A work in progress

A friend of mine asked if I would make a painting for her daughter's bedroom. I'm working on the background right now. I hope she'll be happy with the end result.

Pawprints in the snow...

Oregon winters are always pretty cold but we don't always get snow in the valley. Last year we had a very white Christmas so I wasn't expecting any snow this year. I was surprised when it started coming down last week. My mom, my sis-inlaw, and I went to see New Moon(again) and when we left the theatre it was really coming down. Sadly it didn't last long with the temperature warming up the next day. The kids and the kittys had fun playing while it lasted.
I still can't believe it's 2010! The holidays went by so fast. We still need to take down the tree and put away the decorations. I have a long list of things I'd like to do this year: mommy daughter/son dates, practice my French for my trip this summer, start running again(a friend wants to do a 5k this spring), make a banner for my etsy shop, stitch, paint, create, paint my bathroom, read the latest house of night book, start cooking again(have had no desire lately), get a new wardrobe, start writing again, and be ready in time for next Christmas. I cut it too close this year. I did a little cleaning today and started on a new painting for a friend. I hope you will be able to accomplish whatever goals you're working toward this year! We can do it! Happy New Year!
