The elves are done!


"I like what you've done here!", I told them as I was taking photos. I love my Santa collection! My faceless Santa in the middle was created by a dear friend from North Pole, Alaska as a thank you for letting all the sisters invade my Anchorage apartment for a sleep over. We were stacked everywhere, and boy was I glad to have 2 bathrooms there....lol. All but three of these Santas were created by me, Susan of Seasonal Whimsies created the darling Santa with the string of lights in the middle of the smaller group photo. The other Santa created by a wonderful artist Linda, of Gourdqueen Originals, is the Santa on the far left. He is a tall gourd in natural colors with a large hand sculpted sunflower. Now I'm off to take photos of my favorite ornaments on my tree. I hope you are having a wonderful season so far!

Thank you so much for leaving me with such wonderful and comforting words. I truly appreciated it. It is so nice to meet another sister not only in the church but in the arts as well. You create so beautifully! I adore your Santas and your snowman painting! Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be sure to keep up with you and add you to my blog roll.
Blessings & hugs to you,
Shay

Love the design of your blog-so inviting? do you also design for others?

Thanks Suzanne, it's great isn't it?! I wish I could take credit for this, but I can't. If you look up at the left hand corner there's a link to the cutest blog on the block. I am going to see if I can figure this out myself though as I want to design my own pages.

Your blog is lovely! Oh, and the Santa display is outstanding! I clicked on the pics to make them bigger and I fell in love with each and every Santa!

Thank you so much Diane and Suzanne! I want to add a Santa from each of AHA groups members over the next couple of years too. We have so many wonderful artists, you both included!
As for the template, I will be working on designs for auction templates, banners, and am in the process of figuring out the blog backround set up.Anyone interested in a custom design just let me know!
