Hi. It's me again, Anna. My Mom went off to play Santa, or so she says. She's just delivering cheesecakes and wine and cookies and cards and stuff in regular clothes, but she's acting like it's a big deal and she's running about with flying reindeer.
Mom, you drive a minivan. That's what I say.
So I'm in charge of the blog again today. In honor of flying reindeer, I chose a page from my journal where I collaged birds.
There's torn papers and cut edges, and some of the shapes were pieced from lots of little bits of tissue while the one bird was cut with a stencil I made and is just one big piece.
This is a page that I did in one of Mom's Creative Journalling classes. Sometimes I go as her helper, and sometimes I go as a student. I like doing both for different reasons. I like getting to journal because you never know what will show up on your page when you are done.
So that is it for today. I don't know if Mom will let me blog again tomorrow, but I want to come back again some time.
Thank you for reading and being our friends. And can I say Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah to all of you too.
Sincerely, Anna Santini
PS My Mom says I can't give my email out, but if you send her a note, she'll make sure that I get it.
I am so excited to share with you the lessons I've created exclusively for this year's Make Create Express event. The first one features butterflies and will be part of the free Creative Retreat Weekend July 11-12th. The butterfly lesson will only be available, entirely for free, during this weekend event. However BOTH lessons, the butterfly and a wonderful rabbit painting workshop, are part of the year long Make Create Express. And I'm just one of 25 other artists who have made extraordinary content. Want in? Of course you do! We are less than 3 weeks out from the Creative Retreat Weekend , and to celebrate we are having a Blog Hop Giveaway. I get to give away 1 place in the Make Create Express year long workshop. This is a $120 value - think of the art supplies you can buy with that sort of savings!! To enter just share this particular blog post on Facebook and be sure to tell me that you have done so (shared this) by commenting here on the blog by 8pm on June 25th. I
