All us Druids are a little hung over today.

All that Solstice grog. Whew. All that Druid family drama. WHEW.

It all started when crazy cousin Biff started to air his grievances.

“Yo,” I said to crazy cousin Biff, “In this family, we keep the i in Druid in Solstice!

I really told HIM.


Ah, the holidays.

Happy Holidays, my dear readers, Happy Holidays.

I know how busy we all are, so I am holding off on the wordy posts until next week — that strangely dead time between Xmas and New Year’s — when I want to get all gooey and gratitudy and WORDY.

[Here's my Art Journal Tip of the day: when you want to do a series of forms (in this case, above, I wanted to do a series of sleds) the best way to find a lot of reference pix is eBay. Really. I got almost all of these sleds by capturing pix on eBay -- for sale on eBay. I love it.  Want to see what an old rotary phone looks like? Find it on eBay. Want to check what a sun dress from the 1940s looks like? Find it on eBay. Want to research the appearance of French perfume bottles? Look it up on eBay. I know, I know: What would you do without me telling you how the world works?]

Enjoy these last lightening days of December, everyone.

    I went to a workshop on art for/by handicapped people, and the wheelchair-bound fellow who spoke did a collage of all the wheelchairs he found on Craig’s list. It was interesting, especially when he pointed out how many of the photos had been taken outside — because so many people have messy houses that they don’t want others to see was his explanation.

    Hm. I feel stymied as to what I might want to look up though.

  • Enjoyed the light heartedness of this post. I’m visiting my daughter and although she and the kids are wonderful, we do have a hard time handling our son-in-law and something light hearted just now was well past needed!

    Festivus. What a clever idea.
    The family gets to air their grievances.
    When can we do that without a CELEBRATION afterwards?
    I see Timaree is enjoying a Festivus.
    Good luck with that, Timaree.
    Thanks, Viv…

    Oh Vivian! Where were you when I REALLY needed you? I’ve been making a board book for my six-moth-old grandson, using the letters of his first name with drawings for each. I’m not enough of a free spirit artist (yet) to create good sketches from my imagination and my books were less than inspiring for reproduction. Never would have thought of eBay. Now I will, though the book is finally finished. Next time and thanks for the fun read.
