My favorite way to make mail art is to use a combination of collaged magazine images and my own sketches and paintings. These examples are from a few years ago.

I love shiny Christmas decorations, especially on the tree.
I also love the handmade ones.
I inherited a couple of boxes vintage Shiny Brites. One year Target had some that looked very much like the vintage ones. Of course I had to add those to my collection.
What kinds of Christmas decorations are you drawn to?

Making art with the grandkids is something I love to do. I really enjoy seeing them explore and develop their creative muscles.
Yesterday we drew with pens and painted each other with watercolors.
Uncle TJ by the 7 year old.
See me on the bottom? This artist is 12.
I get top billing this time. The artist is 13.
She wasn't very happy with her chin....
My turn to give it a try.
We had lots of fun and laughs while trying to paint each other.

I developed this recipe by combining a gluten free recipe with my trusty gingerbread recipe. The muffin texture is moist, light and fluffy. If you didn't know, you might never guess that flour is not one of the ingredients. The addition of molasses adds the perfect rich sweetness to offset the spicy bite of the ginger and cloves. If you eat gluten free and are a fan of gingerbread, you will like these muffins. Feel free to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. I did.
Let me know what you think.
I never claimed to make pretty food folks..,just tasty.
1 c. grated carrots (about 2 fat carrots)
1 c. almond butter
1/4 c. molasses
1/4 c. honey
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
2 t. ginger
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cloves
Mix well. Pour batter into 12 lined muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
