A New Year for Mosaic Monday

January 11 mosaic

Have you cleared your Christmas decorations away yet?  I am working on mine today.  We have had warm temperatures lately and yesterday a great deal of rain.  Today we are down in the minuses again.  My husband is out counting birds for the Bird Count done yearly.   I am counting the birds that land in our birdfeeders at home.    I received an invitation recently  from Kristy at Life-n-Reflection to receive her templates for a calendar and learn how to use Photoshop to make my own calendar.   It was a  lot of fun.   The first square shows my January 2011 calendar.  The remaining squares are just a mishmash of photos from the present season showing yellow roses that my Dad brought, the pinky violet that is blooming on the windowsill, a plate of cookies, some icicles on our back porch, a little bear that my husband put in my stocking, the seed head of a milkweed with a snow cap and a landscape from the river near to us.  As many of you, I am looking forward to the new year with new beginnings and new things to do and learn.  I hope that you will visit often.  I love your company. Have a great week.  

More mosaics can be found at Mary’s for Mosaic Monday.   Come join the fun.

Stunning mosaic this week Val. With the temperatures so cold we will have snow again, yuck. Have a great week. Jen.
How clever of you to make a calendar. You're really going places with your PhotoShop.

Will begin the challenge of storing the decoration soon. It's hard to put it all back into boxes. But then I treasure them all the more with the grand memories the evoke next time. Wishing you well! Cathy

Great job! Wishing you a wonderful New Year!
I love the calendar. I could not find the templates. I will be making a calendar next year for presents. This year I did blank note cards.

Happy New Year!

I was enjoying your mosaic when I noticed your weather in your sidebar. We are enjoying similar temperatures right now, however the weekend will be much colder here. Hope you are staying warm. Have a great week.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
