Frozen Charlotte Head Tree

I mentioned in my last post that I would show you more pictures of my frozen Charlotte head Christmas tree that I made during my visit with Becky.

Indiana Christmas

Attending art retreats in my first year of retirement was a very fruitful thing for me to do. I met my friend Becky from Alabama last October at the Sweethearts On The Homefront in Atlanta, Georgia. I also met Jennifer Grenko there, who I will tell you about in a bit. I flew to Alabama in January to visit Becky and now Becky flew to Indianapolis to visit me! At Sweethearts on the Homefront, Becky and I learned that we needed to name our visits because they really are art retreats, so we named the January visit Alabama Holiday. That was because of a Jenny Holiday (of Everyday is a Holiday) project we wanted to make. This time we named our get together, Indiana Christmas, because we wanted to make a Christmas tree created by Jennifer Grenko of Marshmallow Creations.

Leading up to our visit, Becky and I had many ideas that we wanted to make in addition to the top priority, the Christmas tree. We found, however, that good use of creative energy can be very draining and we needed to get out to explore a little and just have fun. Here are the trees we made, Becky's beautiful pink and aqua lady on the left and my white (frozen) Charlotte head on the right.

Photos from Korea

Since I am only one of two people who have never been abroad, I always enjoy seeing the pictures Dan brings back from his business trips. Here are some pics he took during a recent trip to Korea.
