a new year with new opportunities to grow and change, letting go of the past.

thinking of you today - sending you lots of love xx
