A couple weeks ago i was INSPIRED to create a whole line of Holiday cards. I made 6 in two days, and i'm SO VERY proud of them!

This one is by far my favorite!
I shall show you some more tomorrow, but until then, i hope you have a GLORIOUSLY festive evening.

Merry Holidays!!




So...life is has been pretty dern busy lately. It's funny though, because i am doing a lot, but it also feel like i haven't been doing much at all.

Life is funny.

I've had a couple art shows in the last couple weekends, which i shall post more about later! But for now, i leave you with a photo of myself, Santa and Chris and Conrad. Chris and Conrad are a musical duo who are quite talented.

I volunteered for a local radio station [z88.3] here earlier in the year, and they had a thank you Christmas party! Twas great fun. Great music. Yummy food. And Santa! :)

Holiday Ho-Down!!

It's been a pretty busy time right now, which is funny considering how little I'm actually working at a job these days. In the last two months i went from working 45-50 hour weeks to working less then 30 hours. Last year at this time i was consumed by work, this year I'm begging for hours. It's incredible. I know I'm obviously not the only one struggling with this, and should consider myself lucky since i still have at least one of my two jobs, but its still scary.

family

Regardless, i still had a VERY nice Thanksgiving. I spent it with my lovely boyfriend, and his fab family. Their TG was quite different from my own. I never had a very big family, and our "family things" never lasted very long, so this was a new experience for me.

christmas holiday

Riley's mom gifted us with a Christmas tree at Thanksgiving, and we set up last Satuday. Isn't it pretty? We sure think so. So much, that we had a fun photo shoot that night.

Hope your having a nifty holiday season!

Busy Lives and Chocolate Potato Chips...

decemberlife2

It has been an EXTREMELY busy month! I will never again complain when i work a measly 40 hours a week and only have one day off a week. For, the month of December 07, i only had three days off. Almost all of those wonderful three days were spent being responsible and getting what needed to be done, done. Never again, will i complain about only getting 5 hours of sleep, when this past week i worked three 16 hours shifts and only slept 13 hours combined for those three crazy days.

All of those crazy hours and hard work has [man, i hate to count my chickens] worked out for me though. I am not only being kept on staff at my new job, but i got promoted as well!! It's a great honor and was the MOST determined I've ever been at a job. Thank GOD it worked out!!

december life

This year i tried to make chocolate covered potato chips, which was WAY harder then i anticipated, but everyone seemed to rave about them! This is the recipe i used;

chips

INGREDIENTS
1 pound high quality milk chocolate, chopped
8 cups ridged potato chips

DIRECTIONS
Place about 3/4 of the chocolate into a heat safe bowl, and place over the top of a pan of simmering water. If you have a double boiler, use that. Heat, stirring occasionally until the chocolate has melted, then continue to heat the chocolate. Stir occasionally. As soon as the melted chocolate reaches temperature, remove it from the heat, and stir in the remaining chopped chocolate until melted. Continue stirring until the chocolate has cooled. Touching a dab of chocolate to your lip will feel cool.

Use tongs to dip potato chips one at a time into the chocolate. Place on waxed paper starting at the point farthest from you and working your way in so as not to drip on your finished chips. Cool until set. You may refrigerate if you like.

[I do have to tell you though, that 'use tongs to dip potato chip part is CRAP! I had to literally paint each chip individually because the chocolate was to think and the chips were to delicate. It took over two hours to paint all the stupid chips. They did come out great though.]

December is Gone?

Holiday Treat

Well..it seems as though, the Holiday season has slipped away from me. I didn't have nearly enough time to devote to Cherry Runway. I did pick up hundreds of hours between my two jobs, and oddly enough, after writing down all of my December sales, i did pretty dern well.

Strange...

So, hopefully i can get down to business again, writing about new artists, finishing my website and devoting more time to Cherry after i see where I'm working at the start of the new year. (Cross you fingers I'm still working at both places!)

I hope you all have a stellar Holiday, and a safe trip wherever life takes you!!!
