Wallowing in Christmas...

Self Portrait. David Hayes. 2011. Mixed Media. 6x6

Christmas has come...and gone. Just like that. As it always does. There are times when I wish Christmas would take FOREVER to get here like it once did. When I was a kid. Now...it seems to show up soon after Halloween. Don't get me wrong...I enjoy Christmas immensely...so much so that it's hard for me to give it up once it does get here! Like right now... I should be doing other things. Instead I'm sitting in my family room, laptop on my lap (!) just so I can continue to enjoy our Christmas tree!! Listening to new music bought with Christmas iTunes cards. (Yeah...I do buy other things than apps! I did also buy some of those....)

In any case....I think I will continue to wallow in the Christmas spirit sort of thing for a couple of more days...and why not. Christmas only comes once a year!!

Oh...the January/February issue of Cloth.Paper.Scissors magazine arrived in my mailbox this afternoon. And...and....I discovered that my self portrait is featured along with many other great pieces! Always a thrill to have ones work published!!! So...if you get a chance...do check this out!!! (I created this using a bit of Pic Grunger and Word Foto...and old-fashion collaging. Meaning I did some cutting and pasting!!)

Have a great New Year celebration!! I should be out of my wallow by next week....maybe.

Cool news! Happy for you! And I am not being quick about letting Christmas go, either...a most wonderful time of the year, I say....

I don't blame you for relishing in the last bit of Christmas...some stores already have EASTER stuff out!

Can't wait to see your contribution in Cloth, Paper, Scissors...it's my favorite magazine!

Have a divine new year!
