One of my favorite Christmas stories as a child was The Little Match Girl. Although it was very sad when my mom told it, it made me so grateful for my nice warm bed. This painting is accented with pages from an antique book and given an antique finish. Look for it on Ebay tonight. (link at top of page). I am also working on a larger angel painting on wood with lots of crackle.

A while back Jenny from Wonders of Whimsy gave us a look at how she cleaned out her office and organized it for her doll making. I was inspired and finally got around to carving out a little niche for myself in my home. My "studio" is all of 3' X 4', but I usually take my sketching or painting outside or wherever my family is. At least I have my things organized, there are baskets beneath the table too. I hope everyone got out and voted. Have a nice evening.

OH, how cute Cris! I love your little match girl! I always tell that story to the kids so that they realize how lucky they are. :) I like stories that do that.

And I'll never forget my Mom telling me that story of the Little Match Girl. How we would ask her to tell it over and over. Love the painting. Your little nook looks so pretty.

Very cute painting Cris! I also love your little art niche! It's perfect! Even your wall art makes the space even more beautiful!

Creative Blessings,
