At school we had a stocking decorating contest. I was surprised at the amount of teachers that participated. There were 22 stockings for the kids to vote on as being the best. The stocking that won lit up! Talk about being competative! Anyway, here is my stocking. Can you tell, I just love making these kids?

Here is a picture of the SheArt angel that I made at school with my friends Katey and Olivia. I hope they post pictures of their angels too because they turned out so cute! She spreads Christmas cheer

Since Christmas is over, I decided to change my blog header. It is really dark, but I like it! Aren't snowflakes just beautiful! We have not seem much snow this year and I am really looking forward to the first heavy snowfall.

This is the last girl I wanted to make for Christmas. She came together really quickly once I had what I wanted her to say. This is for my friend at school who takes beautiful photographs.

Here are a couple watercolor ornaments that I made based upon the class "The 12 Artsy Ornaments." There were a lot of fun to make.
I have so much I want to get accomplished today all dealing with Christmas! Doesn't that sounds like a wonderful day? Anyway, as I was surfing different blogs, I found a couple of sayings on Junelle Jacobson's blog that I want to turn into SheArt girl sayings. Look into the eyes of those you love. See God~ Let go of expectations... and see it all as a sweet gift of grace. Won't those make beautiful girls?

Here is what I have done so far. I LOVE making these and will probably do more soon. I want to try them on a piece of paper and not just on canvas.

Wait until you see them! They are turning out cute, cute, cute! I tried to sound like Christy or Junelle while I typed that. :) All I have to do is add the final layer of mod podge and they are done! I will post a picture tomorrow before I add the mod podge in the event it messes them up.

Since some of my friends like to design clothes, I would like to make an assignment. Design funky snow hats! Sketch out several different designs and this week, we will try to make one after school. I can't wait to see what you create! I'll bring my sketches too, so don't think this is just for you. Hey Joni! If you play along too, we would love to see your hats too!!!

I know these are pretty plain, but this year it is the best that I can do. I really like how clean they will look and they should not take me a lot of time to complete them.

LOL! I am going to keep this blog. I checked most of the links on my old one and very few of them are working. It would take a lot of work to edit it and I really like the way this one looks nice and clean. hahaha By the way, I started coloring!

Yes, I really, really enjoy making these girls. I am giving most of these away as Christmas presents. I have two more in progress and one at school that I am working on with my girls. Hopefully, there will be time tonight to start on my Christmas girl.

Here are a couple more girls I wanted to show you. I purchased a couple 12x12 canvases today for my Christmas girl. At Michael's they had them on sale, buy one and get one free. I paid 7.00 for four 12x12s. That was a pretty good deal! Anyway, here are my girls.... This was my very first girl. I really like the way she turned out.
I so enjoy working on these SheArt girls. I can go to my craft room for just 20-30 minutes in the evening and forget about everything. This girl says...She felt loved by her family

Here are the girls I have been working on for a while now. I keep going back to them and adding something here and something there, so I can't offically say that any of them are done except for this one. She is my favorite and I love her. She sees the beauty in every single snowflake
