Vintage Santa Face Original 11×14 Watercolor by Jodi McKinney
Vintage Santa Face Watercolor.
Hi Friends –
It’s been a hot minute or two (aka almost a month!) since I’ve posted here on my CreativeLifeInBetween blog.
And I have to admit… I have really been enjoying the blogging break.
I have been enjoying lots of time with family and friends and keeping busy at work.
I’ve cried tears of sorrow and loss with a few friends/family who have lost parents recently.
I’ve cried tears of joy as friends celebrated homecomings and moves.
I’ve cried tears of frustration at myself for making stupid mistakes.
I’ve smiled so hard I thought my cheeks would break seeing first time “school” pictures of my sweet grandie girls.
I’ve celebrated and toasted new beginnings and successes with my adult kiddos.
I’ve laughed so hard with friends, it made all the frustrations of the day disappear.
In other words, I’ve been living every day to the fullest and cherishing the moments.
And this weekend, I found time to play in my art room, and I created this Vintage Santa Face Watercolor Painting that I have to say I am sooooo pleased with it makes me smile!
My DIL, Colleen, and I are ramping up and getting ready for our biggest sale of the year at the Mars Fall Craft Show being held Saturday, November 23rd at the Mars High School and Christmas Open House at Berry Vine Gifts November 15-17. If you are near, we hope you will come see us. If not, feel free to check out our McKinneyX2Designs Etsy shop!
We’re also getting ready to celebrate a special birthday for a 3-year old girl and her 61-year old Pap! (Both who I love more than life itself! <3)
Hope you are all doing well!
Sending Cheers & Hugs,
PS I’ve been posting more on Instagram if you hang out there and would like to follow.
