Last "Art on Friday" of 2016

My blogging break was a necessary one. The past few weeks have been busy with Christmas, birthdays and doctors appointments. I did not create much until late this week but even that was necessary. I am eager to get back to my art room.
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. My Christmas dinners extended over three days! But I was able to connect with all my children and their significant others, as well as my husband's children and grandchildren.
(On Sunday, I plan to share my One Little Word for 2017.)

This last challenge of the year fittingly points to the new year and all the possibilities that it presents. Love the idea of 365 opportunities, there for the taking.

Wishing everyone a blessed, healthy  New Year - much happiness and many, many opportunities!

ABC Wednesday - V and WOYWW

This week at ABC Wednesday - V gets the nod.

With all the upheaval in the U.S., it seemed appropriate to focus on values - so
V is for Values - that are seemingly been lost - around the world.

I may not respect Ben Carson, but I do agree with this quote:

The Roman Empire was very, very much like us. They lost their moral core, their sense of values in terms of who they were. And after all of those things converged together, they just went right down the tubes very quickly.   Ben Carson

Each week at "Stamping Ground", Julia Dunnit encourages us to share our work spaces and what we are creating.

Here's my work space on my dining room table after completely the art tag above.

Here's my work space after carving my new tag for the Carve December challenge

and here's the tag.

ART on Friday

Art on Friday is appearing on Saturday - yesterday was a hectic day. Health issues with my hubby pretty well dominate right now.
But - I was able to squeeze in some art - for my own care!

This week at LuLu Art, there is a new owner/administrator and the quote for the week recognizes new beginnings.

Carve December and Art Tags
I have taken on a new challenge this month - to carve a new stamp each day and create a tag with it and a biblical verse relating to Christmas. Here are the first three stamps:

and the tags I created:

Carve December is the brainchild of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. Check her website for classes as well.
