Happy Art Year

Why does the new year threaten to bring on a feeling of restlessness for an artist? A "what now" question? Maybe even a "how can I top that" attitude? Silly, since there's nothing new under the sun - only a new or different way to do it. I continually pray for the Creator to give me yet another way to express myself in my artwork. He proves Himself faithful and true over and over again. If I can just be still long enough, He covers me with a sense of knowing. When an idea occurs to me, it's like a sweet gift sent from above. It has nothing to do with a new year's resolution or outlook and it happens by divine appointment, not by the calendar year or my schedule!!! Yes, I am excited (& even a bit restless, I must admit!) for what is in store for Things with Wings - I just need to stay quiet and pay attention so that I don't miss any of it!!! Happy New Art Year, everyone!

Icky Ice

Despite the ice storm we were committed to having our holiday open house. The postcards had been sent, the food made, the living room emptied - we were going through with it! Not ice, nor rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor any wierd combination of all of the above could stop us!

Unfortunately only a handful of brave souls were crazy enough to venture out in the treacherous weather. But we had a fun day anyway! We joked that sometimes we girls just like to play 'art show' amongst ourselves just for fun. We like to get out all the stuff and set it all up, just for pretend. Ok, maybe you had to be there.

Next year, we are going to remember to put an alternate inclement weather date on our postcards. We are already looking forward to next year's Christmas show, and hope you all are doing the same. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us next time! Stinky ice!

Here are some pictures from the day (see what you all missed?!):

This is what happens when you let boys help you hang things up:

Open House, Open as Planned!

We're still open today, the weather can't stop us! So if you're feeling spunky and want to get out and have a good time, stop in and see us. We'll be here, 10-3.
