That time of Year

It's getting close to Christmas and to start thinking about the gifts I am going to make.  I love making them as my family so appreciates what I do.  Of course, I only make gifts for the ones I know will like it and that I am sure to get a "how did you do that".  Right now I only have one complete and that is for  my brother.

When we were little we would always go to our grandma and grandpa Burnett's summer cabin in Suquamish, Wa.  We would catch the ferry to Kingston and the drive from there was about 20 minutes.  The cabin was about a block from the beach and there were bonfires every Thursday night.  All the neighbors would come down, we would roast marshmallows and hot dogs and just have a wonderful time.

When I was going through my stash of pictures, I found one of my brother and I when we were real young (Bill was 4 years old and I was 2), so I decide to make a shrine.

I am so excited for him to see and remember such a joyous time in ourr lives.


  1. Love your shrine my dear and the sea shell little thingie. Glad you are doing some on your blog and always an artist at heart. xoxo
