pink Christmas...

First of all, I have to whine....I just HAVE NOT felt good for the last three days and it is really getting on my nerves..I don't even know what it is but I am miserable...Despite that, I have been pretty busy....Had Jace again today..He felt extra snuggly and and gave me about ten hugs and kisses..when he wasn't shaking his head no no and pulling things off the tree. Julie and I went shopping yesterday and took him and he was horrid....I try not to laugh but it is hard...Why is it funny when you are the grandma (well, actually the auntie) and not the mom? I have about 80% of my Christmas shopping left...I still need to make a few things...an apron, table runner, a couple of pillows and ornaments...I do best under the gun though. No problem. I also got the big tree up...all festive in its pink Christmas sweetness!



I also got a picture of the ornament I made for the "jingle for the cure" pink ornament swap....It is on my tree and it is tilted, but maybe when Sandy gets it she will take a better picture....hint, hint......It is a wood block painted and decorated with a quilted fabric bird perching on it and it sits inside a wreath with siver berries...I like it a lot...in fact, I may have to make another or two...after I make all the other crap...it could happen, or maybe not.



Here it is all wrapped up in pink tulle with a tag I made that says, "may all your Christmas's be pink".



Ok, here I go about vintage trailers again, but just for a second or two....I found this little canned ham trailer model thing when Julie and I shopped and I just have to show it! I think it is so gosh darned cute and I love the little antennas! It is bigger than an ornament, but when our trailer is done, I will hang it in there...Keeping in mind that this is my first winter in Utah, now I know why we will not being working on it in the winter.....It is hecka cold......in the teens and the single digits...and then there is the wind..yep, I am here, Miss cold hater with a passion, whining up a storm.



I also finished Decembers Nature Journal pages for Miss Roc....She loves birds and I am happy to make them so it worked out great....This is paper, fabric, thread, gel medium and anything else that would stick to it....



the back has a pocket for a poem called, "sing little birdie" by Waitie W Swanzy.....here it is in and out of the pocket...




Well, since I have jace tomorrow at 5:30 am, guess I will close for now and go soak in a hot bath and take some tylenol...whine, whine, whine

I love, love, love your predominately pink tree! It looks so festive!

Hope you feel better soon. There's hardly anything worse than feeling crappy, especially when you don't even know why. Glad Jace was there to give you extra hugs! And I am sending you hugs from here, too!

Everything you create just has that Melinda flair and is truly lovely. Sounds like you are adapting well. It is freezing here in MO today (low teens). So I am getting a good dose of cold. Hope you are nice and cozy as you read this ~ much love!

Hey Melinda!!! I love your tree and the trailer!!! That is so cute!!!! I didn't have time to make any fabby ornaments this year, too busy quilting, but it's done! Love all your art! Glad to hear we aren't the only ones freezing our butts off! :D
