new week : new month

Good Monday to you!

It's the beginning of a new week and a new month. White. Fresh. Open to possibilities. {If only this truly was my cheerful mood on Monday mornings!}

The photo above shows various views of current progress on my WALLPAPER PINHOLE PROJECT that I've been wanting to share with you.

Saturday I went to the Holiday Art Fair here in town and bought this necklace made by Ann Andersson of Swede at Heart Designs : Her website : her etsy shop : and I just discovered her blog. Ordinarily I would NOT buy something for myself this close to Christmas, but it's a lovely piece for a sweet young person. She is donating a large part of the retail price to help with Caden's medical bills. At the Fair I also ran into another friend who is a painter, Laura Nugent : her flickr. She and I met a year and a half ago when we both were taking a print workshop at the Arts Center.

Go see pictures of a great Christmas Market here, on Bibbi's post.

I hope your new week and month begin well,
