Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas and I hope you all have a very creative 2008.

I would firstly like to give you all my personal thanks for everyones support this year, their kind words and encouragement to me with my art work. I feel I have grown this year in my art work but I have shrunk in real, life they tell me it's an age thing, LOL.

So to all of you in Blogger land THANK YOU.

It has been a very busy year for me, my daughter Nicole passed her VCE, WELL DONE Nicole and My son Matthew has had a bad year Health wise, it has been very draining for all my family, but especially him, he handles his health with great maturity for a 15 year old, Im proud of you Matthew. Hope fully next year will bring him better health.

Now lets get to the necklace I have done it was from a clock hand and an old 1850 tin photo of a lady. I have used a peral and an old crystal from a chandlier.

For all of you that have asked, Im working on an etsy site it will be up and running in a couple of weeks, Thanks Nicole.

Well have a safe Holiday everyone,

Jen

What a wonderful piece Jen! I'm looking forward to having a browse around your etsy store.

Matthew is lucky to have a supportive family and of course you as his Mum. Hopefully next year will bring him better health. Congratulations to Nicole, you must be so proud and rightly so too.

I've really enjoyed getting to know you over this past year via the blogging community. Your art is always an inspiration to me, I love it when you post your new creations.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Well done to Nicole and better health to Matthew - sometimes we need some bad times to really appreciate the good times. His illness reminds us to never take our health for granted, it is a gift.
This is another beautiful piece Jan, look forward to more next year.
Merry Christmas!
