Deer Me

A very dear (not to be confused with deer) friend has me make place cards for her Christmas Eve dinner every year.  This year she wanted reindeer. I placed them in a snow globe and voila!  Dashing (or dancer, prancer, or vixen.).

Me, My Elf, and I

I have been making place cards for a friend’s Christmas Eve dinner for many years. Santa’s helpers were happy to help, taking a break after working so hard all year long. Hope your holiday meal is a very merry one.

You SLEIGH me

Oh the wonder of words and idioms.  My fascination with the blend of visual and verbal art continues.  Can you hear the sleigh bells ring, as you listen? Cookies hand painted and trimmed with Rainbow Dust edible ink pens.  Background mat from InkandElmBackrops.

Polar Opposites Attract

This gingerbread ornament was my contribution to a project organized and installed by LoveBugCookies (per the annual holiday gingerbread cookie collaboration started years ago by TheCookieArchitect). A ‘tree’ filled gingerbread ornaments from around the US/world was placed at the Boulder Crest Retreat for Military and Veteran Wellness in DC.  In keeping with my style, I created to a punny ornament that hopefully made our veterans pause for a moment and then smile.  Thank you Beth. Thank you Rebecca.  Thank you very much, veterans and military personnel.
