Christmas Mail for the Grand Kids…

(Click on any image to open it in a new tab as a larger image)

Like most kids, our Grand kids LOVE getting things in the mail, so I’m going to try to send them something every month.

Here’s the first missive

Some two-sided Christmas Ornaments that I drew on watercolor paper, that they can color and hang on the tree

I played around with stamps to dress up the envelopes.

I hope they like ’em!

Watercolor Bouquet…..

Inspired by @li.la.o,  I was giving a bottle of wine to someone and did this.


Pretty Dang Cute, if I do say so myself!

Arting with the ladies..

(click the images for a larger view in a new tab)

Another great watercolor day on the patio, unfortunately, I forgot to take pics of Jen and Lou’s stuff.  Once I get them, I’ll add it to this post.

We all did these Rose Hips, plus Jen and I did the truck with a tree.

This truck image was interesting – I’d bought the rubber stamp for $7.  We pressed it into wet watercolor on wet paper, and then gently pressed it onto our dry card stock.  Voila – there was the outline of the image.  We inked it in, then painted it; a relatively quick way to make multiple cards of the same image.

UPDATE:  Here’s Lou’s Rose Hips – Fabulous or what?

Arting with the ladies..

(click the images for a larger view in a new tab)

Another great watercolor day on the patio, and this time we were joined by a total newbie, Carla, who had never painted before.

She nailed it, forging forward bravely, and created this pretty little piece.  Here she is patiently peeling the tape off her piece before she adds the final touches.

I did the same one along with her, as an example, plus a Santa Cactus, and a giraffe from the previous day

Here’s what Lou painted – those eggs!

And Lorna tackled a really detailed image, and did a great job, as usual!
