Default New Year Bonus

I woke up to this beautiful view of my back yard today. Great way to start a New Year. The snow is covering every branch and looks so peaceful and nice. It is the wonderful part of the winter.

(and my neighbor who has a truck and plow just cleaned my driveway as a neighbourly gesture, so double bonus)

Also are two of the last Christmas gifts made. The Santa is designed by SKWoodworks and is from the Holiday 07 issue of the other magazine. My husband made the frame from Walnut.

The Guardian Angel Wreath is from SSW Holiday 07 issue by Paul Meisel. The design was changed slightly to use 3/4 inch maple and used shaping instead of layering.

Santa was just finished for a late Christmas eve delivery (whew) and the Angel was finished and delivered to my Sister in Law on New Years eve.

Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone.

snow is nice to look at but I'm sure glad I don't have to deal with it...
it's 50 degress here in my part of California, that's cold enough!

Hi Lois.

I'm enjoying a sunny day in the low 60's here in Southern California. I also lived in New York some time back for a short time and I loved waking up to mornings like that in the winter. Where I am now I still get to look out my bedroom window and see the snow capped mountains and that's nice too. At least I don't have to drive in the snow.

I'm sure that Santa portrait was received with big smiles and lots of happiness. I did one for my wife and it's still hanging on the wall even though all the rest of the Christmas decorations are put away. She plans on leaving it up as her little part of Christmas all year long.

G'day Lois,
I love Snow Pictures Your back yard is a "Picture Postcard" as they say.

You did an extremely nice job on both of those projects.

Very nice work on both. Beautiful as the snow may be, at the moment, I have no wish to be in it. Just a little cool for my tastes at this time.

Lois I really like what you did with the wreath. I want to scale that down and make it into an ornament.
