Missed you all

Hello my dear friends,
so much has happened over the last couple of months, that I don't know where to begin.
To make a long story short, after some minor surgeries during spring and summer, we also started to look for a new home. The project was very time consuming. Finally we found a new home and we put our old house on the market. You can imagine what kind of work is involved. The move took place by the end of September and the sale of the old one in October. We were without internet connection for a couple of weeks. After painting and refurbishing our house in finally feels like home. My new studio is still in  construction mode and a number of cartons still need to be unpacked

Nevertheless, with Christmas approaching very fast, I managed to create two Christmas cards.
Even so, not all of my supplies are unpacked.

                                                This is a peek into my new studio.

A little Christmas decoration in the garden.
I missed you all and it feels nice to be back.
Have a wonderful weekend and as always thank you so much for stopping by.

Merry Christmas

Hello Marie,
Your cards are beautiful! Such lovely textures and colors. Congratulations on your new home. And yes..what a lot of work but so wonderful that you're getting settled and enjoying now. How lovely that your studio has a window above your work space. It looks like your studio is coming along! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Hello Marie,
I hope your surgeries fixed what was needed! I understand about moving and finding a new home. I went thru the same thing this summer, moved in October and am still trying to settle into it. I wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and I love the look of your new studio. The window is amazing! xoxoxo

Welcome back. Having moved over 15 times in my life, I know how incredibly stressful it is. I love your blog.

Thank you for taking time for the update and photos. I am glad you are somewhat settled in before the holidays. It's a stressful job. Your 2 cards are beautiful. So much the season. And a fun look to your studio..a wonderful window !!! Fun garden decor...if here in IOWA you'd be seeing heavy snow. Maybe up to 8 inches. Peace for you and yours.

My dear Marie! What a treat to see you back creating and sharing with us once again. Your artwork and jewellery is outstanding and we have missed it!
I know a little about the huge changes you have been through lately with buying and selling and to have your studio even partially functioning again is amazing!
Your cards are so beautiful and so too your little Christmas outdoor display in the new garden.
Look forward to receiving your email soon with your new address etc.
Warm hugs sweet friend,
