Framed Snowman

December 17, 2009

Happy Hanukkah all! And almost a very Merry Christmas.

I have been very busy this past week finishing up our last week of work before a long vacation! After tomorrow, no¬† more work until 1/4. Which means, of course, that I’m taking the red-eye to NJ tomorrow night and not returning until 1/3. I can’t wait!!!

This month, I was able to finish one of the 2 blocks for the December Heart of the Cabin lesson. Sorry, I haven’t taken a picture yet. I won’t be taking it with me on vacation, so I’m going to fall behind on my coursework. I think this is the first time I have ever not completed a “homework” assignment on time in my life. I was thinking about taking some of my smaller projects with me (Long + Short, or the Dragon3), but I think instead I’ll just help my mom make progress on her current projects. Hey Mom, what do you think of this plan? (She usually loves it. I couldn’t let anyone else work on my pieces, but I think she likes that they actually get done when I’m home)

Speaking of Mom, she got the Snowman back from the framer today. I wasn’t involved in the process, other than to suggest that she make it into a piece that goes on as stand rather than the wall due to its seasonality. I think she did an AMAZING job choosing the mattes and frames. I love it!!!

Can’t wait to see it in person TOMORROW!!!!!! (or, well, Saturday, but I leave tomorrow)
