The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day Nine!

Pin It

Wow. If you ever needed any tips to organize you life, office or studio then you might want to head on over and read all of the posts on my blog from yesterday's giveaway. There are so many great ideas! And to think I thought I was organized. Apparently I am not even close. I can't tell you how much I appreciate sharing all of these great tips! Thank you.

The winner of the 12 Days of Christmas Day Eight Giveaway is Jill Rae Martin-Golden.  Congrats Jill! Email me and we will set up your free consultation.

The Day Nine Giveaway is a $150 gift certificate towards one of my paintings. To qualify for the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a post on this blog or my Facebook pages answering the following question.
"I love being an artist because ...".

Dig deep, and take a moment to think about why we are so blessed to be artists. And enjoy your day! 

I have been cooking for weeks for our annual holiday party which is tonight. I have made enough food for over 300 people. My menu is ridiculous ... twenty-four appetizers (including smoked turkey, shrimp, smoked salmon, chicken, steak and ahi) and six desserts. I posted on Facebook the excel document that breaks down the preparation of every food item into steps.  It is color coded reminding me what has to be cooked that day. The grid is set up for the 14 days prior to the party. And believe it or not, I am on schedule!!!!

Meanwhile, you might want to consider signing up for the Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge which is scheduled again for January 2015! It's a great way to start out the new year!

I love being an artist because it keeps me young. Learning at least one new thing every day as I read blogs and take classes. It's a fascinating world.
