Santa Is Coming

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I am posting this Sunday evening as the weekend winds down. Boy do weekends go fast!  I had a great weekend though. I did a little gift wrapping, finally watched the Second Exotic Marigold Hotel movie, started watching the Indian Summer series, walked. went out to breakfast, went to my department's holiday get together and finally got my studio space cleaned up. I still have some purging and a closet to reorganize, but I will get to those tasks once the holidays are over. I am  happy to be able to walk around the room again and to have everything set up a little bit more functionally. I filled 3 garbage bags with things that I should have gotten rid of a long time ago and my new cubbie unit  I bought over a month ago is finally being put to good use!
Big smile on my face!
 I have this journal page to show you that I finished today. I saw this boys face in a magazine I had. I didn't have to think long to know what I wanted to use it for. So I took a Gelli printed page and painted the border. Then I added the paints squiggles and all the colored dots to frame in the page. I added the boy, the little wooden quote bubble, painted and colored in the quote from the song "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", and also added the TH sticker.
I am linking this collage to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is collage and it is being hosted by Valerie.
So busy week for me ahead, but I get 2 days off this week! Not for fun but some things just can't happen on the weekend. Tuesday I need to go deal with some things with my mom  and Thursday my husband and I go back to Boston to his kidney specialist. Between those 2 things and 3 days at work its going to be quite an adventurous week.
Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

The look on that little boy's face is priceless. Goes well with the song lyrics.

Glad you had a chance to purge some things, something I probably should do more of. Now I suspect your cubby is all filled and ready to be put to good use.

Have a great week, because, like you, the weekend goes far too quickly!
