This weekend (tonight and Sunday afternoon) are the concerts we've been practicing so madly for, and the week has been one of practices, tech rehearsal and dress rehearsal. They will be amazing concerts, with choir, brass, videos, soloists, ensembles and so much more. If you've not attended in the past and you're within driving distance get your tickets NOW.
To add to the fun, there's a huge trailer parked in the long driveway, waiting to accept dead shingles from the roof that blew a fuse last week. If the rain stops, the crew can actually peel and re-roof. It's a good thing I don't need to get out of the studio door right now.
I have managed a few moments in the studio as well, trying my hand at creating a stamp from an over-sized eraser in honour of Balzer Studio's #CarveDecember challenge. She's carving a stamp a day in her studio, and invited other artists to play along. This is day one for me (on December 11th or so), and at the rate I'm going, it's likely to be the only one I'll manage - this year.
I managed to actually finish a piece that was started way back when in July. On a pastel pink canvas, the alcohol inks started the process.

It must be getting close to Christmas - the predominant colour in this post certainly says so. What are you doing to get ready for it? Have you got your Christmas creating done? Started? Mused about it? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below, with links to what you're doing. Happy creating.
