Drawing Challenge : GARLAND and a break in advent explanation

Tis the season my friends...
to adorn and drape all surfaces with boughs of garland
made from branches collected in my woods
entwined with lights and pinecones
the garlands surround us with the holiday spirit - as we sit down to sip cocoa and create handmade ornaments with friends

Garland, sweet garland...i'd have you up all year round if I could!

See Tiny Woolf for more garland goodness!

my tech stuff is dying...scanner won't scan, camera won't take pics, computer sounds like an airplane trying
to take off....ADVENT 9- present will come when i am rested up. I suppose my computer is telling me to rest...i just had my gallbladder taken out and am recovering. as much as i wanted to upload my garland sketches and keep up with my is out of my hands. off to nap, again!
i'd love to hear from all of you!

i think milady, not to want to put too fine a point on it, you have worked your guts out recently, and you do, NOW, need that rest. so sit at that table already and do ought.

the landscape at yours is stunning. let's have a cuppa.
and thx for playing, stephanie

What a lovely sharing of garlands, Milady. I am wishing you rest and healing. The Advent drawings are lovely, i especially find myself returning again and again to the Blue jay.

Your woods provide such wonders to work with in the creation of beautiful garlands and precious wreaths. The smell of your woods comes right through the computer screen when I view this post dear Milady!
Such a perfect group of creative spirits to spend the day with at the table making art!
Rest up and take good care. Everything will be waiting for you when you are back to your usual self, so you don't need to juggle tech. stuff or juggle anything really. Rest and be well, friend. *smiles* Norma, x
