The Mission at San Juan Bautista

A road trip to San Juan Bautista and the Mission the other day....some nice pictures but freezing weather. This is the most adorable little town with of course The Mission a huge tourist attraction.  On a Monday morning after the Holidays we where almost alone in touring this old Mission and snapping pictures for a few hours. 
Lunch a a Mexican restaurant and coffee at a local bakery before driving home again. Stopping at the Gilroy outlet is a giving since all of a sudden all the girls in the car had to go "potty" just as we drove by the Outlet exit.

THANK YOU.... so very much...

Thank you all so very much for hanging out with me here in My Art Gallery during 2009. 

2010 is around the corner and I am very excited to start the new year with some new thoughts and ideas. 

FIND FOLK ART (on eBay) has turned out to be a very good place for my art. I paint daily and feel happy doing so....if someone loves my art enough to pay for it, yippee... as long as it pays for the canvas it was painted on.  So far all my paintings have sold and I hope they all have found good new homes. For me it is sometimes hard to part with my creations.

2010 Calendar...FREE...

Here is a FREE Calendar for 2010

Use it as you see fit....print, put on your blog....whatever tickles your fancy. My fancy try and enjoy this coming year a little more than I did 2009....don't even know where it went. Feels like I missed out and did too much whining and complaining about things that in the end really does not matter.

As I wait for New Years Eve I want to enjoy these last few days of having my husband home from work and kids out of school. Tomorrow we drive down to San Juan Bautista  for the day and hope for a nice sunny trip. My camera is charging and I hope to get some nice pictures.

Find Folk Art.....

Something NEW is happening with my ART... I have been asked to be represented by Find Folk Art! My art will be sold through them on ebay and online. This is wonderful news and I am very excited.

FFA is a company that sells original art and print reproductions online and offline. They offer me high visibility with  large numbers of national and international buyers of art.

Hope the Holidays are merry for all of you. I am busy trying to wrap all the gifts (boy does that take time). The first hour is fun but after's a drag. 

I will have all 3 kids home for Christmas and can't wait. Baking and cooking is on the calendar for this weekend and the crochet addiction I have lately have to be put on hold for a little bit. 

If you have a white Christmas keep me in mind. Talked to my Mother in Sweden yesterday as she was looking out the window as huge snow flakes landed on her outdoor tree. This time of the year I always miss "home" even if 2010 will be my 21st year here in the US.

I just love these little guys....They seem to be everywhere I go...and I think Santa is bringing me the little key chain one...the green, one eyed monster. They do have names! you might even know what they are (I don't).

Other than that I have spend the morning crying over spilled songs....after loosing my computer to some fatal bug a few months ago I just today realized I have lost songs on iTunes. Good thing I have a 19 yr old son on break from school that can help me with this...

To all of you  Ugly Doll fans out there hope you have a good one. To the rest of you the same and hope your Holiday shopping is further along than mine :)

Making Holiday Gifts....

Having FUN making gifts.... for Birthdays and Christmas... In our family we have two 3 birthdays during the Holidays. 
I made some shabby 4" quilt squares with letters for my niece who is turning one next week. Sort of like a book I guess... Also a super soft flannel quilt in brown and pink. The brown, blue and tan is a crochet project I started yesterday...playing with some fun flowers on top. I think I have 3 afghans started and someday one of them will be finished :)

What are you making for the Holidays?
